Harvesting machine for white asparagus
The AspergeSpin A1 is an electrically driven harvesting machine for white asparagus. The machine lifts black/white cover foil and thermal foil so that asparagus can be harvested. The machine then places the black/white cover foil back on the asparagus bed and the thermal foil over the M-arches. The harvested asparagus is collected and taken on the machine.
With the AspergeSpin A1, all heavy operations during the asparagus harvest are automated. The harvester can now fully concentrate on harvesting asparagus and is not slowed down by peripheral activities such as putting the cover film aside and replacing it again. This results in a labor saving of no less than 50%.
With the AspergeSpin A1, the cutting performance of harvesters is increased. More volume of asparagus are harvested per hour. The labor costs per hour are simply spread over more volume of asparagus, which reduces the cost price of asparagus.
With the AspergeSpin A1 it is easy to divide the asparagus field into blocks. Each harvester is then responsible for his own block of rows. The harvest frequency can be determined by the number of rows a harvester has to harvest each day. In this way the organization remains clear and the staffing of the entire asparagus field can be better controlled and monitored.
Due to the elimination of heavy work, harvesting with the AspergeSpin A1 is lighter. This allows a harvester to cut more asparagus per hour. Because the work is lighter, more productive hours can be achieved in a working day. This results in a productivity increase of no less than 100%.
The AspergeSpin A1 drives under the cover film and thus creates a workplace for the harvester to harvest asparagus.
A large diabolo roller at the front of the machine lifts and centers the cover sheet into a narrow package. A gutter holds this package in its narrow shape along the machine's work site. The back of the AspergeSpin A1 forms the cover film in such a way that the cover film is placed over the asparagus bed again.
Thanks to a patented technique, the AspergeSpin A1 can also drive under the thermal foil of a mini tunnel. In combination with M-Arches to support the mini tunnel, the AspergeSpin A1 lifts both foils. With a special construction at the back of the machine, the films are neatly laid over the bed and the M-Arches.
Thanks to this patented technique, it is possible to actively control the temperature of the asparagus cultivation with the AspergeSpin A1.
The AspergeSpin A1 has a smart and clear operation. The driving speed of the machine is continuously adjustable and can be adapted to every harvester. The machine is then easy to switch on and off with a long switch cord.
A sensor ensures that the AspergeSpin A1 automatically stops and starts moving again so that the harvester is always in the working area of the machine.
With the newly developed DRive Selector switch, the AspergeSpin A1 is easy to maneuver on the headland. By simply choosing a driving direction, the machine moves to the left or right, forwards and backwards.
The AspergeSpin A1 has an electric drive on both front wheels. As a result, the machine always has sufficient traction on the asparagus field. The electric motor is sheltered high above the ground. The drive wheels are driven by chain drives.
Portable battery pack
The AspergeSpin A1 is equipped with a portable battery pack. At the beginning of the working day, the harvester takes the battery pack with him to his machine on the asparagus field. The capacity of the battery pack is sufficient to be able to harvest a whole working day. At the end of the working day, the harvester returns the battery pack to the battery charger. Here the battery pack is fully charged again within one night so that it can be used again the next day.
