The harvesting mechanism lifts the onions by a hydraulic driven reciprocating shares and a hydraulic gate, suitable for all types of field onions, i.e. drilled, module planted or onion sets. The Samon lifter is equipped with two lifting webs. Underneath the machine a wide press roller gives a flat, firm surface to the bed for the onions to drop onto. At the rear adjustable windrowing chutes make an ideal windrow for fast and efficient drying of the product.
