Crop Clearing Machines

Crop clearing machines are an essential part of (greenhouse) horticulture. The undisputed market leader in this field is the Bio Hopper. A typical Weterings machine that excels in durability and safety. And it cleans out everything that needs to be cleared out: the most diverse crops, substrates, ground covers and plastics. The Bio Hopper is available in various basic models, which differ in terms of drive technology.

The Bio Hopper XL / Clears out everything that needs to be cleared out

The most versatile

One of the most versatile Hoppers is the Bio Hopper XL. In terms of drive, you can choose between an electric version and a PTO version. You can also choose from various options, such as lighting and reinforced transport mats. The XL also excels in simplicity. Two control levers are sufficient to do the job: one to roll up the transport mat and one to adjust it.

The smartest

The Bio Hopper XL's conveyor belt is fitted with robust carriers as standard, which means that even short, bulky crops can be cleared without difficulty (e.g. strawberry plants in pots). The clever use of steel cross pins makes the belt insensitive to damage. Besides the standard XL there is also an XL Plus 750. This has a 750 mm longer conveyor belt, so that larger containers can be used as well.

The safest

Safety is an important item in the machines of Weterings. Including for the Bio Hopper XL. For example, safety sensors are fitted all around the machine and safety doors ensure that the input is completely shielded. The control panels are also fitted with emergency stop buttons, just to be on the safe side. In addition, the control of the hydraulic system is proportional. This means that the Bio Hopper XL never makes abrupt movements and always moves smoothly.
