The operator must feel safe with simple smooth controls and will keep the Squirrel moving so that the fruit is within easy reach, the same as if they were picking on the ground, always moving as they operate.
As they trust the Squirrel they will operate in gear 2 instead of gear 1 and using gear 3 for travelling to the bin. The operator can adjust the engine RPM to get their ideal speed. With a large picking bag needing only 4-5 bags to fill a bin the operator is more efficient.
All New SD Foot Controls reduce foot pressure by 50%.
The SQUIRREL is a machine with unique foot controls, giving three dimensional movement without the operator shifting his feet. A wide seat belt holds the operator directly above the foot pedals giving a safe and comfortable working position. The fully adjustable spring centred foot pedals allow you to continue working with both hands free AT ALL TIMES. This proven feature alone makes the SQUIRREL the most efficient machine.
New foot stops are larger and can now be adjusted without tools, rotate up 70º and slide to next hole then rotate down 70º. They cannot be removed from the pedal unless a nyloc nut is undone. New foot pedals are bigger with more gap around sides to allow fruit to fall through.
Hand Control (Optional extra)
Low voltage insulation (Optional extra)
Two separate connection points have non-conductive HDPE bushes increases low voltage safety by having these two LV joints. Includes rubber coated cage, boom and stabilizer bar; insulated hydraulic hoses and 4 cage pivots.
505 LV Squirrels have 3 large oil tanks to keep the oil temperature low.
Tested and certified to AS1418.10. Recommended for street tree pruning near power lines.
Safe In & Out of Cage
The SQUIRRELs Cage: is safe and easy to enter and exit - no bending and twisting under hand rails. It is automatically closed and latched with 2 separate latches. As the rear seat belt is attached, getting in and out is safe and fast. To un-latch it requires 2 fingers to lift two latches, then push back. The latch handles are recessed in the back inside corner.
Very High pressure Hoses
The last 1.5m of hydraulic hose to the cage are non-conductive and very high pressure - rated max working of 700bar (10,000psi) the Squirrel system is only set at max 2,500 psi giving a very long life. We fit special long shells & hose tail fittings to the hose to stop damage the outer cover.
