Fruit harvester machines

The machines are similar to very strong street sweepers. They are easy to use and with them the fruit harvest is really fun. They are suitable for use both at scattered fruit trees and on plantations. The picking up of apples, pears, plums and walnuts with the machine is even under the harshest conditions possible, for example in the wet mulch grass, tall grass and foliage. The machines have practice tests in knee-high, foliage and autumn damp grass and passed with flying colors.


Thanks to its sophisticated technology they are driving on slopes with up to 35 degree incline which is not an insurmountable task. Transport (up to 45 degrees with a differential lock) Depending on the conditions and crop density, the self-propelled fruit harvesting equipment between 1-8 tons of fruit per hour into the container. The collecting containers have a capacity of 35-700 liters.

With these harvesting devices, a significant increase in productivity in the short cider fruit harvest season, however with the profitability increase will take place, the drive systems mechanically through gears and automatically tensioned belt and fully hydraulically driven industrial engines with outputs from 5.5 hp to 18 hp. Which approximately 180 kg to 1500 kg machines are infinitely variable forward and reverse, driven with optional differential lock, and reach speeds from 0.5 to 16 km / h.

Cleaning technology of fruit

The working principle of automatic fruit picking is very simple: A roller with rubber fins, taking the fruits from the ground and discharges it out along a trajectory in the container. On the way passing the fruit a sophisticated cleaning system. The fruit is taken without contamination.

Working with the machine

Collecting is always done from the trunk-outwards. For individual trees in a clockwise direction so that the wheel and the left drive wheel always run outside. In this way, no fruit will be crushed by the wheels. In the cultivation of orchard, rotors can collect in each direction. With a large proportion of leaves or grass mulched much work rate from 0.5 to 3 km / h, since this is the best cleaning quality.

Prevailing conditions in the orchard grass and plant

Optimal conditions you have, if the grass carpet between 15 and 25 cm high. The operator achieved:

  • Optimal cleaning of fruit (such as cleaned by hand)
  • Long shelf life of fruit
  • Highest degree of collection, bridges the grass contours on uneven ground
  • On slopes the fruit in the grass cover are fixed and can roll it in front of the machine
  • Even in wet weather can very well be picked up
