Self-Propelled Type Tea Harvester to be used at Large Scale
Tea Plantation

 

This is a large and high performance machine that is a riding self-propelled tea harvester.  In
1969 Japan, the first Riding Type Tea Harvester was developed. Since then, total 5,400 units
of Valiant Series including Tea Harvesters, Pruning Machines, Spraying Machines, and
Fertilizer Applicators have been manufactured and supplied mainly to Japanese tea farmers.
 
Based on many years of experiences manufacturing tea harvesters in Japan, VALIANT Tea
Harvester MCT-E SERIES has been developed for the usage of wider field of tea plantation
cultivating black tea. The requirements of tea harvester at Japanese tea farmers (average
2 - 5 Ha.) and tea plantations producing black tea (300 – 500 Ha) are quite different. 
Because, the plantation use tea harvester has to have a bigger capacity, wider in width and
needed to robust withstanding against heavy duties and a long hours of operation.

The Tea Harvester MCT-E has over 3,000mm in width which makes it possible to harvest two
bushes’ row at a time. At undercarriage mechanism, long lasting, durable and reliable rubber
crawlers are adopted.
