How is turf harvested from a field?

If you are a time-served landscaper/gardener, as I am, you'll be familiar with cutting and rolling your own turf and transporting it to a job?

It was a very manual task. And hard work. 

By the time the turf had been cut, rolled by hand, lifted onto a truck and then unloaded on site, one was rather cream crackered by the time it came to lay the turf.

It's a bit easier today:)

      I'm always in awe of these type of machines. How anyone goes about designing and building is amazing.

    What an ingenious design, really enjoyed watching it work. A farmer local to us has a turf cutter, but with its own 6.8L JD engine, and its .. shall we say a bit simpler than RoboTurfer here ;)
