martin h 346932 92 Montaignu! either
Montaignu!
One of the finest harvesting teams in Belgium is found near Scherpenheuvel/Montaignu. Bert van Olmen already tipped me for that one in 2003, but it took same years before I finally found this mysterious contractor VanderVelpen in action.
I visited the company in the autumn of 2004, but on the first day, they had no work. Second day only the old lady was home and didn't know where the team was harvesting.
Searching and searching, but nothing to see in this hilly country. In 2005 I had a small car-accident, and when my car was fixed, the maize-season was over. Last October I went to the company again, and mr. VanderVelpen told me where to find the harvesters. Again searching and searching, but again I couldn't find them. Grrrr!
A few days later I went together with Jack back to the hills of Scherpenheuvel, and finally we found them and were able to photograph these guys. It took some years, but the result may be there!

The frame of this huge trailer was build by Record, but the Vandervelpen guys build the silage box themselves.

The red three-axle with the new Fendt 924.. Note that the both rear axles do steer, instead of the more common configuration of the first and the last axle..

Mr. VanderVelpen turns out to be a wise man: He uses a truck for harvesting the first rounds..
