Vicon T-Rex Shuttle

The T-Rex Shuttle transfer wagon has been developed in order to optimize the logistic efficiency of harvesting and transporting crops. Crops can be transferred quickly to trucks at the edge of the field, enabling considerably larger amounts of silage to be transported in less time. Employing trucks increases the efficiency of transporting maize silage in addition to saving on costs.

The T-Rex Shuttle has a loading capacity of 30.5m³ DIN, which allows a standard 60m³ DIN truck to be filled with 2 T-Rex Shuttle loads.

The Advantages:

  • The Shuttle increases efficiency of the logistics, and is the link between the forager and trucks for long distance transport.
  • Loading capacity of 30.5m³, meaning a standard truck is filled with two shuttle loads.
  • Fast and efficient unloading thanks to the chain and slat conveyor.
  • Scissor construction can hoist the container to a height of 4.7m.
  • When unloading, the side and rear walls are pushed upwards, avoiding spill-over during transfer of the crop.

Wheel Contruction

  • The T-Rex Shuttle is a single-axle wagon,facilitating easy reversing and maximizing manoeuvrability.
  • As the transfer wagon is fitted with high, wide tires of 800/60R 32, the tensile force required is relatively low – resulting in less compaction and damage to soil surfaces.
  • This makes the transfer wagon highly suitable for harvesting activities during difficult and wet conditions.
  • The optional telescoping axle adds extra stability during loading and unloading and increases the track width by 1 m.


Unloading at 4.70m Height

  • When transferring crop, a scissor construction hydraulically hoists the container to a height of approximately 4.70 m.
  • The optional telescoping axle adds extra stability during loading and unloading and increases the track width by 1 m.



Fast Unloading

  • The 3-step hydraulically driven chain and slat conveyor guarantees a short transfer time of less than 2 minutes.
  • This creates substantial savings, both in time and costs. No time is lost.
  • An optional camera can be fitted at rear of the T-Rex Shuttle.
  • Side and rear end walls are pushed upwards during unloading



Non-Stop Harvesting Chain

  • The T-Rex Shuttle transfer wagon has been developed in order to optimize the logistic effi ciency of harvesting and transporting crops.
  • It will act as the efficient link between the forager and trucks waiting at the edge of the field.
  • The T-Rex Shuttle is designed to suit the most efficient harvesting chain, and two T-Rex Shuttles will help you keeping the harvesting system busy and effi cient.
  • While the first T-Rex Shuttle is following the forager the second one is unloading at the truck, always keeping both ends of the harvesting chain busy.
  • The T-Rex Shuttle has a loading capacity of 30.5 m³ DIN, which allows a standard 60 m³ DIN truck to be filled with 2 T-Rex Shuttle loads.
  • Crops can be transferred quickly to trucks at the edge of the fi eld, enabling considerably larger amounts of silage to be transported in less time.
  • Employing trucks increases the efficiency of transporting grass and maize silage in addition to saving on costs.
