Sugar Beet Harvesters

Amity Scrub Harvesters

The flagship of Amity Technology is the scrub tower harvester, available in model 2300, 2400, 2500 and 2700. The lifting strut is the cornerstone of all Amity harvesters. Engineered to lift whole beets, Amity lifting struts are adjustable to minimize unwanted mud or utilize lighter soils to ensure the root enters the harvester. With efficiency in mind, you can adjust the rest of the harvester to clean as required. Scrub tower models are an excellent choice for heavier soils that stick.

Amity wheel harvesters

Amity wheel harvesters are most effective in areas with lighter soils. With the simple design that allows incredible visibility inside the machine, Amity wheel harvesters lift sugar beets with fewer wear parts. Choose 4, 6, 8 or 12-row models to maximize production in your operation.

Active Depth Control

Active Depth Control (ADC) on Amity harvesters is a major advancement in efficiency and profitability for your operation. As harvester widths increase, the need for leveling the harvester has become a key component in reducing tare and maximizing root yield.

During normal operation, harvester weight dynamics are constantly changing. As the tank and boom fill and empty and as field conditions go from wet to dry, ADC continuously monitors the digging depth and make adjustments with the hitch and rear cylinders across the machine.

From the monitor in the tractor, the operator sets digging parameters on the circuit board. the sensors, or wands, advise the circuit board of the digging depth. The circuit board then instructs the valve block to make adjustments to the hitch and axle cylinders.

Harvester Features

Amity harvesters utilize an apron chain between the lifter wheels and the grabrolls, transferring the crop through the harvester and removing a majority of the dirt.

The Amity row finder is a simple, effective tool to keep your harvester on the row. The row finder also has a backup feature that allows you to backup without lifting the machine or damaging the row finder.

Grabrolls on Amity Technology harvesters are designed to remove any remaining dirt or trash from the sugar beets before they are elevated into the tank. Grabrolls can easily be adjusted to be more or less aggressive, depending on field conditions.

Amity paddles effectively move the sugar beets from the lifter wheels into the harvester.

Easy pinch point adjustments on Amity harvesters help you pull more taproot in dry conditions and less mud in wet conditions.

2700 Features

Tires available on the 2700 harvester:
