Beet harvest
Today my neighbour harvested his sugar beets. The local contractor was there with a MF 8250 and a Edenhall 744 - a 4 row beet lifter with 10 ton elevator tank.

Re: Beet harvest
Edenhall is a Swedish brand of beet lifters, this is the same type of machine that Christian drove and showed pics from.

Re: Beet harvest
The beet lifter has 3 wheels - 2 on the left side that can be pushed in to minimize transport width, and one on the right with hydraulic help drive, which is very handy in wet spots.

Unloading into trailer. It is quite wet in the ground so they decided to not unload on the go, if it is drier they use to do so.

Re: Beet harvest
Lennart, sorry if my question looks stupid, are those sugar beets for producing sugar or for animal food?
regards,
Victor

Re: Beet harvest
very nice machine, here you only see Tim beet lifters with 2 or 3 rows, and combinations with six rows like Gilles or Dewulf.

our first sugar beets have an average sugar percentage of 17,3%, but i don't know yet how much ton/ha

Re: Beet harvest
@TC; We don't know any figures yet, but the feeling is that tonnage is quite high, sugar-% is harder to guess, but south in Skåne they have hig sugar yields, so I suppose it is the same here, but we had more rain.

@Victor: This beets will be sugar in the end. And it's not you who are stupid, it's our politicians, but as we can't grow sugar cane beets are the best way, but more expensive, and if our politicians want's us to be self-producing sugar this is the way.

@Tom - yes, the Edenhall is qite nice machines. I think they have some cooperation with Veravet, but if that is more than importing Veravet to Swden I don't know.

Last week the sugar beets were delivered to the processing plant by lorry. The transport company uses this Thyregod beet lifter/cleaner to load the trucks. Thyregod is a Danish manufacturer.

One of the trucks used, a Scania. In Sweden trucks are allowed to be maximum 25 meters and total weight 60 tonnes (lower on some roads). This one loads 36 tonnes of sugar beets.

Re: Beet harvest
Thanks Christian!

Har Ni bytat betupptagare? Den här ovan kommer från en maskinstation i Skåne och liknar den du visat bilder på tidigare.

(I'we asked Christian if they have changed beet lifter, becuse the one abowe was bought in his area)

Re: Beet harvest
Hello Lennart!
Now, that one isn`t ours, we still have a lot to drive with ours. But i think the machine is from Hammenhög, a few kilometres from where i live, they have bought a Holmer instead. They have joined a beet-group with their Scania 144, and they are going to try directly dilivery to the sugar factory..

Re: Beet harvest
OK, thanks for the answer, but I must be right when I say that it is identical beet lifters?

How much beets do you have left? When do you plan to be finished?
