Top 10 Lawn Sweepers 2016

Got leaves are strewn throughout your property? Put down that back-breaking rake and strive one of these lawn sweepers alternatively. They will make light work of choosing up leaves, twigs, grass clippings and different debris spoiling your perfect landscaping.



A Clean Sweep: Get Yourself A Lawn Sweeper

If you pine for a yard free of pine needles or loathe the leaves left behind after a blustery fall day, then a lawn sweeper is the perfect ally in your quest for a crisp looking property. What autumn leaves or the lawn mower leave behind, a lawn sweeper can pick up, no raking required.

First let's look at a few of the reasons many people have chosen to purchase and use a lawn sweeper, then we'll look at the different types of units available. We'll discuss the lawn sweeper vs. the classic rake below, but a rake is not the only landscaping and property maintenance tool a lawn sweeper can supplant.

Lawn sweepers offer a great alternative to that other common landscaping tool, the leaf blower, for two primary reasons. First, a lawn sweeper can easily scoop up and gather even wet leaves or clumps of damp grass, items often too heavy or matted down for a leaf blower to lift or move. And second, a human powered lawn sweeper is a remarkably quiet device. You won't wake the neighborhood (or disturb the barbecue next door) by pushing a lawn sweeper about, whereas many gas powered leaf blowers often register at a volume of 70 to 75 decibels even when their noise is measured from fifty feet away.

There are two distinct types of lawn sweepers, and it's unlikely you will find both suitable for your property. The first type is a push behind option that is human powered and about the size if a standard lawn mower. These lawn sweepers make short work of the leaves and other natural debris littering a standard sized residential property, usually clearing a swath of about the same width a rake would cover with each pass. If you own or care for a single family residence (or a small business or apartment complex ringed by a moderate plot of property) that you want to keep looking clean and clear of fallen leaves, these affordable units are ideal.

The other type of lawn sweeper is decidedly more industrial in scale. In fact, you will need to use a tractor or riding lawn mower in order to use this next type of lawn sweeper: a pull behind lawn sweeper can gather many cubic feet of leaves (and other material) before its storage chamber needs to be emptied, allowing you to quickly clean up large areas of lawn. There is the obvious limitation of a required vehicle for use of these large sweepers, but if you already own or care for a property meriting such machinery, a lawn sweeper is a fine addition to your hardware.

The Lawn Sweeper Vs. The Rake


Go to top.

A lawn sweeper can save its user time and energy as he or she cleans up a property by reliably gathering loose debris of myriad types. It also out performs most other types of lawn cleaning device, such as the aforementioned leaf blower. Whereas a lawn mower can pick up much of the grass it cuts, it invariably leaves behind scattered bits of grass blades. While a rake intended for leaves will indeed catch most fallen leaves, it won't get those bits of grass or other smaller bits of organic material. And even after you gather a heavy pile of leaves, trimmings, twigs, and more, you still have to scoop it into garbage cans or bags.

That also says nothing about the effort required to use a basic rake, which can be a fatigue- and soreness-inducing undertaking, especially if you have a large property. It might come as a surprise to learn this statistic, but in fact each year as many as 38,000 Americans are injured by the process of raking leaves. The United States Consumer Products Safety Commission (or CSPC as it is usually known) reports that these injuries come in a variety of forms, with lower back and shoulder injuries being the most common.

Joint damage can also easily occur as a person overextends their reach on a long rake stroke or when hefting heavy bags or trash cans laden with leaves. (There is no reliable data available on the tragicomic tableau presented by a person stepping on a rake's head only to have the handle crash into his or her hapless face.)

Raking requires at least a moderate level of physical fitness, whereas a lawn sweeper can be safely pushed by almost anyone able to walk with stability. Even a slowly pushed lawn sweeper will still catch leaves and the debris. And controlling a lawn sweeper attached to a tractor or riding mower is even easier.

A Fine Source Of Rich Compost


Go to top.

Using a lawn sweeper presents one with the opportunity to load up a compost pile (or rotating compost bin) with remarkable ease and in less time than he or she would have imagined possible. This is true thanks to the balance of materials a properly established and maintained compost mixture requires.

Efficient and productive composting requires a mixture that balances the right proportion of carbon and nitrogen. This is often referred to as the C:N ratio by specialists. The ideal balance is approximately 25 parts carbon to one part nitrogen. Carbon comes from material such as straw, natural sawdust, paper free of dyes or preservatives, and of course fallen and dried deciduous leaves. Good sources of nitrogen include things like vegetable and fruit scraps, coffee grinds, and green grass clippings.

Therefore one of the best ways to quickly load up a compost bin with top quality carbon and nitrogen balanced material is to run your lawn sweeper across a grassy yard covered with fallen autumn leaves. The high volume of leaves the sweeper collects and the lower volume of grass it catches in the form of snapped blades (or bits the mower left behind earlier) will often approximate that 25:1 ration your compost pile needs.

#3.Ohio Steel 50SWP26 Pro Sweeper, 50"/26 cu. ft.


LOVE this lawn sweeper. I attached a carabiner to the end of the rope so that I can attach it to my mower near me and not worry about dropping it. Plus it is faster than tying and untying. I had previously used a John Deere lawn sweeper but this one is much larger and makes a big difference. It didn't look like it had a high back in the picture to me, but it is definitely high enough. So far so good!

#2.Agri-Fab 45-0492 Lawn Sweeper, 44-Inch


Many people are unaware of the benefits of a lawn sweeper. Most use a rake to clear away leaves, grass clippings, debris, even pine cones. That's hard work. It's also time consuming. With a lawn sweeper, the job becomes much easier on you and your lawn. It also works smoothly with its durable brushes, so your grass never gets damaged while cleaning your lawn. Sweepers also have certain advantages over a bagger. The sweeper holds almost twice as much as a bagger so you don''t have to empty the contents as often.
