Large-scale windrow turner

Large-scale windrow turner

Scarab’s largest windrow turner model is a 27 x 11 model (27-foot tunnel width by 11-foot tunnel height) and is one of the biggest in production in the world. Units are available with track drive or wheel drive, with standard flail drum and auger style sizes from 32 inches to 66 inches (OD), and horsepower from 385 hp to 630 hp. Six-foot to 18-foot models are also available.  

Features of Scarab turners include a choice of standard drive system or a pad saver model for toe-to-toe windrows, as well as a choice of Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, and John Deere diesel engines. These units use a high-capacity radiator and offer a choice of track- and tire-drive systems to handle the most adverse pad conditions, as well as either a hydraulic or belt driven drum.  

A digital load controller is standard on all machines to ensure maximum power and fuel efficiency, and these unit’s heavy-duty frame and drive assemblies with independent suspension are designed to “float” the machine across varying terrain. Units feature an open design for easy access and lower maintenance costs, as well as a spacious and ergonomic cab with panoramic view and three rear-facing cameras. Also in the cab, an intuitive joystick control simplifies training and operation.  

A variety of options are available, including an anti-vandalism package which includes locking caps on all fluid reservoirs and fill openings, an automatic fire suppression system, and spray and odour suppression systems.  Scarab Manufacturing
