Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mike A sweeper that sweeps
I have 3 acres of lawn and the mower does not have a bagger system. I needed something that I could pull behind the lawn tractor and pick up the clippings. I looked around and this was rated as one of the very systems on the market. A bit pricey but it's sturdy and I was able to sweep the entire lawn.
The only fault I found and this is not a fault of the sweeper was that I could fill the bag very quickly and it seemed I was always going to the dumping grounds after just a few sweeps in the yard. I just have too big of a yard.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BigYard I should have bought this a long time ago
I feared putting this together, but it was not bad at all. Directions are clear. I did need to bring in a second person to put the two big pieces together, but it was only because it was easier that way. I think it took me an hour (I am not a fix it person). I have an acre of property and have large amounts of grass clippings that need to be collected. The property is not the smoothest and the sweeper still does a great job. I have yet to do the leaves, but the way it picks up the grass clippings I would imagine it will get the job done. The only negative would be the size of it. It needs a lot of room to store it. You can break it apart and store it but I wouldn't want that hassle. t have a large shed that it fits in so I don't have to worry about it. I should have bought this a long time ago.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by john Good for general yard clean up
I have used this yard sweeper many times and it does what I want it to do. My yard is uneven in some areas, so it sometimes does not get all the debre off the ground, but for a good general sweeping it does fine. If you have had a wrench in your hand more then once in your life it is easy to assemble, it took about 45 minutes. It will pick up little sticks and dry leaves fine. I have not tried it on wet leaves. Easy to dump. It does take up a lot of storage space. I store mine standing on its side with the catch bag removed to save some space.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by islndgrl Does the job but, oh those tension rods.
I have 2 acres of pasture/field grass I have to keep mowed. This will let me mechanically collect the grass clippings and remove them. Can't back it up to dump directly onto the compost pile, it jack-knifes, so I dump and fork onto the pile. Getting it put together was okay as long as you were methodical and read ahead in the instructions. All designed for man strength which made it harder for a woman to put together. Getting the tension rods of the hopper in place required two people and one had to be a strong man who could crawl into the hopper to get the job done. This is making my life easier.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LGguy Excellent machine and built very well
I had thought about buying other sweepers that were less expensive, but after reviewing all that was on the internet I decided to get this one even though it was more money. It is built solid. It works very well and would recommend Ohio Steel products.
