Equipment You Need for Orchard Management

We all know good orchard management starts with your tools, but what about your equipment?

Big ticket items may not seem “essential” but when dealing with labour shortages and harvest challenges, they’re actually a must.

And just like with your orchard tools, you want to choose the best possible orchard equipment and machinery available. Look for products that are high quality and durable, from respected manufacturers like Galaxy Group.

Our equipment is built to make orchard management easier, faster, and more cost-effective in the long-term. Everything orchard equipment should be.

Here are the four pieces of orchard equipment you should invest in for a healthy harvest year on year.

The Tecnofruit can be used year-round for harvesting, green and winter pruning, thinning, installation and maintenance, and any other task where varied heights and easy storage is required.
