4.0 out of 5 stars Generally very good design, with some suggestions for improvement and assembly
By David N. Thor on October 22, 2016
My lawn sweeper is replacing a 20-year old 38" Agri-Fab Lawnsweep with a bunch of broken parts. The Ohio Steel (OS) sweeper arrived undamaged, but the manufacturer does not put straps around the box and it was really close to having the bottom fall out by the time it got to my house.

The instructions were generally quite clear, leading the installer through just one small step at a time, except as noted regarding the top and bottom hopper tubes and the installation of the tensioning rods.

Although OS uses more clips and pins than Agri-Fab, I find it slightly more difficult to remove the hopper, but not unduly so; the Agri-Fab used little parts that allowed for 5-second removal of the hopper, whereas the OS uses snap pins that are likely to require a screwdriver when removing the pins. One improvement is that they use a multi-hitch to accommodate more tractors, but the leading edge of the OS is steel right down to the bottom, whereas the Agri-Fab was metal to a point and then the bottom 1-2" was a rubber gasket; this exposes the OS to potential damaging hits from tree roots. I've added some pictures to show some time-saving and safety tips. Amazon only allowed six pictures from my collection.

The most dangerous and difficult part of assembly were the tensioning rods. If possible, wear safety glasses or goggles. First, lay the hopper on its back and step inside. It is helpful to have grippy gloves or a pair of disposable nitrile gloves for this step, so that the tensioning rod doesn't slip in your hands. Put the rod in the top tube and then hold the other end with one hand and the center of the rod with your other hand, guiding it into position; it may take a few trial runs to get the hang of it.

When assembling the bottom and top tubes into the hopper, make sure that the two tensioning rod holes face each other, else you'll have to waste about 15 minutes undoing the assemblies.

I'm impressed with the overall quality of the sweeper compared with the Agri-Fab; some aspects of one are better than the other, but I do prefer the OS over the Agri-Fab for width, and disassembly for minimal storage space. I think the material used for the Agri-Fab hopper was of higher quality, however; I'm a little concerned of the thinner bottom of the OS hopper, because that is what takes the most wear, however when the sweeper is properly attached to the tractor, the bottom of the hopper should be a couple of inches, at least, off the ground. If the hopper were more rugged, I would have rated this sweeper a 5.
9/3/19: ready to start my 4th season with the sweeper and so far, the bottom of the hopper has withstood many full loads of wet leaves and grass, all the parts still line up nicely and I haven't lost any of the hardware yet. My fears about the bottom front of the brush guard getting dented up by roots has proven unfounded. As with any sweeper, getting the tip of the brushes at the right level is important, and my jobs involve pin needles and leaves from various trees, and the general technique I use is to chop leaves towards the center of the work area and sweep up the chopped leaves, getting more leaves (and weight) into the hopper, but this sweeper has held up through it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leaf sweeper turned poop sweeper
By Working mama on July 6, 2019
This was very easy to put together, the directions were easy to follow. I used the sweeper today to sweep up horse poop from the paddock. It worked amazing. The poop was dry, and it picked it up without picking up a bunch of dirt. Then I swept the concrete driveway that had leaves all over it. It worked great on the too. The last area was the rock driveway, which did a good job but you would need to adjust the height setting so it didn’t pickup a bunch of pebbles. I am extremely satisfied with the purchase except the bottom of the bag will definitely need to be reinforced. I am thinking a strip of aluminum glued to the bottom would be sufficient.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good buy
By Amazon Customer on June 25, 2020
updated... 04/20... wanted to upload a couple of pics of spring clean up... picked up about 90-95%.... obviously some where either too big or where facing the wrong way...my yard is about 3/4 acre.

First let me say, this is not a sweeper, it's more a broom. If you want a sweeper, buy a sweeper.
With that being said, it's not perfect.... but it does a pretty good job.
I have 1/2 acre and I have to dump it at least twice.
Assembly wasn't too incredibly difficult except for getting the fabric stretched per the instructions.... especially getting the Velcro attached.
Tips.... leave the dump cord in the basket.
If you put it either in front of or drag it behind, you'll end up running over it.
I had to go to Lowe's and buy a replacement cord.
One more tip, if you happen to have a gravel driveway as I do, grab the dump cord and lift the basket as you're going over it... it'll sweep the grave if you don't.
I added a couple of pics... that's 6 piles btw... yard was in pretty bad shape on that particular day.
