Old Pokey 343369 49 Rasberry cane trimmer. either
Rasberry cane trimmer.
I decided to use my ol' doublender forklift to trim
rasberry canes. It has'nt made it to the field yet, as it is
raining here in Hillsboro Oregon at the time. I hope it
works.:-)

Independant wing lift for trimming over sprinklers and such.

Continued folding toward working position. If the canes
need to be trimmed at an angle, no problem. The hydraulic
motor drives are independant of what position the wings are
in.

And full out work position. The forklift mast can raise and
lower both wings while they stay in position for higher and
lower canes as needed.

The hydraulic pump setup. The pressure compensated pump and
load adaptor are part of the forklift. The new motor drive
pump is added to the front side of the load adaptor. It is a
reverse rotation vane type pump, so that there is no
increased load at startup for the starter to overcome.

The pump drive. Needed to increase the belt numbers to 3
belts to accept the increased power load.

And the handles in the colored box are the on/off valves
for the front and rear independant of each other.

Thanks for the compliments. It is a 79' 3/4 ton chevy. I
shortened the frame 22" and put the radiator behind the cab.

Here is a pic of its original use that I thought would be
its only use. Wow, was I wrong. It is used so much here on
the farm/nursery, when it ws down while building the
trimmers, it was missed greatly.:-(
