Picking Cart Lets You Lay Down On The Job
The battery-powered crop-picking cart from CropCare makes field work quicker and more productive. Two, high torque, planetary gear motors keep the cart moving even in rough conditions.
A 12-volt, deep cycle battery with its own 110-volt automatic charger provides power. The 27 series battery offers a 6 hr continuous run time (16 hours picking time) with ground speeds up to 18ft/min.     As of Dec 2011 the price is $3195, but that could go up, so please check our website or call for actual pricing. It offers ground speeds of up to 18 ft./min.
The picking platform is equipped with foot pedal control for forward and reverse. Durable and easy to clean, vinyl-covered, foam pads adjust to any height picker. A vinyl canopy protects both the crop and the operator from sun or rain.
A high capacity storage tray mounts ahead of the operator for setting out plants or picking produce. A shelf beneath the canopy provides shaded storage for produce or supplies. Quick release pins and cushioned handles make it easy to raise the cart from 20 to 30 in. above the ground to match crop height. Wheelbase can be adjusted from 36 to 66 in. by moving the non-drive wheel in or out on the rear axle.
The lightweight cart can easily be pulled into position by hand. Multiple carts can be towed to the field with a single ATV, tractor or truck.
