29-33m³ Super-Vitesse Forage Wagon


Super-Vitesse - Pure power with latest technology

The Super-Vitesse, and its unique Continuous Flow System excels by its excellent cutting quality. The conveying assembly with the double-cut cutting unit, equipped with 39 double-sided knives, offers the best prerequisite for optimum fodder quality. Due to its performance, the Super-Vitesse represents a perfect solution for professional dairy farms, machinery cooperatives, and even some contractors. Given high energy costs, this forage wagon is able to gain a significant advantage compared to other harvesting methods.

Forage Wagon Super Vitesse

Strautmann forage wagons have a lower drag resistance than those of the competitors. The Continuous Flow System increases this advantage as our years of experience have shown. It is the continuous material flow, "Continuous Flow", which makes the difference.

 ● Loading capacity according to DIN of 29 & 33 m³ ● Continuous Flow System accelerator drum ● Spiral rotor ● 39 double-sided knife cutting unit ● Power required from 120 HP


Continuous Flow System


Continuous Flow System

Due to the interaction of the different components, the Continuous Flow System unit ensures excellent loading performance and a low power requirement. The pick-up, Continuous Flow System roller, rotor and double-cut cutting unit are optimally matched to each other. This results in an excellent cutting quality and power efficient drive, saving time and money.

Low power requirement

The newly developed pick-up and the Continuous Flow System drum spreads out and disperses the swathe and feeds it over the entire width of the rotor and the cutting unit. The rotor, which is mounted 100mm higher, conveys the pre-wilted green fodder through the shortened conveyor duct into the cargo space, thus saving energy and reducing the power requirement by approx. 10%.

Full width filling

Thanks to the Continuous Flow System roller spreading the forage over the whole rotor width, the material is loaded into the cargo space over its entire loading space. We measured 10% more weight per cubic metre. The Continuous Flow System gives more weight than the competitors at the same capacity, making the tonnage capacity more important than the cargo space volume.

High Performance

A better filling spread also affects acreage performance. The areas to be harvested can be cleared quicker and the fodder is moved faster to the clamp. After all, time is money.

Optimum adaptation to ground contours

Due to the design of the Continuous Flow System drum, the pick-up is at a very shallow angle, such that the pressure exerted on the feed rollers is very low, which enables the pick-up to better adapt to the contours of the ground.

Furthermore, the green fodder is continuously and gently picked up due to the V-shaped helical arrangement of the pick-up tines. 

Tines are always picking up, but the V-shape means not all tines are touching the ground at the same time, preventing power peaks.

Protection of drives

Due to the homogeneous and continuous flow of material, the Continuous Flow System conveying unit runs very smoothly and consistently, meaning there are hardly any peak loads. And if there are no peak loads, the complete drive unit will be free from excessive forces ensuring a long service life of the conveying unit and therefore of the entire forage wagon.

Longer service life of knives

As the Continuous Flow System spreads the grass evenly across the chopping rotor there is an even load on each of the knives. This means that knives wear more consistently and the sharpening interval is extended. On machines without a Continuous Flow System the central knives become blunt and reduce machine performance, this does not happen with a Strautmann Continuous Flow System pick-up. In addition, the knives are designed so that you are able to sharpen or replace only the blades that you need to, rather than all of the knives.

Conveying Unit CFS Conveying Unit

Conventional conveying unit:

The picked-up green fodder is delivered to the rotor without spreading-out effect. The rotor and the cutting unit are partially loaded.

Continuous Flow System conveying unit:

The picked-up green fodder is dispersed by the pick-up and the accelerator drum and fed to the rotor and cutting unit over the entire width.

Continuous Flow System feed rotor

● Robust conveyor drum with helically arranged conveyor fins with Hardox tine plates ● Smooth operation, with no peak loads due to the helical rotor design ● One-sided, torsion-free drive of loading rotor due to low-maintenance gearbox ● Wide strippers with Hardox plates.

Continuous Flow System drum

● Distributor drum between the pick-up and rotor. ● Delivers fodder from pick-up to the rotor ensuring low hp requirement ● Even, full width spread of material due to the helical welded layer, so the entire rotor width is utilised, keeping a minimal and constant load on the machine. 

CFS Drum

Continuous Flow System camless pick-up

● Picking-up width of 1.80m ● 6 tine rows placed in a V-shape for smooth and even material flow ● Camless pick-up with very few wearing parts and low maintenance, compared to traditional Cam pick-up systems ● Plastic strippers for minimum tine wear.

Exact-Cut system

A new cutting system with a cutting edge on both sides of the re-designed double-sided blade - a 39mm chop-length is reliably guaranteed. The knives have a rapid-trigger protection function, which automatically retracts them from the chop channel if a foreign object is detected.

They then return automatically to their working position, maximising work-rates while minimising damage to the knives. Exact-cut is now standard on all Strautmann forage wagons, from the smaller Zelon through to the Magnon 10.

  • 39 knives ‘Exact-Cut’ unit 
  • 39mm theoretical cutting/chop length
  • Tool-free knife change


Optional 'Flex-Load' pick-up

The Super-Vitesse forage wagon can be optioned with the new ‘Flex-Load’ pick-up which has six rows of plastic tines arranged in chevron formation. The pick-up is powered hydraulically for infinitely variable adjustment.

  • Less breakage of tines
  • Minimised tine wear
  • Change of tines in under a minute
  • Tines flex to adapt to ground contours
  • Gentle pick up for ground protection
  • Less contamination of fodder 

More information on the flex-load pick-up can be found here


● Tandem axle assembly ● Tandem steering where the rear axle freely follows the movement of the tractor and wagon. Optional: Active steering axle that utilises a second ball-joint on the drawbar which activates the rear axle as the tractor and wagon turns, helping prevent excessive tyre wear.

ISOBUS control

The ISOBUS control offers the driver easy operation without having to familiarise themselves with a new control box. Of course, the ISO suitability also creates the option of operation via existing terminals on the premises or on the tractor. Thus, interesting advantages of the valuable control terminals can be transferred to the machine use.

Central lubrication system

● Centralised grease lubrication system for all lubrication points on the vehicle.

39 knife cutting unit

● Easy cutting cut due to optimum geometry between the cutting knives and rotor ● Knife protection without use of tools ● Turn-able knives due to double-sided blade for longer sharpening intervals and better cutting quality ● Individual knife protection with knife quick-change system ● 39 knives, on one level for a theoretical cutting/chop length of 39 mm ● In case of shortened knives, readjustment of the entire knife bar via upper link ● Hydraulic extending and retracting of the entire knife bar.


Strautmann knife protection - in-work Strautmann knife protection - safety break-back

Instead of the knife being pressured into the rotor, the knife is set up with a cam clutch tyre system. The spot-on triggering, without the spring counter tension, means a foreign object will trigger the knife to roll out of the work position, thus only blunting or damaging one point on the blade. A conventional knife protection will cause the foreign object to travel the entire length of the blade before releasing it, blunting or braking a large portion of the blade.

Transport floor

● Divided transport floor with 4 transport floor chains ● Hydraulic transport floor drive with two 11 mm high-strength chains and handy U-shaped steel sections ● Breaking load of 15 t per chain ● Automatic transport floor chain tightening ● Standard 2-stage feed motor ● Standard bumper buffer

Unloading options


Solid tailgate (standard)

  • With hydraulic locking mechanism
  • Wide opening option for quick discharge
  • With integrated pressure switch for level indicator


Effective dosing drums (optional)

  • Dosing unit with 2 standard beaters
  • Equipped with aggressive ripping tines 
  • Optionally available with 3 beaters for more homogeneous discharge on the silo


Robust drive

  • Driven by large-sized roller chains
  • Safety switch-off at the bottom beater
  • When the wagon is full, the bottom beater is able to move to the rear, thus stopping the transport floor moving.
