The Kanna Industries Hydraulic Wool Press (Fully Automated)

The Kanna Industries Hydraulic Wool Press is fully automated. The wool that is loaded into the machine gets pressed down into the storage unit by means of a plunger. Once the plunger reaches its maximum distance 4 spikes from two opposite sides of the machine is driven through the wool bag to ensure that the wool stays in place when the next amount of wool is loaded. Our Wool Press has a build-in electronic scale for you to ensure that each wool bale has the desired weight. The machine is also mounted on wheels in order to make handling easier and also to transport the Wool Press to the site of the wool.

Electrical / Hydraulic Wool Press

The basic form and framework of our new electrical / hydraulic wool press is the same as our well known automatic wool press with the hydraulic powerpack. The only difference is that the spikes are inserted by hand. Our unique design insures that the spikes can be inserted with ease as it enters the bag from the side and goes over the wool. The build-in scale is optional.

Industrial Semi-Automatic Wool Press

We designed our semi-automatic wool press due to the fact that wool exporters need a machine that requires little maintenance while it manufactures thousands of bales. We kept the design of the wool press the same and only added a few reinforcements and adapted the hydraulic system.

Bale Loader

Our bale loader is a trailer that loads round bales, by it self, directly from the field and offloads it were needed. It can handle 6-9 bales at a time and is managed hydraulically by the tractor’s driver.

Cotton Bale Loader

Our Cotton Bale Loader can load a cotton bale with a mass of 2-3 tons. The Loader can be pulled behind a tractor of 100kW. Due to the mass of the cotton bales uploading happens while the tractor and loader is standing still. The load fork of the cotton bale loader descends to the ground and then the bale is scooped up on the right side of the loader. A jockey wheel and arm that pushes out as soon as the bale is loaded onto the fork prevents the loader from tipping over. Once the bale is loaded onto the loader a conveyor belt moves the bale to the back of the loader to make room for the next bale. The loader can load 4 bales with ease. To off load the 4 bales the whole bed of the machine is tipped hydraulically and the conveyor belt then moves the bales to the back of the loader off loading them one at a time. The bales are handled softly to ensure that the wrapping does not tear.

V-Shape sheep Conveyor

The V-Shaped sheep conveyor is a concept that easily helps the farmer or farm worker to have better control of the animal. This in turn ensures that you will be more productive when dosing your sheep.   By adding this machine into your existing race, the sheep can walk into the v-shaped conveyor, the conveyor will gently lift the sheep from the ground, lying on his ribs with his feet not touching the ground. Now the sheep is calm and the worker can thus easily perform his task at hand.  One can easily turn the sheep around by grabbing the front of the sheep gently and the moving conveyor will do the rest.  The speed can be adjusted and it can be stoped by stepping on the beam at your feet and it will start again once you let go of the foot beam.

We have two models.  The one is mobile and can be towed behind your bakkie to where ever you will be working with the sheep.  The machine can then be lowered to lie flat so that there is no need for the sheep to climb a steep step to get in the conveyor.

The static conveyor is a unit that you can add to your existing race but it is not portable.  Both these models come standard 3 meters long with 2 x AC motors driven by a VSD.  The width of the conveyors can be adjusted according to the size of the sheep.

General Conveyor

The Kanna Industries General Conveyor can be used to upload and download general farming items such as feed, lusern and wool bales. A tyre is mounted to the conveyor to ensure that our clients can easily move the conveyor to where it is needed. The height can be adjusted mechanically from 1.8m to 4.5m high. The driving mechanism can either be hydraulic or electric depending on what our client desires.


Our grader is designed to make any surface level by using the ground that is graded. The grading depth can be adjusted.


Are high quality trailers are specifically designed for African roads. We make use of extra strong axles and parabolic spring blades.   Our standard double axle sheep/kettle trailer has gates on the inside and also on the rear and side for easy access.

We also do custom build trailers depending on your usage.

Kanna Children’s Toys

Our children’s toys division came about when Willa’s son was born. He wanted to give him toys that he could really play with. That would not brake at the first sign of rough play. Our steel toy model range include a dump truck, loader, pick-up truck, a trailer and a grader.
