Hi Bertrand,

there is yet another solution to saving your back! We work with even smaller crates (about half the size of those shown in your pictures), that take about 8-10 kg of grapes maximum. And we transport them from the rows to the trailer using specially adapted weelbarrows, that take 6-8 crates at a time. There is one grower in our village (Mercurey) that uses even smaller crates (8 cm high, take 4 kg), but you need about a zillion of them; and cleaning all those crates is a nightmare!
