    Anyone have any input of these PARKER LAWN SWEEPERS? I have the opportunity to buy one for $100 and its in my city? Also, any input on a Echo GT-2000 for $45?? It is like new but I thought maybe I would get it for a backup? Thanks

    I had a lawn sweeper once.......got rid of it. Get a bagger for your mower and you'll be money ahead. The sweepers work but the leaves tend to blow right over the top of the hopper. It won't pick up pinestraw without getting the straw wrapped up in the wheels (mine didn't anyway). The best thing they do is clean up grass clippings and they do that really well. It's a hassle to haul it around though. When I got my bagger for the mower I was pulling it with I was so much more efficient and a whole lot happier.
