Choosing a Harvester

The following notes may help you select the right harvester to meet your requirements.

  1. Firstly, decide which broad type your crops fall into:

    Low Cut, Medium Cut, Bush Type or Special Purpose.

  2. Once you have decided which crop type you have, the links and charts below will assist you in selecting the correct harvester.


    The links will show you all the harvesters in that category in more detail, along with some of the crops they can harvest. In most cases, the harvesters can be used on many more crops, but we cannot list them all.



    Starting with our Low Cut Harvesters, we have a range of harvesters available within this category. The comparison chart to the right may help you select the harvester best suited to your needs.


    Some customers may have several different crop types but can only justify one harvester. Some harvesters have options allowing them to span more than one crop type. If in doubt, please ask us for our recommendation.
