Take the Guess out of the Nut Game

Nut harvesting is serious business.  Whether you do it for pleasure, profit or peskiness (I’m taking to you, acorn people), customers seek products that get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Therefore, it is vital that you choose the correct nut picker upper.  My last post reviewed the various handheld nut pickers available at  In my next video, I’ve reviewed exactly why choosing the correct nut picker upper is vital to your nut picking up game.  Check it out:

If you are in doubt—have no fear.  Call us at 855-743-5537.  Please know the average size of the nut you are trying to pick up.  With this information, we can advise you on the best nut roller option.

Knowing your nut size is just as important for ordering the correct Bag-A-Nut.  We find this comes into play so often when harvesting black walnuts.  We sell three different size wheels for black walnuts—1 ½” to 2”, 2 ¼” to 3” and 3 ¼” to 4”.  These wheels are available in the lengths of 18”, 36” Push and 36” Pull Behind Bag-A-Nut.

To determine the correct Bag-A-Nut unit, measure your nuts and see what your average nut size is.  With this information, we can direct you to the best option for you.

When we say expert advice, we meant it.  We welcome customer calls and emails.
