Today we will talk about a product that many of our fellow readers are interested in: the Garden Weasel Nut Gatherer. We believe this is an item that will make a great addition to any homestead owner’s yard or patio, especially if gardening is your passion because it’s sturdy, durable and easy to use.
Before moving on with our review, we’ll provide you with a few useful tips on how to actually use the Garden Weasel Nut Gatherer. The logic is quite simple. It works as a rolling instrument, so all you have to do is perform rolling, to and fro movements — as simple as that! Stop when you are done for the day, have gathered all the nuts, or filled your container. To empty the recipient (container), simply place it above any other, separate container of your choosing, and shake the tool.
This handy device works for gathering all sorts of nuts, such as pecans, hickory nuts, black walnuts or large acorns. But don’t think that it’s limited to nuts! According to satisfied customers, the Garden Weasel Nut Gatherer can also pick up crabapples, pine cones, seed heads, shotgun shells as well as other items of this sort.
Now that you know the basics, it’s time for you to get acquainted with the pluses and minuses of purchasing this product.
Like any other tool out there, Garden Weasel surely has its pluses and minuses. Here are some of the most important ones:
While this is, without any doubt, a reliable and sturdy product, the tool has some disadvantages, too. Some users may regard the blemishes serious and even irritating. However, from an objective perspective, we can say that the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Users of the Garden Weasel Nut Gatherer are granted lifetime warranty, which is definitely an aspect that shouldn’t be neglected when purchasing a product. Using the tool is simple and intuitive; apart from the fact that there is no emptying mechanism, everything seems to be right in place.
One of the most annoying issues that we noticed when putting the device to the test is that it fails to work on small-size nuts, as is the case with tiny acorns. But, to look on the bright side, it does a wonderful job with bigger nuts, like pecans. So, when making a choice, you should really consider how you plan to use the device. If you don’t think you’ll have to pick up a lot of small nuts, we think you should go for it and buy the tool. On the other hand, if your budget allows you, it might be a good idea to purchase a pro model. But considering the price range and the features, our verdict is that the standard model of the Garden Weasel Nut Gatherer is quite a good bargain!
