Fruit shaker OS

The fruit shaker OS is a 3-point rope shaker. It is either connected to the tractor at the front or at the rear and driven by the PTO. The 54-pound unit is normally equipped with a ten-meter-long steel cable that is hooked into the main branches of the crown. Then the rope is strained and the shaking process can begin.

With a rope shaker you can get fast and labor-saving the apples from the tree. The loop of the steel cable is suspended from the bottom in each tree two to three times. The acquirement of the very inexpensive and robust fruit shakers is already profitable for farmers who only own a few fruit trees. A big advantage are the business aspects (about 30% time savings), but especially huge assistance. Someone, who has already shaken big apple trees by hand, knwos that this is an extremely energy-consuming                                                                                                     affair. Furthermore there's the risk to fall from a tree.

 

 

The handling with the rope shaker is easy to learn. The rope shaker is on the market for over than 20 years and was sold more than 5500 times so far.

Recommendation

Compared to the conventional ladder principle, tree shaking is more than 50% faster when using our patented telescopic handle for fixing the roap onto a branch.

Advantages

  • Easy assembly at front or rear PTO on every tractor with tree-point linkage category 1.
  • Robust bearing dimensioning (2800 kg)
