The Filberts (aka Hazelnuts) fall naturally on to the ground. No need to shake the “L” out of them (Almond Joke)
The nuts are put into rows between the trees, using a sweeper.
The harvester drive right over the rows while making lots of dust to pick up the filberts.
Dirty view from the side, that mess is being made by a large fan that cleans the nuts as they go through the harvester.
Really dusty view of the harvester, looking back from the tractor…
More pictures to be posted with the rest of the story later today!
