Here's a short video of my 12yr old getting some seat time on his 1967 Suburban pulling the lawn sweeper.

I'm glad we can still burn leaves, I have had a ditch fire from harvested leaves the last 2 days.... I hope I'll only have to have 1 more leaf harvest this year...

wish I had a mower that would do that, instead of just plowing them or spitting more out the sides of the deck than it chews up.

My least favorite yard chore....

That's a nice video.  That sweeper does a nice bit of work.

 

I vacuumed the leaves at my fiance's with the GT5000 and it's nine bushel hopper system.  It was lot's of trips.  A sweeper would have definitely been better.

I like the video. I have been thinking about getting one. It just seems like a good way to give a young lad seat time.

I have to agree. looks like it does a great job.
