Mallee harvester reaches milestones [cached]

Richard Sulman, Principal Engineer Biosystems Engineering, with the prototype mallee harvester.

During trials near Casino in New South Wales, trees were harvested at a rate of 38 tonnes per hour for 74 minutes, far surpassing the milestone target of at least 20 tonnes per hour for at least an hour.
Development of the successful prototype has been passionately pursued by Richard Sulman of Biosystems Engineering, and the Western Australian (WA) Department of Environment and Conservation's (DEC) Rick Giles and John Bartle, and others. To see the harvester working so well during the trial was a thrill, and a great result for all those involved," he said.

According to Biosystems Engineering's Richard Sulman, conventional harvesting, bunching and chipping costs a minimum of $45 a tonne for small trees like mallee, whereas the prototype harvester, once fully developed, is expected to cost less than $25/t.

Mr Sulman says the harvester can be scaled to suit 3m to 20m high trees with large end diameters up to 200mm.
The harvester processes a single tree every 2.5 seconds. During its first outing at Condobolin, NSW, Mr Sulman says the machine exceeded a performance indicator of 20 green tonnes an hour and recorded a capacity of up to 35t/h. He expects the prototype to achieve 40 to 50t/h with further development.
