With deep roots in Noetinger, Córdoba, Piersanti sets out to conquer the world with one clear foundation: innovation. In recent days, the machine manufacturer has dazzled with the introduction of new technology in draper heads, in this case for fodder. The official discovery of this innovation was during the last edition of Expoagro, but a promising future awaits them.
In fact, the RHD – 8200, Draper Rake Harvester was one of the standout product launches at the show, complementing the innovative technologies Piersanti already has in its catalogue. This equipment aims to move the rows of forage destined for silage or hay production in a fully configurable way, according to current needs and with a gentler and more efficient treatment of the crop, according to Luis Alvarez, Design Manager and Development at Piersanti.
The RHD-8200 header is designed to attach directly to a self-propelled mower. In this way, it significantly improves the performance of swath movement and the quality of the hay compared to traditional systems. Thanks to a hydraulically controlled swivel arm system, it has a variable working width of up to 8,200 mm.
The opening and closing system of the two collectors that form the head with tarpaulins can be activated without having to stop the mower, reducing working times and allowing raking to the right or left if both collectors are closed while raking are spaced, it can be rowed to the middle. It also allows to work individually with the rotation of the canvases, both in the same direction and in the opposite direction.
DF and DHF
This level of innovation and disruption is not new to Piersanti, as its portfolio also includes the already classic DF head and its update, the DHF. In the words of Luis Alvarez: “DF is a product that is already consolidated on the market and several of which are working in the country. With this equipment, the regulation of the Flexibel is electric, which earned an award, in addition to the implementation of the WiFi box, which went very well. The other product is the DHF, based on the previous one but with 3 working configurations, able to form a central row, a side row or be used for direct threshing”.
