    I am in the process of writing a estimate for a customer. They would like their lawn dethatched and cleaned up. My question is will the ultra vac pick up walnut shells and other nut shells or not? Customer says that they usually rake the shells up but do not want to spend the money to have us rake them up. Any suggestions??:confused:

    Great questions!

    The simple answer is yes. If the deck will lift them the the vac will bag them. But be sure and where your hearing protection because they're going to make some racket inside the deck. Just watch out for squirrels.

    Naw, it will handle the squirrels also. You'll probably need a high lift blade to get enough airflow to pull them up.
