Q.Thatch rake for horse chestnuts?

Zone Salt Lake City, UT 84119 | Anonymous added on April 13, 2020 | Answered

I have three giant horse chestnut trees in my yard. None of the rakes I have will pick the horse chestnuts up or move them much at all. We end up having to pick them up with our hands, and that will be a lifetime project. I’m wondering if a thatch rake would work better.

It takes a combination of raking with a hard garden rake into piles and then shoveling into buckets with a small scoop shovel or placing by hand into buckets.
