After shaking several rows of trees one of the boys blows the pecans away from the trunk of the tree out so Danny can come through with the harvester and pick them up. We also use one of the other tractors with the sprayer to blow some of the leaves off of the pecans. When Danny comes through with the harvester, it picks the pecans up and blows the leaves out the back. (We are all covered in a nice think layer of grime at the end of the day!) The harvester has a large hopper that fills up with the pecans and of course some trash. The hopper is emptied into a large wagon & carried to the building for cleaning & grading.
