Choosing the Best Lawn Sweeper – Buyer’s Guide
As we have seen, lawn sweepers vary widely in design and the few modifications each has, makes it incomparable to the rest. Some have constructions from metal, others plastic. The hoppers may lie very low on the ground or above ground. Let’s just say all the features they carry, make choosing the ideal sweeper a daunting task.
How does a Lawn Sweeper Work?
It uses brushes that continuously rotate to comb through the grass picking up debris and leaves. These brushes are located on a shaft which causes the rotations experienced during sweeping. Some lawn sweepers come with height adjustment capabilities.
When the brushes are too low, they may not move properly, and when they are too high, they may not collect everything. The right height is crucial when you want to maximize the uses of the sweeper.
What considerations to make before Purchasing your Lawn Sweeper
- The Capacity of the Hopper
You may want to consider the volume of leaves and area you’ll be covering when using a lawn sweeper. An area with many trees means you need a hopper with the ability to carry many cubic feet of leaves. If you own vast gardens, it’s best to look for the largest hoppers so that you won’t make many trips to empty the hopper.
It’s also important that you check on the material that makes the hopper. The make dictates the longevity for if you dump heavy debris on it, the stress it encounters may contribute substantially to its wear.
Type of construction
Is it primarily made of metal or plastic? Although sweepers made of plastic are lightweight and easy to use, their durability will never match their metal counterparts. Metal is resilient to breakage and damage from the weather. It is also able to hold up heavy debris to help with covering large areas in less time.
Width of the Brushes
This is just like the hopper; when you have many areas and many leaves to collect, a wide sweeper comes in handy to ease the job, so you don’t make many returns. Consider where you’ll be using your sweeper. If you need to cover small spaces, there’s no reason to spend so much on a wider than necessary sweeper.
Assembly & Storage
Nearly all sweepers come unassembled, but some are simpler than others to assemble. You may want to read other people’s experiences when joining their lawn sweepers, before making a decision. The type of assembly also dictates the way you are going to store your sweeper. The easier it is to assemble the better for you when it comes to disassembling for storage.
The type of Wheels is what you want to look out for in this section. They make your work easier when covering uneven grounds. The material which makes them garners the difference. Rubber wheels are popular because they can withstand rough areas. Plastic not so much but if you have a smooth lawn; there are no restrictions when choosing a sweeper with plastic wheels.
Lawn Sweepers are useful for all seasons and therefore come in handy to save you time when you need to collect leaves and debris every other day. Remember to examine the features of the lawn sweeper you desire so you can save yourself some heartache when you are alone trying to figure the best lawn sweeper for you.
Hopefully, with this list, you can familiarize yourself with what to expect and make the best choice from one of the listed options.
And, do not leave your sweeper outside. The scorching sun and rain play a significant role in depreciating even the top lawn sweepers.
