The Euro Tiger

The Tiger provides a very high level of performance in the case of long fields and for medium size fields, where there is to be only one stack at one end.

In addition, the Harvester offers an appropriate large capacity for an exceptionally plentiful beet harvest. The surface area covered by the machine is considerably wide.

Having a large surface area guarantees optimum weight distribution, consequently, cost and reduced subsequent cultivation. The Tiger provides the basis for minimum tillage after the beet harvest.


The `euro-cabin' offers easy working conditions and an ergonomically arranged workplace. It offers a good all-round view, especially over the topping and lifting units, because of the purpose-designed cabin.


Computer aided control ensures optimum efficiency. This also gives excellent maneuverability for driving on roads. The 60° pivot articulation (30° left and right) allows the smallest possible turning circle.

Axle Weight Distribution

The beet tank volume of 40m3 is effectively distributed over 3 axles through axle load control and can be unloaded efficiently in approximately 60 seconds.

Motive Power Engineering

A super modern drive technique is combined with a highly efficient, economical and reliable V8 diesel engine and a load sensing hydraulic system. A proven, powerful drive transmission ensures highest possible traction at any time.

Axle Weight Distribution

Flail, depth wheel, cleaning rollers, transfer conveyer and cleaning turbines are individually adjustable to maximise their cleaning capability. Optimum cleaning is ensured with automatic speed adjustment.

Flail / Leaf Spreader

The integral flail, or flail with auger leaf spreader ensures a nutrition orientated leaf distribution.

Beet Lifting

The newly developed PRh unit provides clean and effective harvesting; it is maintenance friendly and low in wear and tear.
