SFM Mechanical Tree Shaker consists of a PTO driven shaker assembly mounted on the tractor’s 3 point linkage and a wire rope coupled to a reinforced nylon sling looped around the lower part of the tree ensuring that the tree and roots are not damaged.
SFM’s Hydraulic Tree Shaker is a one-person operated machine which is mounted on the tractor’s 3-point linkage with the hydraulic drive taken from the power take-off shaft. The controls, which can be either cable or electrically operated, are located in the tractor cab within easy reach of the operator to allow quick and efficient operation.
The jaws of the shaker open more than 180 degrees allowing the operator to drive in a straight line through the rows of trees. The shaker arm pivots through 90 degrees making this an ideal machine for all row widths. This tree shaker is suitable for all types of tree.
The efficient shaking action of the Hydraulic Tree Shaker and ease of use enables 200 or more trees to be shaken per hour.
