Characteristics of an olive harvester

The olive harvester is a machine much appreciated by all olive growers because it is a tool with which you can make an effective and quick harvest. It is also a very handy and easy to use tool. Among its many advantages, the olive harvester is a tool that boasts good penetration into the plant both if it is not very leafy and if the olive tree is very dense with branches. This tool generally allows you to knock down all the fruits, even those most resistant to detachment from the plant and allows you to have a clean and quick harvest beyond expectations and without absolutely hurting the olive trees. It is a useful tool and is highly appreciated by olive growers also for its silence and its total reliability of harvesting. There are various models of harvesters: they are generally electric and each of them has its own characteristics, its advantages and particular advantages for use in the field. It is advisable to always choose the tool that is most suitable for the size of the olive grove and the characteristics of the plants.


Agri12 model

The colibrì agri12 harvester is a high quality and safety tool. It has a harvesting apparatus which consists of two brushes on which the plastic sticks are inserted: these, rotating at a speed of about 737Rpm, are able to collect even the most resistant fruits to the plant. It also does not transmit vibrations or recoils, thanks to its rotating movement. The engine is positioned low and determines an excellent balance of the structure of the tool and excellent mobility of the head. The machine is assembled with materials that are completely recyclable and is totally regenerable in all its parts. Its motor is 1050 high power, 12V and 200 Watts. Its productivity is, at a minimum, from 130 to 160 kg of olives per hour. Its initial length is 2.40 m but can reach up to 3.4 meters with the appropriate extension. The weight, without the cable, is 3.15 kg. The extension with the transmission is from 50 cm up to 1 meter and the cable length is 8 meters. As an option you can have 14m for use with the generator. The average consumption is 6A and the estimated ratio is 1: 5.


Agrieuro elektra campagnola olive harvester

The Agrieuro elektra campagnola olive harvester is a harvesting machine particularly suitable for trees that have well-pruned foliage and are not too thick. The rakes comb the olive branches with an alternating motion that creates an exceptional smoothness between the branches. The engine, being placed at the bottom of the shaft, gives the tool exceptional balance, which obviously translates into less effort for the olive grower during use and easier harvesting. In addition, the head of this machine, despite having large dimensions, has an almost negligible weight of only 1100 grams and the total weight of the tool is really low, only 3.4 kg. Furthermore, this tool has the advantage of being very powerful and fast: it generates over 1250 beats per minute. The combs are made of thermoplastic resin which gives flexibility and great resistance to use. The comb has longer teeth alternating with shorter ones: this creates a great ability to penetrate the foliage of the plant. The teeth can be replaced individually in the event of an accidental breakage.
