Fruit Catcher / Fruit picking equipment

Fruit Catcher
Fruit Catcher

The aging in the agricultural industry of countries in Southeast Asia is becoming more and more serious. Therefore, most farmer hires inexperienced workers instead in the short period of fruit harvest. Inexperienced workers with improper picking force on fruit and more fruits dropped accidentally by workers who are requested to do the job quickly. Both cause more fruits damaged and in poor quality.

The Fruit Catcher takes the rolling way for the fruit to go down enabling the workers to pick and put more intuitive. Fruit goes down along the rolling way, instead of fruit threw between two workers.
