Hi Matthias as far as I know they are only used for Sugarbeet, Standen built the base machine the farmer supplied his own tractor or could buy it complete they were once a common sight in beet growing areas some had MF35x or MF135 some had Super Dexta or Ford 3000/3600 also David Brown 880 was used I only know of one with a John Deere power unit

Hi Paul, thank you for the info to that time German farmers use only trailt beet harvesters or rap around the tractor models

This might be a Standen Cyclone - many farms had Standen machines around Kidderminster (where British Sugar had a factory). Apologies if I have got the name wrong - its nearly 30 years since I worked in Kidderminster (very close to the beet factory). In years past the sugar beet "Campaign" would finish around now and Kidderminster would smell totally different for another 9 months. Standen were MF dealers so Massey power units were the norm.
