Schuitemaker Rapide 6600 forage wagon: Wagon progression

Schuitemaker’s latest five-model, 38m³ to 60m³ Rapide 1000 series forage wagons were given a 'refresh' for this season. We caught up with the 42m³ Rapide 6600 for a tour of the Dutch-built machine's new features

From a distance, only a Schuitemaker aficionado will spot the subtle changes to the new generation of Rapide 1000 series forage wagon models. There's the discreet addition of a little yellow near the tailgate, and the wheel rims are now grey rather than white. These minor tweaks to the colour scheme are the only physical changes implemented since the merger of Schuitemaker and Veenhuis to create the SV Group.
