    This is something that looks like a real time and back saver.

    I,v seen them being used and they do work . Most of the time they will pick up 90% of the hulls the first time . The only problem I have seen is people don,t take good care of them and they fall apart .

    They actually are made to pickup nuts. The company has a web site or search under nuts!

    The original application was to pick up golf balls at driving ranges.

    We have had one for years, works good. Hav-A-Ball was the name.

    Yes, they use these at Prince George's Trap and Skeet club in Maryland. If you are thinking about buying one, call Mark Biggins there and he can tell you what he thinks.

    Don't throw the empties on the ground then you wont need one. They sell hull pouches for 15 bucks every day. DB

    We've used our push model for 18 months on three skeet fields and one trap field, and it works great.... Picks up hulls (all gauges) and most 12 and 20ga. 'cushion' type wads. Also, as a side benefit, it picks up firm dog turds....EEEEEWWWW!!!!

    As long as the hulls aren't ground into the sod, it works as advertised.

    FWIW,

    Stan

    We just became a dealer for them and rent some of them out for picking up pecans. They do make several pull behind types and they are good for picking up golf balls as well. The problem with pull behinds whatever you are driving(four wheeler, tractor, lawn mower) will push some into the ground making them hard to pick up. Jackie B.
