We preserve mangoes every year for future use. We preserve these in the form of Achar (pickle), dried mangoes and jam.
We have to climb mango trees or hit the mangoes with sticks or stones. Sometimes we used to call someone else to climb instead of me. This was not fun. So I decided to make a simple device to get mangoes from the tree. All the things required were actually lying as junk at home.
Some raw materials: a long PVC pipe which was already lying unused, an empty cold drink bottle, a cutter, a screw and a screw driver.
Cutting is easy and simple. Used the cutter to carefully make the cut according to the design:
Fix it on the PVC pipe using a screw.
The device is ready:
Some mangoes slayed:

The video is not uploading so I uploaded it in the drive at the following link.
