Harvester head options
In addition to harvesting baby spinach and leafy greens, different cutting head and product belt options allow for mechanical harvest of head lettuces and other labor intensive crops with Ortomec harvesters.
Herbex Harvester Head
Alternate cutting head

The Herbex cutting system uses a special blade to harvest crops that are cut at soil level. Instead of a band blade, Herbex uses a reciprocating "toothed" blade that can be adjusted to cut just above the soil for head lettuce, or just below the soil for mache and spinach.

Herbex combines with various harvesters and product belt options to harvest different types of crops with minimal labor.

Herbex can be installed on the following Ortomec harvester series:

Herbex with Finger Belt

Herbex combines with Ortomec's patented finger belt for mechanical harvest of full head lettuces.

Flexible fingers imbedded in the belt gently grip the heads to prevent their rolling off the belt.

With the Green Line bunching system, you can effortlessly bunch and band product.

Green Line uses a system of belts to hold product upright and channel it up the conveyor to workers for quick and convenient banding.

The Green Line system is ideal for bunching, and when harvesting head lettuce.

Green Line with Herbex can be installed on the following Ortomec harvester series:

6 Rows maximum on an 80” harvester.

For harvesting fuller head lettuces, Green Line can be equipped with specially designed crowders which help in guiding heads into the belt channels.

Harvesting system for parsley and similar bunching crops.

The Green Line 2 system allows bunching crops to be cut and carried up the conveyor in an organized manner.

Product is "pushed" in a single direction onto the belt as it's cut. The result is neatly aligned product that can be bunched at the harvester, or gathered into bins for bunching at a later time.

Green Line 2 can be installed on the following Ortomec harvester series:
