Fliegl Büffel forage harvester: Buffalo appetite

One of the flaws of a forage wagon is when having to travel long distances between field and clamp. Which is where Fliegl feels the Büffel (Buffalo in English) could be the solution. It is neither a trailed harvester nor a wagon, but a combination of the two.

The Fliegl Büffel is a sort of hybrid between a trailed chopper and a forage wagon. We have finally caught up with the prototype machine from the Bavarian-based manufacturer ... to see if such out-of-thebox thinking has a chance of making it in the real world
