Hints & Tips
The latest storm has sent the leaves swirling, and a beautiful sight they make, a russet brown cloud blowing through the autumn sky.
Problem is, they eventually land and need clearing up and can be dangerous and slippery if they become matted on paths and drives.
The Agri-Fab Smart-Sweep 44″ Towed Lawn & Leaf Sweeper can clear large areas easily and quickly and has been designed so it will not jump and skip as it is towed, a problem other similar machines experience.
This means there is no need for a second pass to pick up the missed bits, a great time saver.
This model is 24 per cent wider than the previous one from Agri-Fab and has high traction wheels, high gearing and is easily attached to the lawn tractor with a universal hitch pin.
The working height can also be adjusted by a single lever so you can set it according to the thickness of the debris and the surface you are clearing.
A massive 710-litre collector can be emptied by a lever without leaving the driver’s seat.
Delivered free the next working day with a three-year warranty it costs £389, £110 off the recommended price.
This one, the SCH TS98 Heavy-Duty Leaf Sweeper is a similar machine and designed for prolonged, heavy use.
It has a differential on the wheels to enhance turning on tight corners and avoid it skipping and damaging the lawn.
The drive from the wheels to the brushes is via heavy-duty metal gearing and the height is adjustable by a single lever. The collector holds 270 litres.
The cost is £979, a useful reduction on the recommended price of £1099.
Delivery is FREE within 10 to 14 working days and it has a one-year warranty.
