Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by quality1 Very Good Push Broom
No doubt about it, it is a heavy duty push broom for outdoor use. It is well constructed and USA assembled of imported components. It is a bit heavier than most brooms due to the metal support brace. Yes, one does need some extra muscle in which to use, but it does get the job done. It was a bit heavier for my wife to use, so I guess I will be the one using it. The bristles are more aggressive so as to provide a better cleaning ability especially fine dirt. Compared to our 20-30 year resident push broom it does a nice job. But as previously stated, it does require some additional muscle power to use. And yes, becuase of the cleaning ability, it is recommended. It is warranted for 5 years against wearout. The manufacturer does make several versions of this broom in various bristle stiffness.
For what it's worth, perhaps the bracket stiffener could be made out of a lighter material in order to cut out the mass weight.

This push broom is well constructed and is designed for rough surfaces. It is somewhat heavy which is why it is made for these types of surfaces. I brought the broom primarily for sweeping the street in front of my home which collects with quite a bit of sand and leaves. Between the irrigation system overspray and rainfall I’m able to sweep the wet sand and leaves into collectable piles. I tried doing this with a softer bristle broom and found I left quite a bit of debris behind with each pass. I highly recommend this push broom.
