All of the picking 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. The alignment guides are controlled hydraulically by the operator.
FRONT PULLING UP SHARE
A share is used to cut the radicular system of the garlic and then lift it gently to be collected by the belt system. The position and depth of the share can be adjusted.
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, keeping the leaves for better preservation.
The automatic binder adjusts the binding height, the string pressure and the size of the bunches, forming groups of garlic bulbs bound by the leaves for better collection and subsequent processing.
The rear belt, driven continuously or by hydraulic motors depending on the operator, unloads the bunches of garlic vertically onto the ground, the bulbs being protected by the leaves. Their position at a low height avoids knocks and damage to the bulbs.
