Aerial platform under and fruit protection system.

Aerial platform under and fruit protection system.

You have or will invest in harvest protection over your orchard. There are all kinds of different canopies with, for example, hail nets, insect nets, bird nets and foils. Do you always need an aerial platform when you invest in a fruit canopy? It is not always necessary to purchase an aerial platform, in fact not every fruit canopy requires an aerial platform.

Hail net or foil canopies (also called rain canopies) with a solid construction often have a height from 4.0m to 5.5m. To work safely at height, an aerial work platform is then really necessary. Opening and closing the hail nets or foils saves a lot of time with an aerial platform. Only which boom lift is best to use and where can you buy one? In this article, we describe just that.

Agri-Com

Agri-Com Fruitteelt machines has been supplying machines for fruit growing since 1996. Agri-Com has several boom lifts (also called work platforms) in its product range. Installation canopy companies such as FruitSecurity Holland and Fruit Support Europe also use these boom lifts. Agri-Com is one of the best-known boom lift manufacturers for fruit cultivation. Below are 3 types of working platforms that can be used to open and close hail nets and rain covers.

Work platform Onyx

The Onyx is a self-propelled (and self-steering) aerial platform that can be put to good use when opening and closing fruit canopies. Hydraulically, the Onyx can be adjusted in height and even width. When opening and closing fruit canopies, a scissor construction is easy to go even higher. Read more here.

Work platform Orion

The Orion is a self-propelled (and self-steering) aerial platform that can be put to good use when opening and closing hail nets and rain covers. Hydraulically, the Orion can be adjusted in height. The walking platforms on the AWP are also extendable. This is very convenient when rolling up fruit canopies. The Orion boom lift is fitted with a scissor mechanism as standard. Read more here.

Working platform Titan

The Titan is an electric, self-propelled (and self-steering) boom lift that can be used to good effect when opening and closing fruit canopies. In height and width, the Titan boom lift is adjustable. The advantage of the Titan boom lift is that there are no diesel costs, no noise and no vibration. Read more here.

Where else?

Besides Agri-Com Fruitteelt machines, you can buy aerial platforms for hail net and foil canopies from more places. H&B Techniek from Boven-Leeuwen, for example, has the Genius boom lift, which was developed with and for fruit growers. Adjustable in height and width and therefore multifunctional in a fruit company. Frutec B.V. and Van der Linden Fruitteelt Machines also supply aerial platforms for opening and closing canopies.

Do you need an aerial work platform for a short period and is it unnecessary to invest in one? At Agri-Com, FruitSecurity Holland and Fruit Support Europe, it is also possible to rent aerial work platforms.

Important when choosing an aerial work platform is the maximum height, the adjustable walking platforms and the turning radius. So pay close attention to this when purchasing! Also, several people should be able to move easily on the platform. Opening and closing hail nets and rain covers is often done with several people on one work platform.
