Until recently, work crews at Driscoll Strawberries Associates plant nursery in McArthur, California, had to take at least a week out of their schedules each year for post-harvest irrigation pipe retrieval, a process always done by hand. Workers would move across each strawberry field, stooping and straining to move the pipe and load it onto a trailer.
Then, things got a lot easier. Driscoll's discovered the AIM Golden Retriever, a new machine from agricultural machinery manufacturer Ag Industrial Manufacturing, Inc. (AIM, Inc.), of Lodi, California. The AIM Golden Retriever is engineered for use with Certa-Set® and Certa-Lok® polyvinyl chloride (PVC) irrigation pipe from North American Pipe to provide quick mechanical installation and retrieval of irrigation mainline and lateral pipe. The Driscoll's nursery in McArthur already used Certa-Set irrigation pipe in its operations, so Holscher decided to give the new machine a try.
