Product Overview

The Brinly 42 in. Lawn Sweeper is a tow-behind tractor attachment that collects leaves and grass clippings into its high-capacity 20 cu. ft. hamper. The 5:1 gear ratio results in higher tip velocity, generating more force to lift leaves and debris up off the ground and into the hamper. Consistent brush to ground contact prevents the unit from “skipping” and passing over sections of leaves and grass clippings on the lawn. By incorporating 6 brush sections, brush to ground contact is significantly improved over traditional 4 brush designs. This is accomplished by reducing “Tip Lift” the time and distance that the brushes lift off the surface of the lawn between strokes. When not in use, the patented self-storing feature allows the unit to be stored upright to minimize the required storage space. Stop raking and put your mower to work with the Brinly 42 in. Lawn Sweeper.

Customer Questions & Answers

Plastic stripped gears

Brinly states that there are two gears on each side. One plastic and one metal. Many reviewers complain of the plastic gears stripping. Brinly states that this is not a common problem yet MANY different site reviews mention it. The plastic gears are designed to ensure obsolescence so their failure is no surprise. My question to Brinly is, can a consumer upgrade to all metal gears? Do you intend to fix this problem and eliminate gear stripping? Fixing it after the sale deters me (and probably many others) from purchasing the product.
Asked by: skiouting
Of course they could use metal gears but then it would last forever and they'd be out of business.

Are the gears made of plastic or metel?

Asked by: Mac15
The pinion gear is metal. However, the drive gear is molded with the wheel and is plastic.

Has anybody used this sweeper with a zero turn? Will it pick up at the faster speeds and will it make the sharp turns?

Asked by: DlckDragon
The gears bind up and the wheels lock. You have to hit leaves going straight. My sweeper is broke right now because Brinly doesn't back up warranty and I'm waiting on replacement parts I was forced to buy from them. BEWARE

Can this (or any) sweeper be towed by a pickup truck instead of lawn tractor?

Asked by: Nickname
I would not attempt to do this truck will sit much higher than lawn mower, and speed of truck will most likely break something on sweeper.

42 in. 20 cu. ft. Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressed with the build These are very well built. First thing to know is they are packaged dry from factory so remove the wheels and grease the drive gear bushing and wheel bushings. Do that regularly and this machine should last your lifetime. I read tons of reviews before making this purchase, I now see the negative reviews had to be caused by poor assembly. If your hopper is dragging on the ground you need to readjust your hitch height, When using the sweeper make sure the bristles are only sweeping about 3/8 inch deep into the grass, There is a reason why John Deere paints this model green and puts there name on it, because it warrants a good reputation. Simple as that!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product After putting the bagger together and testing it out, I noticed that the brush only engaged when I backed up. The whole frame & wheel assembly were pre assembled and in the box, so it wasn't anything I had done myself. I ended up having to take the wheels off and swapping the clutch gear on each side. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Has lasted for 1 and 1/2 summers, bad design.... the sweeping action happens from metal against the plastic wheels. I went to see about getting new wheels as the plastic teeth are all worn off the wheels but they are 40 dollars each for plastic wheels.

I have three large oaks, three large maples, and around ten sweet gum trees on .6 acres. This sweeper made short work of the mess of leaves. seems to be of sturdy construction fairly easy for me to put together( about 1 hour) as a mechanic of 20 years. One bit of advice read the instructions fully before putting frame together. The first few pages of manual show frame assembled, if you do this you will have to take apart again to install hopper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My wife purchased this product mainly for acorns. It will pick them up but all the way to ground ... My wife purchased this product mainly for acorns. It will pick them up but all the way to ground level you. I still have to rack them into rows and then it will pick most of them up. Its the same with leaves it will leave some on the ground. If I could adjust the brushes to go lower it would help to pick up more leaves and acorns. I have lowered brushes as low as I could but would like to go lower still, any ideas? The sweeper does work and I do recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised Assembly was simple though the instructions didn't exactly match the parts list (more parts than needed) - took about an hour and a half. Picked up small and large leaves, acorns, mowed grass, and even some dog bombs. Trailer rides a little higher than my tractor but the plate adjustment fixed it. Here's hoping it lasts a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major design flaw This was by far a more durable sweeper than the agrifab that finally failed for me. I have 3 acres of leaves to pickup during the fall and need a dependable tool for the job. I read the reviews and decided to try brinly. The assembly instructions were off so we had to backup and undo a few thing to get it assembled. It worked awesome for the first 5 hours of use however, the plastic gears on both wheels completely stripped out and the unit failed. My opinion, if the problem could be resolved I would buy another one. Until then, 1.5 hrs assembly for 5 hrs of results is not the return on invested I am looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product You Will see a lot of negative reviews regarding the assembly process of this lawn sweeper. Do yourself a favor and go to YouTube and watch the assembly video. It's only seven minutes and you can pause between each step it's a lot easier. Just search for "brinly lawn sweeper"
