The machine, which Germans call a "robot harvester," can also be used to pick other vegetables and berries. The first of the fully-automatic harvesters has been put to work on the fields of a large North German bean farm. It is hauled by tractor and the tractor also supplies the power necessary to operate the machine. ! Constructed to harvest two tones rows of beans at a time, the "robot" includes finger-1 i k e mechanisms, which reach down and scoop up beans and leaves and haul them inside onto a conveyor belt. Two blowers in the harvester detach and remove the leaves as the beans pass by along the conveyor. Afterwards, the beans are automatically sacked and ready for shipment to the canning factory.
