Discovery - Self Propelled Harvester
From Field Packaging
The Discovery is a self-propelled Gantry style harvester, designed to meet specific regional requirements, such as those found in the United States. The system has multiple packing units, box erecting and packing stations and logistics integrated into the harvester. The combination with the side off-load, for the packed boxes to a transportation trailer on the side, makes this system the perfect fit into existing Gantry style operations. Wheelbases from 8 up to 14 meters are available. Upon request a variable wheelbase to suit 40” and 42” beds can be integrated. A typical 12 bed system (40 Feet, 12,2 m) has a production capacity of 7700 packs per hour with only half the crew size of a conventional harvester. The Gantry style rig can also be utilized for other tasks. Road transport is carried out by low loader or with an add-on dolly axle.
