Resumo: An olive grower was invited to organise a full day harvesting test based on two rolling canvas prototypes, using his own trunk shaker, tractors and labour. This paper reports the results observed, making also a comparison with the usual harvesting method followed by the farmer, based on a trunk shaker and canvas manually placed under the trees. Results show that the rolling canvas based system has got a slightly higher work rate, and according to the workers, is less demanding in terms of physical effort.
