JCB TELEHANDLER USED TO TRIM MANGO TREES IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY
NT Land Development has 150,000 mango trees across 4 farms in the Northern Territory. They purchased a 541-70 Agri Super telehandler through their local dealer Forklift Solutions to trim the mango trees. A unique attachment was developed for the telehandler which has 10 rotating blades; 6 horizontal and 4 vertical.
NT Land Development produces the Calypso variety of mangoes which are in season from October to the end of February. They supply these mangoes to major Australian supermarkets and in some export markets.
