Littau Harvester is proud to announce the latest technological advantages available in harvesting equipment. Littau Harvester has found that the BEST way to provide "state of the art" equipment is to listen to growers. The grower knows what it takes to pick more of their crop and deliver it to the market in the best condition. Littau Harvester's design team builds and modifies parts to provide solutions to these special needs. These changes go into the new production models, which reduce downtime and increase productivity.
Our machines have been engineered to be strong, dependable, and highly maneuverable in every field. We offer a variety of picking head options to suit many different crops and environmental conditions. Be sure to ask what would be best for your crop.

The 2013 Littau Harveser Over-Row XL Harvester has many great features. The elevator has space to hold 4 pallets wide. It has a 6000 lbs rating and over 200 sq. feet of work space. The cleaning belt has over 6 feet of inspection area. This model has a new digital display that was used on some 2011 machines and it used alongside the existing displays.

The Over-The-Row Harvester is a diesel-powered machine that straddles a berry
bush to harvest its fruit. This machine is called an Over-The-Row because the driver
and work crew are on the top of the machine. This machine shakes the bush so only
the ripe fruit falls onto the catcher plates and into a series of cups. These cups
carry the fruit to berry crates after being cleaned by air fans that remove unwanted
leaves and debris. This model has produced the best yield at the lowest cost for all
types of crops.
The Side-Row Harvester is a diesel-powered machine that straddles a berry bush
to harvest its fruit. The main difference in this equipment from our other machines
is the driver and work crew operate on the side of this machine instead of above it.
With a 4-Head Shaker Option you can have better yields, more selective pick and faster
ground speed than the 2-Head Shakers.
