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.
