Place all whips, shoots, or other
prunings that have no branching to them
on top of the base branch. Try to keep
brush rows as straight as possible.

orchards can be stacked every other row.
Keep brush free of twine, metal, rocks
etc... (twine will wrap around roller
bearings and have to be cut out).

time and allow the machine to pick up
all prunings. The end result is a clean
