Tree shaker for cherry, and plums
A labor-saving and effective harvesting machine.
GACEK tree shaker is designed to harvest sour cherries, plums, and other stone fruit growing in rows.
The trailed tree shaker for cherry and plum GACEK grabs the trunk, covers it and shakes the tree, then transport the fruits via a conveyor belt, all impurities like leaves or twigs are removed with a fan and the fruits are collected into a big box ( 500 kg) or small boxes.
Performance & Features:
- It guarantees above 95% of efficient harvesting and high-quality fruits.
- In optimal conditions, GACEK can collect fruits from 50-60 trees/hour.
- Tree shaker GACEK a modern solution was adopted – reversed ‘umbrella – tarpaulin’ that is opened hydraulically under the tree before shaking the tree.
- GACEK machine is especially recommended for family farms with cherry and plum orchard areas of up to 5 ha.
- Above 10 ha, we recommend over-row harvester JAGODA 300
- In order to operate the tree shaker harvester two or three people are needed: one tractor driver and 1-2 persons to handle the tree shaker
Preparing orchard for mechanical harvest:
In order to achieve the best work effects, proper preparation of the orchard is extremely important. It is a basic condition for a good operation of the GACEK fruit tree shaker. In case the orchard conditions don’t match our harvester, we provide a tree shaker with tarpaulin G-004 to fit different conditions.
