A skilled coconut tree climber has become rare and farmers are finding it difficult to harvest the nuts. Though a trained tree climber can climb about 40 trees per day, untrained climbers can climb only 5-10 trees in a day. To make it convenient for them, TNAU developed the Coconut Tree Climbers. This device ensures 100% safety to the tree climber.
This coconut tree climbing device is designed in such a way that even a person with no experience can easily climb up the tree and pluck the nuts and get back to ground level in 10-15 minutes making it a boon for the farmers.There are two frames while the upper frames can be operated with two hands and the lower frame can be operated by just one foot. There is a provision of seating arrangement also.
The entire unit is fitted with the tree ruling out the question of accidents or other untowardly incidents. By standing on the lower frame the upper frame can be lifted in sliding motion upwards and downwards. As said this device is a boon for whoever has large scale coconut plantation. This device will make the total process safe and cost effective and less time consuming.
Similarly, by sitting on the upper frame, the lower frame can be slid up or down.
The operator can ascend or descend the tree by operating the upper and the lower frames alternately.
Since the operator is safely held against the tree by the upper frame, there is practically no risk of falling down. An operator takes about 10 minutes to safely climb and harvest the nuts
