Blueline Manufacturing

Revolutionary Patented Technology

The new Blueline BH 2015 “Columbia” is the first major re-design of a berry harvester in 20 years.

Blueline Mfg designed this berry harvesting machine from the ground up based on grower input and identified weaknesses of other competitive berry harvesters on the market. Our goal from the onset of this project was to reduce the loss of fruit through the collection system. In many cases, according to growers, this loss was up to 20% of the total crop. With a creative way of moving the crop using high-volume, low-pressure air, we have reduced the loss to the ground by as much as 50%. This system also incorporates a newly designed collection ear which is much lighter, but very strong, with a wider edge to reduce friction against the plants. Our new collection system uses a rubber “spring block” rather than conventional springs. This system is much simpler to maintain and longer lasting.
