I use Grappler almost every day!
I am a retired physician and a full-time RV’er and have been doing volunteer work in many western locations for almost ten years. About five years ago while visiting the Salt River Park in Mesa Arizona, I volunteered to pick up thousands of beer cans, bottles, and other debris left in and around the river by weekend rafters.
The park service gave me a three-foot Grappler and I spent almost three months picking at least a ton of cans and bottles from the river, most of them heavy with sand and debris, using the Grappler.
By the end of this adventure I was completely sold on the tool and in spite of buying several other cheaper and lighter products over the years, I have found the Grappler to be durable and well suited to picking up not only debris but also firewood pieces weighing up to twenty pounds, as well as small items that were out of reach and even major litter such as discarded car tires filled with sand and floating hazards such as large pieces of Styrofoam, gas cans and construction materials thrown away by litterers in four states.
I use the Grappler almost every day. Even after five years, its rivets and spring are still doing their jobs and the handle continues to work even though it cracked long ago… I could hardly hope for a more durable piece of equipment.
