Rapid SL4 is a self-propelled machine for the harvest of 4 rows vegetables. It is equipped with a Kubota 37KW/50HP diesel engine, with automatic pilot and with iron caterpillar tracks, which allow a regular forward movement on any kind of soil (wet soil, soil with uneven surface). Rapid SL can harvest on already mulched soil, on bare soil, on beds or on flat ground.
It can be equipped according to the customer's requirements. The harvesting elements are independent from each other and they are placed in the front of the machine. Each harvesting element is equipped with conveyor belts and with a serrated disc. An electronic sensor placed near the cutting disc controls the cutting height. A belt transports vegetables such as salads to a working area. At this working area, it is possible to clean, sort and pack the vegetables. Last the vegetables can be packed in to boxes and placed on a pallet afterwards.
Rapid SL allows to reduce the costs for the workforce and to improve the working conditions and the working organization. We suggest this kind of harvesting system to farmers who work for the fresh market and who want to clean the product such as lettuce and iceberg directly on the field. Thanks to the compact dimensions of the Hortech Rapid SL harvester, it is possible to harvest vegetables with a minimum row distance of 25 cm.
Possibility to work with 4 people on each side.
