SICMA - Model F3 Umbrella - Self-propelled Harvester
The 3-wheel drive are activated by a high-pressure hydraulic pump controlled by foot-pedals. The machine has two speeds and two reverse gears. The service brake is automatically activated by releasing the pedal which enables the machine to move, whereas the emergency brake, when the engine is turned off, is automatically activated, as the wheel hubs are equipped with negative brakes.
Negative brakes are lamellate blocks, which are blocked when there is no pressure on the brakes cylinders. The handbrake with an in-motion machine is activated by pressing a button on the control panel. The vibrating head movement is hydraulically activated by a joystick and two levers positioned on the driver's console.
The driver’s cab is open on its left side. The seat is equipped with seatbelt.
The vibrating head is mounted on the telescopic arm and is hanged by anti-vibration supports, which prevent the vibration to be transmitted to the driver’s cab.
The high frequency, self-braking vibrating head increases the percentage of harvested fruits in a short time, limiting undesirable ending overvibrations.
The vibrating head movement is hydraulically activated by a joystick and two levers.
