Anybody got any tips for getting a ton of acorns cleaned up? I know to rake put in barrel and dump but was wondering if anyone has anything better.

Thanks

Maybe an HPV?

Squirrels? Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

I used a Little Wonder HPV vac last year and it did a good job of removing acorns. You just had to go slow and the bag filled up very quickly.

I've done this one time before. RedMax 8000. Blew them into a pile but that's about the best option I had.

P.S. I like the signature:)

If you have astrong blower you can pile them then vac them up or shovel.

I would go the blower route. Se about renting one of the 10hp or bigger ones, they will make the 8000 look like a light breeze.
