The Trel-Pick is a simple and economic solution for pruning, thinning &
picking in trellised orchards.
The Trel-Pick is a simple platform which has four separate operating heights.
The base platform is 1.9m wide x 4.9m in total fixed at 0.9m high. The first .5m is only .65m high. Space for two workers facing the trellis is 2.4m long. The remainder allows four bins to be carried with ample space for safe easy access to them and the raised platforms.
The advantages of this system are:
Can tow a bin trailer behind for ground pickers
A towing hitch enables a bin trailer to be towed behind the Trel-Pick for use by ground pickers. The left side and or back hand rails swing down to allow loading and unloading of bins.
Simple to operate
The Trel-Pick is simple to drive. The operator has control over engine throttle, hydrostatic ground speed, power steering and engine start and stop.
Four wheel steering Rear steering is controlled with a foot pedal which is used mainly for crab steering in Tatura trellis and Parmet rows on steep ground. It also allows for very sharp turning at the end of rows.
21hp engine with 25 litre boat fuel tank
Trel-Pick is powered by a 21hp V-twin petrol engine with oil alert and has a large air compressor able to run four air secateurs.
Both raised platforms easily telescopic up/down, and in/out, by hand in the row
Both raised platforms can be simply adjusted while still in the orchard. Height is varied in 100mm increments by raising or lowering the platform in the telescopic slides. Platform overhang can be altered by sliding inwards or outwards.
Standard with four picking crate & picking bag holders
Four crate & picking Bag holders are standard which hold a 22 lt or 36 lt crate. This holder fits over the hand rail.
