"Tube Scoop" Picks Up Walnuts
Made from 4-in. dia. thin wall plastic pipe, the scoop measures 36 in. long and is capped at one end. An A-shaped aluminum pipe handle is bolted to the ends of the pipe. Yewell simply pulls the tube along the ground to scoop up nuts.
“It’s easy to use and saves a lot of time. I can make 2 or 3 passes without any walnuts falling out,” says Yewell. “I don’t have to bend over at all. It’ll hold about 40 walnuts, which is a lot more than commercial wire basket scoops can hold. When the scoop is full I just dump the nuts into a bucket.”
