FarmGEM have launched a new orchard and vineyard range and new small boom mounted and trailed sprayer models.
The orchard and vineyard range consists of mounted and trailed mist blower sprayers, heavy duty mulcher/choppers and harvest platforms. There are mist blower models to suit most requirements from small vineyards to well established orchards.
A unique feature of the mounted and trailed mist blowers is an attachable single or twin stainless steel column system for spraying taller fruit trees. FarmGEM says their mulchers can tackle everything, from orchard inter row maintenance to very heavy duty tasks such as chopping maize stalks.
As for the harvest or maintenance platforms, the hydraulic scissor lift system ensures the exact working height required is easily achievable and the adjustable platform extensions allow the operator to work safely without over reaching.
They are available as either a tractor towed version or a self-propelled version, giving the grower independence from a tractor as well as much improved movability.
Both are available in various widths to suit apple, apricot or plum orchards. Platforms can come complete with compressor and air tank to supply the six work stations with air operated maintenance and harvest tools.
For the FarmGEM crop sprayer range, the existing Quartz ECO trailed model is now available with a new 15, 16 or 18m vertical folding boom. There is also a new 1200 litre mounted sprayer which is available with either “Gull Wing” or “Vertical” folding booms up to 18 metres in width.
The new vertical folding boom comes with full in-cab electro hydraulic operation boom movement including boom lock and independent wing fold.
All these new machines were recently launched at the Agro Show in Poland, and were received well by growers and dealers alike.
