Walnut, hickory, pine cones & acorn sweeper

All,
Is there a lawn sweeper out there that will pick up all of these type of nuts? Any ideas?
Thanks

A Billy Goat walk behind lawn vac should work.

I've pulled an Agri-fab Lawn sweeper to pick-up nuts, branches, pinecones. It works great, lot faster than raking or blowing w/ backpack

I've used my Little Wonder High Performance Vac and have been successful in picking up all of the above mentioned items. Acorns are the hardest of them to collect if they have been trampled on or if snow has sat on them all winter. Everything else sucks up easily.
