I stumbled upon this, while seeking information on Autumn olive. I could see using it with a little rake, like those used for blueberry harvest.
Or you could use my branch shaker, which is based on a cordless drill.

Great find, Dale!

I've picked olives, and that looks like it would be a lot more comfortable and productive than the curved bucket on harness arragnement.

that is pretty neat design.

i sometimes use a plastic shopping bag(or cloth bag) held on to my pants or shirt with carabiners to clip it on. it works very well.
