The HT - Shaver - BD (Bottom Drive) harvester is designed for harvesting flat bed, raised bed or field grown plants. The HT - Shaver - BD has a bottom drive gearbox for the cutter bar — nothing protrudes below the cutter bar. As the engine protrudes out one side of the harvester, the engine must be in a walkway or over the harvested area of the field. The gearbox is heavy duty and the engine is a Honda 4-stroke GX25.

With the collection bins removed and the cutter head raised it will clear uncut crops allowing easy manoeuvring of the harvester.

This is a serious harvester capable of harvesting more than 6 tonne of salad type crops per week! Typical crops the HT-Shaver-BD harvest include loose leaf salad plants and low growing herbs such as thyme, Rocket, Arugula, Baby Spinach, Baby Greens, Cress, Endive, Mache, Mizuna, Mesculin, Romaine, Spinach, Tatsoi, Baby Beet, Mache, chicory, micro greens and others.

Also available as a self propelled model, and / or with 24v DC power to drive the cutter bar and belt (plus wheels in the case of the self propelled model). Click on the 'Options' tab for more detail.

Preventative Maintenance

You will become reliant on the harvester to do its job and if a breakdown was to occur you could find yourself in an awkward predicament. We recommend regular maintenance to help avoid breakdowns.

As well as the maintenance in the hand book we recommend at least annually, for regular users, stripping the reciprocating gearbox at the end of the cutter bar. Regardless of condition, replace all bearings and the two drive links which also hold bearings. Preload the housing with some grease but not full or it can hydraulic and jam the drive.
