Sugar Beet Defoliators

Properly defoliated beets store better and longer adding profit.

50 Series Defoliators

Amity 50 Series defoliators work up to 30 percent faster than their predecessor to match harvester speed. Engineered to stay ahead of the harvester, you won’t have to defoliate acres ahead – taking advantage of the natural insulation provided by the crop canopy – delivering a high-quality product at a reduced cost.

The heart of the 50 Series defoliators is the Amity shrouded, combination steel front drum. It removes and finely sizes the foliage and distributes it evenly between the rows. Combined with a 10-pin second drum and a height-adjustable third drum, 50 Series defoliators give you the ability to match your harvesting speed and increase quality.

00 Series Defoliator

Amity Technology sugar beet defoliators lead the way with their simple, efficient design and innovations that are proven to clean the green from the sugar beet and add it to your bottom line.

Defoliator Features

Three-drum Amity defoliators are available with a variety of flail configurations to match your operation.

Hydraulic front and rear doors are standard on 50 Series. Optional hydraulic doors are available on 00 Series.

Another Amity Technology exclusive is the all gearbox drive on all defoliator models. Engineered to the power required, these boxes efficiently transfer low-maintenance power. No belts here!

The optional row finder mounts either on the frame or the scalper bar and will please the harvester operator by keeping the removed foliage between the rows.

Optional stabilizer wheels for narrow stance rear strut assembly.

Defoliator Tires

Amity defoliators are available with a number of rear strut options, like steerable or non-steerable, cylinders for ease of height adjustment, and offset to defend against pivot tracks.
