COMIA C8

The C8 is super-efficient, thanks to its TS double cylinder system and large grain tank. The AVARA cab is filled with features that add to comfort.

Cab

The COMIA C8 with its two threshing cylinders efficiently threshes any kind of grain. When compared to a single cylinder combine, the threshing efficiency is increased by more than 20%. The engine is a powerful six-cylinder, 210 HP, Tier 5 engine. The grain tank capacity is 5,400 liters to correlate with the harvester’s efficiency. Standard cutting header width is 4.5 metres, but the cutting width can be chosen between 4.2 and 4.8 metres.

Double-cylinder systems have been used in SAMPO combine harvesters since 1996. The patented TS-system significantly increases threshing efficiency in Northern European conditions. The pre-threshing cylinder evens out the material flow and smoothens it before the threshing cylinder, where the threshing mainly takes place. Threshing efficiency is increased as the straw walkers have less work to do.

Cab

AVARA - style and functionality

Eight work lights, modern LED headlights, and a wide windscreen. One of the factors considered during the design of the cab, was the driver’s clear visibility of the cutting header.  The harvesters of the COMIA series have a multi-function drive handle, and the layout of the other controls has also been carefully designed. All threshing-related activities, such as the controls of the machinery and cutting header, are located in the armrest. The console also has 12V and USB connectors. You can easily control the modern COMVISION II touchscreen with one hand while harvesting. It is very easy to monitor threshing, when at the same time you can see e.g., the grain loss monitor, height of cutting table, speed, and warning lights. Any alarms can be seen on the COMVISION II screen as pop-up warnings, and the system also gives out an audible signal.

Cutting header

Excellent cutting headers

Easy to connect, recognised for its geometrics, and fully hydraulic operations. The nylon/plastic tines of the pick-up reel, which have been found to be effective, and the hydraulic header reverse put the finishing touches on this highly functional cutting header.
Whether growth is high or low, Comia’s cutting header, which has been developed over several years, can handle it. The optimal distance from the knife to the feeder auger ensures an uninterrupted feed to the combine's feeder elevator. Side tilt is available as an optional extra.

Threshing mechanism

Efficient threshing mechanism and versatile settings

The COMIA C8 is equipped with the TS double cylinder system. The threshing efficiency when using two threshing cylinders is increased by more than 20%, when compared to a single cylinder machine. Under optimal conditions, up to 40% of threshing takes place at the pre-threshing cylinder. The resulting smoother threshing process notably reduces grain breakage. 
The five straw walkers and a large straw walker surface ensure good separation. The RV2 lamella upper sieve efficiently removes chaff and the RV3 lower lamella sieve sieves clean grain into the tank.

Transmission

Power and durability

Every combine harvester of the COMIA-series has a strong three-gear gearbox. The gearbox has a hydraulic clutch assist, which makes shifting easy and handy. In order to activate the clutch assist, you simply press a button on the gear stick. The gearbox is powered by a strong hydraulic motor, which can be controlled continuously from the cab using the drive handle.
A strong front axle equipped with final drives and disc brakes, allowing for the use of wide tires. Optionally, the COMIA can be equipped with extra wide tires. You can check from the specifications, which tires suit with your COMIA. Hydraulic four-wheel drive, which helps driving in tough conditions, is available as an optional extra.

Cleaning

The undisputed leader on the market with regards to cleanability

Thanks to their technical solutions, the SAMPO ROSENLEW combine harvesters have always been easy to clean. For example, the grain pan sections can be extracted and the straw walker bottoms can be removed. Although the same features may be included in other makes, SAMPO has implemented them so that you do not have to carry out cleaning in your service area. Instead, you can clean them on the field and have more uptime.

Grain tank

The bigger the tank, the greater the efficiency

This is why the C8 has been equipped with a large 5,400 litre grain tank. The unloading speed and volume of the COMIA 2.0 series has been increased from the previous generation of combine harvesters. Now the unloading speed is 75 l/s, meaning an increase of 50 % from the previous model.
Thanks to the 4-metre unloading height, unloading can handily be done into a trailer with high sides. The long unloading pipe can easily be swung by pressing a button on the drive handle. Unloading is also started from the drive handle.
