    Lawn sweepers

    I need something to tow behind my lawn mower to mainly pickup the twigs that my Fn cottonwood trees keep shedding all year long! These twigs are soft,about a foot long very light weight and a pain in the back to keep up with. Going on 12 years of this crap time to find a alternitive approach! Ohio Steel makes a lawn sweeper with great reviews but before I drop $300 I want to make sure whatever I buy does the job. So please give me your thoughts or ideas to help me and my back out. Thanks

    Cut em down? lol But seriously trim them pretty far back before they bloom/bud in the spring, should help a good bit. I have a small lawn care maintenance business and i've never had any experience with a lawn sweeper. I don't think they would do a super great job for picking up sticks shed from the tree.

    I would advise you to not buy a lawn sweeper. The place that I work sells them, but they don't do that great of a job. They can't even pick up wet leaves or anything. I hear nothing but complaints from customers about them. Every once in awhile I will hear a good review, but that is about it.

    Get a trac vac to attach to your lawnmower. We use the commercial models and they work great. Plenty of power, and you can usually find a residential model like the one pictured below on craigslist for cheap.
