This Harvester was designed and proven to be highly effective in harvesting 1-2 year old plants, allowing the grower to machine harvest years before a typical machine could pick these young plants.  It is smaller in size than traditional blueberry harvesters and provides improved visibility, easier operation, improved maneuverability, and the lowest fruit catching height for extremely effective harvesting of small to medium sized blueberry bushes.

Don’t let its size fool you as this machine is capable of harvesting 6-8 thousand pounds per hour of fresh-quality berries.  This harvester was a work horse for the 2017 season with one of our customers logging almost 500 hours on one machine just this past season alone.
