Agri-Fab 38-Inch Tow Lawn Sweeper


  • Tow-behind lawn sweeper ideal for picking up leaves, grass clippings, and other lawn debris
  • Rip-stop vinyl hopper bag holds up to 12-cubic-feet of debris
  • Design allows for simple dumping of debris from tractor seat; infinite height adjustment
  • Includes 4-to-10-inch diameter replaceable brushes and 10-by-1-3/4-inch semi-pneumatic tires
  • 1-year limited warranty

The Agri-Fab 38-inch is a tow-behind lawn sweeper. Which means it must be used with a garden tractor or an ATV for you real outdoors man types! Most reviews seem to love this product and feel it’s best quality is the ability to dump the hopper without even leaving the seat of your tractor.

The hamper holds up to 12-cubic-feet of debris which makes it one of the larger lawn sweepers we’ve seen so far. Although many feel the size is nice for the amount of capacity it offers, maneurvering the sweeper around a small lawn can be quite tricky. Additionally, the large size, 72 x 45 x 23 seems to give many owners problems with storage. The hopper bag is made out of rip-stop vinyl which seems to hold up well season after season.

One great aspect of this lawn sweeper is that it has 4 to 10 inch diameter brushes that are replaceable. Additionally the 10 x 1 3/4 inch tires are semi-pneumatic. This Agri-Fab boasts “infinite” height adjustments making it easy to find just the right height for most lawns and grass lengths.

Overall the consensus is this product was easy to assemble. As with most tow-behind sweepers or tow behind aerator, it will take a while to get used to how fast to pull for optimal results. But hey, it still beats raking!

Users have noted that this sweeper is great for dry leaves, larger pine needles, small pine cones and dry grass. Although picking up anything wet seems to be hard work for this sweeper. But honestly, we haven’t seen one yet that picks up anything wet. There’s no doubt if you have a large lawn, this baby could save you a week in raking leaves. Oh, and did we mention you don’t even have to get out of your seat to empty it?

Pros: Great capacity (12 cubic feet), rip-stop vinyl for resisting wear and tear, easy dumping from tractor.
Cons: Large size requires more room for storage (but honestly, if you’ve got a big yard and tractor, you should have the room)
Price: Sales for around $270

If it’s an Agri-Fab, you’re best bet would be to call them directly at 800-448-9282. However, you may have luck with looking in your yellow pages for local lawn and garden shops and see if they have any repair centers or know of any local shop that may keep spares laying around. I know in my areas we have a few guys who work on these types of lawn equipment and sometimes have parts just laying around. Good luck.

It seems to be a recurring theme w/ this sweeper…. that the pinion gear drive wheels (which are plastic/poly material) are going to wear out in about 3 to 6 years. My 38″ agrifab went for about 6 years total before the gears were just completely stripped out and sweep would no longer run. Having to replace both the wheels, plus bearing/bushings… plus the sweep brooms. About a year ago I just reversed the brooms so they were cupping forward (instead of backward)….and it made a difference… but only for so long. Over all… I would not recommend this sweeper… simply for the lack of durability in the build. Other’s posts will attest to this.
Parts: I’ve found replacement (geared) wheels from a number of sites online…. if you just search google for “44930 wheel”… you’ll find lots of online sellers w/ the part for around $20 each ($40 total for two wheels). You’re also likely going to need the plastic bushings for $3 each ( part # 450331). You’ll want to be sure you get enough of these… some sites may sell in pairs… others not. You need 2 bushings for each wheel.
