SOLUTIONS  Mechanical Harvesting  Almonds/Olives 
DT-18 C

DT-18 is comprised of the DT-12 system equipped with DT-15 and DT-17 trailers.
The system is suitable for almonds and olives. With this method, the fruit from the collector flows directly to an intermediate trailer (instead of to the containers). The system is operated by means of two tractors (80 hp each). When the intermediate trailer is full, it unloads the harvest into another trailer such as the DT-17 or similar. 

The conveyer moves the crop backwards to the intermediate trailer, DT-15, which transfers it to a spreading trailer, DT-17. The spreading trailer, towed by another tractor, spread the harvested crop on the ground for drying.
