Orchard Division

Our orchard division is operated by R. Allen Scheidt formerly of Scheidt Enterprises. Allen started Scheidt Enterprises in 1971 after graduating from FresnState College. Over the past 30 plus years, many new innovations have been introduced the almond, walnut, etc. harvesting methods. Allen and Scheidt Enterprises have been a leader and innovator in carts, conveyors and bank out systems.

In 1995, Allen joined forces with Clint Erling at KCI, and together, have brought harvesting equipment to a new level. Along with a highly talented group of fabricators KCI is able to offer one of the best and most complete lines of nut harvesting equipment. If you took a snapshot of all the new and most popular equipment used today, you would see many KCI design ideas. We build equipment that is made to last, easy to work on, and contain high quality components. With over 50 years of design and construction experience, you can rest assured we will have a machine to fit your needs.

We can alter our equipment to suit your particular application, or we can custom build from scratch anything you can envision. Please feel free to contact Allen or Clint for any further information, quotes, or testimonials from our many satisfied customers.
