Grimme Evo 290 potato harvester: Evo evolution

The door opened during transport, the machine bounced in the field and folding the bunker was a real pain. Yet these shortcomings were in stark contrast to the good running gear, enormous hopper capacity and the impressive output of the Evo 290. Grimme has been busy and made numerous improvements to the early machine that featured in our practical test last year.
