Abstract

Mechanical harvesting of olive fruits with commercially available tree shakers has not been completely satisfactory because the energy output of such shakers is usually insufficient to readily remove a high percentage of fruit. Specially constructed shakers with a high-energy output have been shown to be able to detach the fruit, however.
