Model CL-3 - Citrus Loader

The Industry’s first is still the best!

In 1957 Petersen introduced the very first Lightning Loader® to the citrus industry.  Over 60 years later, more than 80% of all citrus harvested in Florida is handled by a Lightning Loader®.


  • Loaders and Hi-Lift easily convert from cannery/juice to fresh fruit handling.
  • Tub dump pick-up does not distort tubs.
  • 4 hook pallet bar handles wood and steel boxes.
  • 8 hook pallet bar handles plastic boxes.
  • “PI” steel front end for added radiator protection in grove use and easier access to engine components.
  • Hot shift PTO with direct coupled pump for models with automatic transmission.

Models Available:

  • CL-2 Twin Boom
  • CL-3 Single Boom
  • C-9 90-Box Hi-Lift
