We have both hand-operated and motorised nut harvesting equipment available. The scale of your production will influence the type of equipment that is most suitable – and cost effective – for you.
If you have just a few trees, a hand-operated Nut Roller will probably be sufficient. A small family orchard might prefer a double-basket Push Harvester or a harvester that is pulled along behind a ride-on lawn mower to save time and effort. A commercial operator is likely to need a motorised solution with higher capacity.
All sizes of push harvesters available, including:
- 12″ series (single basket): A0010, A0011 and A0012
- 18″ series (single basket): A5000, A5001 and A5002
- 36″ series (double basket): A6000, A6001, A6002, A6003
Easy to operate; requires very little force. Just push it along and the nuts ‘flip’ into the black baskets at the front. Covers more ground than the Nut Roller. Push harvesters available for all nut sizes – from small acorns all the way up to pine cones and including honky (gum) nuts.
A range of high-quality, ride-on motorised harvesting machines with hydraulic emptying systems for central collection of nuts in the orchard or processing plant, ready for transport. Machines include the OB70R (similar to a ride-on lawn mower), the OB80R (the most popular of the ride-on harvesters) and the OB100A (suitable for more extensive operations or contractors).
