Customer Reviews

This picker does a great job picking fruit from the top of the tree.
Christie
And we experience some issues where the collar would not properly tighten when we extended the pole (the plastic piece was slipping on the bottom pole).
QuickReviewBuyer
The construction of the pole is sturdy and very light in weight, nevertheless.

This fruit picker is very similar to most with the similar basket design. The construction is solid, and the basket should stand up well to normal use. There's not much design difference among similar fruit pickers in home center stores. The biggest differences tend to be the length and quality of the pole, and the quality of the basket. This pole is long enough for anything I would need, is lightweight enough because of the material, and is likewise strong enough.

If you are concerned about tree damage, all the fruit picker does is let you place two of the prongs above a piece of fruit so it falls into the padded basket when you pull on the fruit. You are at no more risk of damaging a tree than you would be pulling off a piece of fruit by hand, except there's no option to hold the branch in place while pulling the fruit.

Similar fruit pickers in stores are generally more expensive or give you a shorter pole or flimsier basket. You can feel comfortable that this ranks among the better ones of its design and makes sense if the price is right for you.

Southern California is an excellent place for growing citrus and a fruit picker with a long handle is a necessity. I've gone through two of the wooden-handled, non-retractable pickers, both of which were heavy and unwieldy to use. They also got left outside because they were too long to put in the garden shed, so the vinyl on the basket and the poles themselves eventually cracked from exposure to the weather.

This new picker is so light that our 8 year-old granddaughter is able to easily use it when it's at the shortest length, enabling her to have the satisfaction of picking lemons for the lemonade she makes herself. I like being able to extend the pole to pick fruit from the middle or top of the trees without damaging branches or feeling like I'm wrestling with a pole that's longer than I need. The old ones regularly hit the ground when I was trying to angle the basket through the branches. Being able to adjust the pole to the necessary length makes using the picker easy, rather than a chore. And, when I'm done, the picker is compact enough to store on a couple of bicycle hooks in the garden shed. No more trying to find a place to keep it!

What a great item! The pole feels hefty and I must warn you that it is 6 feet long plus the basket being another foot, so if you unpack it in the house make sure you don't knock the ceiling fan down like I almost did.

I cannot wait for peach season to arrive, this nifty thingie will allow me to reach to the top of a mid size tree without causing damage and, with the absence of ripe peaches glowing in the sun, prevent less considerate people to break the tree's top off again as they have done in the past.

With a bit of adjustment such as meshing in the basket I am positive that I can also use it to pick grapes off vines that can't be reached otherwise. Twelve feet is a lot of reach, highly recommended!

It's easy to extend and the basket can hold up to 3 fist-sized mangoes at a time. The really big mangoes fit, but are hard to shake out. This is my third picker, and the poles usually go first. Hopefully, the fiberglass pole will outlast the old wood poles. Amazon had the best price....

After borrowing a friend's apple picker the past couple of years I thought I should buy my own...I did see some at big box stores, but wanted more reach, which this definitely provides. The 12' pole enables you to get to the top of most trees (when your own height and arm reach is added in), and it's easy to use. The pole is very sturdy, and fiberglass, so won't splinter as wood can. The box that it was delivered in was pretty raggedy, and partway open, but the picker itself was in fine shape. Would definitely order, you'll be happy you did!

I reviewed all the pickers, this appeared to be the best.
I would recommend this one, to any one with fall fruit trees.

This fruit picker is long enough to reach really high fruit. The telescoping handle is better than those screw-and-sleeve gizmos. However, it is hard to tighten the handle sufficiently to keep it from slipping back from height. Be advised that the height of this one could make you dizzy, and don't use it too long with out taking a break. DO NOT use it on a ladder: dangerous!!!!
The twelve-foot length requires extra balance and concentration and you could easily forget and fall off the ladder.

This picker is easy to use and does an acceptable job. It would be better if the wire basket (and tines) were made of heavier guage wire - basket construction is a bit wimpy. If the tines were slightly longer I think it would work better. Still, not a bad product for the price. It is certainly much easier and safer than picking tree fruit from a ladder.

Update: After a few uses the tine in the center of the basket broke off. Next to go was the glue that held the plastic locking nut in place on the lower section of the fiberglass handle. I ordered a replacement basket and have glued the nut back on the handle with Loctite brand "Epoxy Plastic Bonder" (expensive stuff). We'll see if this holds... This 25 dollar fruit picker has now cost me over 40 bucks. Obviously I'm not very happy with this product and have reduced my rating from four stars to one.
