A case study to determine performance of Mobile Bunch Catcher (MBC) was done at FGV Plantations (M) Sdn Bhd. One period time was used for test this machine and area coverage about 32 hectare. Using 2 workers as driver and co-worker, MBC will be used to minimize loose fruits collector during harvesting process. A machine was tested at different topography where the area are flat area, mild undulating and heavy undulating. This machine also tested with 2 method of testing, simulation test and Fresh Fruit Bunch (FFB) production test within limitation of palm height from 3 meter to 5.5 meter. From result, FFB production was recorded from 1.3 to 2.4 ton/worker/day. From experiment also shows MBC can maximize labours productivity in oil palm plantation.
