Vegetable Harvesting Booms
Vegcraft specialises in front tractor-mounted booms for harvesting a wide variety of vegetable crops from lettuce and cabbage to fresh herbs and broccoli. We custom design and build each machine, allowing us to fulfil your harvesting needs. The basis of our machines is a strong galvanized steel platform with an aluminium and PVC canopy. All areas of product contact use stainless steel and all other parts are aluminium and galvanised steel.
The interior of the rig will be designed to meet the needs of your harvest operation, with an emphasis on getting maximum efficiency from a minimum of mechanization. Features in previous rigs include packing tables, taping machines, wash bowls, roller tables, flow-wrapping machines and many others.
Vegcraft machines usually use aluminium roller conveyors to transfer packed trays of product back to a towed workstation or harvest curtain-sided trailer.
For ease of transport Vegcraft harvesters have a 3-point linkage for quick unhitching, and have plug-in wheels and drawbar for towed road transport. The canopy folds to bring it within 2.5m width and the machines have road lighting.
