New WM V sweeper

Do you ever wonder where those tasty almonds in your candy bar come from.  I know, I was in the field when they were harvested.

First a machine grabs the trunk of the tree and shakes it causing all the almonds to fall to the ground.

Next a machine that sweeps them into a pile that can be picked up and loaded into a truck comes in.  That is my part.  I work for a dealer who sells and services sweepers.  It is a dirty dusty job, but some one's got to do it.  And I get to eat almonds all day.
