Pretty Good

Overall this is a good product. Heavy and well constructed. It took about a half hour to assemble. I removed both wheels and lubricated the gears on each side and reassembled. There was some grease already there, but probably not enough to get throught the season. I attached it to the lawnmower and drove around to adjust it. After adjusting it, it did a rally good job of picking up the leaves. I do not have a great lawn, so it should have done a great job here. If you have a lot of holes, dips, very uneven terrain, it may not do a great job in these areas. Dumping was a problem though. I would pull on the string and get it back as far as it would go but could only get all of the leaves out if I hit the bottom side and popped the leaves out. I realized the cause of the problem only after I stepped back and saw the sweeper was not sitting properly when attached to my machine. My hitch is only 7.5" off the ground and it looks like 9" would allow proper operation. It would probably dump properly too. The bad: The shipping box is seriously underreinforced. It was mangled and had a few holes in it when it arrived. In addition there was a nut missing. Not one from the bag, but one that should have been attached and tightened upon arrival. Rather than call CS, I was already going to a Big Box store and bought one for 11cents. I plan to keep the sweeper and work on adjusting the mower or sweeper to attach at the correct height. One more thing. My yard is around 2/3rds of an acre. I have lots of small Oak leafes to pickup. Even though this sweeper seems to hold a lot, I will be dumping every 2 trips around the hard. Hopefully it will not be like this after I get the lawn fully picked up.

Product needs improvement

I purchased this product from Walmart on line and picked up from a store close by. I feel myself very good in assembling and assembled it. At the end I tried to lubricate wheel asembly which was mandatory brfore using. One wheel came off easyly but the other did not. I could not lubricate the other wheel because it did not come off the shaft. It was very tight. Somehow, I decided to use it. It picked up grass perfectly but after sometimes a very sharp squacking sound statrted coimming from the wheel that was not lubricated. It needed lubrication. I again tried to take the wheel off the shaft to lubricate but did not succeed. I than disassembled and returned. I liked the product because it had steel wheels compared with plastic wheels of Agri-Fab. I had not returned it if I could lubricate the other wheel as well.

38" Lawn Sweeper

I bought it on Site to Store which took about 2 weeks to get the item. It took 2 hours to put together and I used it for 15 minutes. I took it apart and took it back to the store and got my money back. It is very hard to adjust the height and just not well made. It has to be partially taken apart to store in a reasonable space. I do not recommend this sweeper, there are better ones on the market that are American made.

Problems!

I put this sweeper together and it would not dump properly. I know it was assembled properly because I actually used to be a professional assembler for Wal-Mart all through college. Anyway, the frame and clearances were not adequate to allow the dump bag to clear the main axle unit. I wasted 2 hrs. assembling and had to return it. Anyway, if it hadn't been for that, I believe it would have been a good sweeper.
Sweeper does a good job of picking up grass on first pass. I have a small problem with the dumping as it is difficullt to clear the hopper with one pull on the rope. Overall a good product for the money.
