When doing cleanups there's always those sticks that don't blow. You need to either pick them up/rake them up first or after you're done blowing or bend over and pick them up while blowing, kick them, flick them with the blower wand or whatever. I actually managed to hurt myself kicking one into the woods last season, lol, hyper extended my knee. I tried taping my handy little grabber tool to my blower tube but it was heavy and cumbersome. So here's what I did....I stuck a stick-on coat hook on the end of my blower tube. I just tried it out and it's not bad. I did have to tape it on because of the design; it's designed to slide off to allow removing it from the wall. I don't know how long it will last. If it does break I'll just put another one on or fabricate something else until I get something that works. Has anybody else done anything like this?
