“I noticed this year that my wife Teresa was having a little more trouble bending over to complete the spring pine cone cleanup around our place. Being a very helpful fellow, I went right out to my shop to make something to help her,” says Paul Tierney, Bloomington, Minn.
“I welded up a dustpan-shaped box out of sheet metal. I secured it to a broken shovel handle so it’s nice and light. She can now push cones into the pan with her foot and dump them into a bucket, all without bending.
“She loved it and had the yard cleaned up in no time.”
