Vanhoucke - Cabbage Harvester
From Cabbage Treatment
The cabbage harvester is suitable for different types of cabbage, like red cabbage, white cabbage and green cabbage. There are two different harvesters, one for industrial treated cabbage and one for fresh market cabbage. The harvesting principle is the same for both harvesters.The cabbages are lifted upwards by two propelled torpedos. These torpedos take the cabbages to the front of the clip bindings. All leafs are folded over the cabbage to protect it.The clip bindings take the cabbage and pull them out of the ground. Both clip bindings are shaped like cabbage and protected with rubber. Underneath the bindings there is a propelled knife that cuts of the roots and the redundant leafs. The knife is adjustable in height.The harvesting system is copyrighted and designed in 2003.
