There are several benefits regarding our harvester, we can summarize them like this:

Comfort. Manual labor is very physically demanding. Harvester SMART was designed specifically to be comfortable and easy to use.

Time saving. This is the main aspect on which the production of our machines is based on. In fact, one simple use, eliminates a series of operations usually carried out manually. Harvester SMART drastically reduces time and optimizes the hazelnut harvesting.

Versatility. The ability to adapt to all kinds of soil. This allows great operative capacity, able to meet everyone’s needs.

Easy and comfortable to use, for a procedure that would take much longer if carried out manually. This is exactly the main goal of the harvesting machine. Eliminating all manual procedure. The only manual procedure that is needed is to slightly move the nuts from the tree’s stump, to allow the collecting of all nuts without hitting the tree.

The machine can be perfectly attached to tractors with reversible drive or front lift with PTO (on tractors with front lift but no PTO it is possible to mount a hydraulic kit for the functioning of the harvester).

In the collected product there might be foreign objects with equal size to the hazelnuts such as rocks, lumps of soil, pieces of leaves that can be removed in conjunction with the pneumatic separator for cleaning and sorting of the hazelnuts.

Buongiorno, vi chiedo alcune informazioni per la smart: il sistema di raccolta avviene con aspirazione o con pettine? ne producete anche un modello leggero da utilizzare su terreno molto soffice, cortesemente si può avere un spaccato della macchina? La ringrazio e porgo cordiali saluti Paolo Sabato.
