The Kirkland UK team is always on the lookout for innovative new products that are technologically advanced and labour-saving. After much research, they are excited to announce that they are the UK importer for COMPACT Harvesters & Platforms. COMPACT is a unique company that introduced an electric or hybrid base whereon you can install various equipment – you can easily switch from the platform to harvesting belts.
Scott Worsley, a partner at Kirkland UK, is enthusiastic about this new venture: “The COMPACT electric harvesters and platforms offer a solution to the increasing labour shortages that UK growers are currently facing. Being 100% electric, they will provide growers with maximum efficiency and reduced noise during harvest. We are still able to take orders for delivery this year, so please call us on 01622 843013 for more information.”
Manufactured in Italy, these impressive harvesters are built with a unique levelling system, providing extra stability on steep slopes. There is also the option of having tracks fitted, making them extremely adaptable in wet and rough terrain. Benefits include:
- A lot of use with one battery charge – you can work up to five days with the platform (eight hours/day) and three days with the belts before recharging
- With the automatic unloading of bins you can unload a full bin and load the empty one in less than 30 seconds
- Increased productivity and reduced labour costs.
Marica Marchesi, international sales manager of COMPACT, explains why they decided to collaborate with Kirkland UK: “We found Kirkland a very progressive partner, who know the needs of the market and are open-minded people. We are also continuously studying new solutions for the market’s needs and with the right partner this will be easier. Kirkland is up to date with current trends, and finding partners like this means that we can satisfy the requests of the market. Another important point is that we found someone who can offer a maintenance service – for us this is a really an important point as we want to ensure that our customers get the best back-up 100% of the time.”
