The article focuses on the selection of constructive and kinematics parameters of the picking device intended for picking lowbush blueberry, cultivated on milled peat fields. The constructive parameters of the picking device are reel radius, the height of the picking device’s axis of rotation from the ground, the number of picking rakes (or the displacement angle of neighbouring rakes) and the angle of inclination of rake teeth in relation to the upward direction. The kinematics parameters include the angular speed of the picking reel, the machine velocity and the kinematics number. Key words: agricultural engineering, blueberry harvester, picking reel, constructive and kinematics parameters.
