Terra VariantEfficiency Through Power.

No matter whether field logistics or spreading of agricultural fertilizer: with its sufficient power reserves, the Terra Variant, being the most powerful carrier vehicle world-wide, is ideally suited to cope with any situation.

 

Large-volume tires, offset track drive, enormous traction and an exceptional transport volume not only improve process output but also enhance gentle soil treatment alike.
Maximum impact along with optimum operating comfort make the Terra Variant the preferred vehicle for professional use.

 

The vehiclefor several applications.

Zunhammer Gülletechnik equipment

Welcome to the professional league: more than just a machine - the Terra Variant concept

 

The Terra Variant with the proven ZUNHAMMER Gülletechnik equipment for semi-liquid manure: The most powerful answer to the challenges of today's and tomorrow's agriculture. No matter whether mineral fertilizer prices are rising, spreading and environmental protection measures are subject to ever stricter regulations or the processing periods in spreading organic farming manure are thus shortened - the Terra Variant saves driving cycles and operations, thus reducing the costs involved in crop production. In conjunction with attachments which can be combined individually, the Terra Variant integrates valuable organic farming manure into crops or on stubbles in an efficient, environmentally compatible way which simultaneously is gentle on the soil.

Saving the soil thanks to a large footprint:

 

The tire size, payload and traction are transferred on a large surface area in diagonal steer mode while maintaining optimized slip

Efficient thanks to the hopper volume:

 

The self-propelled machine with a power of 598 HP, a capacity of 21 m³ and VOGELSANG pump system ensures reliably high daily delivery rates up to 160 m³/h within a separate procedure while optimizing integration into the soil

Efficient thanks to logistics:

 

Whether as shuttle for road transport with the Terra Variant located in the field - every machine is utilized where it has the most impact, thus reducing costs for fuel and wear for all vehicles.

Speed thanks to optimum semi-liquid manure flow:

 

Short distances and optimum pipe diameters are characteristic for the Terra Variant. A specially adapted guide system for the intake line (NW 250 mm) minimizes pressure loss within the system. Extremely short intake times are achieved in conjunction with the powerful rotary pump. All the piping on the pressure side has been designed for maximum dosing accuracy in NW 200 mm. Two hydraulic gate-valves and the integrated three-way cock switch between the functions "Filling tanker", "Transferring" and "Spreading".

Advantages: 

 

  • Intake pipe pivotable laterally through 170°, 5.70 m long – for a maximum transfer overreach
  • All the important features are accessible via joystick - for ergonomic operation
  • Filling shut-off automatically - to ensure clean working
  • Intake of fluid at idle speed - to save fuel
  • Intake pipe with automatic folding feature - to facilitate the operator's work optimally
  • Precise, fully automatic control of spreading rate - for precise spreading result
  • Task Controller incl. job management – for automatic recording

Manure spreading

Bergmann universal spreader

BERGMANN universal spreader

 

Whether you are spreading compost, solid manure, separated digestates or carbonation mud, high-quality solid fertilizers need to be injected precisely within short periods of time. The basis for this is a high-impact injection technology. With the BERGMANN spreader superstructure, the Terra Variant combines impact and soil protection to inject a wide range of spreading media.

 

Benefits:

  • Large loading volume
  • High working speeds
  • Conical full-steel container
  • Precise spreading
  • Work widths up to 30 meters

Field Logistic

HOLMER GB 25 grain holding tank & HOLMER MB 35 multi tank

 

Harvesting machines must work more and more efficiently in shortening windows of time. Holding times due to emptying the grain tank or the beet tank need to be reduced. For the sake of modern field logistics, HOLMER has therefore developed special holding tanks for the Terra Variant. Harvest volumes are transferred using these holding tanks, directly from the combine harvester, crop chopper or sugar-beet harvester, and transported to the edge of the field in a way that protects the soil.

 

Under optimal harvesting conditions, harvesting takes place non-stop – the Terra Variant handles the logistics.

 

Benefits:
 

  • Improves lifting and threshing performance
  • Increases the annual capacity of the harvesting machines
  • Soil-protecting transport of harvested volume
  • Minimizes deep tracks and multi pass effect
  • Reduces soil processing costs
  • High discharge performance
  • HOLMER swap system

HOLMER VTU 19

HOLMER VTU 19

 

Maintenance and cleaning valves for all of the important assembly groups

 

Variable applications – specialized uses. With the VTU 19 transport superstructure, HOLMER is responding to growing demands in the area of mineral fertilizer incorporation. In the two 9.5 m³ halves of the tank, the VTU carries seeds and/or fertilizer for sowing, strip tillage or grubber fertilization. The high tractive output of the Terra Variant allows large work areas to be covered. The high transport capacity secures efficient machine usage through short holding times and long utilization times.

 

Benefits:

  • Precise mineral fertilizer incorporation
  • Efficient fertilizer use
  • Customized fertilizer mixtures possible
  • Reduces the number of trips

Utilizing fuel in a way that makes sense: Automotive driving provides two driving strategies which are optimally adapted to the requirements in question, facilitating the operator's workload at the same time.

 

  •  Eco Mode:  The Terra Variant automatically selects the optimum gear in accordance with the power required.
  •  Fixed speed: The driver is enabled to define individual gears and to save the engine speeds for every gear. 

 

Driving comfort as core competence

 

Efficient power transmission and maximum traction: The proven powershift gearbox FUNK DF 500 with 18 forward and 6 reversing speeds provides you with the perfect gear change.

 

Safety coupled with constantly high driving comfort: this is what the special HOLMER front axle suspension with hillside compensators and automatic levelling ensures. In conjunction with a wheelbase of 4.80 m and the wide Terra tires, the Terra Variant masters slopes without any problems while maximizing driving stability.

 

  • Fully automatic, progressively variable levelling
  • Adjustable spring setting
  • Floating axle for adaptation to the terrain
  • Full suspension comfort also on slopes

Chassis concept – Soil preservation in all situations.

Diagonal steer prevents the soil from being rolled over several times. The Terra Variant helps avoid damaging soil compaction. The wide Terra tires save the soil as does driving at diagonal steer by rolling over each part of the soil only once.

 

Various steering modes:

 

  • All-wheel steering for maximum manoeuvrability
  • Diagonal steer, left-hand/right-hand, to ensure a wide wheel rolling surface, and stable driving characteristics on lateral slopes;
  • Four-wheel steer to utilize the multi-pass effect in the case of driving track in track
  • Manual steering to steer the rear axle independently via joystick
  • Roadwork mode – ensuring a high level of driving safety in public road traffic thanks to the hydraulic connection between the front and rear axles

Three-pointmount keeps its promises.

Three-point - HOLMER Terra Variant

Designed specifically for professional spreading of semi-liquid manure: The fully hydraulically pivoting rear power lift of the Terra Variant meets the most testing standards.

The three-point mount which is suspended on the main frame via a pivot cylinder arranged transversely at the bottom features fully automatic pivoting. All the connection points between the vehicle and the attachment are always in a straight line of traction thanks to the fully pivoting frame, even in diagonal steer mode.
