We here at Grapplers Inc. are proud of the number of accomplishments we have achieved with the only American-made trash pickup tool on the market today. Let us share with you a story.
We had an interesting request one day from a paper company in Alabama. They had a giant machine that they would feed a giant roll of paper into but it was extremely difficult to reach the ends of the paper and feed it into the machine. So they called us and asked if we could make a special long reach grabber just for them.
After a little bit of consultation and understanding exactly what was needed, we set about and produced the worlds longest grabber tool at 16 feet long. This photo shows Jay Theissen’s holding the Grappler in a variety of positions just to give you the proper scale as to how long this thing really is. We must stress though, that this extended grabber is only to be used in a situation like the one of the Alabama paper company is using it for and that is pulling something down. Because of its length it is impossible to pick up anything with one hand in a horizontal position at any angle.
I think it was Archimedes is said, “if I had a lever long enough, I could move the earth.” While this is not that lever, it is certainly a long device. It was made for one purpose only and for one customer only. And they were so happy with the first one that they ordered 4 more!
We do offer a number of other standard length pick up tools that are longer than any of our competition. Not only they longer but they are much stronger and have greater capabilities. They range from 2 feet long all the way to 8 feet long and can be used in a variety of situations. The most popular one is the 33 inch long Grappler that is used by the vast majority of individuals need a litter pickup tool trash along highways, in yards, at schools, etc.
Some of the other longer Grapplers are used in other ways as their length and strength makes it easier for people to pick up something while riding along in a tractor or utility truck. Some crews use them to reach deep down into the pit toilets at campgrounds to retrieve trash that people throw in them. Others can be used to reach down wells or pipes to dislodge items. Others are used by bomb squads to give themselves a little extra distance in picking up hazardous, explosives or chemical materials.
There are many uses for an extended reach Grappler, especially for a device that can not only pick up a toothpick, but also a 2 Liter bottle completely full of liquid. It is strong enough to do that and it is the only trash pickup tool the market today that can boast such a claim.
