it's my class and I am near Edwardsburg Michigan so that is the south part of Michigan on the Indiana State Line and I am out here with Milliken farms and their 2017 green bean crop is being harvested with four pixel or Oxbow green bean harvesters I got to know this farm a couple years ago as they owned two versatile 3:05 tractors and I did some other videos here of them picking seed corn for pioneer and since I was in the area and they were doing the green beans I thought I would run up here and get some shots of this for you I did a green bean video last year of my cousin John picking him with a one row biron green bean picker which essentially works the same as this there's a set of fingers on the head here that stripped the green beans off the plant and convey it into the thumb box on the back you see there and then blowing the leaves and the stems and stuff out the side so there's four different harvesters running in this video some of them are branded Oxbow summer picks all but essentially the same thing same company and from what I can see these picks all big jack Pickers can be adapted with a few different heads to pick green beans fresh market sweet corn seed and process sweet corn in spinach and greens other than that I do not know a lot about these machines this is the first time I got to see these up close and personal and I've got some aerial footage and on-the-ground footage so you can hear them run and whatnot so stay tuned for the next fourteen more minutes and enjoy these green beans were planted approximately sixty days prior to me shooting this video and these ones were being loaded into a semi and hauled down to Saint Henry Ohio so pretty close to my house where they will be processed in canned the crew here that was running these four Pickers has many more machines than this and I was just a couple days early they said there was seven more machines coming down to this farm to harvest some more green beans that is about all I have to say about the green bean harvesting I don't know how many videos on YouTube but there is of these harvesters but it looked like a good opportunity for me so here you go and I hope everyone enjoys it thanks for watching this video [Music]
