Shipping A Mechanical Tree Shaker

Mechanical Tree Shaker Transport Services

The agriculture industry heavily relies on mechanical tree shakers to assist with harvesting fruits. A mechanical tree shaker is a piece of farm machinery that gently shakes fruit trees to help the fruit fall into a collection container. The shaker head has a mechanical arm that grabs the tree trunk and generates the necessary shaking motion for harvesting fruits.

As these machines are fragile and challenging to handle, farmers often prefer to have their mechanical tree shakers shipped by experts to avoid any damage. The process involves proper labeling, documentation, and secure packaging to protect the delicate components of the machinery. Some popular models of mechanical tree shakers include those made by John Deere.

The cost of shipping a mechanical tree shaker will vary widely because many things influence the overall cost. However, there is no single cost for shipping such a piece of equipment.

You will have a different shipping experience depending on the type of equipment a shipping company has. The company you hire must be adequately equipped to load, transport, and offload your heavy equipment.

Preparing Your Mechanical Tree Shaker for Shipping

  • Inspect and Repair: Check the tires and mechanical components of the tree shaker for faults and repair any issues. Ensuring these parts are in good condition prevents delays or damage during conveyance.
  • Secure Loose Parts: Fasten all loose parts securely to prevent damage during freight. This step is crucial for safety, as unsecured parts can lead to accidents or loss during transport.
  • Drain Fluids: Remove all operational fluids from the tree shaker to comply with haulage regulations and prevent spillage. Properly draining fluids minimizes environmental risks and meets carrier requirements.
  • Document Condition: Photograph the tree shaker's condition before loading onto the truck. These records serve as evidence in case of disputes regarding damage incurred during shipping.
  • Choose the Right Carrier: Select a freight carrier experienced in heavy machinery haulage. An experienced carrier ensures the safe and efficient transport of your mechanical tree shaker, minimizing risks of damage or accidents.
  • Prepare for Unload: Arrange the necessary equipment and personnel to unload the tree shaker upon arrival. Proper preparation for unloading ensures a smooth transition off the truck, reducing the risk of damage to the machine or injury to workers.
