Transtak® 1500L Fruit Bin Carrier and Trailer

Widely used throughout the Horticultural Industry in New Zealand, working with Apples, Kiwifruit, Avocados, Cherries, Stone Fruit and more, Transtak’s 1500L Trailer is excellent at moving bins of fruit efficiently from the Orchard to the Packhouse, shifting over 100 bins/day.

Front or rear mounted, the 1500L Trailer can transport from within rows direct to the unloading area, or be used in combination with Transtak’s 500BF Tractor Forks, which cart from within rows to headlands, leaving the 1500L to transport 3 full bins at a time from headlands and return with empty bins. This frees up tractors to spend more time in the orchard looking after the picking teams.

The 1500L also works well with the Transtak 3500 Trailer, carting bins from rows to headlands, to be stacked and moved away with the Transtak 3500 in lots of 6 full bins. Using these trailers together ensures a constant flow of empty and full bins meaning fruit is shifted much faster and more efficiently.
