The cutting header ensures a consistent head first feed of material of all crop types through the innovation of the powered belt system, for greater threshing ability.
Powered Belt System: the one meter length between the knife and auger, allow for improved performance and visibility. Tall and short crops can be cut and easily transported directly underneath the auger by the revolving power belt at a constant speed, increasing the productivity of the machine.
Reel: the hydraulic reel can be regulated to 3 different positions, high enough to reach taller crops and low enough to allow the reel tines to reach below the knife making it reliable in crop pick-up even in laid conditions. The reel speed adjusts automatically, the Operator can set the speed ratio from inside the cab, so the reel will automatically compensate to the forward speed of the combine for perfect crop flow into the header.
Knife: the exclusive Schumacher system guarantees a higher cutting strength, precision, and a 1,220 rpm working speed even on green or damp crops. The strong and reliable gear box vibrates less therefore, less wear on the cutting header. The blades of the knife are double supported, constantly sharp and self cleaning, therefore more difficult crops like oil seed rape, peas and rye are tackled with ease.
Oil Seed Rape: exclusive design of the Power Belt allows efficient collection of rapeseed without having to employ an additional kit, but simply installing optional side knives, where the crop dividers attach. A special rape auger (optional) can be easily installed above the main auger and can boost productivity when harvesting long stemmed oil seed rape.
Crop Dividers: the standard Torpedo foldable crop dividers were engineered for all types of crops and conditions. The assembly is quick and simple, not requiring the use of any tools. The unique design make it possible to fold the dividers making it easier to transport on the road.
Continuous feed and uniform cutting even in difficult conditions.
Large -diameter auger: thanks to a large-diameter auger with larger flighting, it allows for increased and improved feeding capacity.
Open-profile frame: provides better visibility (facilitating crop flow control) and improves the handling of long-stemmed crops. The frame is designed to simplify hitching and unhitching the cutting header.
Header /machine coupling: the cutting headers are hitched by a centralized multiple coupling system for all electric and hydraulic controls. This makes hitching a quick, simple and precise operation.
Hydrostatically driven pickup reel: it is equipped with newly designed tines, anti-clogging blades (Schumacher system) and simplified drives. This combination of components improves balance and the efficiency of the pickup reel on laid crops and is practically zero maintenance.
The TerraControl IITM levels the cutting header across the ground and lengthwise, thanks to two systems that work at two ranges of height (50 to 200 mm for short-stemmed crops, or 100 to 500 mm for taller crops). The new system is controlled by an electronic proportional valve which gives a more accurate leveling performance in all conditions, including fi eld pressure control.
The long crop elevator, with large intake, is designed to improve the performance of the machine with a greater capacity, a smoother crop flow and the possibility of coupling with larger headers and offers the operator better visibility from the cab. Header lift capacity is improved with the powerful lift cylinders lifting capacity up to 2,600 kg
The M 310 MCS LC, M 300 MCS LC models rise above the group because of Laverda’s exclusive and patented, lateral action levelling system, based on 2 movements: machine body levelling, and table levelling.
The lateral levelling system uses two reinforced joints that, through electrohydraulics, provide a lateral adjustment of the machine on different gradients of the terrain. This enables a transverse levelling of up to 20% for 4WD versions or up to 15% for 2WD versions, and makes it possible to work well on European hillsides, assuring high performance in total comfort and with the maximum safety.
Excellent stability and minimal soil compaction are guaranteed by large tyres (800/65 R32). The lateral levelling system reduces outer dimensions to just 3.50 m (machines with 5 straw-walkers), ideal for road travel even on narrow roadways. External dimensions can be further reduced by up to 3.30 m, opting for a different size of front tyres (650/75 R32). The new final drives, a Laverda exclusivity, are equipped with 10 bolts, and are standard on the three models.
The PFR, based on a roller fitted with retracting fingers at the entrance of the elevator channel, is another solution to ensure the continuous and even flow of crop from the cutting header to the threshing apparatus. The advantages are plentiful: more regular threshing, constant levels of combine performance, lower power requirements, reduced fuel consumption and longer lasting drives. The benefits are obvious, both for your work and for your productivity.
It subjects the crop to a forced separation action, however it can be deactivated if the crop is delicate with friable straw. This exclusive patented system, allows the separation capacity to be regulated based on the type of crop and its condition.
The operator can switch from an aggressive threshing action to a more delicate one several times a day, by simply pressing a switch.
Versatility is key in the Agri-business of tomorrow. Farmers and contractors have to harvest many different crops, and with this they can adapt their machine to many different conditions in no time.
Laverda recognizes this important need and have developed our new Optional Sectional Concave, available on request. You can change from small to large grain size simply replacing the front half of the main concave with no need to remove the front elevator. It is designed to harvest any kind of crop in any condition, going through wheat, barley, rape, sunflower, maize, soya and many other different crops.
The Sectional Concave will reduce the conversion time of your combine from hours to minutes!
Laverda’s long straw walker system achieves further active separation thanks to the exclusive design of the walker pans and steep steps. The generously sized grain pan prepares the “grain chaff” and is the start of the cleaning process before the material reaches the sieves and fan.
The standard equipment includes 8,600 litre grain tank with an unloading rate of up to 85 litres per second. These large grain tanks and the fast discharge action allow the combines to achieve considerable daily production rates. The unloading tube is positioned at the top of the grain tank, where it can be clearly seen by the operator and make the process of fi lling any size of trailer an easy task.
Available with a 64-bladed rotor for machines with six straw walkers and with 52 blades for machines with five straw walkers, Laverda’s straw chopper efficiently chops the straw thanks to the regulating serrated counterblades on both sides and the characteristic adjustable dimpled base plate and it is available as optional. It is activated by a hydraulic mechanism and can be used for all crops. If the straw is to be baled, Laverda’s straw chopper can be deactivated by simply moving the deflector which disengages it.
To ensure effective distribution of the residues from the sieves, Laverda offers another important accessory: the chaff spreader, which can be quickly adjusted to suit crop conditions. Chaff is spread in an efficient manner thanks to the twin fan action.
Fundamental elements of good cab design include space, comfort and visibility. The new Proline cab offers all of these, ensuring complete operator comfort at all times. Visibility is excellent with a panoramic view for the operator including header, stubble, unloader and the rear with large electrically adjustable mirrors
The cab comes with a host of features you would expect in an operator environment of this quality: fully automatic air conditioning including heating; air suspension seat; electrically adjustable heated mirrors; instructor seat with cooler (optional) and storage box; excellent sound insulation means you work in quiet comfort; safe and easy to use cab steps.
The new control interface for the operator falls naturally to hand – the PowerGrip multifunction lever sits on top of the armrest which houses all the switches for the commonly used controls. As the propulsion lever does not need to slide it makes operation far less tiring than conventional set-ups.
The right-hand armrest is the central operating unit where the key engagement switches sit with the throttle control. Designed with a large soft pad to cushion the arm during a long day allows for maximum comfort. The armrest can be raised and moved forward to suit the driver using two levers on the right-hand side of the console.
The membrane keypad is located directly on the right side of the armrest and is used to operate the principle combine functions. The soft, raised keys lead directly to the individual menus on the TechTouch 2 Terminal.
The new TechTouch 2 Terminal is the control centre for all key performance operations, it has a touch screen, and you can use the unique safety navigator to display the screen you require.
The easy-to-read colour touch screen can be adjusted for each operator, which choices for what should be displayed. Clear uncluttered display makes the job of interpreting the information very easy – warnings are shown clearly as a priority. Automated crop settings – several variations of crop settings can be added within the menu on the TechTouch 2 terminal, which when selected will alter the combine automatically.
