VICTOR -  Machine for successful berry harvesting

VICTOR is an over-the-row and self-propelled harvester for plantations of more than 50 hectares (120 acres).

VICTOR harvester has been built to work on several-dozen-hectare-plantations where berry bushes are planted in espaliers without any supports. The minimum spacing of rows is 3.50 m (11 ft. 5 in.). Such conditions make it possible to get very good quality berries and high berry yield.

VICTOR harvester was designed to pick up berries from bushes starting from the second year of fruit-bearing. Berry harvesting in the first year of fruit-bearing is also probable but the precision of harvesting may be lower than 98%, depending on the size of the bushes (the higher the bushes, the higher harvesting accuracy). You can use the special-design attachments for harvesting berries during the second year of fruit-bearing. Such attachments much increase the accuracy of harvesting.

It is a pair of units for shaking fruits that are positioned opposite each other in the shape of the letter "V".
The combination of this system with the ideal geometry of flow of berry bushes through the unit for shaking off berries and the use of a self-aligning suspension system guarantees almost 100% harvesting effectiveness, without any damage to bushes, and makes it possible to harvest up to 20 ton of very good quality berries from one hectare.
