What is a Lawn Sweeper?

If you hate raking leaves as much as I do, then a lawn sweeper is for you. Basically, one to sweep your lawn. Yes it really is that simple.  Some lawn sweepers are pulled behind riding lawn mowers. Which definitely makes them easier to use. However you do have to own a riding mower to use one. Other types are self-propelled and human powered. As with the different types, price ranges vary greatly also. The self-propelled and tractor pull-behind are going to be more expensive but require less manual labor. Which isn’t this the reason we’re looking at them in the first place?

One complaint of lawn sweepers is the assembly. Much like gas grills sometimes they can be difficult to assemble. So when looking to purchase one it always helps to find a saler who may assemble the product for you at no extra cost. When deciding to purchase a sweeper, there are many different options, sizes, and price ranges to take into consideration.

The different specifications can include: description, working width, hamper capacity, brushes (width and count), wheels & tires, bearings, reverse capability, storage, and warranty.

When deciding on a model or type, it’s best to determine your specific needs and most importantly lawn surface area and whether or not you have a riding mower.  And of course price is a big factor, which can range anywhere from $150 to more than $600. The less expensive models are obviously powered by you, the human, whereas the most expensive being attached to lawn mowers or garden tractors.

The sweeper works by using a set of brushes or combs which spin on a cylinder (usually the wheel axle) while the sweeper is moved across the lawn. As the brushes spin or rotate, they “sweep” leaves or other debris into a hopper or hamper. It really is like using a vacuum sweeper on your lawn. Additionally, it helps if your lawn is cut fairly short and is somewhat even.

It’s also important to point out that push lawn sweepers are a great alternative to leaf blowers. They’re a lot more ecologically friendly and not to mention you don’t have to purchase gas or worry amount which gas can has the gas/oil mixture in it!

So if you really hate raking leaves and have some extra cash to spend, why not try out a lawn sweeper? And make sure to stick around BestLawnSweeper.com as we’ll be comparing lawn sweepers, lawn care tips, and discussing the differences in products.
