For mango growers, Hydralada lifts the game
Improved fruit quality
Featuring two 200 litre solution tanks and a pump that delivers mango wash through sprayers mounted in the mango picking bag, the Hydralada harvesting system continuously washes mango sap from the fruit – eliminating blemishes and improving fruit quality.
Total control for the grower
Hydralada gives the grower the ability to monitor both quantity and quality of fruit per picker – something not possible with other types of harvest aids. Our machines are proven to be the most efficient way to harvest mangoes.
Versatile integrated forklift
With a fully-integrated forklift, drivers can shift full bins of fruit without waiting for the tractor, keeping the bin close to the mangoes being harvested.
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 and 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.
On board mango wash
Keeping the fruit pristine
Hydralada’s unique mango wash system cleans the mangoes as they pass through the picking bag, ensuring the fruit arrives at the packhouse in pristine condition. A large capacity 400-litre tank delivers solution via sprinklers into the picking bag keeping the mangoes clean.
Hydrafork bin shifter
Shifting mango bins just got easier
The Hydralada operator can shift a full bin of mangoes along the row without having to rely on a tractor mounted forklift. This means they can keep a bin nearby, saving valuable time and effort.
Popular lifting platform options
Handle mud and slopes
Mounted on an oscillating beam, Hydralada’s rubber track drive option handles wet and rough ground conditions with ease – offering extra traction and stability for mango growers.
Hand Operated Controls
Maximum standing room
Two ergonomically designed tiller levers located in the front of the platform drive the wheels of the Hydralada. This option gives the operator more free-standing room than the standard three-pedal foot control.
Four high torque drive motors power four wheels mounted on an oscillating beam. This increases traction and acts like suspension, delivering a smoother ride.
Great for working in high temperatures
The Hydraulic Oil Cooler includes a radiator and fan, decreasing the oil temperature of the hydraulic oil when the machine is working in high ambient temperatures. Ideal if a hydraulic chainsaws is being powered from the Hydralada machine.
Hydrafork Bin Shifter
No tractor required
The Hydralada operator can shift a full bin of fruit along the row without having to rely on a tractor mounted forklift. This means they can keep a bin nearby, saving valuable time and trouble.
More wheels on the ground
This option offers more stability than the standard single castor rear wheel. The Twin Castor option is often included with Tandem Four Wheel Drive making for a truly versatile machine when operating on sloping property.
