Samon Onion Loader
More and more onion growers see the need for a product-friendly onion loader. Samon has developed a loader especially for loading onions. Here you will find information about our 2 different types of onion loaders: the SU1L and the SU2LS.
The loader is equipped with one sieving mat, a hedgehog belt and a discharge. The jaws are equipped with a foam feed roller so that no onions are left behind at the end of the row. A single sieving belt with adjustable beaters ensures that the soil is cleaned off, while the mat is equipped with recessed bars to prevent onions from rolling backwards. An adjustable hedgehog belt removes weeds and foliage. The loader has a steerable drawbar for making quick corrections. The sieving mat and discharge belt are driven by a hydraulic pump on the PTO shaft, the other functions are driven by the tractor. The 85 cm wide discharge can load to a height of 3.2 metres.
The SU2LS is a further development of the SU1L. The main difference is that the SU2LS has two sieving mats and can handle more capacity. The digging mat is relatively narrow to ensure that no more soil is touched than necessary. The haulm remnants that are often still found lying beside the windrow are also avoided. The second mat is wider than the digging mat to allow for sufficient cleaning. The second mat is fitted with recessed bars to prevent onions from rolling. The angle and speed of the hedgehog belt can be controlled from the tractor. The machine is equipped with star wheels for even filling of the discharge belt. The loader is equipped with a 3-part, lightweight, product-friendly discharge. The effective width of the outlet within the fingers is 105 cm. With this discharge, 100 tonnes/hour can be loaded. Regulating the speed of the discharge belt from the tractor. The loading height of the discharge is ample for large tippers. The entire loader is driven hydraulically by its own hydraulic system. The tractor supplies the oil for functions such as steering and operating the discharge.
