Harvesting & Deleafing
12v Mambo Karbonium Picker
The Mambo KARBONIUM Evo AL300K from Zanon of Italy has proven to be the most extraordinary Olive Picker we have ever used. We first trialled this is 2010 and were blown away with its incredible efficiency then, and it has only got better.
Its unique beating action simply strips the olives off the trees at a phenomenal rate and we have consistently found it easy to achieve 100 – 120kg per hour on laden trees of Frantoio, J5, Verdale, Ascalano & Leccino. It is so easy to use, is relatively light at 2.4kg, it is superbly balanced and the extendable pole (2.1 – 3.4metres) just slides in and out so smoothly with the machine still running.
The unique vibrating movement of the carbon fibre rods goes from 25 – 50cm in width which explains the efficiency. The carbon fibre rods are easily replaced in minutes IF you break one. We dropped 2 this season because we forgot to tighten the screws after lunch and only broke one in the whole season.
During our 2012 harvest on one day 4 backpackers (2 guys and 2 girls plus me partime) picked 1.434 tonnes of olives using 1 of these pickers and 1 of the new Ulisse pickers. We had 4 – 50 x 4 metre nets working 2 rows side by side plus some hand claws.
I believe that this machine is SIMPLY THE BEST Olive Picker on the market and is absolutely able to run all day, every day on a charged 12 volt car battery after re-charging over night. It will more than pay its way on bigger groves and offers great value for money.
AL200 Abbacchiatore FALCON 12volt by Zanon
This is the new extendable lightweight picker from Zanon in Italy. It is a simpler version than the extraordinary best selling Mambo Karbonium. It is another example of innovative design and excellence in manufacturing from Italy.
The FALCON is very easy to operate and has been developed for smaller groves, older and or lighter people and the hobby grower. It works best where a marked increase in picking per day is important but where a tight time frame for picking is not so critical.
It has a powerful 500w motor with the same 8 carbon fibre rods as the Mambo Karbonium. It is extremely efficient, easy to extend the pole whilst still running and strips the olives off with ease. The “bat like” motion of the rods is the secret to these fantastic pickers.
It weighs approx 2.3kg, has a 15metre cable, the rod extends from 1.7 to 2.5metres and it is more than capable of picking 80-100kg/hour of fully laden trees. This picker is another big leap forward in Olive Picking Technology.
