I keep breaking those aluminum ones from Lowes and Home depot. I had a plastic one called The Picker for a couple of years, It held up real well. What is a good brand that will hold up more than a week?

Mine says its a UNGER. Been a really good outfit. Green tube and blue handle, metal claws and rubber grips. Two years old and used every day. Only thing they wont take is getting run over. Grandson seen to that!!!

The ones That I have were bought from Lowes several years ago, seemed to hold up really well. I'm syre they have cheapened them since then though. I paid around $20 for them.

I never pick up trash actually. I 'm not the trash man and that's what I tell my customers and every one says well that's true. OK. Why would you touch used condoms???!! You re sick. hahhaha

So, your time is not worth anything?

I need to find something better also. Been using the ones from Home Depot, they work good just break too easily.

I use one from rural king for cans or bottles but I tell my customers to have trash cleaned up before I go. If they leave,it and it won't hurt the mower or throw it at something I let it fly.
