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 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnB Brinly Lawn Sweeper
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.

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 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Does a great job, but....
Assembly was a bit tricky and time consuming. In my opinion the design to hold open the collection area is poor - there has to be a better way than having to bend two metal rods to keep it open! Also, you need to remove these rods in order to fold the collection area for storage. Again, I think this is a poor design and is a hassle.
Outside of the above, I couldn't be happier with the functionality of the product. I thatched my lawn and then used the product to pick up the thatch and it did an awesome job. Based on this, I'm sure picking up leaves will be a breeze.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Casper Got this to give as a gift
I have the previous model for 10 years and love it. When I needed new gears and saw an improved design for the brush elevation mechanism I was happy that Brinley made them compatible with my model , were very reasonably priced, and were very helpful over the phone.
My son-in law borrows mine every few weeks, so this purchase was a Christmas present. He has not assembled it yet. My Home Depot would have assembled at no charge but I wanted him to have the fun.
I noticed this new model has an improved design for brush elevation. I know he'll be happy with it.
He was delighted with the gift, having used mine for the past year.
