Make it easy for yourself: blueberry harvesting combines - making your own hands, factory options
In summer, all gardeners and gardeners are engaged in picking berries. Someone does it in the old manner - with his hands, and someone uses special devices. They greatly facilitate and accelerate the assembly process. So, in order to harvest, combines can be used to collect blueberries. They can be purchased or made independently.
Picking blueberries by hand is painstaking. It is much faster to do this with a combine. This is due to the fact that the berry is very small and densely growing.
During harvesting it is recommended to use plastic containers, baskets. It is not necessary to transfer the crop from one container to another, as the berries can be washed and quickly disappear.

You can simplify the work and tool factory-made, although it is easy to make a combine to collect blueberries with their own hands. Any option can speed up the work of picking berries five times.
The factory apparatus is a container, at the end of which there are long teeth of a curved shape that look like a comb. These cloves bushes literally comb through. All the berries on them remain on the device. Branches, leaves pass freely between the teeth located at a distance of about half a centimeter from each other.
At production at plants, the most different materials are applied. Combines can be made of plastic, metal, wood. In the manufacture of their own hands can be used and dense rubber. And for the teeth most often used wire.
Before you make your own combine, you must prepare.It is worth beginning preparation with the charting device. For ease of operation, it is recommended to make paper templates using which it will be easy to manufacture individual parts of the tool.
You can make combines to collect blueberries on your own. This will require the following materials:
- Metal sheet;
- wire 3 mm.
Having made this combine to collect blueberries with your own hands, you can quickly harvest. The device will last more than one year. So let's get started!
The device consists of a body, a comb, a handle for holding the device and a partition. In general, all combines for collecting blueberries consist of a handle, a body with a bottom. To prevent the loss of berries is provided comb.
The design also has a partition, which allows the device to collect a large number of berries. For ease of use, a handle is mounted on the upper part.
Before proceeding to the design, should make the drawings. They describe in detail all the dimensions, details of the device. Then the bottom of the device and its body are cut out of metal.
As soon as the bottom and the body are ready, a comb is made. It is recommended to do it from a three-millimeter wire. The length of the pins should be no more than ten centimeters.
The edge is bent from one end for reliable fixation of parts.
Front harvesters to collect blueberries are closed with a piece of metal. It makes holes for placement of rods. Between the teeth maintained a distance of about four millimeters. The edge of the metal plate is bent. This is necessary in order to prevent the collected berries from falling.
Wire rods are fixed to the base of the apparatus.
Side parts can be of any height. She is chosen at will. They are connected to the bottom and front of the structure.
A handle is attached to the device on top. It can be made of metal or wood.
Many are wondering how to make a combine to collect blueberries from wood. In fact, it is much easier to perform than from metal. It will take a piece of plywood. The body of the device will be made from it.
The combine will consist of two side parts, a bottom with teeth, a back part and top.It is also worth installing a partition that will not let the berries fall out.
The bottom part will be rectangular. Cuts are made on one edge with a circulating saw. Their length should be about six centimeters, with a gap between the teeth of five millimeters. If you have a grinding machine, you can make an improvised bending of the teeth.
The sides must have one oblique saw cut. The lower part will be longer than the top. Next, the cover and the back wall are made according to the size of the combine.
In order for the harvested berries to remain inside the device, a retainer must be installed on the front wall. It can be made from soft iron, plastic or rubber. On the bolts, this part is planted in such a way as to be able to open. The back must also open so that you can unload the berries into the container.
