Self-Propelled Windrow Turner BACKHUS A 75

The most Powerful, Series Production Windrow Turner in the World, Made in Germany

As the operator of a large-scale plant for the treatment or composting of organic waste, you probably depend daily on the use of transfer technology machinery that meets the highest demands. Performance, reliability and ergonomics are just a few of the requirements to be met. Alternatively, if you are currently still in the planning phase of a composting plant with high input quantities, you will also be facing a similar situation. You will not only be looking for a self-propelled windrow turner that has the highest level of throughput, you will also need to be impressed by its practical and flexible handling. This is where your search is over, because with the BACKHUS A 75 you will have found what you need.

Whether for organic or green waste, sewage sludge or even palm oil residues and sugar cane production, you will be making a decision that delivers efficient windrow composting. Equally, the self-propelled windrow turner is also extremely capable in the fields of soil remediation and industrial mixing of different substrates. With the throughput rates it achieves, of up to 7,000 m³ per hour, you will be amazed at the productivity!

And if you are thinking that a machine with such outstanding performance also comes with high fuel consumption, then this is not the BACKHUS A 75. With the integrated BACKHUS Management System (BMS), the self-propelled windrow turner is adapted to your needs to provide reliable, heavy-duty work and optimise the performance of the machine. As a result, fuel savings of up to 15% are possible. And that is not exactly a negligible amount with a powerful 450 kW drive motor.

Like the other BACKHUS brand mobile turners, the largest model also has compact operating and transport dimensions. In addition to the high flexibility that results, and the corresponding ideal suitability to use across different operations, the impressive features of the BACKHUS A 75 include a highly efficient footprint with possibly the best in class space utilisation. Because of its track clearers, triangular windrows can be placed right next to each other so that an additional lane between the windrows becomes redundant.

The frame of the BACKHUS A 75 windrow turner is ergonomically designed, so that the material to be turned only comes into contact with the rotor during turning. As the material is discharged, the windrow is simultaneously reformed almost without touching the machine frame.

When it comes to ergonomics, a further highlighted feature of the machine is the spacious 360-degree panoramic cabin. Equipped with a driver's seat with air suspension and armrests, generous LED touch screen displays and a joystick installed for convenient one-hand operation, it becomes a comfort zone with every pass of a windrow.
