ACE have supplied Berkenheger Weed Harvesters to the UK for over 20 years, tailoring high performance equipment to our customer’s specific application. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Berkenheger Weed Harvesters have become a world-renowned machinery range, offering highly versatile and powerful machinery to cut and collect aquatic weed, along with other floating debris. The machines simultaneously cut weed below the water line, and lift it onto the boat using a pair of conveyors. On it’s way onto the hopper conveyor, the weed is allowed to drain, reducing weight and allowing a much higher capacity to be stored. To empty the Weed Harvester, it is simply moored close to the bank, with the front conveyor raised before reversing the conveyors to place the cuttings in a tidy pile.
Operator safety and comfort
The Weed Harvesters are built with safety at the forefront of the design, with visibility over the cutting gear and stability being the key features. On larger machines, the operators cab is set above the hopper, giving the driver excellent visibility- this is also available with hydraulic lift, to allow the cab to be lowered under bridges, but raised when operating to give the best view. Detailed calculation and the addition of flotation tanks is provided to ensure the craft remains stable whether empty or full, and safety feature such as handrails, life rings and fire safety measures are also available where required.
The operator is also kept comfortable while working, with options such as a range of seats, stereo systems and climate adjustment are available. Please contact us for more details on what can be provided.
Typically, weed harvesters are fitted with a cutter bar and conveyors, and configured to suit various types of weed. In addition to this, ACE can also provide lifting booms and hydraulic outriggers for lifting large debris, configure the conveyor without cutting gear for trash clearance, and fit other attachments such as dredging pumps.
