Model ARCO-1 - Garlic Harvester Cutter
The harvester-cutters remove the bulb from the soil, remove part of the soil and cut the leaves, storing the bulbs in boxes or sacks of different sizes.
All of the harvester's mechanisms are driven by hydraulic motors enabled by the tractor's PTO.
LEAF ALIGNMENT GUIDES
Two front guides lift any fallen leaves and align the garlic plants to make picking and collection along the conveyor belts easier.
FRONT PULLING UP SHARE
A share is used to cut the radicular system of the garlic and then lifts it gently to be collected by the belt system. The position and depth of the blade can be adjusted hydraulically.
CONVEYOR AND CLEANING BELTS
Some of the remains of the soil is removed using a vibration system along the conveyor belts driven by hydraulic motors.
A second set of belts levels off the bulbs and a high speed toothed disk cuts the leaves at an adjustable height, removing the leaf part and placing the bulb on the packing belt.
A rodded belt transports the bulbs of garlic to the box or bag, cleaning them again and removing part of the non-commercial bulbs manually.
