superfluous beauty, part 2

Built almost entirely of stainless steel, the Headrazor romaine lettuce harvester shined at the 2008 World Ag Expo in Tulare, CA.

The latest machine from Ramsay Highlander, the Headrazor highlighted the challenges manufacturers must overcome when creating mobile equipment for the fresh vegetable industry, while at the same time it showed off the problem-solving and manufacturing capabilities of the OEM and its suppliers.

Just the beginning of the stellar review that the trade publication OEM Off Highway lavished on the romaine lettuce harvester designed by the World's Best Mechanical Engineer.

This is just to say that you heard it here first, folks »

(So frickin' cool.)

At first, I thought the grill WAS the machine, and combined with the Headrazor name, I was picturing some sort of Remington microscreen razor shaving heads of lettuce off the ground. After a closer look, I'm no longer as confused. Congrats to the WBME!

This praise actually makes me giggle.
I bought a book completely on Art Deco Iron work and read up before I designed this. Appropriately the factors that caused us to build this machine the way we did are nearly identical to the factors that led to the rise of Art Deco. The dawn of manufacturing automation and new materials had just become available in the early 1920's, allowing beautiful objects to be made that were still affordable for the general public.
Thanks for the kind words- B1-67er
