Orchard cabs are a very niche piece of equipment but fill a very important need. The unique demands of orchards preclude traditional sprayers and other equipment. This means operators often find themselves right down in the thick of things when applying pesticides and nutrients. An enclosed cab can prove to be a vital supplement to protective suits and masks. They also help to smooth out the tractor’s profile, preventing snags and damage to low-hanging fruit.

Choosing the right cab means not only improving the quality of your harvest but also the safety and security of your operators. So what do you want to look for?

It’s not as simple as just buying a standard-issue tractor cab. Not only will they not fit over low-profile tractors, but they are too tall and wouldn’t do much to prevent snags. You need a purpose-built cab with sloping angles and maybe even some guide bars to help gently move branches up and over the tractor.

To help you out with this, Belkorp Ag offers a number of different cabs from different cab companies that meet the specific needs of orchard owners.

Exact Harvesting Systems offers cabs for all John Deere 5000M, 5000ML and 5100GN tractors as well as cab options for the larger John Deere 6 Series tractors. These cabs are designed to fit each model exactly and are factory installed to ensure the best possible fit. They feature guide bars to help move limbs and fruit around the tractor and the windows alone have a 5-year warranty.

Key Dollar Cab also makes orchard cabs for low-profile John Deere tractors. Their precision fit cabs are made to attach to specific models and are designed to come on and off to match your operation. They’re fully pressurized, climate-controlled and noise attenuating. If you don’t own a John Deere tractor, Key Dollar Cab still has you covered. They make a Universal Fit “one cab fits all” removable cab that works on just about any model of tractor. They’ve been on the market since 1992 and have proven to be a huge improvement over standard safety suits. They can be removed and installed in under 15 minutes.

Picking out the right orchard equipment can make a huge difference in the quality and quantity of your harvest, so Belkorp Ag wants to make sure you have access to the very best equipment so you can get the most out of your operation.
