“Truck Farming” Company Offers Unique Line Of Equipment
Sprayers run the gamut with pull-type, 3-pt. hitch and skid sprayers for use with all size tractors, ATV’s and utility vehicles. Sizes include 15-gal. garden tractor pull types, 25-gal. ATV mounts, 60-gal. pull types and skids for ATV’s and UTV’s, and 1,000-gal. trailing sprayers. A wide array of 3-pt. hitch sprayers offers tanks from 40 to 400 gal. Most booms are available with either manual or hydraulic fold.
High-pressure sprayers and shielded boom sprayers are also available. CropCare configures high-pressure sprayers in a variety of sizes from 55-gal., 3-pt. units to 750-gal. trailing sprayers. The innovative 25-ft., single-sided booms are adjustable from 24 to 84-in. heights. Booms are fully hydraulic with hydraulic fold and leveling in addition to height adjustments.
Shielded boom sprayers can be 3-pt. mounted with 55-gal. or 110-gal. tanks. The shielded booms are height and width adjustable. They have clear shields of Lexan plastic for maximum drift protection between the rows or over the rows. The sprayers can be equipped with multiple pump options.
The picking cart is a battery-powered 3-wheeler that leaves hands free for planting, maintenance or harvest. It offers up to 6 hrs. of continuous run time. Dual, high-torque gear motors operate at either 22 ft./min. or 44 ft./min for low density or high-density work. The cart can be adjusted from 20 to 30-in. heights with a width of 36 to 66 in.
The rear produce tray holds up to 5 strawberry flats, while the front picking tray tilts to the operator, adjusts in height and rotates in 45-degree increments. The cart can be towed to the site by a single ATV, tractor, truck or by hand.
The plastic mulch lifter has a center coulter that splits plastic in two. Shovels help lift the edges of the plastic. The dual reels lift plastic, dumping dirt, vines and trash back into the field. Plastic is neatly rolled for recycling or disposal. The rear mount operator platform offers full visibility of the operation with thumb control of tension on the plastic being rolled. Collapsible reels allow quick and easy removal of plastic rolls. Double coulters are available for use with multiple row beds.
