Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tim Great product
Very well made product, strong and holds a lot of grass clippings. The only con that I have is the pins to hold the bag on are difficult to get on and off if you remove the bag to store it as I do.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by paguy not worth the price
this unit works great till the plastic wheel bushings wear then the drive wheel wobbles and the plastic gear cast into the wheel strips replaceing is easy but ording parts paying shipping and then in two years having to replace everything again For a losy 10 bucks they could have made the bushings out of steel then nothing would ever fail I guess the only thing steel about this sweeper is the mfg name

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by m4028 Great product for cleaning up debris in yard
The only reason that this product isn't rated as excellent is because it arrived bent. It wasn't anything that we couldn't hammer out. It leaves our yard free of small sticks, grass clippings, and leaves!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Calibrator Excellent build quality. Works great!
The product took about an hour to assemble. I only needed by wife's assistance when putting in the two flexible bars in the rear of the hopper bag. Otherwise the installation was very straight forward. It fit together well. My backyard debris consisted of: many oak tree sticks, lots of acorn and hickory nut shells, and some oaks leaves left over from the fall. There was a lot of this debris in my backyard. Well, I have to say that this lawn sweeper is excellent! I had to make a few passes over the nut shells because some were embedded deep. But after a few passes the lawn was swept clean! It picks up sticks fairly well but they also take a few passes. If the sticks are not aligned perpendicular to the brushes the brushes can't pick up the sticks because they simply slide right over them (nothing to grab). If the sticks are aligned perpendicular to the brushes they easily flop into the hopper! Leaves are a breeze. Your hopper will quickly fill with leaves. It is easy to empty the hopper. I emptied the hopper 7 times full of sticks, nut shells, and leaves. It's worth the money! If the brushes wear out over time they are user replaceable. It would have cost me $275 to hire a crew to clean up what I just described. So, what took me about 2 hours, this sweeper has already paid for itself!

Good product, excellent value.
I tow it behind my lawn tractor and it leaves my lawn looking like a golf course! I have used this for a few seasons, and still no complaints-especially with leaves, pine needles, small twigs, and heavy grass clippings. I dont even have to get off of my tractor to dump it!
Although, after the second year of use, I noticed that the wheels were "cocked inward." After taking them off to find out why, I found that the PLASTIC wheel bearings that had worn out.
I wrote the manufacturer, suggested metal wheel bearings, and had free new replacement parts within a week.
For value, performance, manufacturer support, and durability I'll give it a 9 out of 10!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JT Not as good as you think
For the price, I would think the quality would be better. Some of the connections are with cheap clips. Said connections came apart on the first use. I had to replace them with bolts. The basket is held on by pins that are impossible to get out easily (they should come out easily so the basket can be removed... easily). I had to grind the pins down so that they could be removed and inserted. Also, the brushes are straight on this model, not rotary like you see on the models sold by Northern Tool. I was not aware of this prior to purchasing. I thought I was getting the rotary brushes (better).
Does an alright job, but just not worth the price tag.
