I'm reaching an age of not liking to do stoop labor in the garden. There's also issues with bromeliad beds. The plants are prickly and can turn a hand or forearm into a bloody mess, so working on them at a distance with a long-reach pruner (I have an ARS) and the E-Z Reacher is a good deal. The E-Z Reacher has proven useful for a variety of purposes, including picking up leaves and other debris in tight spots. Its mechanism works well, but I wonder whether a bit of experimentation might yield a better pair of rubber graspers. I think it'll prove reasonably durable.
This product is very well built. Strong enough to pick up heavy objects but versatile enough to pick up tiny objects. I use it when I am riding my lawn mower to quickly pick up stray or fallen tree branches, apples, walnuts or other debris so I dont have to stop cutting. The handle is comfortable, the grip lock is a nice feature, the cups are sturdy. The best I have used.
It is very easy to use and takes lots of stress of my employees backs from bending over to pick up trash. It helpsmake the job of cleaning debris from campus more efficient.
