In order to guarantee proper performance of the harvester, sour cherry trees should be planted and cultivated according to the espalier technology. According to recommendations of the Research Institute of Pomology and Floriculture in Skierniewice (POLAND), the following requirements should be fulfilled:
Large-size trees that are not formed for the purpose of mechanical fruit harvesting are not suitable for harvesting by means of 'FELIX Z' sour cherry harvester.
Sour cherry fruits are harvested continuously from the whole row. The harvester drives to a row of cherry trees and consequently, the trees enter the fruit shake off chamber. Sour cherry fruits that are shaken off by special vertical shaking off devices drop onto the conveyors and are cleaned and carried to 500kg-containers. The containers with fruits are positioned on the working platforms located on both sides of the harvester and unloaded by means of hydraulic lifts. Details concerning the accessories for the harvester are discussed individually with our customers in order to adapt the machine to the customers’ requirements and possibilities.
Demanded very slow gear, from 0,5 km/h; TUZ 1330 kg.
Fruits harvested by 'FELIX Z' harvester may be industrially processed into fruits and various kinds of fruit products. The fruits that have been subjected to a careful selection at slower harvesting speeds are suitable for freezing
'FELIX Z' harvester fulfils all standards and requirements of the European Union with regard to machine safety. As a standard, each seeder is delivered with the instruction manual prepared in one of the following languages: Polish, English, Russian or German. Other language versions of the instruction manual are available on special request of the customer.
We provide spare parts for the machine during the whole period of its operation.
