Dutch farmers and contractors are well known for coming up with innovative creations to suit their needs. This special one off Claas Jaguar is one of such builds. Aside from the frame, engine and cab not much is left original. The parsley crop is gobbled up using a 3m header. A very long extendable conveyor belt deposits the freshly cut herbs in side running containers.
A Fendt Favorit 714 Vario and Fendt 818 Vario are using a Breston and self build three axle hook lift trailers to carry the containers. A roller on top of the carrier compresses the load as it is a very voluminous crop but not a very heavy one. It is then taken to the factory, VNK Herbs, which is only a five minute drive in Biddinghuizen, the Netherlands. The machinery belongs to contractor Gebr. Koster.
