How are Burros used in nurseries?

Replacing conveyor belts
  • Burros are used to move produce in nurseries, often replacing conveyor belts.
  • Burros generate rapid productivity growth because they require no setup or take-down time and can be operated without any infrastructure.
Towing transportation carts in nurseries
  • One Burro with an Advanced Towing Pack can autonomously tow up to 10 transportation carts.
  • Or one similarly equipped Burro can autonomously tow three to five transportation carts on flat gravel.
Towing tracking trailers
  • One Burro or Burro XL with an Advanced Towing Pack can autonomously tow up to 2,500 lbs. on flat concrete or asphalt.
  • Or one similar equipped Burro can tow up to 1,000 lbs. on flat gravel or hard solid conditions.
