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
  • Hitch pin included
  • Assembled dimension: 50 in. W x 53 in. D x 26 in. H

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.

Can you stop brushes when not wanting to sweep while going to dump?

Can you stop brushes when not wanting to sweep while going to dump?
Asked by: pab
Theoretically, yes. Practically, no. The brushes are turned by a pinion. gear. This is a device that turns the brushes when the sweeper is moving forward but does not turn them when the sweeper is moving backward. You can see this by taking off the hamper, unhitching the brushes, standing behind the brushes and rolling the brush housing backward and forward by hand. So theoretically - yes. But backing the sweeper to the dump site with a riding mower seems hard to impossible. So practically - no.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brinly 42” Lawn rake, 3year eval Preface: I do not own this lawn rake. This is my neighbors rack ... Brinly 42” Lawn rake, 3year eval Preface: I do not own this lawn rake. This is my neighbors rack that I have been borrowing (doing this research since I want to buy my own Lawn rake.) Both my neighbor and I live on groomed 1.75 acres lots. I have about 75 trees (1/2 deciduous) my Neighbor has about 20 trees (1/2 deciduous). Average tree height is 70ft. I drive a Z-turn mower and my neighbor uses a regular cub cadet tractor type lawn mower. The lawn rake has been used lightly for left over grass clipping and heavily for leaf pickup. Pros: Rack has a metal pinion gear (brush gear) that is designed so that each wheel does not drive when it is going backwards. So you can pivot around one wheel (The wheel is stationary, while the other wheel is making a big circle around the other.) This can be done both frontwards and backwards without causing binding in the drive train. Catcher bottom shows no wear to very little after 3 years of use. and is made of a heavy plastic with reinforced plastic molded edges. The catcher will probably last for another 10 years at this rate. It might wear out on the upper tube seams before the bottom is worn out. The unit has 3 brushes on each side going across. the left and right side brush are offset from each other. Gearing: The plastic gear turns the pinion gear approx. 5.34 times for every turn of the wheel drive gear. This ends up means that with 3 brushes a brush goes across the ground every 2.35 inches. Not bad. This unit does an excellent job of picking up grass and leaves on fairly flat ground. With all of my tree and moles, my yard is a little uneven in places and the rake can miss some mulched leaves/grass behind. Maintenance is fairly easy, it takes a flat blade screw driver, external snap ring pliers, and a regular set of pliers, 3 in 1 oil, and normal grease. I spent 1/2 hour per side, I got carried away cleaning every surface and looking at wear on every wear surface and taking measurements, and looking at free play and slop. Since I have gone through this once, I feel like I could probably do the job in 10 minutes per side. Brinly manuals are better than other manufactures. They give greater description of assembly and maintenance. Cons: The drive wheel gear is plastic and molded into the wheel (SAME AS EVERY OTHER LAWN RAKE ON THE MARKET). After 3 years of use there is a slight amount of wear but not bad. I caught my neighbor picking up leaves with the height set at the very lowest setting. If the grass is not mowed flat to the ground this will cause wheel hop due to the wheels driving forward and the brushes dragging on the ground. When the wheel hops it is probably skipping a gear and causing a large amount of strain on the plastic gears. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO SET THE HEIGHT CORRECTLY. This fall was the first time that yearly maintenance was done on the unit. One wheel shaft and pinion shaft was dry. The wheels with molded drive gear are not cheap to replace. $92 for a set (L & R) on amazon. The brush shaft bearing had a lot of slop, they appeared to be Non-sealed needle bearings. I tried to spray lithium grease/oil into each side of the bearing. The plastic wheel has a steel bushing inside that rides on a 5/8 shaft. This goes through a another bushing attached to the main body of the sweeper. Between both bushings there is a lot of wobble of the wheel. With all of this slop I can see were the gear could slip of the pinion as described above. The catcher has a top flap that is suppose to keep material from flying out of the catcher. Problem is with leaves is that is stops the catcher from filling up with leaves. It is not as much of a problem with grass, since the grass is so heavy you really do not want to fill the catcher over 1/2 full, because a 1/2 full catcher of grass really takes a lot of force (muscles) to empty the catcher. I do not think my wife could empty it over 1/2 full and I am guessing it is at least 50+ pounds of pulling force to lift it. The leaves are light enough even a full load mulched leaves is only 25 pounds to lift. As with all of the lawn rakes, do not make sharp turns with the Z-turn mower; make large sweeping turns (pretend you are a tractor mower). Because it ability of the Z-turn mower to react quickly backing up is a little tricky, but doable with practice with complete awareness at all time. This gives my neck a good stretch not only backing up but I also glance back on a regular basis coming close to trees to make sure I am not going to rub a tree with the wheels. The brushes rub on the center part of the body and have worn off the pain in one section.

I have a 100 foot oak tree in my front yard that drops leaves into January. We tried using this twice to cut our leaf gathering/clean up time down and both times it was a huge pain in the rear. It does not pick up the bottom layer of leaves at all no matter how many times you roll over them. Doesn’t matter if the leaves are wet or dry... doesn’t matter the height setting...both times we have tried using it after about an hour we just pulled out our backpack blower and did the clean up in 45 minutes or less... Don’t waste your 300.00 on this. We are returning ours tomorrow
