Very manoeuvrable with optimum stability

The 540h MAXI is ideal for all tall tree crops including avocados, cherries, lychees and more. This machine can be specified with all our popular factory options and attachments to build the machine that’s suited to your particular needs. Tandem four wheel drive for added stability, Hydrafork attachment for shifting bins and even free-wheeling hubs for easy transportation.

Safe, manoeuvrable, fast and efficient

The 540h MAXI has a low tail profile, good reach and a working height of up to 7.50m. This means it operates in tight spaces with ease.

Hands free operation for productivity

Unique three-pedal foot controls in the platform floor. Independent wheel drive means you can turn on the spot and lift simultaneously, hands free.

Powered by high torque petrol engine

Kohler petrol engines are reliable, powerful and fuel efficient, with low noise and vibration levels. They’ve been powering Hydralada since 1975.

Picking Bag

The Hydralada picking bag quick taches to the front of the operator platform. It has been specially designed to carefully handle fruit without bruising. Fruit passes through the bags three internal compartments and is then emptied into a field bin. Carefully monitored trials have shown the Hydralada picking bag provides the best results, delivering high quality fruit to the pack house.
Tandem Four Wheel Drive

This option increases the machines overall stability and improves traction on rough, uneven and sloping terrain. It includes four powerful high torque hydraulic motors and the driving wheels are mounted on an oscillating beam which acts like a suspension giving 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.

Twin Castor Rear Wheels

More stability than the standard single castor rear wheel, the Twin castor option is often included with Tandem Four Wheel drive making for a truly versatile machine for working sloping property.

Hand Control

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