Tecnofruit

The Tecnofruit fruit harvesting machines from Frumaco currently represent, in terms of quality, productivity and manageability, the most modern and efficient fruit harvesting machines. Their unquestionable worth is proven by the numerous fruit farms, spread over 27 countries, that have adopted the Tecnofruit machines into their production process, achieving incredible results.

Tecnofruit machines were created for optimising harvesting processes, but are able to perform many other tasks, making them a true work hub. They can be used year-round: harvesting, green and winter pruning, manual thinning, installation and maintenance of hail nets and all other operations that require an agile and robust general-purpose tool.

According to the needs of the fruit farm, the Tecnofruit series machines can be equipped with a range of pertinent accessories. Close attention has been paid to environmental aspects, for example, they are equipped with TIER4 Diesel engines with low CO2 emissions and low fuel consumption. All this in order to offer the fruit farmer a modern and efficient means of responding to the productivity requirements of today’s orchards.

Automatic Bins Trailer

fruit pickingTecnoTrailer02

The automatic trailer completes the Tecnofruit harvesting system. There are five hydraulic functions: the transport of the empty fruit containers on the upper part of the trailer by means of chains, lifting the empty fruit containers, moving the full fruit containers to the lower part of the trailer, offloading the full containers to the ground and hydraulic steering. Controls provided on the driver’s side of the vehicle allow the quick replacement of a full container with an empty one. The trailer can carry up to 16 empty containers and up to 3 full containers. Moreover, the hydraulic steering of the rear wheels of the trailer allows it to follow exactly the trail of the fruit picking machine and have a relatively small turning circle.

The assisted changing of bins makes the job of the operator simple. It’s neither tiring or dangerous and a change over can be completed in 20 seconds.
To meet the needs of orchards with limited or uneven shaped farmland, with short rows and/or very narrow layouts (less than 3.20 m), the Frumaco Europe offers this trailer for the management of the empty bins, making the Tecnofruit CF 105 into a complete harvesting system.

With this trailer model, the empty bins can be transported on the upper part of the trailer (maximum 6 plus one on the machine’s revolving floor) while the full bins are placed directly on the ground by the Tecnofruit CF 105. The Simple Trailer is constructed so that it passes over the full bins deposited by the Tecnofruit CF 105.

To ensure maximum ease of handling the Simple Trailer is equipped with 4 pivoting wheels (the rear wheels can be locked with a pin). In addition, the upper tracks are extendable in order to change the length of the trailer and adapt it to the required number of empty bins.

Zero Point Avocado Kit

Tecno Avo

Efficiency, flexibility and sturdiness make the avocado kit the perfect solution to manage harvesting in modern systems.

There are many varieties of avocado, very different from each other in terms of shape and size. This is why Frumaco Europe has created a kit to harvest this type of fruit picking.

Yet another essential prerogative of this design is the ability to employ it in different types of installation settings. A flexible and modular system of front belts was developed and tested for this purpose, which adapt to different conditions in order to continually ensure high harvesting rates.
