The 12 Volt Electro'liv comes with a 15m extension cable to connect to your own 12 V power source (eg: car battery)
A key factor in making Extra Virgin olive oil, is getting your fruit from the tree to the processor in under 4 hours.
The Electro'liv harvester enables you to do this by helping you to remove fruit in a timely and cost effective manner. Because no air compressor is required, pollutants and noise are minimised. You can comfortably operate the machine and talk to others nearby. Minimal maintenance is required (although cleaning of the parts is recommended) and there are no ongoing fuel costs.
With its 1100 fives speed, the Electro'liv harvester can ensure not to damage the tree
i.e. new growth and sprigs remain intact whilst the fruit is removed.
An advantage of this machine is it can be used on young olive trees when the bark is still relatively soft through to maturity and also ensures that the tree is able to put its energy into the next production instead of stressing, as it repairs itself from harvesting damage.
The harvester is capable of increasing harvesting by THREE TIMES compared to hand harvesting.
POWERFUL - The Electroliv harvester easily removes 100% of green and ripe fruit thank to the generous power of the tool. Also fitted with a balancing system to decrease vibrations to the user.
FLEXIBLE - The rake head can be placed in 6 different working positions.

Available with fixed 2.2m pole, or telescopic 2.2 - 3m pole.
Designed to remove a a variety of sized olives and has also been successfully trialled on other types of orchard
Operating the harvester....
In practice, using the harvester is simple. The olives droop to the underside of the branch, the agitating fingers move down the branch (in a combing manner) directing the fruit in a downward action and therefore fall below onto a waiting net or catching frame.
The head of the harvester and the unique elliptical movement of the tines covers the zones better to contact and vibrate many branches in a single rake for more efficiency. Also, if the machine is to get tangled in the branches, the machine automatically cuts the power to dis-entwine itself.
