A handy water spray system ensures product freshness.

Lattuga is highly customizable. Auxiliary controls allow for easy addition of accessories.

Temporary stop lets harvester operator quickly pause and resume harvesting without using any other controls.

Galvanized frame and rubber tracks make Lattuga ideal for use in all kinds of weather.

10 x 11 Foot folding deck supports a 3,000 pound payload.

Movable tracks, from 76-inches to 84-inches.
