Bright Coop, Inc.’s Turkey Pre-Loader offers loading crews a self-contained Pre-Loader engineered to work with the Bright Turkey Harvester. Two people can easily position the 45″ wide x 12′ long Pre-Loader for loading. It slides into the Harvester for transport from one location to another. During loading, the Pre-Loader is stationary above the Harvester’s conveyor with birds moving from the Pre-Loader onto the conveyor.

Key Benefits:

  • Fast Setup for Loading
  • Easy to Position for Loading
  • House end of Pre-Loader does not roll back and forth minimizing bird hesitation when stepping onto Loader and helps improve grade.
  • No need for separate truck or trailer to transport Pre-Loader


  • A hydraulic hose reel enables the Pre-Loader to be pulled out of the conveyor for positioning for loading with one power source for both the Pre-Loader and the conveyor. When loading bottom coops, the Pre-Loader automatically positions itself to the same degree of incline as the woven wire belt in the Harvester.
  • The entrance to the Pre-Loader can be positioned at the desired height with litter banked up to the edge of the Pre-Loader belt which helps prevent bird hesitation as they are herded onto the conveyor.
  • For transporting the Pre-Loader rolls on a flush-mounted track inside the conveyor. The flush mount is smooth inside the conveyor so birds can’t hang up, suffer injury or get damaged when loading.
