New Sgariboldi Titanium Series Self-Propelled Vertical Mixers

SELF-PROPELLED VERTICAL MIXER FEEDERS– FROM 30 TO 40 M³


THE REVOLUTION IN GRIZZLY VERTICAL SELF-PROPELLED MIXERS

TITANIUM SERIES is a new generation of vertical self-propelled mixers of medium-high volume, designed for all farmers who need to manage mixes with a high specific weight, with a machine that also offers outstanding loading performance and great manoeuvrability.


Until now, mixes on this scale required the use of 3-axles machines, whose overall weight and limited manoeuvrability not only slowed operations down but also led to a more expensive basic machine and costlier maintenance.

SGARIBOLDI HAS THEREFORE EXPLOITED THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES IN ORDER TO DESIGN A SERIES OF MIXERS CONCEIVED FOR LARGE COMPANIES, AIMING FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS WITHOUT COMPROMISE.


From this objective came the TITANIUM series, a new generation of self-propelled vehicles presented in an exclusive guise, built entirely with special steels.

Also designed to optimise loading times, it features the largest cutter on the market: 2,200 mm width and 200 hp power. Combined with a loading channel 35% wider than previous versions, this make the series unique of its kind.

JOHN DEERE STAGE V ENGINES GUARANTEED 5 YEARS

Available in 3 powers:

248 HP | 255 HP | 305 HP

EXTRAORDINARY LOAD CAPACITIES

Available in 30 – 32 – 36 – 40 m3 versions it is capable of extraordinary load capacities ranging from 13,300 to 17,000 kg depending on the volume.


ULTRA-LIGHT, BUILT WITH SPECIAL STEELS AND ONLY TWO AXES

A series of ultra-light machines because they are built with special alloys that allow enormous loads to be handled with only two axes, and combine the typical efficiency and durability of Sgariboldi mixers with a high degree of manoeuvrability.


ONE IN A KIND

  • Ideal for companies with a high number of animals and high productivity
  • Lightness and manoeuvrability, thanks to advanced technology and just 2 axles
  • Unprecedented load capacity
  • Super-resistant frame to ensure very high levels of reliability and robustness
  • Fuel consumption reduced by 10% due to the reduced overall weight, improved hydraulics and reduced friction

TITANIUM THEREFORE ENTERS THE MARKET WITH THE KEY ROLE OF A GAME-CHANGER, SUBVERTING ALL THE NORMS FOUND IN LARGE MIXERS AND OPENING THE WAY TO A NEW ERA OF ULTRA-LIGHT AND ULTRA-RESISTANT MIXER WAGONS.

New Holland Targets 2021 Availability for Methane Powered Tractor

New Holland Agriculture is driving forward its Clean Energy Leader strategy, consolidating its leadership in alternative fuels and extending its scope with innovative solutions in the Specialty sector.

Carlo Lambro, New Holland Brand President, stated: “We have pioneered sustainable, innovative solutions for some 14 years. We developed the Energy-Independent Farm model, showing how a closed-loop between agricultural production and energy generation can make farming CO2-neutral, or even carbon negative – with significant benefits for our customers. This year we are taking a further step into turning this into a reality, as our methane-powered tractor enters the New Holland range.”

Methane-powered Tractor to Enter New Holland Range in 2021

The first production unit of the T6 Methane Power tractor, a cornerstone of New Holland’s Energy Independent Farm concept, was presented at the Agritechnica show in 2019 and now targets full commercial availability in 2021. Field trials are in the final stages and by the first half of the year production units will be delivered to selected customers in Germany, France, Italy, the UK and the Benelux – all key markets for the T6 tractor where biogas production is advanced. The Methane-powered tractor will enter the New Holland range by the end of the year, and be available to all customers in Europe and other markets across the world. This development will further consolidate New Holland’s undisputed competitive edge in alternative fuels solutions.

Clean Energy Leader Strategy Extends Scope with New Partnerships

The Clean Energy Leader continues to extend its scope to explore new areas of innovation through partnerships. The first one is with Italian Barolo wine producer Fontanafredda, in a project that aims to achieve carbon-free vineyard operations. New Holland and FPT Industrial are testing in their vineyards a new bio-methane tractor derived from a standard New Holland TK model. It is powered by the new FPT Industrial F28 engine, crowned Diesel of the Year in 2020. The tractor tested in the Fontanafredda vineyards is powered on bio-methane, with the aim of accomplishing the first CO2-free wine production – an important step towards the decarbonization of the grape growing chain.

In another partnership, New Holland has developed with Italian implements producer Nobili an innovative concept for the electrification of implements for vineyards and orchards. It combines the New Holland T4.110V with an e-Source external generator compliant with AEF High Voltage guidelines. In an industry first, the generator driven by the tractor’s PTO is the only source of energy powering the new e-Sprayer and e-Mulcher. This groundbreaking innovation was recognised with the Technical Innovation 2020/21 Award at EIMA International.

New Kuhn Krause Excelerator XT 8010 – Exceler8ing the VT Market

Building upon the legendary field performance of the Excelerator 8005, the new Kuhn Krause Excelerator XT 8010 continues to offer customers a 1 to 5 degree gang angle adjustment for proven VT performance with an XTended gang angle adjustment of 6 to 8 degrees for a more aggressive tillage action.

Unlike some competitors, the Excelerator XT 8010 design avoids double-digit disc gang angles and shallow concavity disc blades, which can create a less than ideal VT seedbed. Kuhn designed the Excelerator XT 8010 to maintain a superior vertical tillage seedbed, leveling capabilities, speed of operation, uniform residue distribution, plus a consistent pass-to-pass finish. Sizes offered include 30, 34 and 40-foot cut widths.

Product Features

  • Excelerator XT 8010 Gang Angles: adjust from 1-5 degrees for true vertical tillage while an XTended range of 6-8 degrees results in more aggressive action.
  • Combination Blade Spacing: provides optimal soil displacement and residue sizing from the 7″ front spacing while maintaining reliable soil and residue flow with 8″ rear.
  • Mid-Mount Tines: a single row of HD 5/8″ x 27″ x 7″ tines redistribute residue concentrations, provide initial clod sizing and begin the leveling process ahead of the rear Excalibur VT gangs.
  • New Frame Design: incorporates dual cylinders on each wing section to relieve undue stress on the frame and application of uniform constant-flow hydraulic wing down-pressure.
  • Optional Hydraulic Gang Adjustment: provides in-cab gang adjustment performed on the go from the tractor cab. Vary gang angles independently front to rear or together.
  • Excalibur VT Blades: Kuhn’s 32 flute, 22″ hybrid blade design, continues to offer exceptional wear life and ability to retain a cutting edge as it wears.
  • Star Wheel Treader: rear finishing attachment remains as a premier attachment that has been tough for the competition to emulate. Superior leveling, residue incorporation and clod sizing.

Contact us anytime for more information regarding the new Kuhn Krause Excelerator XT8010!

When Does Leasing Tractors Make Sense?

Have you considered leasing a tractor for your operation but are on the fence about it? There are several factors to consider when deciding whether it makes more sense to lease vs. purchasing tractors for your farm operation:

Leasing vs. Owning a Tractor

  • Leases can offer nice cash flows to have a fixed cost to operate equipment. Does not show up as a liability on the balance sheet, and puts a value on it at the end of lease.
  • Lease payments are an “expense” vs. owning and depreciating the whole value of the equipment. Check with your accountant to see which is better for you.
  • Not all leases are equal. There might be 2 identical tractors, one having a lower payment, BUT the purchase option at lease end could be much higher. So be sure to look at the “big picture” and not just the payment amount.
  • Leases still require customers to cover equipment with insurance, similar to owning the equipment.
  • Lease companies will also charge the customer Property Tax, similar to owning the equipment. This could also just be built into the lease, so be sure to ask and compare.
  • Tax tip – if you are quoting a lease and can have it end / returned by December 31st instead of early the next year, you will likely avoid property taxes on it for the next year. Check with your county for property tax dates to be taxed.

Questions to Ask when Leasing Tractors

  • What happens at the end of the lease? Are you obligated to purchase the equipment at the end, or do you have the ability to return it? Does the purchase price at the lease end look attractive today? If you do return it, what are you liable for?
  • What all is included with the lease? If the lease is a tractor with guidance on it, does it come with any subscriptions on it? If you want to upgrade it to an RTK network, how does that factor in?
  • What is the warranty coverage? If something breaks, you need to know who is responsible for payment. If you are leasing a new unit, it will usually come with new factory warranty, but that may not last through the duration of the lease. Consider extended warranty coverage options if offered.

If you have any questions regarding leases, or are interested in leasing equipment for your business, please contact us. Leasing can be a great option for you. Please consider everything mentioned here, and not just the cheapest payment you can get up front.
