My favorite season, fall is here and with it are the copious quantities of leaves that need to be raked. I don’t have a problem with the actual raking of the leaves; I consider it to be a free workout, but I DO have a problem picking them up. I usually try to rake when the leaves are dry if at all possible. The theory being that they are lighter weight so I’ll sweat less. Since this isn’t a perfect world, what actually happens is the leaves end up flying everywhere when I’m trying to shove them into a bag. Even if there isn’t a puff of wind, the leaves seem to have a mind of their own and go whirling away from my trash bag. And it isn’t just the leaves, the bag ends up being tossed around as well. Turns out, I’m not alone in this.
Many of us have this same issue, which is one of the reasons getting up all those fall leaves is such a headache. It would help to have an extra hand, or rather, just bigger hands to grab larger batches of leaves and scoop them into the bag faster, along with having a bag that can stay in place long enough to put them in there. Alas, those “helping hands” exist”¦the Big Wonder Scooper. This may just be the solution to my dilemma and could be for you too.
I remembered seeing this product on TV. Basically, the Big Wonder Scooper is a large plastic tube, open on both ends with a handle on one side. It works like a giant scoop, shoveling up leaves, mulch or even snow. What intrigued me the most when I first saw it was the fact that you can attach a yard waste bag to the scoop and begin shoving in the leaves with none other than a giant pair of hands, quickly and easily, literally what I’d been wishing for earlier.
Yes, while the Big Wonder Scooper is awesome enough, you can also accessorize with their enormous polyethylene Wonder Hands that look similar to rakes and act like giant salad tongs, allowing large amounts of leaves to be scooped and deposited into the scooper. Not only can this save hours of back breaking yard work each fall, but it can be used throughout the year for any number of things – including laying down that spring mulch. It really is a “wonder” of a tool!
When you purchase one Wonder Hand, you get the second Wonder Hand at half price using promotional code “GKHFALL“.
