Shockwave Sprint VI
If you are growing almonds or young walnuts, the latest iteration of OMC’s Shockwave Sprint will make your life easier and boost your harvest efficiency. The key to the Sprint’s high performance is its side-mounted shaker which allows the operator to glide down the row and shake up to 7 trees per minute. Standardizing and improving the process further is OMC’s optional patented Tree Seeker system. Not available anywhere else in the industry, Tree Seeker is available in three configurations with increasing automation at each step.
- Tree Seeker Phase I will control the duration and energy of the shake, reducing your exposure to barking, reducing the shake time, improving fuel efficiency, reducing your carbon footprint, and most importantly, protecting your investment by reducing the wear on your machine.
- Tree Seeker Phase II builds on the performance of Phase I and adds sensors which position the OMC Shockwave Sprint VI directly where it needs to be in relation to the tree.
- Tree Seeker Phase III expands on the features of Phase II by adding self-steering capability.
New for 2017 – The Sprint VI is now powered by a Caterpillar 4.4L twin-turbo Tier-4F diesel engine with a hydraulic reversing fan.
The R-2 Magnum shaker head with 24 inch oval pads and automatic sling lubrication is standard, while the new R-3 Magnum shaker head with 24” oval pads is also available, providing harder shaking for your larger trees. Movement is provided by a hydrostatic drive with a 19:1 ratio, with a 24:1 ratio available as a no-cost option. LED night lights illuminate the front, side and rear of the vehicle, while a color monitor provides crucial information and settings inside.
