Picking Bag

Bag quick taches to front of operator platform and is designed to handle fruit without bruising. Fruit passes through three compartments then empties into field bin. Trials show it has the best results, delivering high quality fruit to the pack house.


Tandem Four Wheel Drive

This increases the machine’s overall stability and improves traction on rough, uneven and sloping terrain. Includes four powerful high-torque hydraulic motors and driving wheels are mounted to an oscillating beam for suspension and a smoother ride.


Free Wheeling Hubs

This enables the drive wheels to be disengaged and the machine becomes towable behind a vehicle at a maximum speed of 30kph. This option comes with a heavy duty towing frame. Ideal for transporting the machine without the need for a trailer or truck.


Hydraulic Chainsaw

The safest and most efficient way to prune using a chainsaw from an elevated work platform. Quiet trigger start/stop, no dangerous pull starting, no refuelling, lightweight and powerful. This is available in either pistol grip or pole configuration.


Dual Castor Rear Wheels

Dual Castor Wheels swivel easier than the standard single castor. Friction is reduced by the counter rotating of the two wheels on the special castor leg.


Hand Control

Sometimes hand controls are preferred to the standard three pedals. This is a simple Tiller Lever system located in the front of the operator’s platform. Two handle bars and two tiller levers (one for each drive wheel) makes this very safe and smooth to operate.
