Q: Will this unit pick up acorns, my primary reason for purchasing such a unit?
by Ray Smith from Michigan on April 08, 2015

A: Hi Ray - the Little Wonder high performance vac will pick up general litter such as paper, cans, bottles, cigarette butts, etc. It will also pick up general yard debris including grass clippings, leaves, small branches, acorns, chestnuts, sweetgum balls, small stones, etc. As to your specific question on acorns, it will handle smaller sized acorns (up to about the size of a quarter) effectively. Acorns larger than quarter sized may be an issue.

Love This Vacuum
I bought this Little Wonder HPV about 3 years ago, I use it commercially as I own a Lawn and Garden Maintenance business, I have 2 commercial properties One 6 acres and the other 5 acres, fulll of Maple trees and Oak, this has saved major time in leaf removal, I noticed many are saying the knozzle keeps hitting the ground, well it is not rocket science that is what the adjuster is for! raise it up an ich and away you go, both pavement and grass no problem at all, there is no other professional... more

My Experience
This vacuum really cleans up the yard, it is spotless when it is done.

For me, I have enough grade in the yard that it is more work for me to push the around then to just rake leaves the old fashioned way. If this were self propelled with an electric star, I would be much happier. Also, while I have just less than a half acre, this is rated for an acre or more- I can't imagine doing that much land with this vacuum.

Note: I'm a single woman, not especially strong.

Runs Great Downhill
First off, this is the first lawn vacuum that I've ever used. I rented this locally and am simply posting the review here for the benefit of others before making a purchase.

In short: the HPV works but has numerous flaws. The suction is powerful, the build quality appears to be solid, etc. However, you absolutely cannot push this thing on grass. Even on level ground, the nozzle digs in. I struggled for a half hour and in the process cut up parts of my yard trying to move forwards. Note... more
Pros: Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use

We appreciate the feedback. One thing we just are not completely clear about is whether or not you had this issue when you used the level for the nozzle. On this particular unit there is an adjustable knob on the right side of the unit which allows the operator to raise the nozzle up when being used on surfaces such as grass. The nozzle is supposed to be self adjusting, but only to an extent depending on how low the nozzle is set. It could be possible the person who rented the machine before you could have dropped it to its lowest position and was working a hard surface or they could have struggled just like yourself.

What Took Me So Long?
My house is covered in trees. In the fall, the Red Oaks shed in the spring the live Oaks shed. Oh, and then there are the acorns. I forgot to mention all the @#%^ Crab Apples that drop, rot and stink. For me, yard care is leaf and tree-trash management more than lawn mowing. I've been in this house almost 16 years. Usually, I use a blower and blow the leaves into dark corners and the street. You know, out-of-sight, out-of-mind always with the intention that I'd rake them up some day. ... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Easy To Store
Cons: Heavy, Expensive

Little Wonder Hpv Is A Major Time Saver.
I'm only posting this review because I found other peoples reviews to be so helpful, and felt I should return the favor.

My wife and I bought a house a few years ago in an older neighborhood because we wanted full grown shade trees around our house. While we thoroughly enjoy all that shade, the downside are all the leaves and acorns those trees produce.

The first year we used a leaf blower to round up the leaves in piles around the yard, then use our bagging lawnmower to pick the leaves... more

Tornado Debris Pickup
I did not purchase one of these, but did rent one of this model to clean up debris from my yard after we were hit by a tornado. We had picked up the large debris manually, but had smaller pieces of glass, wood and drywall (1") we had raked up out of the lawn with a dethatcher that we hoped a lawn vac could pick up. All-in-all, I was pretty disappointed in the performance of the unit.

Starting it was a struggle. It was a rental, but the unit appeared to be in good condition and... more
