JJ Broch Harvester/Cutter ARCO-S
The JJ Broch harvester/cutters lift the garlic from the soil, remove the soil, cut the leaves and place the garlic bulbs into a bulka-bag or bin. The fully automated harvesting system can be operated by one person.
HYDRAULIC DRIVE: All of the harvester's mechanisms are driven by hydraulic motors powered by the tractor's PTO.
LEAF ALIGNMENT GUIDES: Two front guides lift any fallen leaves and align the garlic plants to make picking and collection along the conveyor belts easier.
FRONT PULLING UP SHARE: A share is used to cut the radicular system of the garlic and then lifts it gently to be collected by the belt system. The position and depth of the blade can be adjusted hydraulically.
CONVEYOR AND CLEANING BELTS: The soil is removed using a vibration system along the conveyor belts driven by hydraulic motors.
CUTTING DISK: A second set of belts levels off the bulbs and a high speed toothed disk cuts the leaves at an adjustable height, removing the leaf and placing the bulb on the packing belt.
PACKING BELT: A rodded belt transports the bulbs of garlic to the bin or bulka-bag, and allows further cleaning and grading of non-commercial bulbs manually.
Available in 1 and 2 row versions. There is the option to unload into a bin instead of a bulka-bag. There are two options with the bin system: the bin can be placed on the ground next the machine or can be placed metres away via a hydraulic telescopic system. Manufactured in Spain.
