There is then a series of conveyors and blowers and sweeps that sort out the leaves and a conveyor at the bottom that brings out the cones, it's a very awesome and compact machine. It's a wondrous and masterfull design for such a complicated process all in a footprint of about 9' x 20'. If you ever have the opportunity to see one, take it, even better if it's running.
