More growers buy there own crop clearance machinery

Hortimat is known for trading used, refurbished horicultural machinery and materials. Recently, Hortimat have started selling their own new machinery. "If we look at the last few years, we can see the demand for used machinery has grown. The demand is sometimes higher than the supply in this market. We don't want to have to say no to our clients and therefore have taken the step to build machinery ourselves so that they are always available," according to director Geert van der Meer. "It is our primary target to meet the demand. The machines are built in-house so we can adapt to the wishes of our clients. Now, Hortimat is not only a supplier of used horticultural machinery and materials, but is also now building its own brand identity."

Bio Bull
The new range includes various machinery for vegetable, fruit, flower and pot plant cultivation. The new range from Hortimat currently consists of semi-automatic bucket fillers, sprayers, fans, emitter hose reels and crop clearing up machines. "The demand for these used machines is really high, but the supply is not sufficient to meet demand."

A special machine from this Hortimat range is the Bio Bull Crop Shredder. The Bio Bull Crop Shredder is a machine that can't be found by just any grower. "The demand for a used crop shredder is coming from abroad. This is to do with the fact that it is almost impossible to find a contractor abroad with a suitable and professional crop shredder. Therefore, our Bio Bull Shredder is the perfect solution!"

With the Bio Bull crop shredder, crops are reduced in volume by about 20%. "Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, aubergines, strawberries - you name it. It all goes in the Bio Bull crop shredder." The machine has been built to the latest safety standards, works by remote control and can currently be seen in the showroom of Hortimat.
