PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # STS-42LXH

Internet # 205123789

Store SKU # 276941

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.

Plastic stripped gears

This question is from 42 in. 20 cu. ft. Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper
Asked by

October 18, 2015
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.

Answer: 
Interesting no response from Brinly! Had one company say that the plastic on metal gears was Industry standard. How about Brinly taking a step above Industry standard and produce a product that the consumer will flock to too make a purchase and leave their competitors behind.

That's a good point! They should have used all metal gears in the first place.
I've got to tell you though, I've used mine a lot and I haven't had any problems so far although I know it's inevitable. But like any mechanical device, you have to take care when using it or parts will fail prematurely. If the machine jams, stop and clear the jam, don't keep going hoping that it will fix itself, that's how Read More

The gears look fine. I have tried several heights and they brushes work the same way on each setting. They start to work then stop and then start again. But they are not picking up very much.

Answer: 
Pull the wheel, your wheel is stripped out. You can order new wheels from Brinley for 72.00 and it will do the same thing. Metal gear in a plastic wheel. Will never work.

Answer: 
Hi Pinky,
You can first try to use a light a 3N1 oil or WD40 on the Dowel pin part number R-2261
If could be possible that the pins are sticking to the brush axle. If this does not fix the issue then the metal pinion gear and the dowel pins are more than likely stripped. Cost for both sides of the metal pinion gears and two dowel pins is $8.45 plus shipping and can be ordered online at

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't reach the ground! First of all, the instructions are horrible! It took hubs and I forever to put this together, and we had to back up and redo some parts because the instructions were not clear. We measured, hooked it up to our mower and the darn brushes didn't even touch the grass. It did a horrible job! Ended up taking it back to the store. There's 4 hours of my life I'll never get back! :/ go with another brand. April 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Back Saver I had one for 15 years but this one is much better. April 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not waste your money Bought this upon opening thought the quality of the catch bag was a little flimsy (light rip stop vinyl). While assembling discovered the bottom seam was pulling apart (about 6"). Returned it and will spend the extra money and get a higher quality unit. April 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product The sweeper works better than expected. I am in my sixties and have a large yard . It did in two hours what would have taken days. Great product March 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by doesn't last after 1 season the drive gears failed and are expensive to replace. the drive wheels are plastic and poorly made. April 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very Poor Instructions; average to below average product Instructions are absurd. I received mine and it was clearly a return from someone who had only made it through the first step (I can tell bc the one thing the manufacturer did do correctly was to organize the bolts etc as you would need them). I am very handy. The instructions are absurd. There are parts that are not mentioned to be used anywhere in the instructions (all of the section 8 parts I believe). The diagrams are terrible - you can/t see or tell what part is what. None of the larger parts are numbered at all. Etc. Honestly, I would find it hard to imagine if you took 100 average people and asked them to put this together more than half would succeed. Anyway, I was in that half that got the thing together, It works ok. Only ok. The corded lift is a great idea but in practice doesnt work well. Even on the lowest settlings the thing doesnt really get down into sweeping up everything - it leaves a lot. The settings are a pain to change. It doesnt do leaves great. Much of what is picked up doesnt make it into the bin. Etc. Wish I could have returned it but I had the thing half built before realizing I should have done what the owner did before me and bailed at step one when you realize nothing is going to go together easily. March 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better than Expected Assembly took a little guesswork but well worth it. Picked up pine cones, pine needles, walnuts, sticks etc. yard looked very nice after a couple swipes. Using proper height adjustment makes a difference. only dropped one star due to assembly. March 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works really good but... During construction the plastic bag tore right at the seam where its stitched to the hard plastic bottom. The two metal support rods won't stay in the holes; they came out numerous times when dumping. Overall for me the actual sweeping mechanism works great and it even got up stubborn hickory nuts with a couple passes. To boot the sweeper detached my grass so no need to do that. March 12, 2016
