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!
