Abstract: The mechanized harvest of coffee in the South of Minas Gerais has promoted a better product quality and loss reduction, increasing producers profit. However, studies on the effect of mechanization on productivity of the culture throught the years are needed since the mechanized harvest not will done can damage the plant. This work was aimed at evaluating the effect of mechanized harvest the coffee productivity comparing it with manual harvest. A completely randomized design with 8 treatments and 10 replications was adopted, in random parcels with 40 plants in average in the harvests of 2000 and 2004. The productivity of coffee was not influenced by mechanized harvest through the years, even when using the harvest one or twice on coffee plants field. The vibration connecting rods increase produced higher amount of harvested grains, however, the defoliation increased proportionally to the vibration whit two passes of harvester defoliation was greater than the manual harvester in all harvests evaluated periods.
