Peas - Sund Raking Pickup Machine
The Sund Raking Pickup won the Sliver Medal for 'Best Farm Machinery Innovation' at the Sima Farm show in Paris in 1994. Pea growers throughout Europe. Australia, Canada and the United States choose the Sund Raking Pickup for the same features that benefit all growers: The gentle raking action, reduced combine wear and tear due to cleaner picking, and a thorough harvest in all weather and crop conditions. But Sund solves problems unique to pea growers as well.
Pea growers have traditionally swathed or used a straight-cutting technique. However, with the availability of the Sund Pickup in widths up to 27 feet, times changed for the pea harvest. Sund's raking action allows you to direct harvest your peas while leaving the dirt and rock In the field where it belongs. And with Sund you can harvest at high ground speeds while still allowing the pickup to turn at a slow RPM. The result? The lowest possible shelling and clean samples.
Another thing you should be aware of is the fact that even today's upright pea varieties have a tendency to layover on the ground, especially when adverse weather strikes. Well, no matter how flat to the ground your peas lay at harvest time, you will be able to pick them with a Sund.
