The Top Air Topper Windrower Series of harvesters continues to be a mainstay in the onion industry. The first step of the “Two Step” method of harvest, Topper Windrowers are very popular in areas where growers prefer to cure the onions in windrows after the tops are removed. Extremely high capacity, coupled with very gentle handling make these machines capable of harvesting any type of onion. Our patented Top Air topping system utilizes air and a sickle knife to efficiently sever the tops from the onions. The onion tops, along with other light debris are then ejected out the rear of the machine. The lowering conveyor system then gently transfers the clean onions to the ground into windrows. After curing, the windrows can be picked up by any one of our Top Air high capacity loaders in the second step of the “Two Step” method. Topper Windrowers are custom manufactured to match any bed width and windrow configuration.
