lifting, grading, & storage
Description: Several different types of mechanical harvesters are also used to lift seedlings. Most use a digger blade to lift the entire seedbed width onto a moving, vibrating belt that shakes the soil from the roots. They are then placed into boxes for transport to the pre-storage cooler.
