|20150114240||SOD HARVESTER WITH SOD ROLL ACCUMULATOR SQUEEZE DEVICE - A sod harvester comprising a sod roll accumulator squeeze device configured to compact a sod roll while it is on a horizontal conveyor before it is picked up and moved by a sod carrier from a first location on the horizontal conveyor to a second location. The sod roll accumulator squeeze device is pivotally attached to a frame and controlled by a hydraulic cylinder that moves the accumulator squeeze device between an up position and a down position. The present invention is also a method of compacting a sod roll while it is at a first location on a horizontal conveyor of a sod harvester before it is moved by a sod carrier to a second location, the method comprising providing an accumulator squeeze device that is pivotally attached to a frame and configured to compact the sod roll from the rear end of the sod harvester.||04-30-2015|
|20150021426||SOD HARVESTER WITH FLAP CONTROL DEVICE - A sod harvester comprising a start gate, a first switch that is configured to interact with a first sensor, a second switch that is configured to internet with a second sensor, an inclined conveyor, and a rollup conveyor positioned above the second end of the inclined conveyor. The first switch is positioned between the start gate and the second switch, and the second is positioned between the first switch and the rollup conveyor. When the second sensor is activated, the rollup conveyor begins rotating. When the first sensor is activated, an encoder begins measuring distance traveled rotationally by the rollup conveyor. The rollup conveyor stops rotating when the rollup conveyor has traveled a certain distance rotationally.||01-22-2015|
