Development of small limb shakers for cherries (Part 1). Improvement and field testing of the shaker

A cherry (Prunus avium) harvesting system in which small limbs are vibrated by a small shaker was studied. A limb with unripe fruits was vibrated by a shaker of 8 cm stroke and 13 Hz frequency. The harvesting percentage was high and most of the fallen fruits retained their stems. The fruits, processed immediately after harvesting, had little damage.
