Any fruit trees on your MIchigan ranch?? I need to find a better way to harvest cherries. A tree shaker is probably too expensive for my needs. I've been thinking about somekind of a bucket lift for the 3 point hydraulic lift. Tried picking the cherries using engine vacuum thru a piece of 1/2 in PVC 15 feet long but it only destroys the cherry.
Bottom line: i'm tired of standing on a ladder strapped into the back of a ranch buggy. Need a better method. And yes i've already tried the various Google'd websites and eBay.
I already have a 40 foot, high reach pole trimmer for trimming tree branches but it is very crude and cumbersome. I just can't come up with a slick, cheap and easy way to pluck cherries from a tree. Have apple and persimmon,pear too. But cherries are the biggest concern.

Why not place some nylon ropes at stategic spots in the tree(s) to use for shaking the trees by hand. Plastic sheeting on the ground to catch the cherries. Use non-slip loops around the tree so as not to strangle the tree and leave them there for next year.
