2.7m Concrete Platform

Known for their strength and engineering integrity, Orbit platforms are well featured and designed specifically to integrate seamlessly with Waikato Milking Systems and accessories.

The design of an Orbit rotary platform provides operators with a clean, fast milking environment, cow flow on and off the platform is excellent and the milking equipment is easily accessible. The direction of platform rotation is selected at the time of sale. One operator control console is supplied with the platform that includes safety devices and protection equipment. SmartFit mounting systems make equipment installation quicker and maintenance easier. With 2.7m wide decks Orbit platforms also offer excellent protection for milking and electronic equipment.

Buying an Orbit rotary platform is an investment in solid, proven technology. The design enables installing an off the shelf Waikato Milking System without any further additions or alterations. This is an important consideration as adding to a completed platform can compromise the integrity of the finished product.

With a well-earned reputation for more than 25 years concrete rotary platforms have served the dairy industry well. Waikato Milking Systems Orbit rotary is a recognised leader and has proven over time to be the platform of choice for most New Zealand and many international customers.
