Paulding Soil and Water Conservation District
Many of you maybe wondering what in the world is a nut wizard. A nut wizard is a convenient tool that will take the effort out of gathering nuts off of the ground. This tool will help you clean up your yard of fallen nuts, seeds or even apples with ease. It is even capable of retrieving golf balls or used ammunition at the shooting range. The nut wizard is easy to operate and takes little effort without the backbreaking pain of picking nuts and seeds that fall in your yard. This product is durable and comfortable to use. It works in grass or uneven ground. It weighs around three pounds and comes with a dumper that can be placed over top of a five gallon bucket or trash can for each collection of the nuts or seeds. The nut wizard is made up of four parts. It contains a comfortable to use handle, a metal basket, a bail, and a dumper. To use this tool, aim the arch of the basket that touches the ground toward the nuts, balls, or used ammunition you would like to gather. You do not need to apply downward pressure when you use the nut wizard. Putting pressure on the basket will cause the wires to spread apart and may damage the basket permanently. Roll the basket a complete rotation to pick up the nuts, seeds or balls, so that any object held between the wires will be put inside the basket. Twist the basket to one side or the other as needed, and remove sticks immediately to prevent damage to the basket. Experiment with how fast you roll the tool. Going too slow can cause objects to stick between the wires; going too fast could throw them out. Do not rake items into a pile before using your nut wizard tool. Do not overfill the basket; empty it before it gets completely full. Then simply use the dumper to collect your items in a trash can or bucket. It will not only save you time but also the stress on your back. If you would like more information about the nut wizard or are interested in this item. Please visit the Paulding SWCD office at 503 Fairground Dr. for more information or a demonstration of how the item works.
