Reach new heights in work safety and picking rates
Safe and stable on any surface
Renowned for reliability and proven for safety, all Hydralada models are designed to drive at full elevation on unprepared terrain and slopes of up to 20 degrees.
Foot control for hands-free operation
The ability to drive the machine at full height, hands-free is just one of the features that makes a Hydralada so efficient. The operator can pick cherries, prune and tree train on the move, significantly increasing productivity.
Hydraulic power pruners
Our hydraulic power pruners make short work of hard to prune cherry wood, increasing the pruning rate and removing the strain.
Hands-free picking and pruning
With Hydralada lifting platforms it’s all about the fancy footwork. Housed within the floor of the platform, a centre pedal operates the lift. The two outside pedals operate the respective drive wheels. It’s a quick and easy drive system that leaves the operators hands free to work the tree.
Independent Wheel Drive
Manoeuvrable with very tight turning circle
Drive one wheel forward and the opposite wheel reverse and it will turn on a dime. This makes it extremely nimble and sets Hydralada apart from other types of elevating work platorms.
Low Tail Profile
The low tail swings underneath the branches
Sleek round bonnets and low chassis design makes the Hydralada machine very nimble. It easily manoeuvres in and among cherry trees without damaging branches or fruit.
Popular lifting platform options
Picking Crate Magazine
Saving time by the bucketload
The Picking Crate Magazine attaches to the front of the platform and can handle up to five full buckets of harvested cherries. A frame-mounted at the rear of the platform stores multiple empty buckets so the operator can continue picking fruit without having to enter and exit the cage.
Auxiliary Oil Outlets
Add power to your pruning
The safe and easy way to prune, hydraulic couplings in the Hydralada platform means you can connect tools to make the job even more efficient. A popular option for cherry growers and pruning contractors, our hydraulic pruners help remove the risk of repetitive strain injury.
Free Wheeling Hubs
Tow wherever you go
Thanks to the quick-release wheel hubs fitted to the wheels, the Hydralada drive is easily disengaged and the machine towed from one orchard to another behind your ute.
Capability to handle all terrain
Four driving wheels mounted on an oscillating beam. Increases traction and stability for orchards on sloping ground
