Opis

Traditionally the collecting of fruits was performed using mobile ladders (extension ladders and double sided step ladders). The efficiency of the collection process was very low and the risk to accidents and health problems to the workers was very high. Simultaneously to reduce workload on the employees, to increase the efficiency of the process and to increase the quality of the products  by simplifying the collection process were the main objectives to achieve by the producers.
