Abstract: Trunk and bough shakers are common equipment for olive harvesting. Not surprising information concerning their performance is available. For less usual equipment like canopy shakers, however, there is lack of information relative to their field work. This paper deals with the performance of an “Oli-picker” harvester which is basically a rotor device brushing the canopy, mounted on a structure making possible it to work anywhere, inside or around the olive tree crown, detaching olives. This paper presents results from two years of observation in olive orchards of Trás-os-Montes (northeast of Portugal), including the methodologies of work followed in the field and the work rates found.
