The two small pulley wheels in the front carry a 1-inch band saw-type blade with 1/8-inch notches to cut spinach leaves.
The spout extending from the right of the machine carries the spinach to a truck. Just visible is a belt that carries loaded totes to a truck or trailer. Two workers who ride on the platform at the rear fill the totes. This is the only spinach harvester capable of loading totes and trucks.
Miguel Aguiler and Vicente Arevules Jr., operators, growers and maintainers.
Harvesting spinach plants is done at night because the plants stand taller when the sun is down.
