Since 1967, Orchard-Rite has engineered and built wind machines with precision technology. They take pride in the details, which is why growers from around the world trust the name.They design machinery to match your needs and are there to help throughout the process.
Orchard-Rite® wind machines are the industry’s most dependable protection against the damaging effects of spring frosts and winter freezes. Our wind machines work with nature to pull the warmer air down into the orchard or growing field to raise temperatures and save crops. Our wind machine blades are the safest and most efficient in the industry. We use a unique design and proprietary process to construct durable, all-fiberglass blades. All Orchard-Rite® wind machine gearboxes use a fail-safe oil submersion system for added reliability and longevity. A simply designed control panel allows operators to monitor oil pressure, amperage, and temperature. Every Orchard-Rite® wind machine is protected by a Murphy shut-down system. These systems monitor critical engine thresholds and will shut the engine down to prevent further damage if these thresholds are met. Each Orchard-Rite® wind machine is designed to be site specific. Using detailed aerial photographs and GPS technology, we study the topography of the land before recommending a possible site for a new wind machine. A sales representative experienced in wind machine placement reviews every site before installation, working closely with the grower to find the optimal location and options to maximize the wind machine’s performance. Protect your crops with the smart choice – Orchard-Rite® wind machines
