Headboard flap pivots hydraulically towards the front

An additional flap at the front plate helps prevent forage losses during loading operations. In the CARGOS 9000, this headboard flap can be folded forward by 90° to provide greater clearance and facilitate the harvesting process during chopping operations (this feature is optional in the CARGOS 8000).

The headboard flap can additionally be equipped with an integrated, adjustable automatic loading mechanism, which features an angle sensor to detect the tilt of the flap and activate the floor conveyor accordingly. A load pin for torque detection at the rotor drive is also optionally available. The combination of these two sensors ensures optimal wagon filling and the full utilisation of its loading capacity.

Clearing blockages.

The ability to lower the chopper housing comes as standard in all CARGOS dual-purpose wagons. Should a blockage occur, both the blade holder and chopper housing can be easily lowered from the control terminal (automatic lowering is an option). The clearance between the chopper housing and rotor increases as a result, which facilitates PTO drive shaft start-up and therefore allows the blockage to be cleared easily.

Making the most of the available capacity.

In wagons with discharge rollers, a sensor on the lower roller triggers the full signal and limit switch to disengage the floor conveyor. In wagons without discharge rollers, this function is performed by a sensor on the tailgate locking mechanism. An optionally available ultrasonic fill-level sensor measures the distance between the crop and the tailgate. When it sends a “wagon full” signal, which is displayed on the control terminal, the floor conveyor is switched off automatically.


Efficient discharge rollers.

The modular structure makes it easy to fit discharge rollers. The optional discharge roller module comprises either two or three rollers in the CARGOS 9000 and 8000 dual-purpose wagons, and two discharge rollers in the CARGOS 700 forage transport wagon, plus the complete drive train from the main transmission. With extremely strong tines attached in a helical configuration and a diameter of 460 mm, the discharge rollers ensure optimum unloading and ideal forage distribution.

The discharge roller module offers the option of torque-controlled unloading, where the floor conveyor speed is gradually reduced when the drive train of the discharge rollers exceeds a set speed. This speeds up the unloading process and reduces the operator's workload. It takes just 15 minutes to remove the module when the discharge rollers are not required. This further increases discharge speeds and boosts the payload by 0.5 tonnes. Insert sheets are used to seal the holes.

Reliable floor conveyor.

The hydraulic floor conveyor drive system, which is safely integrated in the C-profile, is available in one- or two-speed versions in the CARGOS 8000 and 700 models and comes with two speeds as standard in the CARGOS 9000. In the 
CARGOS 9000 and 700 models, the system is driven on both sides. The continuous drive shaft is supported in the middle to ensure reliable discharge, even with heavy loads. In unloading mode, the floor conveyor can be pivoted up into a horizontal position to allow fast, residue-free discharge.

All CARGOS dual-purpose wagons have a wide-opening tailgate with an adjustable opening angle. The discharge speed can be individually increased at the first floor conveyor speed level to ensure optimal utilisation of the discharge roller throughput capacity. The body widens by 5 cm towards the rear to further optimise the discharge process.
