Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobO Check out the before and after photo!
--The box is long and heavy but fit in a Hyundai Santa Fe with one back seat down.
--Assembly took me (by myself) about 30 minutes.
--Instructions were sorta hard to follow but the nuts and bolts were well packaged so you know which ones you need easily -just start at the top of the package and work your way down.
--There are pole connections within the "hamper" you'll think need screws for but don't.
--The hamper is light and easy to attach to the sweeper
--The hamper dumps leaves easily with the pull string without dismounting the tractor.
--The sweeper works so well that you need to dump the hamper almost too often.
I love this product and even though I didn't want to spend $250+ to avoid raking I've found its worth every penny!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fallcleanup 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by BamaBoy Satisfied customer
I recently purchased a Brinly tow-behind lawn sweeper and I was impressed with the speed of delivery, the care taken in packaging and the quality of the product. Once assembled, it does a good job -- exactly as advertised. I have nearly three acres of leaves and pine needles and it is a reliable tool to have. My only complaint would be that the assembly process was difficult and the instruction booklet was confusing. It is important to match the parts exactly to the pictures provided or you will find yourself in trouble. Also, when I discovered a video on how to assemble the sweeper, it offered suggestions that were slightly different than the instruction book. One good thing was that during the assembly process, I learned new cuss words.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Preacher Great Product BUT difficult to assemble
I recently bought mine from Home Depot and began trying the cumbersome task of assembling it. I really don't consider myself a complete dummy but it took us (my wife and I) about 9 straight hours to complete the assembly process. IT'S CONFUSING, to say the least. There are some things that I feel could make the process easier, 1) Write the manual to pertain to only the model that is purchased; 2) Have seperate hardware cards for each model and 3) put number stickers on the parts so that they can be more easily identified. This is really a great product and works great once it is finally assembled. If I ever have to buy another one, I will have the store to put it together for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sabrina Tow Behind Lawn Sweeper
I bought the Lawn Sweeper for my husband's birthday about 12 years ago. This year, Feb. 2015, we had to replace the hamper. This is the first time anything has been replaced on the sweeper. My husband loves the sweeper. It picks up pine needles and the little balls that are produced from Sweet Gum trees. It was a little pricey 12 years ago but well worth the cost. Easy to use. It unloads the hamper easily.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DKpt Plastic wheel gears WILL fail!
I purchased last spring and the wheel gears have already stripped out with less than 5 hours of use. When it works, it does a good job, but not worth the bargain. Spend the extra and get a sweeper DESIGNED to SWEEP. You will end up spending it on new wheels anyways like I will have to...

The Brinly lawn sweeper is living up to all that it was advertised to be and more.
I have used it several times in the last week and it performs great.
The assembly was a little difficult but if you follow the instructions to the letter the assembly will go smoothly and in good time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John Right choice
Could not find a floor model to compare with a cheaper model at another store. Went to a couple web sites. Chose this because of video looked well built. Was not wrong. Before putting together watch the utube video then read instructions. Instructions were somewhat difficult although well put together. Took about 3 hours of poking around, a little confusion and an hour of help from my grown son to get it together. I have about 1 1/2 acres of grass thatch was heavy in some areas. Thatched it then swept it. The sweeper did an outstanding job. Had borrowed a sweeper before, this one left no thatch residue I think the offset brushes made a big difference. Going to take it my sons today.
