HOLMER SmartTurnThe clever way to turn.

The first headland management system for self-propelled harvesters. For the first time, SmartTurn combines the mechanical row steering system and the headland management system TerraControl on the beet lifter with GNSS-controlled headland turning, as is known from tractors. This makes automatic turning at the front end possible for the first time – including lifting and re-insertion of the lifting unit, as well as the necessary steering manoeuvres.


The joint development of REICHHARDT and HOLMER expands the Terra Dos T4 with a modern, automatic steering and smart-farming function to optimise beet harvesting and soil protection. The system has been awarded a DLG silver medal.



1. An acoustic signal indicates the optimum time for the turning process. The driver activates SmartTurn. The Terra Dos T4 automatically stops lifting when the stock limit is reached and it raises the lifting unit at the ideal point.


2. At the same time, GNSS steering takes over the turning process, using an ideal turning path. The system automatically checks the correct, next track.


3. There, SmartTurn automatically reinstates the lifting unit at the ideal point. The proven row sensor steering system then takes over control of the machine in the track. REICHHARDT SMART CONTROL records all data; these are available for documentation and evaluation.


The clever way to turn:

  • Automatic control of the vehicle via GNSS or row sensor – so that the driver can concentrate entirely on monitoring the lifting quality.
  • Always the best and shortest tracks on the headland without unnecessary manoeuvring – for optimum soil protection
  • Automatic lifting and fitting of the lifting unit at the optimum time – for reduced wear and fuel consumption
  • Quicker turning on the headland – for the shortest non-producing times
  • Automatic insertion in the right row – to relieve the driver and to avoid loss of harvest







HOLMER DynaFill Always clear.

HOLMER DynaFill ensures that the removal vehicles are always loaded optimally and in accordance with the legal requirements – a great relief for drivers and those responsible. The machine software provides information on the fill level via a laser at the transfer loading arm, which recognises the loading area of ​​the truck. The Terra Felis swivels the transfer loading arm to the correct position fully automatically and stops the loading operating as soon as the removal vehicle is evenly loaded. An intelligent and reliable solution for beet-loading.


HOLMER DynaProtect Only flying is more soil protecting

Unique: With the HOLMER DynaProtect driver assistance system, soil and crop are optimally protected during slurry application. After the driver has preselected „grassland/grain" or „row crop/stubble", the system adjusts itself automatically.


On the level, the system guarantees even rolling of the wheels without leading – thus preventing damage to the growing crop or the turf and reducing slippage.


On a side slope on grassland, the lead of the front axle increases slightly – the vehicle is stabilised safely and the ground is protected to the maximum at the same time.


On side slopes in row crops, the lead is further increased in order to guarantee directional stability and thus protect the crop.


If reverse gear is engaged, the leading gear automatically changes to the rear axle. This makes driving safe and easy and guarantees the smallest turning radiuses. All settings are dynamic and depend on the information that the slope sensor reports live.


In road driving mode, a consistent zero lead is automatically set in order to protect the tyres and minimise fuel consumption.



HOLMER EcoPowerIntelligent. Economically. Efficient.

EcoPower developed by HOLMER is unique in the area of selfdriving work machines. Depending on the current driving mode (harvesting or transfer) and the degree of utilization of the travel drive, on all assembly drive systems and on the central multipump drive, the HOLMER EcoPower selects the optimum range within the diesel engine and drive system map. Thus, it always ensures optimum performance while keeping fuel consumption

to a minimum.


  • Optimum operating point on the diesel engine, considerable increase in efficiency of all assembly drive systems and the travel drive, independently of the working process
  • Increased efficiency thanks to an increased number of pumps and consequently optimum coordination between pump and assembly
  • Overall optimization of energy management
  • Individual drive units which are not used temporarily are uncoupled to reduce fuel consumption

HOLMER EasyLiftsimply harvest more.

Opitmal harvesting results for 6 to 12 rows: The automatic depth control system HOLMER EasyLift makes the HOLMER lifter units unique, the driver is harvesting, what is grown, with a reduced fuel consumption. High quality materials guarantee a minimal wear and the HOLMER EasyConnect offers a maximum safty and a perfect driver comfort with 9 or 12- row lifter units.


  • Ergonomically designed function armrest with Jog Dial control
  • HOLMER EasyTouch for comfortable machine operation
  • Memory feature for 6 individually adaptable basic machine settings: dry – normal – wet – uphill – straight ahead – downhill

TerraDAT is a software program developed by HOLMER for convenient management of job data, customer and machine data on a PC. In particular, it allows users to:

  • Create databases for customer data, and transfer them to the machine using a USB stick
  • Analyse all of the machine, driver and harvest data, operating overviews and individual assignment
  • Monitor and send reminders about maintenance
  • Track current lifting data online, together with the GSM module (optional)


The fast-coupling frame developed and patented by HOLMER, HOLMER EasyConnect, expands the previous mechanical systems with an automatically coupled hydraulic and electrical supply interface.

Impressive benefits:

  • Greater machine efficiency thanks to reduced set-up times
  • Reduced risk of accidents due to convenient coupling and uncoupling from the driver’s seat (mechanical, hydraulic and electrical)
  • Additional comfort due to elimination of heavy, rigid elements requiring manual coupling
  • No risk of confusion when connecting hydraulic and electrical lines
  • Driver assistance and system protection


During the run-up to Agritechnica, HOLMER introduced its new 12-row HR 12 lifter unit, and subjected it straight away to the most ambitious practical challenge:
What area can be cleared in 24 hours by just one single sugar-beet harvester?
So, at 12:01 p.m. on 28 September, a HOLMER Terra Dos T4-30 with a 12-row lifter started an attempt at a world record. The team led by Edi Richer wasn’t going to get much sleep during the next 24 hours. On the Baltic Agrar fields in Liepen (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania), utmost undisturbed concentration was called for.
This devotion to duty reaped rewards: the world record in beet lifting! The HOLMER Terra Dos T4-30 with HR 12 harvested 85.6 hectares of beets in 24 hours – an incredible performance by the lifter unit and the whole team behind this world record attempt!
