Ortomec series 9700 Lattuga harvester is specially designed for
harvesting and packing romaine lettuce as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Lattuga eliminates one of the most difficult harvest jobs for hand-
cutting crews: continually stooping to harvest head after head.




Lattuga is especially invaluable for romaine harvest thanks to its innovative tray system that aids in consolidating romaine heads into easily handled units that can be packed into RPCs or cartons on the harvester deck. Conveyors transfer the containers to an accompanying trailer. An efficient water spray system ensures product freshness.

Lattuga is highly customizable. Auxiliary controls allow for easy addition of accessories.

A massive deck allows for high capacity packing, sorting, and processing of harvested product.
