Remote-controlled hybrid 4x4 olive harvester

The Remote-controlled Hybrid Olive Harvester is an innovative machine to harvest olives from olive trees using the beating pole technique.

It consists of a self-supporting chassis driven by 2 electric motors.

A rotating telescopic arm is attached to the chassis. The rake shaft performs a rotational oscillation, providing a back-and-forth twisting pulse to the elastic rods that “beat” the branches and shake the olives off the tree. 

The machine is operated through a wireless electronic controller that allows the operator full control of the rake and optimal machine efficiency. In this way, you can achieve 100% fruit drop since you can see the beating head from up close.         

This machine’s advantages include its high degree of flexibility in movement and operation, its capacity to access any terrain, to easily approach the olive trees and its engines’ low power, which offer saving in fuel consumption and therefore limit its environmental footprint.

The drive is permanent, through differentials on all 4 wheels, while the steering wheel also acts on all 4 wheels, achieving a very small turning radius and thus giving the machine great flexibility.
