The NEWTON aluminium lorry is a device used for picking mushrooms from a harvesting shelving.
The NEWTON hanging mushroom lorry is equipped with electric drives / winches, which significantly improve the ergonomics of work and the efficiency of harvesting.
Automating the movement of the lorry platform up and down and to the right and left (optional) will result in up to 2.5 kg more mushrooms per 1m2 of harvest.
The NEWTON lorry guarantees higher harvesting efficiency per hour. Mainly due to a capability of electric raising and lowering of the platform.
Something which many mushroom farm owners value is an option of easy mushrooms picking from the bottom shelf of the shelving, as well as from the last shelf, especially for shorter people. Then a need of investing in additional equipment which is usually required to pick mushrooms from the bottom shelf no longer applies.
Unique solutions were used when designing the lorry. This guarantees the safety of the mushroom farm employees and of the entire environment.
Your employees will increase the speed of harvesting and also the number of kg/h, at a much lower cost of physical effort.
You will get a much bigger and faster return on your investment thanks to bigger crops per square meter of cultivation.
We offer our partners and clients professional assistance, maintenance service of the equipment, as well as continuous access to consumable parts at producer’s prices!
The lorry platform moves up and down thanks to an electric winch.
The lorry platform moves up and down thanks to an electric winch (detachable or fixed) and left and right thanks to a detachable electric drive. With this option, the lorry can run 40 hours and longer without the need to recharge the batteries.
The hanging lorry designed for mushroom picking also provides for ergonomic mushroom picking from the lowest shelf. The up / down movement of the platform is carried out by means of an electric winch which is coupled with a stainless rope with a dedicated weave. Transport wheels allow the lorry to be transported between the rooms. The electric winch is powered by efficient gel batteries.
The lorry has a stable seat made of aluminium. The upper part is covered with plastic, which has constant geometrical properties in an environment characterized by high humidity. The seat may be placed anywhere, which makes it adaptable to the posture and position of the mushroom picker.
The lorry has a layout of shelves for mushroom crates and scales which can be adjusted up and down. A wide range of adjustment guarantees appropriate ergonomics, which facilitates the efficient mushroom picking by the worker. In the performance of a given task, we adjust the size and geometric arrangement of the shelves for crates / packaging used by the client or constituting a standard in his country.
Additional space for crates allows the operator to work longer without having to lower the platform due to lack of space.
The remote controls can be used to move the platform up and down. This functionality guarantees the worker the saving of time and energy required for effective mushroom harvesting.
The lorry is distinguished by the fact that it offers protection against trapping of the mushroom picker’s hand or arm when operating the platform.
The main frame of the lorry is made of profiles specially developed for its purpose, which means that stiffness higher by about 250% has been achieved in comparison with methods applied by other suppliers in the market for similar applications.
The highest level of safety is guaranteed thanks to the ergonomics of the construction of the barriers, as well as their atable structure. The design of the lorry does not allow the lorry to operate with the trap door open in order to limit the risk of accident due to carelessness of the operator.
The lorry has extremely capacious batteries, providing for its operation from 2 to 5 days, depending on the number of platform start-ups as well as the load placed on the platform. The batteries are charged automatically, i.e. without a need for the presence of an employee, because the process will end automatically when the batteries are charged.
The construction of the lorry is characterized by a very rigid main frame, ensuring high durability and a high level of safety. The special structure of the profiles used for its construction also ensures an extremely high level of hygiene.
The picker’s work area is designed in a way to eliminate a possibility of slipping and falling.
The wheels are made of durable materials resistant to corrosion and their bands / raceways are made of polyurethane. The above guarantees high durability, and polyurethane ensures excellent adhesion of the wheels to the concrete at the mushroom farm. Moreover, the material used for the construction has vibration-absorbing properties.
Electrical components controlling the device are placed in an electrical box, which ensures tightness, protects against flooding, dirt and mechanical damage to the elements. The electrical box has a battery level indicator as a standard. This ensures continuous monitoring of battery condition and helps to effectively manage work cycles and battery charging.
The platform moves up and down using slides of a unique design. This ensures a high level of safety, while completely eliminating the likelihood of indentation and thus its damage.

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.
