I hate to have to build things after I buy them. This sweeper have a few simple parts to bolt together, then 10 minutes later I was sweeping up loose grass clippings. I wish I had bought one of these sooner, makes the lawn look great just riding around on your lawn tractor. Don't get any easier that that.

This seems to be a decent product. The assembly was a little tedious, and cumbersome. It took a good bit of time to assemble alone, but after it was all said and done it works very well for what i wanted.

The sweeper works great, my lawn looks amazing. The only thing I would mention is if you mow around low limbs be mindful of the sweeper. The bigger limbs can rub the netting where it goes over the framework on the top of the bag. Mine rubbed so much (during one lawn mowing session) that it split and came loose.
It cleans the lawn so well. The only problem is don't forget to empty it more often than I did. It was only a quarter full but so heavy cause it was mostly sticks,acorns dirt n rocks. Also made the lawn look so good my wife was like WOW.
The change in design from chain and sprocket to plastic gear driven was a hugh mistake. If you buy this sweeper also buy extra gears as you will need them soon. I think Sears was trying to improve value but only cheapened the product. The person who made this decision should be assigned latrene duty so they can recognize **** before it is put in the pipeline.
This sweeper saved me hours of work. I basically live in the woods and have pine and oak trees all over the place. This sweeper did an incredible job of picking up the pine needles, pine cones, twigs and leaves. This was a real pain in the neck to assemble. However, this was worth the effort.
I have a 1/4 acre of grass that I De-thatched and I thought what a pain it is to rake it up after dethatching. So I gave it a go and bought this sweeper regardeless of what the bad ratings were as you know everyone is a critic. So my wife an I had this together in about an hour. No missing parts or no damaged parts. So I re-thatched the yard and I had a ton of dead grass. After getting the easy to adjust height right, this thing picked up like a vacuum cleaner. You should run your tractor at near full speed. The ratio is the wheel turns around once and the brushes turn 5 times. So a 5:1. I fill it up and it holds alot, back it up, pull the rope and the grass falls right out. My boys bagged near 20 bags in about an hour and I picked it up with this sweeper in about 20 minutes and that was running back and forth. My yard is not level and yet running in criss cross pattern picked it ALL up. I recommend this. If you have problems with it, it's because you have not set it up right. The instructions say the rear bag should be 5-7" from the level ground. I found getting this on the grass and looking at the brushes just meeting with the ground worked. If it's no picking up grass, then lower it, only takes a few seconds by hand. If the wheels are not turning and look like the brakes are on, then you have it too low. You'll get the hang of it and be careful you neighbors may want to borrow it. Better than a rear bagger in my opinion. Good luck.
