AgriNomix's new product eases worker fatigue.
July 12, 2011
Need some help loading those high hanging basket systems? AgriNomix's Mechanized Basket Elevator alleviates some of the physical stress and danger in loading hanging basket conveyors, lifting baskets from the lower position to the upper position. Crews can work more efficiently.
Capacity for the basket elevator is 500 to 1,300 baskets per hour, but custom heights can be ordered.
AgriNomix also displayed the Trike Horticulture Forklift, which is different because of its tires. Widely spaced front wheels and closley spaced rear wheels keep rutting to a minimum, and will drive over even difficult terrain smoothly without sinking. A programmable hands-off pot spacing option adds to the machine's features. Load capacity is 1,000 kg. with a Kubota 3-cylinder diesel engine.
