-RCR360 System -
The moving concave eliminates the traditional “dead zone” found in typical rotary systems. The grain is threshed three times in each rotation, which increases throughput and provides a cleaner grain sample. The moving concave is self-cleaning.
The rotor system allows the RT490 to be more productive in high-yield fields and in difficult crop conditions than competitive units with a stationary concave.
This combine delivers 490 HP with his large Cummins QSX11.9 diesel engine.
Versatile's RT490 has a chain type of feeder housing which allows for greater feeding capacity and even feeding to the threshing system.
The RT490 has a large stone trap to protect the combine’s critical components. The rock trap can be cleaned out easily with the handle on the left-hand side of the feeder housing.
The Versatile RT490 has a 340 bu. tank capable of being unloaded in less than two minutes. Two horizontal augers set at different heights feed grain into the grain tank to prevent start overload. A large grain tank observation window and a cab platform window give the operator two viewpoints into the grain tank. The grain tank roof can be controlled from the cab to switch from working mode to transport or storage.
-Chopping and Spreading-
The RT490 is equipped with an integrated straw chopper and spreader that performs two functions: shredding straw arriving from the rotor and chaff from the cleaning system. Straw and chaff are uniformly cut and spread or placed in a swath.
