BUMPY Extraction (Surface)


The BUMPY drip tape extraction Implement or lifter is the ideal equipment to extract drip tape in shallow applications (buried 2″ or less). The implement forces the drip tape out of the ground and over plant material. Then, drip tape can be efficiently retrieved from the end of the row by ULTRA Binders or MEGA Binder retrieval equipment. This system can also be designed for the vegetable grower who uses drip tape to germinate in the center of the bed, but wants to move tape into the furrows for subsequent irrigations. The extractor applies a constant pull on the tape while the tractor traverses the field, pulling the tape out of crops and laying the tape on top of the crop or in the furrow.


  • Easily extracts through crops such as tomatoes and lettuce
  • Reduces hand labor to move tape
  • Places tape on top of crop or furrow
  • Saves tape for reuse or recycle
  • Forces remaining water from drip tape eliminating the need to blow tape lines
  • Works with 8 mil and thicker drip tape
  • Great for multiple rows of tape per bed
  • Shakes debris off of tape
