The HH- Harvesters Model HH2002C Jenquip 2002


It will be

produced in three models - CT towed with hydraulic supply coming from a small tractor - CTP towed but with it's own hydraulic power pack - CSP self propelled and powered.

Click here to see a video of the HH2202CTP at work! Wheel track is 1500mm to suit horticultural crops. Chassis height is 350mm although some crops (ie Lavender) can be cut higher than this. It has infeed features (ie fingers) to suit individual crops feeding the crop to a bandsaw. It is available with conveyor widths from 550mm to 1200mm. The conveyor feeds the product into vegetable bins or large bags (fadges). There is room on the machine for one or two people packing product etc. We are just completing trials on the CT/CTP models and welcome your inquires with any special requirements. We will endeavour to quote your as soon as possible. We will be developing other options for the harvesters including Wheel Fingers. These are simple bolt on devices which guide the crop past the tractor wheels. These will be required where row spacing is close or there is very heavy growth Spray fingers . Separate and shield the crop from weeds so they can be sprayed. Removable/ adjustable sickle bar cutting head

Herb Harvester

http://www.jenquip.co.nz/herbharvesteHH.htm

The herb harvester has been developed specially for harvesting herbs for oil production. Although designed initially for Lavender, the harvester and options available for it, are capable of harvesting a wide range of crops. Operating Principles The fingers and tines lift and guide the flower heads to the cutter bar which can be set to a wide range of heights. The flower heads are cut at an optimum length. Using the pneumatic vacuum cleaner principle, the flower heads are sucked/blown up ducting into fadges mounted at the rear of the harvester. Raising the3 point linkage above operating heights will lift the cutter/ pickup head allowing easy turns at head lands. For moving through gateways and long distance travel the pick up head location arm is disconnected from the tractor, tubes disconnected and the head is rotated 180 to behind the implement, and lowered onto the tray. The harvester can safely be stored in this condition. Features Simple operation. Can be operated by 35 to 50 HP tractors with standard PTO output and 3 point linkage. No electrics other hydraulics are required. Perform a quality harvest, for oil production purposes. Versatile for different crop requirements. Cuts height is variable from 250mm up to 700mm. The fingers can be adjusted for row width from mm to mm. Capable of pruning operations with horizontal and up to 45 head angle. Being able to prune as well as harvest gives better machine utilisation Place the crop into bags, trailers or independent vehicles alongside. Easy use fadges holders, full fadge hooks and spare fadge tray. Easy use fadge holders make it easy to fit empty fadges and remove full ones. hooks are fitted to the fadge holders so full fadges can be held outboard of the fadge holders. This allows up to 4 full fadges to be transported at once. This should allow the harvester to process full rows and not have to stop part way along. A tray is provided to neatly store spare fadges. The fadge holders are removable allowing the tray area to be used for other purposes. Good ergonomics with mid mounted cutting heads. The operator can easily see what is happening at the cutting head and can steer the tractor to ensure it is aligned with the crops rows. Relatively low cost compared to self propelled harvesters. You are also getting a pruning and harvesting machine. If you wish to remove the side arm (4 bolts) you also have a versatile transport tray. Options Wheel Fingers. These are simple bolt on devices which guide the crop past the tractor wheels. These will be required where row spacing is close or there is very heavy growth. Low cutting head. For crops cut below 250mm high. Special Requirements For those Farmers who have a special requirement we can build the equipment for you Some options are: Portable guided trimmers. These will cut the crop in the same way each time ( great for cooking herbs )
