Cherry harvesting with a hydraulic tree shaker

Watch more with these video collections:

What happens when farmers use a shaking machine to “pick” cherries from a cherry tree? This! Watch as these two machines — a hydraulic tree shaker calibrated to just the right amount of cherry tree-specific vibrations, and a conveyor belt with a catchall tarp — collect thousands of ripe cherries while keeping trees healthy and undamaged for future growing seasons.

In the archives: more harvesting and more conveyor belts, which includes these jiggling lemons and mushrooms.
