PRODUCTS AND ACCESSORIES
Crop Shuttle Options
The Crop Shuttle comes with four different track options typically paired up by the capacity chosen. Our number one reason for tracks is reduced compaction. Under full load we are right around 10-15 psi. For comparison the average human male exerts around 8 psi, and a passenger car is over 30 psi.
With our patented hopper-raising design, we find that tracks offer the greatest stability giving you ease of mind out in the fields. Other benefits include reduced ruts in your fields due to the increased flotation. Soil compaction can also greatly impact your yields and type of tillage needed to prepare a proper seed bed.
The Standard 52″ Boom is our most common option that can reach trucks up to 12′ with ease. It also features a second folding section so you can lay your vegetables right down in the bottom of your trucks, or “back-fold” it allows you to load from either side. It boasts a large 52″ width that helps boost your efficiencies with record-breaking unload rates.
Sugar Beet And Silage Boom
Once again customers reached out to us to create a custom option, and we delivered. This boom is now a staggering 69″ wide and is ideal for our sugar beet and silage customers. Since silage has a greater repose angle, this boom has no problem unloading in a 14′ high truck and can be easily converted in 30 minutes to be set up for sugar beets. It also has the “back-fold” feature allowing you to load it from either side.
We offer many types of belted chain in our Crop Carts to be sure you get exactly the perfect fit for your farm. Whether you want a 32mm pitch, pillow cushion to be gentle on your cucumber crop or a heavy duty 5/8″ diameter, bare steel rod with four bands to strengthen your belt for the abuse of sugar beets and rocky soil, we got you covered!
Floor Options For Any Crop
For vegetables such as pickles and potatoes, we offer a rubber-belted floor and seal kit to cover up any exposed chains. Our powerful, positive chain-drive belted floor ensures you won’t have slippage giving you a fast unload rate that is smooth and gentle. Typically used in 3600 and 4000 models.
Our self-cleaning drag bed is key when the conditions are less than ideal. In combination with our slightly sloped walls, the Crop Shuttle is self-cleaning, making mud scraping minimal. This set up is ideal for conveying lime, sugar beets or even corn silage. Typically used in 4600 models.
Multi-Step Cleaning Table Options
Dirty Digger Cleaning Table
The Dirty Digger cleaning table is truly a minimal maintenance machine that is huge on performance. It boasts four cleaning and four clod rollers all with direct drive hydraulics. The fixed rollers feature a pressure controlled auto reversing function that will ensure you won’t have to worry about stones or sticks lodging into your rollers. Simply worry about loading the truck and not messing with settings.
Scotts Evolution Cleaning Table
For those who want to dial in every aspect of the cleaning table, like small potato growers, we offer a full line from Scotts. The Evolution Separator can be fitted with a four- or six-roller cleaning design. The rotation and height of the clod rollers can be adjusted hydraulically from the comfort of the cab with our easy-to-use Eaton controller.
Hydraulically Operated Side Door Option
A hydraulically controlled side door reduces the loading height required allowing you to gently start a pile of vegetables without damage. Whether you are harvesting table stock potatoes or cucumbers for pickling, the side door is a must have to reduce unwanted tare.
Scale Options To Pinpoint Your Exact Weight
Libra Cart Bluetooth Scale System
The Libra Cart Bluetooth Scale System has auto unload detection, and you can connect unlimited remotes, meaning you can actually track any Crop Shuttle in your field as long as you are within range.
You are also able to track fields, yields, trucking destinations and switch through multiple commodities giving you valuable data year after year.
The GT 400 allows you to measure crop yields and is an easy way to ensure your load weights are road legal. You can store your load weights and even send that data to a DDL or printer right in your cab.
Save time by weighing in the field vs hauling to a platform scale!
Planting Options – Self-Contained Seed Loader
The self-contained Seed Loader allows you to use your Crop Shuttle to fill your planters. The unique patented design allows you to hold an industry leading 600-750 bags of seed. The control platform is conveniently located allowing you to have unmatched visibility of the entire hopper, incline conveyor and the truck being unloaded.
The transfer table is an insert that you will install if you have a cleaning table on your Crop Shuttle and you want to use it as a planter filler. This allows you to remove the cleaning table and use 32mm rubber rod belted chain which is much gentler on your seed.
The Shurco 4500 automatic roll tarp with a Smart 3 remote control system is a must have. Whether you are preparing for the quick unexpected rain showers or trying to temperature control your crop, tarping your load is as easy as a push of the button.
Our spreader attachment allows you to get more from your investment! The spreader can be left on during regular harvest meaning you can pre-harvest beets in the morning and spread lime ash in the afternoon with no time to switch over.
Silage Rake & Boom Extensions
This powered spinner helps forage flow through our Crop Shuttle without damaging product bridging. It also allows the product to come out smooth to reduce crop loss. The extended boom sides bolt onto the existing tin work making switch out from sugar beets to corn silage a breeze!
