SP96 Harvesting Machine

High performance, low efforts

The SP96 Harvesting Machine is a machine designed for:




– storage of nursery plants




-Performance on any type of soil, particularly hard / heavy / clayey.


Suitable for nursery from:

300,000 fruit trees, ornamental and rooted cuttings, with a daily yield of over 20,000 plants harvested and sorted.

Work on root systems from 30 to 50 cm and above.

Technical features

Structure and functioning

 The SP96 Harvesting Machine is a towed machine, consisting of a fixed frame (1), equipped with a third adjustable point (2) for coupling to the tractor. There is a mobile frame (3) which, when transported, allows the machine to be closed by 90 °, reducing its overall dimensions.

The Harvesting Machine SP96 extracts the plant (4) thanks to the digging knife (5), which penetrates deep into the soil, below the root system, up to 50 cm.

Simultaneously, the conveyor belt (6) conveys the stem of the plant towards the first shaker (7).



The first shaker (8), alternately oscillating, performs a first skimming of the ground, from the roots of the plant.

Immediately afterwards, the second shaker (9) completes the skimming work, bringing to light the root system of the plant.

The conveyor belt (10) keeps the plants in position, leading them up to the operator (11) who collects them for sorting.

In line, the Harvesting machine SP96 mounts a platform (12) where the operators are placed, which perform the sorting of the plants.

The machine mounts two pallet magazine forks (13), which are used as needed.

The machine is equipped with autonomous hydraulic / electric system:

14) oil tank

15) oil cooling system

16) tandem pump group that take the motion thanks to the gearbox connected to the tractor.

Tandem pumps feed the hydraulic motors of shakers, tapes and hydraulic cylinders.

17) hydraulic motors, which move the conveyor belt, the first and the second shaker.

18) speed regulators of the conveyor belt, of the first and of the second shaker.

The three hydraulic cylinders are managed with the control console (19).

Steering cylinder (20) corrects, and keeps the machine running while working.

Lift cylinder (21), raises and lowers the mobile frame (22) during work and lifts it during movements.

Excavation drill cylinder (23), adjusts the working depth of the digging knife.

The two stabilizing wheels are adjustable in height and width.

The machine could be, upon request, fitted  with a directional knife, equipped with a rudder (31) which, penetrating into the ground (the depth is adjustable), helps to keep it underway during the work phase.

Options list

Pallet basket

To better manage the collection of plants on the platform, pallets are available (27) which, thanks to their high shoulders, safely store many plants.

27) Dimensions:

1070x1530x1500, weight 40 Kg

Load / unload kit

To facilitate the loading and unloading of the pallet baskets (28), a kit consisting of a rotating carousel (29) is available, which allows the pallet baskets to be loaded and then directed onto the up/down rail (30)

 29) Revolving carousel dimensions:

1160x1500x240, weight 95 Kg

30) Revolving carousel dimensions:

1160x1600x340, weight 50 Kg

Collection facilitator kit

To facilitate the sorting of the plants, a collection facilitator kit (32) is available that allows to reduce the personnel on board. The kit takes the synchronized movement from the hydraulic motors of the 2 conveyor belts. Its particular structure conveys the plants in front of the operator, giving him time to check for any differences in height, and then separate them.

1400x1400x730 weight 70 Kg


32) Dimensioni:

1400x1400x730 peso 70 Kg

Tall plants driving

If the need arises to extract tall plants, a tall plant guide (33) is available which, once positioned, avoids folding them.
