Conveyor height control on root crop and vegetable harvesters as well as on storage equipment, is still mostly a manual job for the operator. Operators must constantly watch the drop height and manually adjust the conveyor height to minimize the drop and so minimize bruise damage. This is fatiguing and stressful and sometimes hard to learn for an inexperienced operator.
The RiteDrop system virtually automates conveyor and drop height control. Not only can the operator relax a little and pay more attention to other aspects of running the harvesting or storage equipment, he may also deliver a higher percentage of bruise free and marketable product and so add to the bottom line.
