The Harvestwear Hoopbag is a simple, cost-effective, soft-walled bag ideal for use in pergola-type orchards or with fruits that aren’t easily bruised. These hoopbags will stand the test of time while offering the harvester unmatched comfort in one economical package.The hoopbag is easy to use; Fruit is placed into the bag either through the sides or between the front straps.
The bag is emptied by releasing the snaphook whilst holding on to the webbing handle. The bag is then lowered to the bottom of the bin and, as the bag is raised, the harvester moves backwards, laying the fruit in a swathe.

Features

  • The harness is padded with high density, firm polyurethane foam, providing maximum comfort.
  • The mouth of the bag is held horizontal by the harness straps attached to the front of the opening.
  • All harness straps are adjustable by means of a heavy-duty, acetal buckle.
  • The front catch is made of a non-rusting, non-swivelling brass snaphook with a convenient webbing handle attached to the ring for supporting the weight of the bag while detaching the ring.
  • PVC reinforcing to the back of the bag saves wear on the fabric where fruit rubs.
