I just love harvesting equipment and my favorite is the Colossus mechanized olive harvester. I don’t think we’ve used any of the MaqTec olive harvesters in the US yet, but I know that the Colossus mechanized orange harvester is used in Florida.
These harvesters are enormous and what I like best about them is that they allow olive growers to plant and harvest more olive varieties than just the few that are available on the small (super-high density) side. This makes for a greater variety of table olives and olive oils in the countries that grow them.
So here is the MaqTec video for the Colossus S, the S stands for the sensors used to detect the trunk of the olive tree as the Colossus passes over. I hope you enjoy the video and the sexy club music sound track.
