Sugar Beet Harvesters

New for the 2020 growing season!

2720 Harvester

The Amity 2720 Harvester offers 31% more capacity and the ability to get through tough harvest conditions. With a larger volume scrub, higher profile chain, Dynamic Chain Management, new ISOBUS controller, new door design with lighted access, and the option for tracks or larger tires, the 2720 puts you in control even when conditions are less than ideal.

Higher Volume Scrub

A new, higher volume scrub on the 2720 has a volume of 59.8 ft³, compared to 45.5 ft³ on the 2700 scrub – a 31% increase in volume! This large increase will allow you to harvest higher tonnage crops faster. Field tests have shown capacity capabilities well beyond 45 tons at 5 mph.

Dynamic Chain Management

Dynamic Chain Management (DCM) maintains proper scrub chain tension during harvest. This advancement in harvester design adapts the scrub chain to sugar beet volume for easier sugar beet flow through the harvester. DCM can allow for higher scrub capacity and field speed. It also reduces scrub chain flexing and extends scrub chain life.

ADC on ISOBUS

Active Depth Control has now become ISOBUS compatible! The software is installed on the unit and will allow ADC to be controlled from any ISOBUS terminal, allowing for fewer screens in the tractor. The user interface has also been dramatically improved to allow for easier, more intuitive operation of the ADC system.

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.

New Door Design with Lighted Access

The new 2720 harvester features a new door design to access the working components of the harvester. Hinged at the top of the door, it keeps walking areas obstacle free.

Additionally, lights inside the access door provide illumination when working in dark conditions.

Optional Tracks or 900/60R32 Tires

When conditions are challenging, every advantage is important. The Amity 2720 Harvester is available with standard 710/70R38 tires, 900/60R32 tires or 30×67″ tracks. Our research shows that there is a significant reduction in ground pressure when using the 900 tires or the track system. The greater flotation also helps recover acres when the ground is muddy.

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.

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.

An optional PTO hanger is available for Amity Technology harvesters.

2700 Features

Tires available on the 2700 harvester:

  • 710/70R38 non-steering
  • 600/60R30.5 steering

Tires for the 2700 harvester are ADC compatible.

2700 harvesters from Amity Technology are available in three different configurations.

2300/2400/2500 Features

Amity harvesters are available with three different rear-carrying struts, including:

  • 11.2 x 24
  • 23.5/55 x 26
  • 11.2 x 24 steering

Shields with gas shocks provide easy access to working components.
