Leek harvester with automatic crate filling system

Leeks can now be lifted by one man only and it is no longer necessary to put the leeks in the crates by hand.
The newly developed harvester not only lifts the leek, but also puts it automatically in a crate without damaging it.

Operation: The leek is lifted by wide gathering belts which are covered with a very soft material while the root is raised by a shaking shear. The leek is brought up and soil is removed from the root by two shaking devices and a couple of root peeling rolls. When it has reached the top, the leek is taken over by 2 grip belts which turn the leek 90 degrees. At the end of this conveyor the leek is picked up by 2 vertical grip belts which put it in the crate. Hereby the crate is moved from left to right and back. The tractor driver adjusts the height of the crate.
