Silagewagons - Siwa

Unloading in record tempo

Powerhouse

Mechanically driven

The new Schuitemaker silage wagon is the world record holder when it comes to unloading the wagon. It is possible to unload a Schuitemaker Siwa with distribution silage beaters and a good 48m³ of grass in the box in only 48 seconds nicely and evenly spread over the silage. That is about 1m³ per second, an absolute record! With a perfect mix of reliable components, new production techniques and a modern design, the new Siwa Silage wagon is totally ready for the future. The robust and characteristic way that it is built by Schuitemaker makes the Siwa the powerhouse of silage wagons. The Siwa with 4 mechanically driven wheels has been specially developed for extremely wet and difficult conditions. The Siwa has a PTO-driven gearbox in the bottom frame. From here there is a driveline to the front axle. A drive shaft runs from the front axle to the second axle. A standard feature of the mechanically driven SIWA is its hydraulic suspension. The gearbox is controlled from the tractor on which the controls are mounted.

Fast unloading

The new generation of Schuitemaker silage wagons is fitted with a mechanical scraperfloor drive unit. Years of experience combined with the newest drive technology makes the new mechanical drive the unloading technique of the future. The completely new drive guarantees you an unloading time that has not been shown by silage wagons until now. A new Siwa 720W with two distribution rollersand a load of 48m3 of grass silage can be literally emptied in lessthan 50 seconds.  In addition, the load can be nicely and evenly spread over the silage clamp, when a driving silage isused.  Thus not a great pile of grass or maize but a neat blanket of grass or maize spread over the silage.  The man on the silage does not have much work to do in spreading the grass and so he has more than enough time over to drive over the silage. That improves the quality of the silage!

Developed for heavy work

The newsilage wagons do not only look well-built and sturdy, they are also reallystrong and developed for heavy work. You can see that in every facet. Take, forexample, the construction of the box. Directly noticeable are the side panels.Despite the fact that the silage wagon has been brought completely up to date,the well-known Schuitemaker side panels remain. These panels form, namely, thebasis of the body and thus the backbone of the silage wagon. Unlike others,Schuitemaker does not use tin-plate for the side walls but 1.5mm thick steelthat they roll themselves in their own rolling mill. The silage wagon isextremely robust thanks to the side panels, and the cage construction makes thesilage wagon completely indestructible. In addition a steel load base is partand parcel of a professional and robust machine. Here no concessions are made.If you choose a Schuitemaker silage wagon, then you are choosing forreliability. All boxes have an outside width of 2.5 meters and an insidewidth of 2.4 meters.

Comfortable when travelling

TheSchuitemaker Siwa 660 and 720 are both fitted with pendulum tandem axles withthe unique Schuitemaker STEADY-DRIVE-SYSTEM. This system guarantees what otherscannot, namely a perfect riding style on the road, on the land and, especially,on the silage. Modern tandem axles are mostly designed for riding on the roadbut not for riding forwards and backwards on the silage. COMFORTDRIVE EASYDRIVEensures that the pressure is distributed over both axles and all the good propertiescome together in one tandem. During independent tests it has also been shownthat the pendulum tandem really substantiates these distinguishing advantagesas compared with other tandems. The Schuitemaker Siwa 780 and 840 three axlesare fitted with a hydraulic suspended tridem chassis.

default

Twistlock fastening: Solid and flexible

Theconnection between the box and the chassis on all Siwa silage wagons is madewith the totally trustworthy TWISTLOCK connections, well known in the transportworld. This connection not only guarantees a solid fastening of the load box,it also gives flexibility. The box can therefore be replaced by otherSchuitemaker equipment such as a slurry tank or manure spreader.

default

Suspended drawbar: Optimum comfort

All silagewagons are fitted with a suspended drawbar to help with the road holdingability especially with a full load. When riding over road humps or travellingacross fields, the drawbar takes care of many jolts and bumps for the tractorand driver. A rubber sprung drawbar is supplied as standard on the Siwa 660 and720 but optionally a luxury hydraulic variant can be selected. The Siwa 780 and840 have a hydraulic suspended drawbar as standard.

default

Rear door: Plenty of room when unloading silage

As with allSchuitemaker Rapide precision chop loader wagons, the rear door of the silage wagon can also be opened very wide,even up to 900. Therefore there is plenty of room to unload thesilage quickly. In addition, the side panels at the back run further than thescraper floor  and the silage stayslonger in free fall.  In this way, theSiwa unloads more evenly than many other wagons, even without measuringbeaters.

default

Extra capacity

The volume of the silage wagon can be easily increased by mounting a 30cm high yellow upper steel pannel. This upper steel panel is delivered for the complete upper surface and is afull enclosure. Also an extended backdoor is optionally deliverable.
A hydraulically controlledcatch can be mounted in the front panel. In this way, the front panel can beopened from the tractor so that the tractor can ride behind the harvester withoutany problems.

default

Lifting axle: more downward pressure and no unnecessary tire wear

The Siwa780 and 840 models are fitted with a hydraulic suspended  tridem chassis.  In addition it is also possible to lift thefront wheels. In this way, more downward pressure is achieved and underdifficult conditions more weight can be distributed over the rear wheels of thetractor if required. When, with a full load, the lifting axle is raised, it iseasy to ride on the silage. This also ensures that there is no unnecessary tirewear when the silage wagon is empty. 

default

Safety package

To see andbe seen are important, certainly for the constantly larger and fasteragricultural traffic. That also applies to silage wagons that are often foundon the road. It is not for nothing that Schuitemaker supplies, as standard, aSafety package for all her silage wagons which consists of LED side lighting,and reflective strips on the rear door and mudguards.

Mechanically driven

The Siwa with 4 mechanically driven wheels hasbeen specially developed for extremely wet and difficult conditions. The Siwa has a PTO-driven gearbox in the bottom frame. From here thereis a driveline to the front axle. A drive shaft runs from the front axle to thesecond axle. A standard feature of the mechanically driven SIWA is its hydraulic suspension.
