Bottom line is this works. It's designed for commercial fruit pickers (apples, pears, etc.) and will hold 80 lbs of fruit. I'm writing this review with that goal in mind. It is easy to pick into and empty. I also should withstand a significant amount of abuse. I would only give one very modest piece of advice, don't expect to load this to full capacity for two reasons; it's probably too heavy for all but the largest pickers and more important; it's going to put you at risk if you have that heavy a load on the top of a ladder.
