Grassharvest in Sweden
Hello farmfriends

This is how some farmers harvest grass in Sweden.
The mower is a Taarup “butterfly” 5090bx and the tractor is a NH8870A, if you look carefully you can se the frontmower is turning as the frontlinkage turns with the supersteer, very useful in our small and tricky fields to avoid leaving grass uncut. (Hope my English is correct…)

We us to trail the wagons after the spfh, that save us a tractor in the field and personally I think it’s more convenient to drive the harvester like this. I don’t have to bother about someone else and can always go “flat out”.

The driver didn’t want to go twice because it was about 20km from the field to the farm so he took two trailers at ones. It’s a hilly road and my guess is that the load including the trailers and tractor was 50 tonnes! He told me he had to use the 4wd on tarmac and was sweating like a pig when he got home:-D I don’t think we will try that any more.

Re: Grassharvest in Sweden
very nice and interesting pics!!
but one question: isn't ist very time-consuming to couple the trailer so often?? sure you need less personal but more time....time=money, this way we think in germany.
so every trailer has its tractor and driver....
thanks for your reply....greets

Glad you all like the pictures:-)

There are many ways to look at it, we mostly use one tractor and three trailers, that give us an “extra” trailer to load if the tractor can’t keep up, and when we change field or go to a smaller field the tractor can catch up. It helps if the tractor driver is a complete maniac and drive like the devil was after him.;-) We also have a camera on the hitch of the harvester and the hydraulic hoses and traffic- and working lights are gathered in one “multi connector” to make it as easy as possible.
Our average fields are about 2 hectares; I guess it’s different for most Germans.
Hope it make a little more sense fore you now.

Nice, I wouldn´t have thought you had a pick-up hitch on your forager.
You can drop the trailer if you find a wet spot:-D

Another picture to show the size of the trailers.
They hold 52 cubic meters, are made in Sweden and called Metsjövagnen. The tractor is an MF 3060 witch we normally use with the sprayer...
