Plum and cherry harvester
About the product
This machine is very efficient at harvesting plums, cherries and similar fruit. The machine uses a shaking clamp in order to shake the fruit trees making the fruit fall down. Fruit falls down on a rolling canvas. After all of the fruit has fallen onto the canvas, the canvas rolls up and doing so, it transports the fruit onto a conveyor belt. A fan is positioned at the end of the conveyor belt and it blows off the leaves and other unwanted material.
From the conveyor the fruit fall into a standard fruit crate.The conveyor transports the fruits to the receiving crate. The harvester is pulled by a tractor driven by a minimum 25 kW power engine.
The harvester can be used in fields, where the distance between the trees is 4 x 2m and the height from the ground to the lowest branches is at least 0,5m. The machine is operated by 5 workers.
It is possible to harvest 2 trees per minute, depending on the ground configuration.
