Upright Posture Shearing Platform ready for on-farm use

May '07
It is technology that once seemed a long way from on-farm application, but the Upright Posture Shearing Platform (UPSP) is one step closer for the woolgrower and shearing contractor.

A more productive and cost-effective model of the much talked about UPSP – ShearEzy from Peak Hill Industries – is now available commercially.

Joe Sullivan, Australian Wool Innovation's Project Manager – Wool Harvesting, said the latest model has overcome earlier short-comings, and would be a revelation to growers in particular.

Most importantly Peak Hill has said that the retail price has come back significantly to around $15,000 for a ShearEzy UPSP unit, and Mr Sullivan believes at such a price, the technology is accessible to many.

“It is really suited to growers who may want to shear their own sheep, or who may want to share a platform amongst several properties, or those who are not keen to update or build a new shed, but still have sheep to shear.”

Peak Hill Industries Bill Byrne said the new model had under-gone a massive reduction in size and weight.

“Now clocking in at around 250 kilograms, the ShearEzy unit can be transported on a box trailer or tray top ute,” he said.

“It may be operated on a purpose-built trailer, set up in the open or moved into any shearing, multi-purpose or machinery shed.”

He said the technology is now powered by an 8-10 cubic feet per minute air compressor and 240 volt electricity, and the reduction in size means the company is now in the process of developing the capacity to link a number of the platforms together.
