Ever wondered what it was like harvesting a vineyard at night? Well, here are some still pictures for you to have a look at.
This is the Harvester which straddles the vine and literally shakes the ripe fruit of the vine leaving the stalks behind.
In the next row you can see the lights of the chaser bin which the orgar arm feeds the fruit into the bins.
This is a clearer picture of the Harvester straddling the vine and the chaser bin in the next row.
This was taken from the top of the harvester looking down at the chaser bin and tractor in the next row. Shows the conveyer belt arm which transfers the fruit from the harvest to the bins.
