Harvesting sugarcane on hillside plantations

Bronze
2012

This sugarcane harvester was designed especially for operation on hillside plantations. Harvesting sugarcane on hillsides is typically performed by hand with a machete. The development of a machine harvester offers more humane working conditions and increased productivity. Its adjustable tilting platform and steering column offer the best ergonomic position in any terrain. The operator can drive the harvester while riding or walking behind it.
