Product Overview

  • High speed brushes pick up leaves, sticks, and more
  • Swinging hamper with pull cord makes unloading easy
  • Locking height adjustment secures brushes in proper position
The Brinly 42 in. Lawn Sweeper is a tow-behind tractor attachment that collects leaves and grass clippings into its high-capacity 20 cu. ft. hamper. The 5:1 gear ratio results in higher tip velocity, generating more force to lift leaves and debris up off the ground and into the hamper. Consistent brush to ground contact prevents the unit from"skipping” and passing over sections of leaves and grass clippings on the lawn. By incorporating 6 brush sections, brush to ground contact is significantly improved over traditional 4 brush designs. This is accomplished by reducing"Tip Lift” the time and distance that the brushes lift off the surface of the lawn between strokes. When not in use, the patented self-storing feature allows the unit to be stored upright to minimize the required storage space. Stop raking and put your mower to work with the Brinly 42 in. Lawn Sweeper.
  • Full-swing hamper with pull cord and T-handle for easy dumping
  • 42 in. sweeping width, 20 cu. ft. hamper capacity
  • Patented upright self-storage feature
  • Durable tubular steel frame
  • Universal fit

Questions & Answers

Plastic stripped gears

Brinly states that there are two gears on each side. One plastic and one metal. Many reviewers complain of the plastic gears stripping. Brinly states that this is not a common problem yet MANY different site reviews mention it. The plastic gears are designed to ensure obsolescence so their failure is no surprise. My question to Brinly is, can a consumer upgrade to all metal gears? Do you intend to fix this problem and eliminate gear stripping? Fixing it after the sale deters me (and probably many others) from purchasing the product.
Asked by: skiouting
I am considering buying a sweeper and am researching the product. I suspect the reason for plastic gears is that because both wheels are drive wheels for each side of the brush, and because a short turning radius turns the wheels at different ratios, something will eventually give out. Plastic gears have much less replacement cost than metal gears. The only solution to this, like on your car, is a differential. That may be cost-prohibitive.

42 in. 20 cu. ft. Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 174.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from In general, this sweeper does a pretty good job. Just remember if using to pick up mowed grass, ... In general, this sweeper does a pretty good job. Just remember if using to pick up mowed grass, you have to go back around the entire yard AFTER you mow for it work, as the mower continually kicks it out of the way, unless you are mulching in place. To start with, it takes a bit to put it together. Pay attention to the directions (I know, right?) and you should be ok. All of the nuts, bolts, washers, etc come on a nice, laminated cardboard sheet, appropriately labeled so you really can't mess anything up. Putting the hopper together is not fun, and putting in the two "spring rods" seem downright dangerous, but I managed. The sweeper is of good quality materials, and used properly should last quite a while. I'm guessing the sweeper brushes will need to be replaced maybe every year, depending on how much you use it, and what you end up picking up with it. It does a good job of picking up grass that has just been mowed, but it does struggle with wet clumps. Leaves seem to be no problem either, and the occasional branch or stick gets gathered up as well. The hopper is very easy to dump, just back the sweeper up to your dump pile, and lift the whole hopper. Don't do it quickly all at once, or you will end up with a lot of clippings dumped in front of the sweeper. It holds quite a bit of clippings as well. I'm not sure how long the wheels will last, as they are hard rubber, not pneumatic, so pulling across a rocky driveway may eventually take its toll, but replacements are pretty cheap. The height of the brooms is controlled by a set of levers that take a bit of effort to manipulate, but lock each increment in so it wont move on you. It is a bit ungainly to move around without the tow vehicle, so use your legs, not your back! All in all, I really like this sweeper. I'd rate it a solid 4.5, with assembly and difficulty moving around on its own being my only real gripes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. Excellent assembly instructions. I bought this unit on Nov 2. Assembled it and picked up leaves from 3 yards (10 trees) on Nov 3. After reading the poor reviews re the terrible assembly instructions on the Home Depot website I was skeptical at first but the unit was in stock and I wanted it right away. Besides, every brand of sweeper I researched had poor reviews re assembly instructions and plastic gears, bearings, etc. I found the assembly instructions to be top notch. They even pre-package the hardware for each step in the process, something I've never come across before. I cannot understand why so many people found these instructions to be "useless". The only reason I can come up with is that they're too impatient to read and understand the ENTIRE process before starting. Once I had the unit properly adjusted (the hamper and the tow bars HAVE to be level) it worked flawlessly. I can't speak to the plastic parts issue but I'm sure they won't hold up. If Brinly sold a metal upgrade kit, I would buy it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Hard & Long time to assemble. I am sad NO ONE posted a review about assembly. Just spent 2-2... Very Hard & Long time to assemble. I am sad NO ONE posted a review about assembly. Just spent 2-2.5 hours assembling. Had I known the terrible difficulty, I would have bought the next brand that reviews said quick/easy and quality. I am a 50 yr old experienced home builder. Very difficult to put together.Impossible to assemble with printed instructions only. Brinly video helpful, a little. Video & printed instructions don't sync and contradict. Biggest problem, You will struggle, and be frustrated, trying to figure out what tube goes where. Instructions say "part # 38" but NO parts are labeled. ZERO help finding the tube part.(EASY - CHEAP Fix - Cant they put a "sticker" on the parts that are complicated to disguinish?) We're used to this from the Chinese companies, but this 100+ yr old USA company should be ASHAMED. The "catcher bag" assembly instructions will upset you most. Video tells you very little. On the positive side, engineering seems good - without using yet. BEWARE you MUST tow at 3 MPH to avoid ruining the PLASTIC Gear that runs the sweeper....According to other reviews and comments from Brinley. Have a lot of time to assemble and use carefully. I hope product sweeps well and lasts enough to justify the $250 and 2.5 hours assembling. I will post a follow up after using. ( I considered giving a bad review due to the Incorrect info online about assembly-but thought that would be unfair and unhelpful)

It was well packaged but large.It did fit in the back of my suv with the rear seats placed down. The assembly was simple and took a good hour. The difficulty was strecthing the fabric for the collector. It works great after dethatching my yard.

As advertised and even betterOperates very well and dump function is easy. You can pivot the basket all the way up and it covers the sweeper to protect it from the elements. An added benefitBut it and you’ll be happy.

Instructions are not well written. Small parts are labeled and numbered but the bigger parts are nut numbered, have to take the sweeper apart several times to get it right.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought one today. Bought this sweeper this morning, 3 hours later, returned it. Flimsy rods and construction. Fell apart twice on the first half load, bending one of the main bars. Save your money and invest in toilet paper, it'll last much longer!
