Product Review: Garden Weasel Gatherer Pro

 The Garden Weasel Gatherer Pro is a tool that is used to pick up nuts such as Pecans, Hickory Nuts, Acorns, etc.  I bought this product for Sarah for Christmas last year because it looked like something that would save alot of time in the fall.  Yes, I am romantic like that and I buy wife nut gatherers!  Luckily for me, I have a wife who likes that sort of thing!

To be honest I was a little skeptical about how it would work.  I bought it on Amazon and paid just under $50 for it.  If it worked, that would be well worth the price, if it didn’t, then I know I really am a sucker for a good infomercial.

It arrived from Amazon in a box almost big enough to fit a refrigerator in, which was fine with me as this would allow me to have the biggest box under the Christmas tree.

On Christmas day after we finished opening gifts, we took the Garden Weasel outside and gave it a try.  We were very pleasantly surprised.  It definitely beat our expectations.  Sarah was able to collect a 5 gallon bucket of pecans in about 10-15 minutes.  This will definitely be a time saver.

I would highly recommend this product for anyone who has multiple nut trees. I would not recommend it if you have a very large area, but for our 4 pecan trees this will definitely save us some time.  In fact, I will probably buy another one in the future….come to think of it Sarah’s birthday is coming up, I hope she wants another one!

Here is a video of it in action.

We'd love to hear your comments!
