If you like functional …you will like this…pure and simple
A couple of years ago, my daughter and her family bought an older used picking machine to help at harvest time on their 16 acres of organic blueberries.
The ‘buckets’ that carry the berries from the thresher up the conveyor belt to the tray for sorting were getting holes in them and berries were being lost……
My son-in-law, Bill…… being a mechanical engineer, designed the new buckets and bought some 1/8” food safe conveyor belt material for me to cut new ones. The fabric is very heavy duty multi-ply cotton and polyester. Made quite a bit of smoke, but otherwise, cut very well.
Here are a couple of the new ones installed. Bill will likely offer other local farmers that have machines like this, the opportunity to purchase replacement buckets
Seems me and my Glowria are now in the farm implement parts business.
