Loading the smart way.

Stability.

A rugged design is particularly important for operations in chopping or woodchip production mode. Made from 3-mm-thick hot-dip-galvanised steel, the scraper floor is extremely sturdy. The material is pushed towards the rear by metal guide strips and heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant scraper floor chains. Mechanical chain tensioning ensures that the required clamping force is available at all times. If required, the bolted scraper floor rails can be simply replaced.

Hydraulically folding filling flap

Incredibly spacious.

The CARGOS is equipped with either a rigid front plate or a filling flap that can be folded forwards hydraulically by 90°. The flap has an additional comb to prevent any forage losses during operation as a loader wagon. And during chopping or harvesting operations, it can be pivoted forward to provide plenty of free space. The filling flap can also be equipped with an integrated, adaptive automatic loading function: an angle sensor identifies the deflection of the filling flap and activates the scraper floor accordingly. An additional load-sensing bolt on the rotor drive, recording the torque, is optionally available. The combination of these two sensors guarantees optimum filling of the wagon and the full use of the loading volume.

Making full use of the ample space.

In wagons with metering rollers, a sensor on the lower roller triggers the full signal and limit switch disengaging the scraper floor. On wagons without metering rollers, this function is performed by a sensor on the tailgate locking mechanism. An optionally available ultrasonic sensor can measure the distance between the crop and the tailgate. When the full signal is sent via the COMMUNICATOR II, the scraper floor is switched off automatically.
