At Macfrut, Bagioni from Forlì will present an electric asparagus harvester that can reach 22 km/h.
"This machine has an exceptional performance. Of course operations can be carried out in less time, so this machine is a prototype that showcases the ongoing research in our sector."
"We are currently manufacturing six standard machines modified with new three-phase motors and new electronic technologies that will also take part in a competition."
Why focus so much on research in such a niche sector as asparagus harvesting?
Bagioni was clear: "we want to test the various machine components in extreme conditions and then transfer the updates to the production department. We want to get to know the duration and absorption limits of the new lithium batteries as well as of the new technology for electrical traction. This will enable us to provide clients with a new generation of lighter machines with improved power and autonomy. Last but not least, because innovation is in our DNA and we have fun with it."
