Reed Model #2000 Nutcracker

The previous post talked a little about the pecan picker upper that we sell. So, you have your pecans picked up. Now what? You can either crack and shell them by hand or maybe take them to a local "pecan house" to have them cracked for you.  When we have a lot of pecans we usually opt to take a feedsack full to the local cracker/sheller outfit.  For a few dollars they will crack them all for you and you can pick them up ready to shell (pick out the meats). If you are planning on cracking them yourself, it could be a tedious job. But our nutcrackers can hopefully make that job easier and faster for you.
This year we are pleased to offer the Reed Model #2000 Nutcracker for sale. It is American-Made and constructed of tough, reinforced plastic. It is light and durable.  Plus it is quite a bit cheaper ($) than other similar nutcrackers on the market. Here is a video clip of this pecan nutcracker in action.

Check out our website to buy one today, Lee Mfg Co.  Or ask for it in your local hardware or feed store.  Have a great fall!

Pecan Broom Pecan Picker Upper

Lee Manufacturing Company is moving into fall mode now. Pecans is becoming the central theme as we head into cooler weather. It won't be long until those pecans now hanging encased in a nice green hull begin to fall to the ground, hopefully without the hull! You need to start thinking about how you will go about picking up those pecans.  If you only have a small pecan tree, you will probably be able to get by with just picking them up by hand.  If you have a large, established tree or even multiple pecan trees, you will probably need to find a faster and more efficient method of picking them up from the ground.  We are proud to offer the Pecan Broom pecan picker upper for sale to all of our retail customers.  This is a top-of-the-line pecan harvester.  It has a gathering basket constructed of heavier gauge wire than most other pecan pickers. It will last longer and not be as susceptible to being bent.  In addition, it has a handle that breaks down into small sections that allow you to easily store the picker or to shorten the handle length. It works great!
As you can see in the video, it also comes with a bucket attachment that allows you to easily empty the pecans into a bucket.
The Pecan Broom with save you tons of time and help prevent a sore, aching back!
