The Bin Runner is a very versatile trailer, capable of picking up, transporting smoothly and unloading bins fast and efficiently. 4, 5 or 6 bin models available.
To pick up bins in the orchard the Bin Runner is lowered and aligned so that the frame slides under the bin. Chains move the bin forwards while the Bin Runner is reversing.
Unloading is even easier. Bin Runner is lowered and then driven forward while the chains are moving backwards, gently unloading.
The new strong floor chains have a rounded top and do not damage or chafe the wood or plastic bins, HDPE nylon wear strips are under the chain.
Transporting of bins is very gentle (even on rough roads) because of the smooth ride given by the rocking tandem axles (4 ton rated). These rocker wheel pivots now have self lubricating HDPE bushes. High flotation tyres 26x1200x12" 12 ply, hot dip galvinising rims, heavy duty bolt-on mudguards, stub axles. The crank axle & rocker assembly is now double the strength of previous.
Bin guides are now full length & adjustable in width and attached to the main chassis line - bin central while loading. The axle assembly can be unbolted from the frame to allow compact transport.
The Bin Runner has large skids which aide easy pick up of bins on soft ground while the chains remain clean. Also prevents damage to hot-mix while loading & unloading.
NEW - hydraulic ram operated 4 bin latches prevent bins from slipping off while loading or transporting. You can even load bins driving down a steep slope. The ratchet latches will prevent the last and second last bin coming off. When unloading, these latches are automatically hydraulically retracted.
Bin Runner is highly manoeuvrable when mounted to the front of the tractor, which is the standard set-up for use in orchard conditions. Headlands only need to be 7 metres clear to enable Bin Runner to efficiently pick up bins.
Bin Runner is proven to be cost efficient because the one unit picks bins up from the packing shed, distributes them in the orchard and then returns to the packing shed with full bins. Even with distances of 2km to travel it eliminates the need for trucks, tractor forklifts and tractor with 3PL forks.
