Vervaet has announced several updates for the Q616 self-propelled sugar beet harvester for the 2020/2021 season.

Introduced three years ago the Q616 will benefit from a new touchscreen for monitoring and operation, a new traction control system, improved levelling on hillsides and a new automatic tank filling system which makes use of ultrasonic sensors.

“As the replacement for the 617 the Q-Series had big shoes to fill,” says Jeremy Riley, managing director of UK importer J Riley Beet Harvesters. “But over the last three years it’s constantly proven itself as a market leader. Despite contractors in some areas having only just finished lifting after an extremely arduous campaign we’ve had a very good response from our customers, with eight new Q-Series machines ordered so far for the 2020/21 campaign. The six-wheel 625 also maintains its reputation for the highest outputs in the toughest conditions.”
