Orchard Bin Loader

Bin Loaders are a self loading and unloading trailer designed for transporting fruit bins in and out of the orchard quickly and efficiently, without the operator having to leave the tractor seat.

Ben Wye Bin Loaders are of heavy duty construction and use a fully hydraulic cam axle to lower the forks under a standard fruit bin, and then with the aid of bi-directional hydraulically driven roller chains, the bins are pulled back up onto the Bin Loader. This process is repeated until the Bin Loader is to maximum capacity. Simply reverse the process to unload the fruit bins from your trailer back at the packing shed.

Bin Loaders are designed to be pushed with standard orchard tractors. The hydraulic functions can be controlled in cab with 2 existing hydraulic remotes and the long wheel base gives excellent operator control and maneuverability. Bin Loaders come standard in 4 bins (4000) or 5 bins (5000) but can be customised to suit any size or style of bin with a full range of optional extras to suit different types of orchards.

Optional extras include multiple polyurethane idler sprockets for greater grip on plastic bins, soft ride suspension with the hydraulic accumulator, Side rails for bin guidance and walking beam dual wheel axle for rough terrain.

The new polyurethane coated idler sprocket is now standard across the range and has added greater grip on pick up, better retention and greater unloading control of bins. The wide footprint roller chain with rounded profile also helps eliminate damage to the bins. The automatic bin stop works in conjunction with the 2 hydraulic lift cylinders to latch up when the trailer is in transport mode and drop down when lowered for loading.

The Bin Loader main frame is fully sand blasted and then powder coated at 200 degrees for rock hard corrosion protection and durability.
