The Tecnofruit fruit harvesting machines from Frumaco currently represent, in terms of quality, productivity and manageability, the most modern and efficient fruit picker 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.

The harvest labour costs can be reduced by a half. A lower number of workers during the harvest, working to a higher performance level compared to traditional ways of picking and reduction of the number of rejects, this together with low running costs allows for a very short amortisation period.
Apple picking or any type of fruit picking from the tree at one time (making for a uniform quality), the direct transport of the fruit to the fruit bins, the fact that the workers will be less tired during the harvest, are just some of the points contributing to a higher performance.
Harvesting using the Tecnofruit machines ensures a supreme volume of fruit in comparison with using other methods.

· It is more attractive for seasonal labour of all ages because it makes the job easier by doing away with ladders and picking baskets.
· It enables orchard operators to increase their bottom line through greater productivity and efficiencies in harvesting, pruning, tree training and thinning.

Automatic Bins Trailer
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.
