Leaf picker-upper, Silly but works slick.


FOUR years ago, I bought this at a thrift store for $2. It looked so silly I never even tried it. BUT a few days ago I had a gigantic pile of leaves to stuff in bags and just for kicks I tried it. I WAS AMAZED at how good it worked and so very simple and easy... and exceedingly fast. 
...It's called a "Garden Grabber", by Grabber International, 15 Lesmill Rd #8, Don Mills Onterio Canada. Model M3B-2T3
.
BTW it works good on mulched leaves too...
OR
use it to feed a Chipper/Shredder... super fast.

The folds should be a bit shorter than a credit card so the folds do not extend beyond the credit card.



The folds should be staggered so each fold is not directly over the previous fold, that way it will fold a bit flatter.
