Abstract: Trunk and bough skakers are common equipment for olive harvesting and therefore information about their performance is becoming available. For less common equipment like canopy shakers, there is a lack of information relative to their field work capacity. The Oli-picker harvester is commercially available and operates brushing the tree canopy with a spiked cylindrical comb mounted on a hydraulic articulated arm, making possible operation inside or around the olive tree crown. This paper presents results from three years of observation of the Oli-picker harvester in Trás-os-Montes(northeast of Portugal), including the methodologies of work followed in the field, the work rates found and expected costs.
