a cherry pickerWhat is a Cherry Picker?

A cherry picker is used by fruit pickers on cables and tree loppers overhead. It is a hydraulic device for lifting that may be mounted on trucks or other independently powered chassis and is provided with a basket at the end. This basket also has a control system for moving the platform to where it is needed.

As a type of heavy farming equipment, a cherry picker comes in various sizes and models that make working at heights easy and convenient. While they allow for increased safety while working at heights, accidents do happen that could negatively impact a company’s cash flow.

Cherry picking or fruit picking in Australia is work that involves picking and packing cherries and other fruit. It also involves climbing ladders. Whilst it may be the easiest type of job to find, it is also one of the most difficult as people work under the hot sun and the work is repetitive and tiring. Nevertheless, it is an industry with high demand and great pay.

Since Australia is the 6th largest country in the world and has different weather and climate zones, fruit picking happens all year round. This industry works with big machinery, exposing operators to certain risks such as accidents and injuries, heavy costs of repairs, machine replacement and more.

With the right insurance in place, you can guarantee that your operations continue to run smoothly and that your business is in a position to meet liabilities from the specific risks you face.
