Vervaet has set the standard in slurry injection since as early as
1990, and today it leads the European market for professional
self-propelled application machinery. To maintain and expand this market
leadership we offer high-quality solutions and concepts which are
innovative, easy to operate and service with low maintenance costs and a
high residual value.
Introduced in 2021, the Quad 550 completes
Vervaet’s range of professional manure application technology, the
four-wheel machine fitting in alongside the three-wheel Vervaet Trike
and five-wheel Vervaet Trike XL.
Engine and transmission
The Quad’s 13-litre 550hp 6-cylinder Volvo Penta engine boasts a phenomenal 2650Nm of torque at a stunningly low engine speed of just 1200rpm. Naturally with such a slow-running engine excellent fuel economy also comes as standard. Worldwide engine homologation backed up by a first-rate global service and maintenance network are additional benefits.
The new Vervaet made hydro-mechanical transmission combines the best of both technologies, utilising hydraulic motors to provide infinitely variable speed control to mechanical axles which deal with the high torque loadings associated with the demanding nature of high-output work. With this clever driveline concept the Vervaet Quad offers higher torque than any other self-propelled machine on the market in the crucial 5 to 15 km/h speed range. The Quad’s impressive traction and sheer pulling power is particularly valued whilst injecting slurry with rear-mounted cultivation tools. Diff-locks on each axle and a centre diff-lock are standard because getting stuck in muddy conditions just isn’t part of the plan.
The vast choice of tyres available for the Quad includes 900/60 R38, 900/60 R42, 1050/50 R32, 1000/55 R32, 1250/50 R32, the newest Mitas 1000/65 R32 as well as dual row crop tyres. When fitted with nearly all tyre sizes the Quad doesn’t exceed a 3m maximum transport width.
Ground pressure and maneuverability
The new Quad’s clever engineering stands out and makes it the
lightest and strongest self-propelled machine in its class. It boasts an
ultra-tight turning circle and can also be used in ‘crab steer’ mode so
that each of its massive tyres runs in a different path, spreading its
weight over the widest possible area to avoid soil-damage and
The Quad is fitted with the latest luxurious and
ergonomic Claas cab which provides exceptional comfort and visibility.
All controls easily fall to hand.
Vervaet’s own colour touch
screen computer takes care of the machines main functions. Accuracy is
particularly impressive, with the application rate controlled
automatically by computer. GPS-steering systems can also be used for
further levels of precision. The screen also displays important machine
and spreader data from engine rpm and hydraulic system pressure to
implement settings. It also supplies useful machine monitoring
statistics such as fuel usage and work rate as well as customer or job
specific data which is appreciated by contractors and farmers alike.
You’ll find more familiar Vervaet DNA right behind the radiator with the
proven slurry system featuring a choice of Vogelsang and Börger 9,000
l/min pumps, or the SuperLoad system with 10” piping and a 12,000 l/min
or 13,500 l/min Börger pump. These pump the slurry through the tried and
tested Vervaet cyclone macerator or, as an option, a Vogelsang macerator
fitted before the pump. A loading arm can make or break the efficiency of work and should be flawless and easy
to use. It’s natural for operators to have their individual preferences,
but we have managed to design a single loading arm suitable for every
operator and situation. A loading arm that doesn’t hinder the driver’s
visibility and that is fully road legal throughout Europe. Because we
care for your safety and that of everyone around you in the yard and in the streets!
The Quad’s impressive traction and sheer pulling power is
particularly valued whilst injecting slurry with rear-mounted
cultivation tools. These are carried on a heavy-duty rear-linkage making it
particularly quick and convenient to swap between, for example, an
injector and a cultivator.
