The Picker Machine

We’ve been dreaming about building a machine for picking produce and for pulling weeds for a long time already. This summer Daniel was complaining about his back aching. Luray decided to build a picker machine this summer. He was almost finished when he got sick. I ended up finishing it so we could use it. It certainly saves on the back and makes the work go faster. It helps the most when picking cucumbers and when pulling weeds in the strawberries. It gives me a headache if I use it too much. We need to make a few more changes to it sometime. It is powered with a 7 Hp Hatz diesel and hydrostatic drive. And of course, it runs on vegetable oil.
