This is probably one of those questions that make people groan. I did a search, but couldn't find anything. I have a potential customer who says his most dreaded job is cleaning up acorns. Can acorns be cleaned up by a vacuum or is there some other method? (Besides raking).

If I remeber right, people used to pay for Acorns. Was a good price per pound too. No idea who still does or what they did with them.

in some cases u can mow it,then lower your blades and put double blades on with highlifts and gators or mulchers. my mower will completly sweep
the acorns and turn them into little bits.i would only advise this low cut early . also fescue is what i deal with mostly so check with your agri store,to see if your grass will tolerate a 2 inch cut.
with doubles this would be 13/4 inch high.
also be advised that u will need high rpm capability to create enough suction.i turn in excess of 3700.

Try a wide landscape rake,saves a bunch of time,back drag them onto a tarp.:cool: northeast
