LAVERDA, three new combine harvester ranges in less than two years
Thanks to the success enjoyed after the M306 combine harvester model was launched in November 2002, Laverda's M Series of combine harvesters now numbers as many as 6 models.
Two combine harvesters have six straw walkers, i.e. models M 306 and M 305; two have five straw walkers, models M 304 and M 303, while lastly, there are two with the LS (Levelling System), i.e. models M 306 LS and M 304 LS.
The Levelling System, which operates by means of rotating final drives, provides the combine harvester with stability and a regular threshing action. This system in our combine harvester, ensures 20% levelling crosswise and 8% longitudinally.
The luxury Commodore Cab has been designed and built to offer the utmost in comfort, also because it makes driving extremely simple and provides optimum ergonomics, making the combine harvester reliable and fit for all-purpose use.
The new Commodore Cab is also equipped with a new automatic air conditioner that allows the operator to work in the fields in tip-top comfort.
Certain innovative devices guarantee maximum performance levels and allow the crops to be treated in an optimum way: the GSA (Ground Self Alignment), which automatically regulates the cutter bar in a crosswise direction in relation to the ground, the PFR (Prepare and Feeding Roller), a system that feeds the crop constantly and evenly to the threshing components, the tried-and-tested MCS (Multi Crop Separator), which separates the last grains escaped from the action of the drum. The MCS, an exclusive Laverda device, gives also the possibility to disengage the concave of the second drum in order to be used to aerate the fragile straw into the long straw walkers.
The grain tanks of the combine harvester are large in capacity: 9,000 or 8,200 litres, depending on the models. Versions M304 and M306 have now been equipped with a new, electrically operated tank.
The CATERPILLAR engines installed in combine harvester models M 306, M 305, M 304 and the IVECO ones in M 303, provide the M series combine harvesters with all the power they need for high level performances at minimum servicing costs, making an investment in one of Laverda's combine harvester even more profitable.
In November 2003, Laverda re-vamped its range of AL combine harvesters for mountain areas by including another two models. The combine harvester 255 AL 4WD with 5 straw walkers and the MCS system, is able to work on slopes with gradients of as much as 40% across, 30% up and 10% down in the longitudinal direction. Harvesting takes place in full safety thanks to the permanent 4-wheel drive, which is part of the standard set-up with these machines. The combine harvester 184 AL is the front-line model, the only one available in the market with 4 straw walkers. It guarantees the same performances when it comes to levelling, and is designed for farmers who need a tough and productive combine harvester with an excellent price-profitability ratio. The AL series also features new, wide side casings that make access to the pulsating heart of the machine easier, for extremely simple servicing operations.
For the 2004 – 2005 campaign, Laverda launched a new series of combine harvesters: the REV series. Designed for customers who keep a very careful eye on the economic aspect of their investments, ones who choose a reliable, efficient, high-performance and all-purpose combine harvester, the REV series enjoys a medium placing on the market.
There are three models, two with 5 straw walkers - models 225 REV and 255 REV – and one with 6 straw walkers, combine harvester model 256 REV.
