From Onion Equipment
The Top Air Onion Rod Lifter Series utilizes the counter rotating square rod concept to undercut onions. The slightly inclined tandem rod design allows the first rod to make the initial cut, with the second rod loosening the soil from the roots for faster curing of the onions. After undercutting, the onions maintain their upright position to help avoid sunburn. The hydraulic drive replaces drivelines and gearboxes for extremely low maintenance. Guage wheels maintain precise depth for a close, consistent cut. Onion savers can be utilized to prevent onions from falling into corrugations or wheel tracks. Rod Lifters are custom manufactured to match any bed configuration. Our solidly designed Top Air onion harvesters are manufactured with integrity to give our customers years of low maintenance operation.
