I wanted to tell you about a product that I found on I want that! HGTV. It's the Hoover Spin Sweep outdoor Sweeper. I was looking for something to sweep up debris and stuff outside in my yard that didn't have an electric cord or was a heavy gas blower. I came across this and I really like it because it is like a big broom you push it forwards and the two brushes up front that you see in the picture spin and pick up the debris.
The handle on this is a nice height and adjustable which is great for me or my husband, i am asctually a little taller than him so we both can use it very comfortably. It's kinda diffucult to empty though you have to push the button that is on top of the unit and if I don't get a handle on it just right it tends to hang up on me. This is my only complaint. I have noticed that it picks up quit a bit of stuff before you have to empty it.
I think that is great for people like my husband he has very bad arthitis in his ankle due to a severe injury years ago, and this is very easy to push and light weight. (except when it is full)
I would recommend this product for all those gardeners out there that are tired of plugging all their lawn equipment in and carrying around all the other pieces of lawn equipment that they may have to carry that are gas.
