A little skeptical before purchasing but this is one slick tool for picking up walnuts, acorns. very easy to use and works as described. Read 1 review saying that the wheel is hard to empty but not true. Using the frame supplied, attached to a bucket, you can empty the wheel easily and quickly. Much easier than trying to rake up or pick up by hand.

love my pickup wizard on wrote

I bought a large pickup wizard several years ago and love it. This year one of my black walnut trees had little nuts that would not stay in the large wizard. This small one does the trick. These tools save a lot of bending and are much easier and quicker than picking the nuts up by hand.

I was a little skeptical, but quickly found that this gadget really does the job. I picked up a 5 gallon buck of acorns and hickory nuts in about 20 minutes and found it to be much less effort than using a rake and shovel. I would recommend it if you have a nut problem.

Would be nice to get a little tip on attaching basket to pole for initial attachment. Basket easily unscrews from pole while dumping, but electricians tape cured that problem. Saved many hours of picking up crab apples and still is - over 50 pounds so far - what a year.

This was a Father's Day gift for the guy who has everything. Dad has 4 oak trees in his back yard. In the fall, it is not unusual for him to rake up 6 lawn bags of acorns. This little doohickey makes the job much easier for him. He loves it. It also picks up bee covered apples that fall.

Not good for gumballs on wrote

This product does not work well on the sweetgum tree "gumballs." The gumballs stick to each other inside the little cage. Releasing them is a two-handed and sometimes bending over job. I had hoped to not have to bend over, but alas, found that using a rake and large dustpan works much more efficiently and better.

I bought the small nut wizard to address the huge number of nuts dropped from just 2 large trees...an oak & a hazelnut. It works great for the acorns. If the hazelnuts fall to the ground whole, it also works great. Trouble is, the squirrels tend to crack the hazelnuts up in the tree & drop the shells to the ground. I find that the nut wizard doesn't work as well with the cracked shells. All in all, I still think this is a great tool & am glad I purchased it. Just wish it work as well the the shells so I guess I still have to rake. :(

An Amazing Tool on wrote

The Nut Wizard works precisely as advertised. I have hickory trees and it scarfs up hundreds of nuts with little or no exertion. Passersby stop and watch in amazement as my Nut Wizard gobbles up the nuts in my driveway. It is one of the most useful yard tools I have.

Works like a dream! on wrote

I filled a 5-gallon steel bucket with acorns in less than an hour, with greater ease than walking the dog! Acorns just jump into this thing without any effort whatsoever, it is fantastic!

Extremely helpful product on wrote

I used the Nut Wizard to pick up shag bark hickory nuts, for the first time last season. It worked very well, I just wish that I had received it a little earlier in the season before the nuts came out of their shells. It is much easier to pick up the nuts when they are still inside the shells rather than gather the nuts and shell pieces (but the Wizard successfully does that, too)! It is pricey, but well constructed, and worth every penny if you have a lot of nuts/shells to gather.

Wonderful..told lots of neighbors on wrote

The nut wizard picked up, really, over 1000 acorns off our lawn. We are and continued to be impressed.

The Nut Wizard on wrote

I thought the nuts were winning, but finally I have a fast and easy way to remove acorns and hickory nuts from my lawn. Leaf blowers, shop vacs and an assortment of rakes have given way to this handy tool.

Nut Pickup Wizard on wrote

I used to spend hours picking up the tiny apple-shaped pears that fell off my two trees in the fall. It was back-breaking work and I was ready to get rid of the trees. Then I ordered the nut wizard and everything became so much easier. I love using it. It picks up the pears so easily. In no time, all the pears that have fallen are inside the wire basket. The pears are easy to remove. Can't wait to start using the wizard this year. It's really fun!!

Disappointed on wrote

Perhaps I did not get the technique right, but sadly although I very much wanted this to work my experience was more acorns remained on the ground than were captured by the basket. I've very small sized nuts which fall from my tree, so perhaps it would work better with larger acorns.

Quality and Efficiency on wrote

There are many favorable things to be said about this wonderful tool. The simplicity and efficiency of its design, the quality of workmanship, even including a dab of grease in the axle to start off its life of good work. It really performs as advertised, picking it's targets with very little effort. The ingeneous design alows for quick and easy discharge of its catch. Bravo!! to designers and manufacturer. I purchased two on my first order and they are busy at work even today. P.S. A definite bargain for the price.

Helps my dad on wrote

My husband and I bought the Nut Wizard for my 82-year old father, who has the most irritating (and fruitful) crab apple tree and completely non-functional knees! Every year it drops apples all through the year, but the driveway is most littered in the fall (now). The Nut Wizard has helped him to pick up the apples before they are squished by any vehicle which enters the driveway, and makes yard pickup unbelievably easy.

OUR PECAN PICKER UPPER on wrote

PROBABLY THE MOST WONDERFUL TOOL WE HAVE COME ACROSS. BACK BREAKING WORK THOSE PECANS. IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THE DISCOVERY OF THIS TOOL, OUR PECANS WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN HARVESTED. IT WAS A LIFE SAVER. EACH PERSON WE SHOW IT TOO IS JUST AMAZED. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS TOOL. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DISLIKE. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS TOOL. TOO BAD ALL THE PEOPLE WE SHOW IT TO DO NOT HAVE ANY NUT TREES. I HAVE SIX PECAN TREES IN MY YARD. THE NEIGHBORHOOD USED TO BE AN ENTIRE PECAN GROVE AT LEAST 100 YEARS AGO. WE HAD A BUMPER CROP IN 2010-2011 HERE IN REDDING CA. WE PROBABLY PICKED UP 500-600 LBS. THOUGHT WE COULD SELL THEM, BUT ONLY TRADED A FEW. EVERYONE ELSE WAS GIVING THEM AWAY EXCEPT FOR THE ONES WHO SOLD THEM SHELLED. WE HOWEVER DO NOT HAVE MUCH OF A CROP THIS YEAR AND HAVE A FREEZER FULL OF PECANS. I AM SURE PEOPLE WILL BEG FOR THEM THIS YEAR.

Almost too easy... on wrote

"I won't have time to shop for groceries tomorrow, I'll be out in the yard all day raking leaves and picking up acorns so I can put the lawn to bed for the winter," I said. "I bought a Nut Wizard, remember," she replied? Skeptically, I rolled the new contraption out to the yard and within seconds, I'd scooped up a quart of acorns as effortlessly as if I were walking the dog! I filled a 5-gallon stainless steel bucket to the brim with acorns in less than an hour; true story. This simple machine didn't malfunction a single time and I never bent at the waist until I had to move that heavy bucket full of acorns to the bonfire pit! The only downside was that I had to shop for groceries!

Real nut job! on wrote

I got this tool for Mom, who was hand-picking pecans from a tree Dad had planted years before passing. She LOVES it and wondered where it had been all this time. It works great, her friends have commented on what a neat tool it is. Great tool!

We have a large walnut tree that produces bushels of walnuts each year. The nut wizard is saving us time and the back breaking job of raking and picking up the nuts. We love it and it is well worth the money spent.

Nut Wizards/ Large and Small on wrote

I have actually purchased both sizes, large one for black walnuts and the small one for acorns. Both sizes work great. Two years ago we picked up over 4,000 black walnuts by hand, what a back breaker. Last year we just walked around the yard rolling the nut wizard over the walnut and in it went. It's easy to empty the basket when is full too. I've shown it to some friends and they too have purchased the larger nut wizard.
