Haith Talks Post-Brexit Plans at Fruit Logistica
Haith during Fruit Logistica, which has been taking place between February 5-7 in Berlin, took the opportunity to ramp-up its post-Brexit preparations as the company looks to continue to maintain its European export levels.
Haith machines are used in packhouses, food production factories and on farms around the world, particularly in North America, Canada and Western Europe.
“We’ve seen export sales grow significantly over the last decade. There’s no doubt that uncertainty about how exactly the UK will trade with Europe and the United States has made some people more cautious. However, we have still received a high level of enquirers and orders from those areas in recent years. Obviously, we want this to continue in 2020 and beyond and we’re looking forward to meeting our European agents in Berlin to discuss how we can best work together going forward,” said Duane Hill, sales director for Haith.
During Fruit Logistica, Haith has showcased the Store Loader PRO for the first time on European soil. The company introduced the machine at LAMMA 2020 in January. Haith has incorporated several innovations into its latest store loading machine.
For example, the Evolution deformable roller separator, which removes clods, stone and haulm, can be complemented or substituted by the Haith soil and mids separators such as the high-frequency continental web, steel or polyurethane coils with varying size and pitch options or multi-finfer stars. All units are easily interchangeable to suit growers using the store loaders for varying crops such as potatoes, carrots or onions.
Another new feature for 2020 is the inclusion of all-SEW drive option. Furthermore, Haith offers as standard taper lock rollers, meaning all drive and driven rollers have easily removable shafts, negating the need to change the whole unit when a roller of shaft requires replacement.
As with the current Haith Store Loader, the 2020 model features a detachable drawbar for easy towing and can be specified with LED road lights, driver assistance system and led safety making. All of the machine’s functions can be controlled through the remote panel’s HMI, all conveyors are variable speed and reversible making the Store Loader Pro versatile in all store and yard layouts.
