South-Africa meets first Dewulf potato harvester

 DeWulf RJA2060
August 6, 2013
Dewulf, specialist in harvesting technology of potatoes and carrots, introduced its first potato harvester in South-Africa earlier this year.

Carl Steyn, owner of the company Forest Lodge, was the first and proud owner of a Dewulf RJA2060, 2-row trailed potato harvester.

Thanks to this purchase, he will be harvesting over 250ha every year.

The first two months of the harvesting season in South-Africa are rainy. For the rest of the season, the country is known for its dry climate with clods as result. The RJA2060 is equipped with a flat hedgehog belt and finger system on top and an Easy-clean unit downstairs which takes care of the clods.
