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 allows 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 gearbox vibrates less and, therefore, reduces 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 Touch 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 M 410 LC, M 400 LC, M 410 LCI and M 400 LCI 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.
Exceptionally agile and comfortable to use on all types of terrain, Laverda’s M 400 LCI combine provides high capacity and is ideal for harvesting on rolling-hill areas. This model offers perfect positioning and an extremely precise and reliable levelling system. Thanks to sophisticated engineering, the combine can work on lateral gradients of as much as 20%, up to 30% uphill.
The 4WD on Laverda’s M 400 LCI guarantees optimal control over the vehicle even on the most diffi cult land and in the most adverse conditions. The four-wheel drive and the front and rear levelling allows the machine to work in all directions and over vast areas, making following straw harvesting operations much easier to deal with.
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 lift cylinders lifting capacity up to 2.600 kg.
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.
Laverda’s long straw walker system achieves further active separation thanks to the exclusive design of the walker pans and steep steps. The powerful fan with a differential flow rate has two air inlets at the sides and one at the top. In addition to top quality grain, these features guarantee superior performance and low fuel consumption in all crop conditions.
The M 410 LC, M 400 LC and M 400 LCI have a 8.600 litre grain tank. All models have a unloading rate of 105 litres/sec. Features which allow the combines to achieve considerable daily production rates. The unloading tube, positioned at the top of the tank, where it can be clearly seen in action by the operator, makes fi lling any size of trailer an easy task.
The HCD High Capacity Design adjustable sieves, with their special profile and opposing action, are part of the standard equipment. They clean the grain to a high standard and make the whole process more efficient, thanks to their exclusive design. The sieves can be electrically regulated, with the advantage of permanent control over the grain recovery directly from the cab. The sieves can be electrically regulated, with the advantage of permanent control over the grain recovery directly from the cab.
The new 6 row straw chopper is specifically designed to give chopping and spreading performance suitable for farmers using reduced tillage operations. The knives, 72 for 5 straw walkers and 88 for 6 straw walkers, are serrated to give a clean fine chop and reduce the power required. The fully adjustable stationary knives and straw chopper hood ensure complete control over the quality and spread of the chopped straw. An adjustable dimple plate is standard to make sure straw is chopped consistently. Electrical deflectors for the straw chopper are available as an option. This allows the straw to be directed from the uncut crop if required. For those that require straw, the threshing system is gentle and leaves the straw in perfect condition for baling feed and bedding straw or producing products for power generation.
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.
The all new Skyline Cab has been developed by Laverda engineers to create a well designed ergonomic control center for operating ease and efficiency, while at the same time providing a spatial and extra comfortable working environment. The cab interior is functional and practical while its light grey interior has a feel and look of quality, perfect for high technology machinery.
