Q: Can you dump the hopper from the seat or do you have to get off and do it manually thanks
by John from Kentucky on August 23, 2013

A: John,

This sweeper is shipped with a sturdy pull rope that you attach to an eyelet that allows you to dump from the tractor/ATV seat. In fact, all of the Ohio Sweepers do.

Poor Design Flaw In The Bristles
I have just received this tow behind Ohio Steel sweeper and built it the day it came in. That had its moments, but it came together as per the instructions.

Now that the weather has appeared one week later I decided to try it out. The grass is not yet growing at my home in MA, but I had some small pieces of leaves and scattered dead grass from the last season mowing.

I followed the instructions to the letter and am very much electro-mechanically inclined and state licensed. I started... more

The Real Review
I bought a heavy duty product so it would just 'work'. However, today I come in from outside with a piece of junk that won't lift a leaf. You see, the gears are made of plastic and apparently for the 25 months I've had it, they have slowly been wearing away and stripping out. I would not buy another one based on my experience. Oh, and my warranty ended last month. I sure hope I can find parts or this will go from being an expensive garage hog to a recycling center resident.

Worst Experience Ever
Ordered this through Home Depot. Two weeks later I get the box that was damaged and opened. Missing a part and no shipping label on damaged box. Tried to call to get part shipped to me. Can't talk to anyone just recorded messages, filled out online form to get part and left email and phone number so they would contact me. But NO, never heard from them. So I started emailing, calling them and filling out online form 5 times a day to get a response. FINALLY, I get a response. They wanted shipping... more

Works Well
Assembled in a hour. After reading tips on setting the height (brushes 1/4-1/2 inches below top of grass) started sweeping. Worked extremely well. I was skeptical of lawn sweepers before, but wish I would have gotten this years ago. We'll see how long the gears last but for now happy with purchase. Also purchased the Agri-Fab dethatcher and that does a awesome job also.

No Assembly Booklet Included In Package.
I recieved my lawn sweeper the next which was a surprise. It arrived in a beat up package but it was not damaged. The problem was that it arrived with no assembly booklet. But I have a friend who came figured it out it took hours.
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging

Bad Bag
I recieved my sweeper, all was good and easy to follow instructions. Works really well, but after the first time I used the bag it tore the bottom where it is thick hard plastic. This never happened with the Craftsmans I have owned in the past. This is an issue that needs to be resolved. This issue will determine what I purchase next time.

Good Product, One Problem
Well made product. However, a design flaw that should be addressed. On the rear of the catch bag, underneath side, where it touches the ground, it wore a hole in the bag the first time that I used it.

Somehow small wheels or a metal drag strip should be put on there to prevent this from happening.

Works Good
Our unit was delivered on time, but the shipper had treated the packing very rough. The box was pieced together with a couple other boxes with bunches of tape.

Luckily there wasn't any real damage. Just some minor dings. The unit works great on pine straw, which is what I got it for.

Good Machine..
Delivery: very quick (in my case - 3 days).
Assembly and adjustment: all exactly as in the manual (in my case - less than 1 hour).
Experience of first 3 runs in early spring:
1. Clean sweep of leaves, needles, small branches, etc.
2. About 80-90% sweep of cones and medium branches.
3. Specifics of design does not provide an opportunity to make a turns with radius less than approximately double width of the sweeper's weels base. If you do, the lawn can be damaged.
Conclusion: very good... more
