Announcing The New
Benthall Peanut Picker
The 1927 Benthall Peanut Pickers will be
equipped with one size chain throughout,
mechanically improved sprockets and closed
grease cups instead of oil pipes. This will
mean less wear and upkeep, therefore adding
to the life of the pickers.
Picking and Brush Bars have been added
which increase the capacity.
Pickers are equipped with combination hop
per and feed stand so that the machine can
be fed with fork from the ground, thereby
dispensing with one man.
These improvements have added to the cost
of production, but the prices remain as here
