Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handsome John Deere 42 in. 24 cu. ft. Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper
This lawn sweeper actually exceeded my expectations. It actually picked up all the sticks, pine straw and pine cones in my yard. The yard cleaning usually takes all day using a rake and blower but now it only takes about 2 hours. Best money I have spent in a long time. But, it did take my wife and I longer to put the sweeper together than it did to clean the yard. We labeled the assembly project "marriage therapy."

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jm Does a good job.
Not that difficult to assemble. I liked that the small parts were clearly labeled and sealed in a plastic skin, much easier to find the correct nut and bolt this way.. Note: Mine came with a velcro piece with a peal away glue back that you stick on your tractor to hold the rope handle. Do not rely on this, mine came off right away and the rope ended up tangled around the paddles in the first 10 minutes. Also, there are some metal burrs on the inside of some of the tubes that make it difficult to fit tubes together. You just have to talk to them and be firm about your intentions.
The first time I used it I didn't like it, was feeling kind of bad about buying it. Didn't seem to pick up very well and was constantly having to empty it.
I got the hang of it the next time I used it and it really seemed to do the job. You have to experiment with speed and height. Speed is good if possible.

This sweeper really picks up the leaves, and some acorns and twigs as well. The only reason I ranked it a "four" in ease of use is because the rope to empty the bin of leaves might be engineered better.
It's a little difficult to assemble, but not too bad. Caution...before you buy, figure out where you are going to dump all those leaves. Remember, they are not shredded or compacted. So far it is holding up well in my very bumpy yard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donb60410 Excellent Lawn Sweeper
Awesome. No need to buy a grass catcher, this does it; plus it captures leaves and sticks. It pulls grass clippings in and rolls them into a Ho-Ho a cake. Just pull the bagger string and it rolls right out. Take your time putting it together. I spent four hours because I wanted it perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Butch This is an awesome tool!
This is the best $300 I have spent! Although the assembly of the unit was a little tricky, it really only took about an hour, and storing the unit is a little onerous as it must be partially disassembled, all of that is worth it because the unit works flawlessly. It is very easy to adjust the height so that everything, including acorns, sweet gum balls and pine needles are effortlessly collected. It took less than an hour to clear our 1/3 acre yard of all debris. The only time the unit had problems picking up leaves was right after a rain, when the leaves were virtually stuck to the grass and ground. In that case, just a light raking to get the leaves up from being flat on the ground solved the problem. The unit is made in the good old U.S.A., and is a John Deere afterall! I highly recommend this for anyone who is tired of raking, as long as you have a riding lawnmower to hook it up to!

2 hour assembly is accurate.
Package is horrible, but everything arrived regardless of the condition of the box.
The pull string is useless. I get off the tractor every time I dump them to rake them into a bigger pile.
Overall I would buy this again and it is 1000 time better than raking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vern2 Good for leafs
I agree it was not that easy to put together. After it was on the lawn mower, now the adjusting started. What an ordeal! But I like it, and would recommend it. The sweep even picks up ran over, flat facing leafs, large and small. Dumping is easy. Pile of leafs and grass is getting bigger.
