Harvesting and Handling Section



The Citrus Experiment Station now has a bagging machine for demonstration
marketed by International Staple & Machine Company. This is their model MS-1300Z
that handles "rope stock" (i.e. tubing) of Vexar or poly. At this time, we
have been supplied only Vexar for use with the unit. Oranges and grapefruit
for test runs on the equipment are being held in our cold storage.

Any Florida citrus packer interested in trying out this bagger should
contact either Dr. Bill Grierson, Dr. Doug Deason, or Dr. Will Wardowski,
Citrus Experiment Station, P. 0. Box 1088, Lake Alfred, Florida 33850
(Phone 813 372-1151), for an appointment to use the equipment. You should
be aware that a full day needs to be set aside for this trial and that three
of your people should probably be present. Since the device is semi-automatic,
an experienced packer would be essential along with a mechanic and/or foreman
to evaluate the system.

We anticipate having International Staple Co. demonstrate this bagger
during the lunch period of Packinghouse Day, September 9, 1970.
