Everybody makes a 5 or 9hp chipper vac these days, they really grind up that kind of debis with ease......now its a funky mulch for your beds.......CK e-bay for a used 1 if you dont want ta spend the $7-900 bucks for a new one
Thanks for the replies! We have some pecan trees, and they make a tool for picking up pecans. Acorns are smaller and the pecan pickers won't pick them up. I was hoping my new Scag with the grass catcher attachment would be able to suck them up, but it doesn't. I only have one oak tree, so I think I'll just rake them for now.
I have a 48" Agri-Fab that I picked up at Home Cheepo to use in my yard. I does a great job at picking up acorns and hickory nuts. Just put it on the lowest setting. It's almost like dethatching....the anount of debris it picks up is amazing.
