I just bought a second one and am sending it as a gift. This product is better than sliced bread! I used it to gather walnuts and discovered it also does a great job picking up apples.

I took a chance on this and I’m amazed at how well this works. It makes picking up the enormous amount of drop apples from the yard. I’m not sure how well it would work on apples in tall grass or rotten apples, but it’s perfect for the recent drops. One of the most useful, sturdy tools that I own! It really is fun to use!

I use this tool for picking up the nuts/seeds from a sweet gum tree. It picks up most of the nuts with one sweep, but sometimes does not. This normally depends upon how far down into the grass the nut is embedded. However, it sure beats picking them all up by hand. The tool is also difficult to empty, unless I am doing something wrong: no instructions were included.

Windfall Apples a Breeze on wrote

I purchased the Large Pickup Wizard with the sole purpose of making picking up Windfall Apples easier. It worked SO MUCH better than I had even hoped for! So long as the apple wasn't completely rotten they popped into the cage without any fuss - in fact it was so much easier and faster to pickup with this tool that I purposefully shook the tree to knock down all the rest that were no good. Would gladly purchase again!

Worth Every Penny on wrote

My wife and I had debated purchasing a Pickup Wizard for years now. In that time, every one of the dozens of Black Walnut trees around the perimeter of our farm has grown exponentially - producing more and more walnuts each and every year. The Pickup Wizard is literally worth every penny. It is an incredible time - and back - saver. We should have bought the Pickup Wizard years ago. We have no complaints. The Pickup Wizard for large fruits and nuts works well with black walnuts, shellbark hickories, and large crabapples. The black walnuts are easiest to capture while they are still freshly fallen - green and intact. The nuts can still be picked up after they have separated from their husks but it's a much dirtier task. Ideally, it would be advantageous to use the Pickup Wizard two to three times per week. But, even using it just once a week, prior to mowing, it works incredibly well and saves an enormous amount of time. We will definitely be purchasing one for everyone in the family.

Bought this gadget to help with cleanup of Black walnuts and sweet gum balls. It is AMAZING! Sure beats a rake & shovel. Little effort required. Picks up walnuts still in their stinky husks & out. Also good at grabbing sweet gum balls out of my grass. The gadget sent along to empty the thing is also helps make the job quick & easy. Well made, good quality.

So far, I like it very well. It makes cleaning up under 3 standard Apple trees much faster and less stress on my back. So far it is standing up to the punishment of heavy use.

Works....really on wrote

I was skeptical about this product. I’ve been picking up the spiked balls that drop from five mature sweet gum trees for 25 years. This worked with as much effort as vacuuming your carpet. The downside is the tool fills up fast and requires frequent emptying.

works really good way better than i thought it would. the cage part could a little bigger in diameter but other than that it works really good.

Works really good. You want empty when gets full though if ya don't they start to fall out when a black walnut gets stuck between the bars.

It Actually Works....But... on wrote

This device actually works great for picking up walnuts. The threading that allows you to attach the basket to the handle was not correctly cut and I had to re-cut the receiving threads with a tap and die kit.

I have a black walnut tree that drops thousands of nuts every year. It was a back breaking job to rake and shovel the nuts. This tool is worth every penny, picks up nuts with ease and no bending over.

it is a great tool for picking up the walnuts but, the tines on the basket on mine like to get twisted together. i have had mine for three years, and it just finally broke. the part that broke was where the arms that hold the basket to the pole snapped.

This is the best thing since sliced bread. It works great on walnuts. It will pick up walnuts that have been mashed in the ground after it gets a little weight in the cage.

Greatest tool ever for picking up Walnuts on wrote

My neighbor has a walnut tree on our fence line which drops walnuts in my yard. I have tried several methods of picking up these walnuts and none worked very well. I just received the Nut Wizard item #NWW and it is the greatest invention that I have found. First, it picks up the walnuts laying on the ground with ease and after it picked up a few of the loose nuts, it would get the ones that the mower had mashed in the ground. It appears when it gets a little weight in the rolled it will flip the buried ones out of the ground and pick them up. Of course there are a few that I have to flip out with my foot but not many. empting the wizard is even easier that it appeared in the video. I can easily empty it with one hand.

BEYOND FANTASTIC PRODUCT!!!!!! on wrote

I'm a 75 year old woman with a huge black walnut tree in my yard that produces a huge quantity of nuts every year. With bad knees and back to match, picking up the nuts has become a real hardship. I saw this product, read the reviews and figured I'd take a chance to see if this truly was as wonderful as everyone was saying. It is BEYOND wonderful - its totally effortless to pick up and dump the nuts! Just hold the handle, walk around and it picks up the nuts!!! Bless the inventor! This is worth every single penny and then some! THANK YOU!

Nut Wizard saves time, energy & your back on wrote

I have a Liquidamber tree that produces hundreds of golf ball size seed balls. I've used everything from a rake to a shop vac to pick them up, but since they fall continuously from October to January, the Nut Wizard is just a marvelous invention that's handy to pick up these messy pods. I used the small Nut Wizard to pick up these seed pods, but the larger one is great for apples and oranges. If you buy one, you will certainly wonder why you didn't buy one sooner. It's well made and I've had the small one for over ten years and it's just like new. That's the pros of this item and I don't have any cons. I love tools that make my life easier.

Great back saver! on wrote

The large nut tool is super! It really does a great job on black walnuts. We always dreaded this time of the year and the back breaking job of cleaning up the walnuts, but this tool makes it an easy job. It picks them up in flower beds and even among the iris. We recommend this tool; it is definitely worth the cost.

This tool is great! For years I have crawled around in the grass, bent over, and gotten brown stained hands picking up black walnuts. This tool has saved my knees and back. It works just as well on apples.

Nut Wizard is THE Best Tool for Black Walnuts!!! on wrote

We have several large Black Walnut trees on our property and picking up nuts is a real chore. Nut Wizard makes it fun and bushels of walnuts can be removed from the yard in a very short time. Best tool I've purchased this year! Do not hesitate to buy it.

VERY Pleasantly Surprised!!! on wrote

Ordered it by phone-the representative said she had a friend that had used it and it worked-bought it still being a little skeptical... it worked wonderfully. Have been hand picking up thousands of walnuts every year-this will certainly help save the back. The dumper works very well with a straight edged pail. Just wish it would pick up the pieces of the broken ripened ones that fall. Would consider buying another so two people could work at one time.

I use the Wizard to pick up black walnuts; absolutely unbeatable. I can actually keep up with the harvest and that enables me to process many more nuts. Just looking at it, you'd never guess how well it works!

The Nut Wizard's Fantastic on wrote

We've got an enormous Pig nut Hickory tree by the side of our driveway which produces a huge supply of pig nuts every August. They are hard, heavy, bright green nuts almost the size of golf balls. (It hurts when they plunk you on the head!) Until I bought the Nut Wizard it was nearly impossible to pick them up and they make an unsightly, dangerous mess on the driveway. But all my problems were solved with the Nut Wizard. It collects all the pig nuts (on both the driveway and the lawn) quickly, by simply rolling over them, with no fuss, and allows you to dispose of them as quickly as you pick them up. The only ones who don't like it are the local squirrels who have now been deprived of their usual August fare!

Nut Wizard - 2 thumbs up on wrote

This Nut Wizard is BETTER than sliced bread! I have only 1 black walnut tree but it's over 100 years old and really produces lots of nuts annually. It's always a chore to bend over and pick these nuts up, hard on the back to keep bending over. Wish I'd found this years ago!

Item # NWW - Performs Better than expected! on wrote

We have many black walnut trees on our property. In years past, the neighbors children wanted to pick them up - they were young and enjoyed getting some $ for the nuts cashed in at a local business. This year, we decided to pick them up ourselves. The nut wizard is incredibly efficient and easy to use. It's definitely a "wizard".

Loved It!! on wrote

I bought the Nut Wizard to pick up apples off the ground in our apple orchard. First let me say I and my employees LOVE IT. I even bought one for my parents. It makes their job 10 times faster.You don't get a back ache from bending down all of the time. The only thing I didn't like was that sometimes the tines can cut through the skin on the apples.

Nut Wizzard on wrote

This new tool is a back saver. Just roll the ball over the nuts and it picks them up. It doesn't pick up nuts in long matted grass or that have been stomped into the ground, but other that that is worked well. It was easy to use, so easy in fact that the children wanted to do it. It is not easy to find a job little ones will stick with but they all wanted a turn and I just had to point them in the right direction.

Nut Wizard is worth every penny on wrote

I had already owned the small Nut Wizard which worked very well but didn't hold many of the picky balls from my liquidamber tree. The larger one that I purchased a couple of months ago works just as well and has a big capacity. I had ordered two of the large units and gave one of them to a relative for Christmas. He loves it. He says it's the best thing since sliced bread! So,if you've got picky balls, nuts, or golf balls this is something you'll never be sorry you got. It saves a lot of time and it also saves your back!
