It is ok but time consuming. Kids love it. Using the leaf blower on acorns works better and faster. Once they are in street, I shovel them up into a bag for yard waste pick up. Much, much faster than this thing, that reminds me of the popping toy my kids used to push around the house. Actually this garden weasel is a waste of money.
Having several large oak trees on our property, we have thousands of acorns dropping in the fall. This is a great device for picking up acorns! It works in the grass, the driveway, the beach and in the water.
I have seven large oak trees surrounding my house and end up walking on acorns no matter where I go. I spend most of August and all of September picking up acorns by hand. Not any more though! This works beautifully. Roll it around in the yard and it fills itself with acorns. It even includes a piece that fits on the edge of a 5 gallon pail that allows the acorns to be quickly dumped into the pail. It has already saved me hours of time raking up acorns, stepping on the ones the rake missed and then picking them up by hand. This works and works well.
I like this, no more bending over picking up the fir cones. It holds quite a few cones too, which was great.
