Newly-developed store loaders
GRIMME's SL 900 and SL 700 series store loaders have been newly developed for the 2022 season.
The belt width on the new SL 900 series has been increased from 800 mm to 900 mm. The trough shape of the conveyor belt has also been optimised so higher throughputs can be achieved. The series includes two models: The SL 916 with conveying lengths from 9.7 m to 16.5 m and the SL 919 with conveying lengths from 11.2 m to 19.5 m. As an option, the "Quantum feeding conveyor" is available for both models, for a constantly low drop height, regardless of the swivel angle of the store loader.
The new SL 700 series are equipped with a 66 cm wide and 16.5 m long conveyor belt and can be equipped with the Quantum in-feed conveyor. This means that a maximum conveying length of 17.7 m can be realised. Like the SL 900 series, the SL 700 series now also has the new store house filling functions and a new, intuitive operation.
