The new mechanical mounted harvester MEK 1800 permits the shell fruit harvest thanks to the principle of mechanical gathering from the ground. The machine is attachable to tractors with three point linkage both anterior and posterior, power take off of 540 r.p.m. The harvest is carried on by horizontal brushes which displace the product towards a series of augers and screens (replaceable in base of the calibre of the fruit to harvest) which make a first cleaning. In the end the product is pushed by a fan placed at the machine’s side in bags or in a trailer. On demand it is possible to install a lateral brush to harvest in the inter-row.
For maximum harvesting performance, it is suggested to prepare the ground, working it different times by mulcher (grass cutting) during the previous year and before the produce falls to the ground.
