    • T, they are quite the deal. Go down a row of berries and all those fingers shake the heck of of bush and all the berries fall onto a conveyer that catches the berries!

      • T, It’s pretty neat! One would think it damaged the plants, but apparently not! They also use these machines for picking Raspberries!

    • Ruth, the fingers you see inside shake the bushes and the berries fall on a conveyer that feeds those purple baskets. It give the bushes quite a good shake!
