Bandit Cyclone is a vacuum machine was designed to aid in the efficiency of harvest, alleviate worker fatigue, and reduce bruising during harvest. 

As fruit is being picked, pickers place the fruit into the padded bucket, attached to the bucket are fabric lined tubes, the vacuum creates suction to the tubes which then takes the fruit into the decelerrator, placing each piece of fruit into an individual "cup", then "drops" the fruit into the bin filler, where it is placed gently and quickly into the bin. 

As the bin fills, the electronic eye slowly lowers the bin, allowing the bin to fill without damaging fruit in the process. We are able to create better time efficiency during harvest, speeding up the per bin harvest time compared to traditional ladder pick.
