The processing of agricultural land is very difficult and requires not only certain skills, but also the availability of specialized equipment that is able to perform the functions assigned to it fully at any time of the year, day or day. In this case, combine harvesters are ideal for solving the issue of high-quality harvesting. These machines today are high-tech units, characterized by a combination of excellent technical performance and affordable prices. In this article we will talk about the unit called combine "Vector".
Immediately, we note that this machine is produced by the Russian company Rostselmash, which is the largest agricultural machinery manufacturer in the Russian Federation. Combine "Vector", in turn, was created to process small fields, on which this machine can mow stalks, chop them up and select the grain, subsequently loaded into the back of a truck. The maximum efficiency of the unit is achieved in fields with a yield of up to 45 centners per hectare.
The Vector combine differs in modern configuration having the following scheme: cabin - bunker - motor. This feature allows to significantly reduce the noise level in the cabin that occurs when the machine is running. Also, the site for engine maintenance has received more significant dimensions, which makes convenient access to the motor. In addition, the cabin is located in the center of the combine. Therefore, the driver has a good overview of the work area.
The presence of a single hydraulic connector can significantly facilitate the connection of various adapters and reduce the time of this procedure. The high-inertia drum of the combine is the largest in the world among this equipment. However, not only the size favorably distinguishes it. Leading to difficult fields also gives him leadership. The residual separation system ensures minimum grain losses and a high level of purity.
Modern "Vector" has a six-cylinder engine YMZ. Its power is 210 horsepower. It can be increased by 20% during peak loads. At the same time, fuel consumption for such a unit is quite small, and a spacious fuel tank ensures non-stop operation of the machine for 16 hours, which, in turn, reduces the number of refuels in the field and speeds up the harvesting process.
Almost all combine harvesters are literally stuffed with hydraulics. And "Vector" in this matter is no exception. This machine is equipped with a hydraulic transmission, which reduces the wear of metal parts, reduces friction, and this already guarantees a longer service life of the entire unit. The speed of the combine is infinitely and smoothly, maintaining the required amplitude of the machine does not cause difficulties, the performance of the unit is at a high level.
Details about the hydraulic system
The hydraulic system of the combine consists of three pumps combined into one unit, which will allow them to use the same working fluid and one tank. Seals mating surfaces stitched upgrades. Thanks to this, it is easy to achieve the highest possible reliability index even under critical loads. As a matter of fact, the Vektor hydraulic system controls almost all technological processes, including replicating the field to improve the harvest.
This capacity for storage and transportation of grain has a volume equal to six cubic meters. It is unloaded in the interval of two minutes. Vibrators are used to facilitate the process of transporting wet grain. Special sensors monitor the filling of the bunker. When it is filled to the level of 75%, an alarm is activated, prompting the driver to unload as soon as possible. The operator can also visually observe the process of filling the bunker through the viewing window. The hopper flaps open and close with an electrified mechanism.
Combine "Vector" 101 has a very comfortable workplace operator. The cabin is sprung, and therefore almost complete damping of the resulting vibration occurs. The degree of noise insulation also pleases users. The chair can be adjusted to any person's height. In the summer you can use air conditioning, and in the winter - the air heater. External lighting and impressive panoramic glass allows the driver to work without problems even at night and fully control all the processes taking place outside the window.
In general, the Vector combine, whose characteristics will be given below, is very popular with customers. Its main parameters are:
As for the cost of the machine, the Vector combine, the price of which is not too high for this type of equipment, is in the range of 4–4.5 million Russian rubles.
