I've used mine mostly scooping up pine cones and it really does the the trick with those. I had some acorns left over from last year and it was able to pick those up without a problem. Assembly was easy.
This attachment is amazing. I have 2 large oak trees in my front yard that do nothing but drop acorns. Used to rake and shovel all the time. It has saved me so much time and effort.
I received this as a gift for Father's Day and so far it works quite well. Just used it after some recent storms to collect the debris the fell from my trees.
I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He loved it. Fits right in with his other garden gadget collection.
