Blueline’s self-propelled orchard platforms offer labor-saving versatility for today’s orchards. Fully self-powered with 4-cylinder diesel engines and 4WD, the Blueline orchard platform is designed for modern orchards at only 50” wide with a 67" wheelbase. The platform has an adjustable width from 3.6 to 10 feet and adjustable height from 3.5 to 6 feet. Platforms vary in size from 2 to 4 persons.
The OP25D model, powered by a Kubota diesel engine, includes an advanced auto steering feature with ground speed rate meter and hydrostatic transition -with two speed gearbox- which gives it the ability to crawl through the orchard or travel from field to field. The self-steering features saves on labor expense by eliminating dedicated driver requirements.
In order to enhance the efficiency of crews working aboard the OP25D Blueline has included hydraulic cylinders for moving the platforms up and down. The front and rear platforms can be moved independently of each other for the optimal working height with the simple touch of a switch.
Blueline’s self-steering platforms include manual drive controls for transportation or end-of-row positioning. Also included are various kill switches for additional safety.
