Almond harvester

Self-propelled machine requiring a single operator.

The coupling onto the tree and shaking, gathering and de-shelling of the almonds occurs continuously without the machine having to stop, meaning a rapid and effective harvest.

The shaking is controlled by a timer, ensuring the almond falls only if it is ripe.

The harvest speed is estimated at an average of 5 to 6 trees per minute for maximum progress in the process.
