Sapelo Equipment Company

Lynden, WA (June 12, 2024)Oxbo is pleased to announce its newest dealer, Sapelo Equipment Company, in Georgia. The Sapleo team will be providing sales, parts, and service support for the full line of Oxbo blueberry harvesters.

“We are excited to bring a more energized approach for sales and service to our blueberry farmers—offering competitive pricing and service plans that cater to the times of year we are harvesting fruit,” said Dave Baxter, owner of Sapelo. “This is an exciting time for us and for our customer base. We look forward to providing a level of service that decreases downtime and keeps our machines doing what they were made to do: harvesting blueberries.”

Oxbo blueberry harvesters were designed to protect fruit quality and improve customer profitability. Technologies like Autosteer and EcoMode as well as Oxbo’s Orbirotor and Dynarotor picking heads were designed to help growers maximize their profit and to harvest Georgia blueberries at peak ripeness.

“Models like the Oxbo 7440 and 8040 are a great fit for Georgia blueberry growers,” commented Austin White, Sales Manager for Sapelo. “Our customers are able to pick fresh-market quality blueberries by machine, addressing the labor challenges during peak blueberry harvest. Machine harvest translates into profitability for farmers and fresh, Georgia fruit for customers.”

Oxbo blueberry harvesters have been hard at work in Georgia for decades, with new features and improvements year after year. As harvesting technology continues to improve and as growers face challenging market prices, more and more growers are turning to Oxbo harvesters.

The Oxbo 8040 and 8140 are single-drop harvester platforms designed for growers with lower tonnage varieties and for those with challenging field conditions, like mud and sand, where the traction package on the 8040 shines. The top-load 7440 and 7450 are the answer for growers with high tonnage varieties—with onboard fruit storage of up to 5,000 pounds.

With various decking, cleaning, and fruit loading configurations, the 7440 is the best fit harvester for many Georgia growers. Oxbo continues to work on new, integrated technologies designed to reduce labor costs and improve fruit quality for customers in the southeast.

In its fruit division, Oxbo supplies berry, coffee, grape, olive, pistachio, and tomato growers with harvesters and other specialty equipment.
