OB 80 R (Ride-on)

With these harvesting devices, a significant increase in productivity can be achieved in the short juice fruit harvesting season, while at the same time increasing profitability.

Fruit picking machine or fruit collecting machine OB 80 R (Ride-on)

The OB 80 R is a self-driving picking machine for individual farms, communes, contractors, agricultural machinery cooperatives, and associations.

A device with 18 PS and 80 cm work width (with additional plantation rotor correspondingly more). It is equipped with a 230 l bunker, the overloading height of which is 2.50 m. This device is available with all-wheel drive.

The fruit picking machine or fruit collecting machine consists of a side-oriented 18 PS 4-stroke motor. This drive, on the one side, a variable pump for the drive and, on the other side, the picking and cleaning roller using 2 V-belts. The machine is guided at the front by a support / steering wheel, which can be adjusted mechanically in height.

A particularly smooth-running, fully hydraulic steering system ensures maximum comfort during operation and enables fatigue-free harvesting. During operation, the fruits are thrown along the throwing hood by rubber lamellae of the picking roller and thus conveyed upwards. They then fly over the sieve grating into the bunker.

Details on the OB 80 R


  • fruit intake possible even on slopes
  • standard hydraulic differential lock
  • very manoeuvrable and clearly arranged, due to short, compact design
  • usable in orchards and plantations
  • very good cleaning of the fruit from leaves and grass
  • ergonomic sitting position due to inclined seat with 100% view of the fruit bunker and picking unit
  • fully hydraulic mini steering with the lowest force need
  • the steel parts are coated with plastic. Compared with conventional coatings, a much higher mechanical stability and UV resistance is achieved
  • central adjustment of the harvesting cover for large and small fruit
  • drive pedals for forward and backward drive with direction display
  • professional neutral position for the hydraulic drive
  • 100% filling of the fruit bunker
  • emptying the bunker is possible at any height thanks to a 90° rotation of the bunker
  • optimum grass length between 15 – 25 cm
  • our machines achieve the highest picking rates (almost 100 %) without damaging the fruit, due to the gentlest picking of the rubber lips at minimum and maximum fruit density
  • during the picking or collection process, the fruit is cleaned of leaves and grass and cleaning is achieved as if by hand
  • can also be used in high soil moisture conditions due to its low weight and off-road tyres
  • robust industrial motor
  • the device is very easy-to-operate
