Grimme launches GTM Windrower

A new Grimme GTM Windrower that includes innovative features from the GT harvester range has been launched by the company for this season.

New intake features include a pulled front share lifting system with or without centre share and floating chassis combined with Ridge Pressure Control. Gentle sieving is achieved with rotary agitation on the main web – rocker agitator optional – before feeding onto a conventional haulm roller against web combination.

A short second web moves the crop onto the second haulm roller system working against a spiral segment roller, which in turn feeds the crop over a Multi-Sep separator as a standard format.

A short transfer web gently delivers the crop onto the hydraulically driven cross conveyor, which has many new features, such as being centrally driven to remove the need for heavy end sections. The cross conveyor now moves left to right to discharge into the space between the next two rows.

The left and right sections hydraulically drop down to eliminate the drop. A rubber sheet at each end directs the crop into the valley between the rows. Speed control of the cross conveyor is controlled from the cab by the operator using an SKE Control Box.

The GTM Windrower has hydraulic lanes adjuster, hydraulic steering with self-centring, hydraulic levelling on the left and right sides and hydraulic control of the agitation as standard features operated through the standard control box.

The machine can be enhanced through option changes, which include Terra Control, VC50 and Joy Stick Control Box System, RS Separator and first haulm roller running against a spiral segment roller.
