Never did see a lawn sweep that worked good.  Lot easier and more positive to use a bagger on the mower.

I like my Craftsman sweeper.  Had a bagger on my rider, but it was always clogging up.  I do make a second pass over the lawn with the sweeper, but only because I pull an aerator when mowing.

I borrowed one from a neighbor and I was impressed with what it did.

Grass has to be dry when using a bagger and you have to watch so you don't keep trying to fill a full bag.

I have one,  not sure of the brand but I put 100 pounds of weight on it so the drive wheels wouldn't slip and that made a world of difference.  Had to go super slow or it'd throw the clippings 20 foot behind the hopper.  Without the weight it'd just slide the tires.

Hey thanks for the comments ! And hi to the East Derry member. Neat area .

 

The Parker sweeper was SOLD yesterday. This one always worked beyond expectations. I would suggest that without continuous attention to lubrication these sweepers (in general) can suffer from binding gearing or bearings.

 

In my case I have moved on to total mulching of all lawn debris and leaves with a mulching mower, so I no longer needed the sweeper.

As an "antique" working survivor it has been simply a really effective and cool unit.

 

My Jacobsen 800, recently returned to a nice running shape, still powers my "cone" wood splitter and Jacobsen snow blower.
