Growers Services is the Australian Distributor for a number of Nut Industry suppliers from the USA. We can supply all your nut equipment needs. This includes tree shakers, bankouts, harvesters, blowers, sweepers, elevators, frost fans, carts and conveyors. Thomas Manufacturing Company started in 1970. In addition to portable belt conveyor systems, Thomas has developed and manufactured one of the most efficient and innovative nut harvesting systems in the industry: “the bank out system.”

The Thomas Nut Bank out provides maximum capacity but has a low profile. It allows for quick and gentle product delivery with no spillage or damage.

Thomas Manufacturing Co have a conveyer cart that can be used in conjunction with the nut bank-out. This Conveyor Cart is towed behind a harvester for high-volume “on-the-go” transfer of nuts.

Another product from Thomas Manufacturing is the Pre-Cleaner cart which Is towed behind a harvester to de-stick your crop and leave it in a uniform windrow.

The hydraulic front dump cart is designed for speed and operator visibility. Works great with all Drive-Over Elevators. Thomas’s Orchard Float will amaze the most experienced grower with its ability to smooth and level the ground in most any orchard. There is also an Asphalt float available.

Thomas Manufacturing’s Bank out 180 Elevator has up to 5-ton-per-minute capacity with no nut spillage or damage. Features side-by-side loading of doubles and more time-saving capabilities than ever before. Another Elevator available from Thomas is the Fertiliser Elevator which transfers fertiliser and grain at four different “stock” dump heights for a variety of spreading techniques.

Nut Processors will love this Dual Spout Elevator built for walnuts and almonds. It features a high capacity loading ability that gets your boxes loaded quickly.

The 2 ft Drive over Elevator has a 2 stage, high capacity elevator with a 24″ wide belted chain allows for wide open door bottom dump unloading. The side drive option allows the elevator to be self-propelled. This Elevator is also available in a 3 foot wide.

An attachment for 3 foot elevators is this  Desticker that quickly removes sticks from your crop. Mountable on all 3ft. Elevators. Drum Desticker fingers go through the crop and grab only sticks. The Conveyor piles sticks to the side of the elevator.
