Blueberry Harvester Brushes

Felton Brushes has been making brushes since 1933 in Canada, and continually invests in improvement. Blueberry Brush technology has evolved with the advent of different harvester manufacturers in recent years. We have responded and created different models of brushes to suit these units.

Many variables such as bristle diameter and shape, precise size of backing, and spacing in winding the brush were taking into account to optimize performance 

High Quality Raw Material

Highest quality FDA and CSA approved bristle material is used (Toothbrush filament). This material is very expensive, but results in long life of brush, and 50% less moisture retention, allowing brush to perform optimally in both wet and dry environments. Our bristle is specially shaped and configured to have the right touch of suppleness and stiffness to outlast our competitors. 

Manufacturing Technology

Felton Brushes in Canada operates the finest precision brush making machinery in the World (Wohler Brush Machines). We run this machine exclusively in Canada, and only a few other companies in the USA have them. Our brushes are manufactured quickly and with greater precision than other brushes in the industry, ensuring you will be able to operate without interruption during harvesting season. 

Field Trials

Felton performed field trials measuring blueberry picking yields with different brush variables. Input from farmers in 2008 and filament details from field testing in 2009 resulted in alterations to design, which contributed to an improved performance in 2010 field tests! As the season is short, it takes time to test and bring innovations to market.
