ABSTRACTT

The major object of this project is to fabricate a low cost portable post-harvest fruit and portable
manual fruit harvesting for rural and urban use properly. The manual Fruit harvesting machine is
Economic importance for producing the post-harvest which made from different unusable
materials and what you get simple in local market such as mild steel, round pipe, waste material,
has been successfully this technology. Using a picking pole with net bag 2 attached for catching
the fruit once it is severed. Designed from internal movable pipe of 20ø which inserting in to 25ø
of external movable main pipe to increase or decrease its length to depending up on the length of
fruit trees and easy to picking Mango or avocado fruits. When using it, moves 3600
by heart
holder mechanically up and down in order to reach the height of fruit trees properly, also it
moves by hollow erected pipe side to side until catch the fruit even a person who
picking/collecting/ its stand on the land. As we know that, Ethiopia were needs to produce large
amount of fruit, and fruit trees however, have a more direct utility to people for nutrition and
food, in that they provide fruits which are rich in vitamins. So, it must needs technology which
more effective and efficiency to these purposes. In order to fulfilling the needs of our farmers I
would like to prepare one technology which solve this problem. This technology will propose
how it was needed and it improves many things by identifying the area of the problem.
Therefore, by using the new modern technology; it will save our self from falling down trees.
Then, if we use the modern mechanism such as Fruit harvesting we can justify the all above
problems

Background of the project

Before this time our country were tiered for long time in case of using traditional method to
gather fruits; by through stone, through stick, using uncomforted ladder, clamping over the trees
for gathering or picking mango and avocados’ fruit .so such utility to people for nutrition and
food, in provide fruits which are rich in vitamins. Still today our country Ethiopia was using the
ancient/traditional/ system of picking fruits, such as mangos, avocados and etc. that means our
life were interconnected with agricultures. Also Ethiopia was needs to produce large amount of
fruit, and fruit trees have a more direct not support by modern technology still today So, such
mechanism were not effective to increase our society needs and some people must lose their life,
even fruit appearance because of this problem. As we know mangos and avocados were the
most economically important fruit all over the world. Also Ethiopia was needs to produce large
amount of fruit, and fruit trees have a more direct not support by modern technology still in
today. The major significance of the manual fruit post harvesting was; to enhance productivities,
efficiency and competitiveness, especially in Ilu Abba Boora zone (I/A/Boora),east Welleg zone
around Guttin and Jima zone etc. because, of where large amount mangoes and other fruit toke
place specially in these area. In order to fulfilling the needs of our farmers I would like to
prepared manual fruit harvesting technology which solve these problems. In today’s industrial
world man’s innovative ideas has taken him towards all directions concerning about the
production and safety in industrial establishments. Some instruments are of shear excellence
where as others are the result of long research and persistent work, but it is not the amount
of time and money spend in the invention of device or the sophistication of it operation is
important, but its convenience, utility and operational efficiency that are important in
considering the device.

Description of the project

The major significance of the manual fruit post harvesting was; to enhance productivities,
efficiency and competitiveness, It is clearly also today Fruit harvesting of our country Ethiopia
still using the traditional system that means by hand gathering and picking from trees, also which
fall from the tree. It must need technology which more effective and efficiency to these purposes.
it can moves 3600

at any direction means up and down, side to side, stretching from each other
to increase or decrease length depending up on the length of that trees. Using a picking pole with
net bag 2 attached for catching the fruit once it is severed and gather from above 3m-10m height
of trees by standing on land. Designed from internal movable 3 pipe of 20ø which inserting in to
25ø of external movable main 4 pipe to increase or decrease its length to depending up on the
length of fruit trees and easy to picking Mango or avocado fruits. When using it, moves 3600 by
heart holder 5 mechanically up and down in order to reach the height of fruit trees properly,
also it moves by hollow erected 6 pipe side to side until catch in case teeth 1 the fruit from trees
to other trees. During moves the handle 7 to increase or decrease length of this manual fruit
harvesting machine it must use tied bolt. Therefore, by using the new modern technology; it will
save our self from falling down trees, other life, also fruit appearance to satisfying;
o This technology was more environmental friend in all place
o It will encourage import substitution plan of our country
o It will save foreign currency lose.
o Produce from simple mild steel and some waste materials.
o It is not more need skills to produce after prototype was ready.
o It is very light in weight so, it is easy to move from place to place.
o By using this technology we safe, fruit appearance, our self, and other life from hazards.

What I (Claim).

 A picking pole with net bag attached for catching the fruit;
It is used to picking/holding/ 10 piece of mango at once and if avocados 12 piece.at once.
 Mechanism of Moving direction method; it, moves 3600

by heart holder mechanically up

and down in order to reach the height of fruit trees properly.
 Moves the handle to increase or decrease length of this manual fruit harvesting machine it
must use combine bolt.
 Design and method of using this manual fruit harvesting
