Crop handling


Fast storage, gentle handling

The AVR receiving hoppers ensure your crop to be handled in a fast and effective, as well as a potato-friendly manner. The machine is available in several versions and with different roller variations, so that you can virtually custom-tailor your machine. The different possibilities for configuration and the numerous options, make it the ideal machine for middle to big potato (processing) companies.

Gentle and flexible bunker

Different models can be chosen for the reception hoppers. An articulation at the front or back of the bunker can be opted for. Furthermore, the bunker is equipped with a unique bunker floor (100% product-friendly) with an increased transportation effect.

Potato friendly bunker floor

The hopper floor is standard equipped with a horizontal nod after the inclining part. This helps to break the solid flow of the product and ensures a better distribution and a constant flow of the product to the cleaning rollers. Therefore having an even higher sieving/cleaning capacity of the roller unit.

The roller unit can be customized with extra cleaning options for each type of cleaning rollers, which help to keep the rollers clean and optimize cleaning capacity under tough conditions.
