Parker Suburbanite – 36in. Wide Tow Behind Lawn Sweeper



With so many choices out there for lawn sweepers, one way to go is with the tow behind lawn sweeper. Obviously since it's a "tow behind" you must have something to tow it with. Depending on what your method will be ATV, Garden or Lawn tractor, you certainly have plenty of models and features to choose from.

The biggest benefit of the tow behind lawn sweeper may be, if you get the right model, that you don't have to get off your tractor to dump it. The tow behind model we'll be looking at today is the Parker Suburbanite 36 inch lawn sweeper. This particular model hasn't been reviewed much, and from what we've seen it does not allow dumping from the tractor seat like the Agri-Fab 38-Inch Tow Lawn Sweeper; which is odd since it's almost three times the price. However, this Parker Suburbanite is a well built and commercial grade sweeper, so if you're serious about getting a tow behind sweeper, check it out!

The Parker Tow-Behind Suburbanite Lawn Sweeper is the largest of the lawn sweepers we’ve seen here so far. This product is actually advertised as a Turf Sweeper and recommended for sports turf professionals. We have not heard reviews from anyone who have used this product so we don’t have much to go on. With a hefty price tag (we found it from $899 to $930), it would be hard to make a decision on this lawn sweeper without more first hand information. With that said, lets take a look at it’s capabilities.Parker Tow-Behind Suburbanite 36in

This sweeper has a huge capacity of 17 cubic feet. One big difference we noticed was the cast iron wheels and rear casters. Since this is a tow behind, it features 10.5 wheels on the front and smaller cast-iron casters on the rear. It is recommended that this sweeper be pulled by front engine turf and/or lawn tractor or ATV with a rear hitch attachment. One thing we did notice, this product boast the ability to work behind a zero-turn riding mower. This is a great feature which is sometimes hard to find in some of the tow behind models.

This sweeper has all the bells and whistles and we hope to find some reviews on this so we can get them up here for everyone. We’ll be checking around to see if anyone has this model and what their experience with it is. One of the features that really excites us is the eight brushes which are polypropylene steel-backed and staggered in rows.
Something else we noticed is not listed as a feature is the ability to dump the hamper without leaving your seat! Hard to imagine on a sweeper in this price range.

Best Qualities: Size (17 cubic feet!), can be used behind zero-turning mower
Bad Qualities: Not enough experience to give good review, will keep looking. Price, around $900.
