Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gdrol 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.

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.

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

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by adk 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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Saltydawg 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.
