Our History

Ramsay has been solving problems and satisfying customers need for more than 35 years. We are the world's largest manufacture of self-propelled Harvesting Aids. We custom design the machines to meet the exact requirements of each customer by using the latest computer aided design (CAD) software and our many years of experience. Utilizing our machinery, workers are able to quickly and efficiently harvest such vegetables as broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, tomatoes, and melons and placing them on a conveyor that moves the produce up into bins or into field wagons for easy transport to the shed for packing.

The Highlander Harvesting Aid is a self-propelled laterally-moving field conveyor. The machine operator controls the speed in the field from 0 to 5 miles per hour to suit crop density and the needs of the harvesting crew. The four wheel hydrostatic drives tires run parallel to and between the row crop beds. This design factor, in conjunction with infinitely variable speed, minimizes damage to both the field and the crop being harvested. The machine's steady pace gives you control of your work force, while giving them greater access to the product being harvested. Tires sizes are selected based on the gross vehicle weight, maximum required flotation and the need minimize crop damage.

In short, this means that the Highlander system can be economically and efficiently operated under a broad variety of field conditions, both wet and dry. This machine has an excellent reputation in operating under severe muddy conditions with little reduction in its harvesting capability. At row end the drive wheels turn sideways to allow a lateral shift to the next series of rows, which simplifies row end direction reversal, minimizes crop damage and reduces lost time in the harvesting process.

In summary, the Highlander Harvesting Aid is an exceptionally strong field system which adapts well to a variety of crops and field conditions. It accelerates the harvesting of crops, concentrates the work force which provides more positive supervision while reducing damage to the produce. We're proud to say that we build quality equipment, with satisfied customers who depend on the reliability of our machines year after year.
