00 Series Sugar Beet Defoliators

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.

Active Height Control

Active Height Control (AHC) on Amity defoliators is a major advancement in taming the ever-changing field dynamics you and your team run in to every day during harvest. Finding experienced labor during sugar beet harvest is challenging. With AHC, much of the need for an experienced operator is alleviated by sensors on the scalper bars.

During operation there are a number of changing dynamics for ground level and sugar beet height – uneven beets, sprayer tracks, and mud building up on the tires. Amity’s AHC system is constantly monitoring the beet height in comparison to the ground level and making adjustments on the height of the defoliator, up and down, as well as side to side. AHC gives you full defoliation with less damage to your sugar beet crop.

Defoliator Features

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

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.
