Handling equipment - Receiving technology | PS 511

Gentle and quick remove from stock, ergonomical and maneuverable

The potato scooper, type PS 511, picks up the crop from the storage floor with high performance and transfers it to the following conveyors. The Scooper with its range of 11 m and a belt width of 50 cm convinces with its high throughput rate. Infinitely height adjustment at the discharge side for maximum gentle crop handling. The infinitely conveyor speed adjustment allows an optimum adoption to the various conditions. Thanks to the hydraulic single-wheel drive, the machine is very manoeuvrable and powerful, enabling high productivity as well as comfortable, fast and precise moving of the machine. The infinitely variable adaptation of the range makes it possible to shift the position of the Scooper without having to move the storage line.
