Aronia harvester ARONIC

ARONIC is a harvesting machine designed to collect aronia berries, also known as chokeberries, and it is a modified version of our versatile product – the half-row berry bush harvester JAREK5. Aronia harvesting machine ARONIC  is equipped with one shaker with increased vibration energy and changed slides for shrubs. Because of the higher yield of chokeberry in relation to currant, chokeberry harvesting capacity is smaller and amounts 0.08 – 0.2 ha / h. The collection of aronia fruits lasts longer and the accuracy of the collection depends mainly on the size of bushes and the maintenance of the plantation. It is advised to keep the bushes relatively small, shrub optimal height is 1.0 – 1.8 m. The accuracy of the collection reaches 98% and the amount of impurities and damaged fruit does not exceed 1%.

  • The aronia harvesting machine ARONIC is characterized by the high-quality finish and simple modular design. This allows adjusting the structure according to the customer needs and a change in the configuration at a later date. For the drive, it’s advised to use the tractor with low operating speeds. The drive of workgroups is fully hydraulic. Tractor’s PTO drives the harvester through the gearbox on the hydraulic pump.
  • Possible configurations, methods of collection of fruit and the control ways are the same as in the standard currant harvester JAREK 5. Please contact us through the contact form on the left to find out more about possible configurations.
