A large unit with impressive 25 cubic ft. flow-through hopper. Grabs even small pieces of debris. Height adjusts easily with the push of a button. Folds to a compact size for convenient storage. 3-year warranty.
Higher-priced model. Inadequate assembly instructions. A few complaints of missing parts upon arrival. Somewhat difficult to control in reverse.
In addition to a reasonably spacious 20 cubic ft. capacity, its high-velocity brushes are excellent at yard pickup without repeated trips over the same areas. Middle-of-the-road price.
Height adjustment function is controlled by a subpar knob that has the tendency to fall off unit. Some owners complained of shoddy nuts and bolts that had to be replaced. Wet grass tends to clog it. Assembly instructions lack details.
A value-priced model that is lightweight and easy to push – ideal for small lawns. Hopper bag removes easily for emptying. Easy to assemble, height adjustment easy to change.
The sweep path is only 21", requiring more work than larger tow-behind models. Bag is only 26 gal. (about 3.5 cubit ft.) – requires frequent emptying. Build is on the flimsy side, hard to use in wind. Poor at grabbing grass clippings.
Lightweight, easy to push, and simple to hang up for storage. Spacious for a push-behind model – offers 7 cubic ft. capacity. Adjustable height. Comes with a 3-year warranty. Affordable.
Very difficult to assemble. Bag requires emptying more frequently than tow-behind lawn sweepers. Wheels lack traction, especially in wet conditions. Unit has a flimsy feel.
