K5 – a universal talent for every situation
The K5 all-round lifting platform is designed for small and medium-sized enterprises. With its platform height of up to 2.70 metres, the K5 offers comfortable working, either when opening/closing hail nets or during harvesting operations.
The patented crate emptying system, already used in its predecessor, the K4 model, automatically lowers and empties the picking baskets from above and into the crate. In this way up to five people can easily pick fruit at both ground level and the top of the trees. The automatic crate conveyer makes working considerably easier, allowing the K5 to operate in both directions during harvesting. As an alternative, up to five large empty crates can be carried.
The control position of the new Windegger K5 is guaranteed weatherproof, with manual control very easy through use of the joystick. Its compact construction also allows the machine to turn easily while stationary. Operation of the numerous functions has been made as far as possible intuitive and thus easy for anyone to understand.
All Windegger machines, including the K5, are examined independently and are certified according to current European Union regulations.
