I was looking to buy a push blower definatly by the fall but this year we have gotten a lot of accorns. Last year i did a spring clean up that i got this year also but the thing is that the property has a ton of accorns. Last year i had my brother with me and i bought anouther 8001 redmax. this year i was thinking should i buy a wb blower?

Do they push accorns? or am i better off with the two blowers? I was thinking around a 8hp one. Any other suggestions to make this job easyer this year? Thanks

I find that its better to do acorns with back packs or to just rake them up. It sucks to rake but to me its the best way to get ride of them.

I can dump them on site so i can just blow them into the woods. i would fill a truck with acorns if i had to take them hahaha.

I usually just rake the acorns. A blower will move them, but its a much nicer job if you rake em.

Acorns have to raked. Major pita and everyone you miss will probably sprout a little tree.

We blow them as far as we can then power broom them into piles and pick them up.

I have two propertys that have alot of acorns and I use my BR600 to blow them into the woods. Works great.

Or bag them and sell them to the hunters. Price of apple corns are getting expensive.
