Yes, you can collapse the basket if you remove the tension rods. Fold this up and stand the whole thing up against the wall in your shed or garage.

For best results, engage tractor drive at it's slowest speed when operating on slopes and always move up and down only. Never sweep across the slope face. Sweep when conditions are dry.

Works fine if your tractor has the power. On un-level ground, it can miss some stuff but that can be expected.

I have larch trees and they have tons of small very dense pine cones. It picks up these so I would think it would pick up hickory nuts. The important part is to do the brush adjustment right which is super easy.

Ohio Steel does not make a thatcher unit for this sweeper and Northern does not carry one.
The unit will sweep up pine needles but from time to time the user may have to unclog the unit when picking up pine needles.
