Better Ways to Extract Drip Tape.

Our extraction and retrieval tools have revolutionized handling of used drip tape, and have allowed users choices to either dispose of or reuse. Our retrieval devices can be outfitted to match a multitude of hydraulic powered platforms. Our new load sensing and pressure sense circuitry are second to none.

  • Dense or narrow spaced vegetables (onion, lettuce, potatoes, carrots, celery, vegetables)
  • Extraction of surface or very shallow buried drip tape (maximum of 1" depth)
  • Lightweight version/smaller tractors
  • Open or closed center hydraulics
  • The lifting of high volumes of drip tape
  • Pre-harvest or post-harvest use

Applications

  • Carrots, onions, potatoes, strawberries, and leafy vegetables (lettuce)
  • Need to recover drip tape with fewer breaks or damage
  • Pre-harvest or post-harvest
  • Used in combination with Dynamo extractors

Features

  • Variable tensioning system (pressure sensing controller)
  • Compatible with open or closed hydraulic systems

  • Simultaneous water removal
  • Capable of passing connectors
  • Tape Guide
  • Mud cleaning component
  • Manual operating lever for mini extractor tires

Options

  • Numbers or extractor heads (multiple configurations)
  • Coulter wheels (cut debris to free tape for lifting - Lettuce)
  • Front or rear mount

Features

  • Shaking component that lifts drip tape from lodged materials
  • Tension control that matches drip tape strength
  • Lifting speed (up to 4 mph)
  • Speed control
  • Easy maintenance and parts replacement

Options

  • Numbers or shakers (up to 9 shakers)

  • Open and closed hydraulic system
  • Safety operator fences
  • Safety stop button

Options

  • Rigid and folding versions available (folding version - easier transport)

Features

  • The unique control system automatically matches extraction speed to tractor speed
  • Hydraulic system controls tension and gently extracts drip tape
  • Pneumatic pulling tires gently squeezes out the water
  • Implements with more than one line require a closed-center hydraulics
  • Specialized undercutters (breakaways)

Options

  • Number of extraction heads
  • Option for hydraulically expandable toolbar, for a quick change of row spacings
  • Specialized undercutters (e.g. V undercutter, parabolic - greater range of depth, parabolic SDI - down to 16" depth)
  • Spring-loaded coulter wheels
  • Plow sweeps for narrow or wide spacings
  • Compatible with Ezwind retrieval head for over the row retrieval (for disposal)
