Harvest: Peanuts

Harvesting peanuts is like hay --- it is a two step process. First you dig them out of the ground and flip them over so that they can dry. Then you combine them.

The combine is heavily modified. The bin dumps the peanuts rather than use an auger.

The header is like that what you see on a hay baler to pick up windrows. It looks like this header is wide enough to pick up the three windrows left by the digger.

The video guy then climbs into the cab of the tractor pulling the trailer so that he can catch how it is dumped into a truck.
