Trunk shaker PESTKA is designed to harvest sour cherries, plums, industrial apples, olives and other fruits intended for juices, cider, preserves etc. PESTKA is aggregated with the agricultural tractor equipped with three-point linkage and external hydraulic systems. The trunk shaker captures the tree trunk by paw grip and vibrates it. The collected fruits fall to screens that are spread under a tree (screens are not included in the standard equipment of PESTKA) and must then be poured into boxes. Any leaves and twigs should be removed with a blower.
- PESTKA trunk shaker uses the tractor’s external hydraulic system, which allows for a simpler structure than similar devices from other manufacturers.
- The effectiveness of shaking off can be adjusted by simply changing the mass of the rotating components of the shaking head.
- The length of the boom supporting the shaker is adjustable from 1200 to 2000mm, which makes it easier to work in the orchards of irregular row spacing.
- Thanks to the boom turn of 900 to the right and to the left, you can simultaneously harvest from both row sides. In this option 2 sets of screens and an additional 2 people to support them are necessary.
