Last week saw the delivery of a new project to the apple growing region of Orange in NSW.
Appledale Processors took delivery of an orchard hopper and truck loading elevator. The machinery is powered by a 16kVA stand-alone generator so it can be used anywhere in the orchard.
The hopper is loaded from the harvester, then towed to a designated filling area where the elevator is in place. The hopper is backed up to the elevator and the load transferred to transport for processing. It is all about efficiencies in the orchard!!
