Questions & Answers

what is the best way to empty the hopper

Asked by: BOB
That one can be tougher than you think. Depends on how much you load it. It can get quite heavy with Mulched leaves/clippings. Just back it up to a drop spot and go behind and lift it up manually. The rope pull works, but only for lighter loads.

is this unit have fully ajustable height controll

Asked by: devilleless
Yes but there is a design flaw in some of the units that causes the height control to drop on it's own. Myself I use a cheap pair of Vise Grips to hold the bar in place.

how fast does it have to be pulled to work

Asked by: oleman
Use a moderate speed which will allow the brushes to sweep the debris into the catch bin. This will avoid having to go back over the area numerous times.

does it pick up gravel? (pushed from road by snow plow)

Asked by: drd
yes it does indeed pick up gravel. I have the same exact problem with plow throwing rocks up into my front yard, so every spring I've had quite a chore raking the gravel back out to the road. This John Deer 42" lawn sweeper ended my rock raking days. There is however one problem to be aware of. Closer to the road is a ton of gravel...yeah I mean a ton. Rocks weight a lot so I usually only make one pass across the front of lawn closest to the road and have to dump before it gets too heavy. It does take a few passes to get most of the rocks and gravel swept up but this still beats the work of raking them. I have had one other brand that was very disappointing for acorn sweeping. So since I have a lot of oaks here I sold it after two seasons of too many baby oaks sprouting in the yard. This is a good sweeper for sticks, rocks, gravel, acorns, mushrooms. I don't use it for leaf pickup at all, that's just a side benefit of picking up the acorns and sticks.

Customer Reviews

42 in. 24 cu. ft. Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 218.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor wheel gear design leads to early and excessive wear The wheels have a plastic-toothed gear that drives a metal gear attached to the shaft that turns the brushes. Metal gears meshing with plastic gears reduces the life of this product to months. Since both wheels are gear-linked to the shaft that rotates the brushes any turns causes one wheel to attempt to move faster than the other thereby causing tremendous wear on the plastic wheel gears. Since turning is inevitable, the accelerated wear on the wheel gears is also inevitable. The teeth on the plastic wheel gears are "eaten away" by the metal gear attached to the shaft and in a short time, the wheels will not turn the brush shaft. Purchase this product knowing that you will replace the wheels every few months.

It was delivered in a completely smashed up box with sweeper damaged inside. I was baffled as to how a company would have allowed shipment. Wished I took a picture. Took it back to my local store and was advised to re-order and tell them to give me an additional 20% off for inconvenience. We'll see. I'm a little iffy as to if I would right now that for fear that I may receive same item back.

When it arrived, my son and I began to assemble it and noticed the main support bar was bent and the brushes would hit it so i took it back to the nearest Home Depot and ordered another. We unboxed the new one and it was missing the lift handle so I took it back and didn't order a replacement. For a product nearly $400 you would think there would be better quality control..

The first one lasted me about 3-4 years and did a nice job of sweeping up the clippings, as does this one. I really like the product. The only drawback for me is that is arrives in pieces and needs to be put together, so had to have someone do that for me. It would be nice to have it delivered all put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lawn Sweeper Very good lawn sweeper. Assembly is relatively easy. If you know what a lawn sweeper is for, you can figure out the assembly! In fact, the nuts and bolts were partioned in the packaging to match the step-by-step instructions! The "bag" has a higher pivot point than most other sweeps which makes dumping much easier.
