CONDITIONS WHEN WINNING THE CONTEST

The execution of the R3060 proposed by Dewulf will meet the specific requirements for the cultivation of the winner. Here, it is possible that the harvester has a serial number from 2021 (nearly new) or 2022 (new).

Dewulf will coordinate together with the winner on where and when the harvester is to be delivered. Dewulf cannot be held liable for the delayed delivery of the harvester, caused by unforeseen circumstances. The transportation costs for the delivery and the return of the harvester shall be borne by the user.

The harvester can be used free of charge for a maximum of 175 hectares in the year 2022. Every additionally harvested hectare shall be compensated in accordance with the terms and conditions stated in the lease contract.

During the usage period, the harvester is under the warranty of Dewulf. This warranty only applies to the frame, the diesel engine, the entire powertrain as well as all hydraulic, electric and electronic components. All parts and wear parts that require replacement during the usage period shall be charged to the user. All spare parts, filters and oils must be purchased from Dewulf. Depending on the region, this can be done via the dealer or directly from the manufacturer. As soon as non-original parts are used, the contest is voided and the entire amount of harvested hectares must be compensated in accordance with the amount stated above.

The user of the harvester must have completed the ‘Dewulf Driver Training’.

The user shall be in possession of civil liability insurance.

The harvester shall be used and maintained (periodical service and replacement of wear parts) with all due care. A condition report shall be prepared between Dewulf and the user on return of the harvester. Costs shall be charged to the user in the event one of the following points is determined:

  • Damage caused by foreign objects or external factors
  • Use of the machine that can be considered as abusive, abnormal, overloading or incorrect
  • Failure to check the oil level in the engine and hydraulic system, tyre pressure, wheel bolt torque, failure to clean the radiator and air filters, etc. (in accordance with the manual)
  • Failure to perform a visual inspection of the machine on a regular basis
  • Failure to clean and lubricate the machine on a regular basis
  • Failure to have certain ‘campaigns’ performed on the machine, as instructed by Dewulf
  • Failure to heed or take action in response to fault messages reported by the onboard computer
  • Incorrect towing or hoisting of the machine

In the event of the failure of a specific part, the harvester may not be continued to be used to prevent further damage as a result of this initial failure.

Furthermore, compensation can never be claimed for direct or indirect damage or losses resulting from the breakdown of the harvester.

The costs for fuel and AdBlue consumption shall be borne by the user.

In the event of theft, the user shall agree to pay the following waivers resulting from the connected “multi-risk insurance”, which Dewulf has taken out:

  • €2500 per claim
  • €10,000 in the event of theft of the harvester.

Dewulf reserves the right to install a “track & trace” system on the harvester.

The harvester can be purchased following the 2022 harvesting season. At the purchase of the harvester, Dewulf’s general terms and conditions for purchase apply.

In the event that the harvester is not purchased following the usage period, the harvester must be cleaned thoroughly before its return. In the event that the harvester is not cleaned before being returned, the costs involved in the cleaning of the harvester shall be charged to the user.

Damage to the ‘bodywork’ shall be charged to the user. In the event that the machine is returned with damage to its ‘bodywork’ following the usage period, the repair of the damage shall be charged separately to the user.

All aforementioned matters shall be incorporated in a lease contract. Only when this lease contract has been signed can the prize of this contest be claimed.

 

CONSEQUENCE OF NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The Agreement is fully, completely and exclusively subject to Belgian law.
Any dispute arising from this Agreement shall be subject to the sole jurisdiction of the competent courts in the judicial district of Ghent (Kortrijk division).
