Why our product?


Disconnectable electric drive is a solution recommended especially for medium and large mushroom growers who put strong pressure on the continuous growth of harvesting productivity, thus expecting a quick return of investment.


The disconnectable electric drive has become an indispensable element of GROWTIME picking lorries

Quick assembly and disassembly definitely simplifies activities connected with preparing the rooms growing for the steaming process.

Electrically driven mushroom picking lorries offer intuitive operation and meet the expectations of pickers. The simplicity of disconnecting its drive and battery is an additional advantage. It gives an opportunity for disinfecting picking lorries separately in growing halls.
