  1. Safe and stable operation on all terrain

    All Hydralada models are designed to drive on unprepared terrain and slopes of up to 20 degrees at full elevation. Each machine is stability tested and given a specific safe working angle.

  2. Foot control for hands free operation

    Efficiency is maximised with the ability to drive the machine hands free at full height. The operator can pick fruit, prune and tree train on the move, significantly increasing productivity.

  3. Unique picking bag design

    The Hydralada picking bag is divided into three compartments to optimize fruit handling. The apples pass gently through each compartment without bruising and are unloaded into a field bin.
