The fall leaves are gorgeous but they can be a nuisance. We love them to pieces….as long as they are staying on the trees. As soon as the leaves start to fall, they cross the line from beautiful to annoying. Once you take stock of the physical toll that the raking can take on our backs, it is hard to enjoy this task. There are ways to skip around the process but it’s not always as easy as it looks.

On the other hand, there are some of us who enjoy the process. It can be a fun way to spend time with the family as well. Who doesn’t playing in the piles with their children? It’s one of the best fall activities that we can think of, hands down. Sometimes, we even get a zen feeling from raking that we do not get from other forms of yard work.

The piles are a lot of fun, but what happens when it is time to dispose of them? That process is not very “zen” at all. That’s why this man is here to provide you with a helpful way to avoid the mess. Yes, we know that you can burn leaves in certain locations. You’ll want to check the local ordinances before you do, though.

There are lots of towns and cities that have outlawed the practice and we fully understand why. But thankfully there’s an easier way to handle this chore.

FIX IT Home Improvement Channel has got all of the assistance that you need to handle this problem once and for all. The best part? It involves the usage of robohandles. They are attached to rakes that have been cut down to the proper size. The combination functions as a form of “claw arms,” making the leaf disposal process a heck of a lot easier.

We don’t throw around this term lightly, but this man is a genius. We know that you are going to have a hard time picturing this one on your own, so be sure to check out this clip.
