One Outstanding Sweeper!

I hope this review will be helpful to someone considering this sweeper. I have owned two other lawn sweepers, an Agri-Fab 42” with 10 inch brush diameter and a Brinly 42” with 11 inch brush diameter. Compared to these other two models the DR is in a league of its own! It’s fully adjustable where the other two are fixed and that’s just the beginning of its advantages. If you haven’t owned a lawn sweeper before one of the main features you want to look for is brush size diameter of sweep motion and gear ratio these two things combine to create the ability of the sweeper to lift things off the lawn and hurl them into the bag, this DR does the best job of any sweeper I have ever seen or tried. My Brinly swept pretty well but was a pain to dump and at near 300 bucks was hugely disappointing in the quality department, with less than 30 uses, the bag frame had broken in multiple spots and two brushes have been thrown from the sweeping axle and bent, plus it would jump out its height adjustment if it bounced around while sweeping…. its now in the city dump! The cheaper Agri Fab has held up a lot better but its small brush diameter doesn’t allow it to get enough lift to really do a great sweeping job, it will only fill its bag about half way before it piles grass up on its transverse support bar and quits collecting grass in the bag, so you are constantly dumping it which is a pain with its fixed bag Brinly has fixed bag also which I had to modify to be able to lift it off to dump it, plus its very light weight which causes the wheels to lose traction sometimes and thus it quits sweeping in some situations. This DR is solidly heavy the way it needs to be and it sweeps up everything in the yard, the height adjustment is easily changed and stays locked in place unlike the other two sweepers, and the flow through bag actually works allowing the entire bag to be filled before dumping. I actually sweep my whole yard and dumped once verses the Agri fab which would have required 5-7 dumps to do the same job. The quick release bag on this DR is my favorite feature! All these sweepers come with a rope you can use to supposedly dump the bag while you remain seated on the tractor, well this works ok but it’s truly a pain to try to back up any sweeper up and get it into the right spot to dump it if you have a specific place you want to put the load. I use my collected grass clippings for Organic Style gardening, i.e. I dump my grass around my garden plants to keep weed growth down, keep moisture in and around my plant roots and as it composts it provides natural fertilizer for be garden soil a win, win, win, scenario but you can forget trying to maneuver a garden tractor and sweeper full of grass clippings in the soft garden soil and dump it in a specific spot and that’s where the DR quick release bag is the best thing ever created on a sweeper. Two spring released latches allow the bag to be detached in 2 seconds downside is it will be so heavy from what’s its picked up this will likely be a two person job, a good problem to have in my opinion -: then you can carry the bag anywhere and dump or spread out your clippings! This feature alone made this worth buying. When you add up all the other features this DR has it really becomes a no brainer, yes it’s a little more costly than the others but you get what you pay for and since it was only about 60 on sale more than the now in the city dump Brinly plus the near 200 I paid for the Agri fab it really makes no financial sense to buy those cheaper models… The “a poor man can only afford the best” proverb really applies here! Get this sweeper and you will be glad you did!

It was very easy to assemble and I use it with my zero turn mower... Works Great....It took me a couple of runs to figure out what height adjustment works the best for me...If the tires stop rolling freely it is because it is to low to the ground or you have something stuck in the brushes...Very easy to unload leaves.... Sure makes it a lot easier to pick up all of the leaves.....

I ordered this sweeper from the reviews I read. I was able to assemble it in 30 min. Then trying it out after I assemble it. It performed better than I expected. I'm very happy that I purchased this well built equipment.

Well built durable lawn sweeper. The directions for assembly were quite good. However, got to admit that it took me about 3 hours to complete the job, not being mechanically inclined. I have lost a few assembly pins while sweeping, slightly irritating.

I used to rake up dried grass from my pastures a day, or two, after mowing..This grass "hay" is awesome for laying hen nesting material, but it was back breaking work..Now, with the DR lawn sweeper I can pull it behind my lawn tractor and gather as much as I'm ever going to need..

Lawn finally dried out enough to attempt a first spring mowing. The sweeper worked extremely well collecting the damp cut grass and remaining damp fall leaves. Easily adjustable in height and a breeze to empty.

Assembly of this item is not as straight forward as DR may think. There is no narrative to go along with the sketches that are provided. But I got it done. During assembly I noticed the wheels would not turn while on my concrete carport--brushes were set too low to allow them to turn so the wheels just dragged. This truly becomes a problem while trying to use the sweeper as the lowest 8-10 settings provide the same problem with the wheels dragging. What good are a dozen height settings if only the top two are of any use? The wheels will also stop turning and just drag along the lawn if only a little lawn debris is pulled in front of the wheels. The item is marked for use only with a lawn tractor suggesting a ZTR would be too fast to tow the sweeper which would cause damage. This is stated on the tongue but not in the advertisement for the item. The front edge of the sweeper is so low to the ground that it catches on any root above the ground and bends the flimsy metal. I had planned to retire my old Brinley sweeper but it is superior to this model. Not worth the extra money in my opinion. I can not recommend this item.

Just unboxed this product. Put it together in just under an hour. Had to drill off some of the powder coating in the screw holes. Some small scrapes on the powder coating nothing that wasn't going to get scratched anyway. Directions are for somebody with common sense I had to take mine back apart 3 times. So far this product has me smiling big. Vermont born and 802 strong. Hoping when I get my adjustment set better it does well with the acorns.

This is not a toy like the ones you get at the box stores. It's heavy built, easy to put together and works like it should.

Upon deliver - was ready to send it back. Opened box & all parts were there but a lot of metal had been bent. No scratches or paint off but edges & brush adjustment plate was bent. After a lot of beating & banging with rubber mallot & a pieve of wood & hammer - all was good. Was having a lot of thatch laying on top of the freshly cut grass - would rake the worse parts of the yard - cut 4 - 5 acres mostly flat land but very rough terrain due to moles & a lot of it had been a nursery. Found this wonderful sweeper & have used it at least 3 times - does a great job & is built with quality material. Would highly recommend to any one. One more thing - when the box arrived one of the brushes was messed up due to disarray of material in the box - was able to straighten it & did ok. Also after the 3rd use I got a little loose with the rope & it chewed wrapped around the brush axle - thinned out a few bristles but was able to us with no issues. Husband decided to get a fresh new set of brushes - called the number & a very nice man answered & helped me to order - he asked me why I was ordering a new set of brushes so soon & I explained. He told me he had two new brushes coming my way & when asked the price he said they were free due to my problems. Thought this was top notch of the company. Will be ordering more merchandise from DR in the future. I already have their burn cage which is a high quality product. Have agreat day!
