Harvesting nuts

Profit from our know-how in nut processing and increase your productivity in all processes.

Harvest nuts quickly and simply.

Harvest nuts in smaller amounts gently and without wasting time.

The walnut has its big appearance in autumn. However, walnuts can quickly spoil and become mouldy. It is therefore all the more important to harvest the nuts promptly and in the right way. Ripe walnuts are collected and not plucked. If the nuts are fully ripened, they fall to the ground and should be picked up quickly.

To harvest smaller amounts of walnuts, the Rollblitz is ideal. The Rollblitz is a hand-controlled picking device which collects fruit easily. For somewhat larger amounts, the Obstblitz OB 40 can also be used. The OB 40 is an electric picking machine for smaller orchards.

Harvest rolling walnuts with the Rollblitz.

This picking device rolls and thus collects fruit like lightning. The Rollblitz makes tedious harvesting work easier for fruit farmers and hobby gardeners by not only saving time and effort, but also relieving the strain on your back. To pick up, you roll the spherical wire basket over the ground. The walnuts collect in the ball without any further action, just by the sliding movement. Then, the Rollblitz is opened with a container, in order to empty the wire ball.

The Rollblitz is available with a wood rod or a length-adjustable telescopic rod. With the choice of a telescopic rod, the wire basket can be exchanged and replaced with an attachment for apples or hazelnuts. The Rollblitz is manufactured in cooperation with Backnanger Werkstätten, an establishment for people with handicaps.
