Those who saw it at the Wangu Embori Farm in Timau on March 17 agree that the new generation harvester, Claas Tucano 320, is still in a class of its own.
Marketed in Kenya by Farm Engineering Industries Limited, the beast – as they love to call it – was a showcase.
“It was great we really liked it,” said Olive Wanjiru, an employee of the farm associated with veteran politician Kenneth Matiba.
The new generation of Claas Tucano 320 has a single conventional drum and straw walker and its entry into Kenya will give farmers some reliable machine.
This particular Claas Tucano has proved extremely popular with smaller to medium sized arable farmers and contractors, wanting a high capacity combine without all the additional bells and whistles of the Lexion range. It comes with yield mapping and GPS Pilot system that ensures innovative and convenient control and performance monitoring.
Also, a farmer is assured of 20% more throughput with the APS threshing system.
One of the reasons the Tucano has stood out in the medium sized sector is the use of the well-proven Accelerated Pre-Separation (APS) threshing system, and more recently the APS hybrid system. Both help ensure that high outputs can be maintained even in difficult threshing conditions.
There are also new ranges of Tucano models that have new features in order to further boost output and productivity.
Topping the line-up is the new Tucano 570 which is fitted with an APS hybrid threshing system. The four-model Tucano 400 range uses the APS system in combination with straw walkers, whilst the Tucano 320 has single conventional drum and straw walkers.
