Crop-specific shaker heads and shake patterns

Utilizing decades of field experience Orchard-Rite designs and builds innovative shaker heads with your success in mind.

Orchard-Rite has spent the past 28 years improving shake patterns and adding customization so you can switch between patterns quickly during harvest. Each nut variety requires different osculating acceleration patterns to release them from the tree, while the tree itself can only withstand so much energy transfer before becoming damaged. Hydraulic systems designed in-house address this concern, giving you complete control, maximal harvest, and no crop damage.

Able to be equipped on both shaker models, this head can be used on a variety of trees and offers bolt on sling studs and easy crop-specific shake patterns. This head is typically used on our Bullet® to harvest all types of almonds and high density walnut and pecan plantings. With reinforced case, pins, and cylinders, it can endure the longest harvest.

Available for the Orchard-Rite® Monoboom™, this head was designed to be powerful enough to shake even the toughest nut off the tree. It is typically used in walnuts and pecans and is capable of doing both scaffold and trunk shaking. Our engineers crafted this head with an expanded case to offer a wider swing radius, clearing larger trees faster.

Tree shaker specifications

Bullet®

Our highly efficient Bullet® is rugged and compact, yet powerful. We designed this shaker for down-the-row driving from tree to tree, with no need for backing up and with reduced soil compaction. It features heavy-duty energy wheel bearings, a 50-degree shaker head roll, and is equipped with lights for nighttime harvesting.

Monoboom™

Our industry standard Monoboom™ is designed with a boom anchor assembly, providing maximum resistance to breakage. With a long boom reach, this machine can scaffold and trunk shake. We have also designed the Monoboom™ to be compatible with the Side Shooter® for down-the-row harvesting as an optional accessory.

Tree Shaker Innovations

Orchard-Rite introduced our first tree shaker model in 1990 and since then we have been building upon the innovative design to bring you maximum comfort and speed during harvest. These improved designs also create more efficient servicing to minimize down time.

AccuShake™

Developed with the operator in mind, the AccuShake™ system allows for a consistent shake throughout the orchard while maximizing yield. Prior to AccuShake™, operators were required to manually shake each tree using an “internal clock”. A talented operator could keep the timing somewhat consistent while also fluctuating the throttle pedal, increasing and decreasing the speed of the shake motor. Unfortunately, these operators are hard to find. Orchard-Rite® designed the AccuShake™ program to give growers the ability to toggle between preset shaking profiles. This automatically varies shake time and engine RPM, providing a more uniform shake and maximum removal.

WetHead®

Originated by Orchard-Rite®, the Wet Head® system was designed to keep trees safe and extend the life of the pads and slings. By injecting a water and silicone solution between the long and short slings, the rubber easily glides over the surface, keeping friction and heat to a minimum. This free movement also allows for safer contact with trees, reducing the risk of barking.

HydraShake™

The HydraShake™ system by Orchard-Rite® is one of the first innovations created to make harvest season simpler and more efficient. With the first prototype, shake speed and acceleration were only available at the maximum output of the engine, which was too violent for younger trees. As technology has progressed, Orchard-Rite® has been able to precisely control the aggressiveness of the shake pattern, tailoring the shake for each size and variety of tree. HydraShake™ has given operators complete control of the shaking process, something that is unmatched by the competition.

Side Shooter®

The Side Shooter® is the precursor to the Orchard-Rite Bullet®. While it offers similarities to the Bullet®, a Monoboom™ shaker equipped with a Side-Shooter® attachment, allows for a much higher reach into the canopy. The tilt section is interchangeable, allowing growers the benefit of a down-the-row shaker while still being able to adjust back to a standard front-facing Monoboom™ when needed. This offers flexibility and versatility for growers with both large and small trees. When farmers need to harvest down-the-row, and need the extended reach of a Monoboom™, we recommend using the Side Shooter® attachment.
