J Riley Beet Harvester’s biennial working demonstration will return at the end of January 2022. The event will showcase Vervaet’s new rollerbed primary cleaning system which can be specified in place of the existing highly-regarded turbine-only layout on the six-wheel Beet Eater 625 Evo.
Announced last spring, the first production models went to work for the 2021/22 sugar beet campaign with two machines sold in the UK but this will be the first public demonstration of the units.
The rollerbed option is intended as another solution for growers with suitable soil types. Additionally, the Vervaet system discharges onto a central cleaning turbine rather than a trace, eliminating a potential problem area.
Also in action will be the four-wheel Q-616, which is the most popular Vervaet model.
Refreshments will be provided including the famous hog roast by North-Norfolk butchers H.V. Graves which is always highly appreciated by visitors. The location will be Little Witchingham in central Norfolk with kind permission of H Jones (Farms) Ltd. The post code is NR9 5NY, and signs will be in place on the day (Thursday 27th of January 2022).
