Good product, best used on a lawn that is kept relatively short and when the grass is not overly wet. Subject to those caveats, the product works well and is a great deal faster than a lawn rake. Delivery was very quick.
Does what it says on the tin
The leaf sweeper filled 3.5 one ton bags in around 45 minutes, it did not pick up every leaf from my lawn, I would say about 80% which is more than enough for me to be very pleased.
It picks up almost all the leaves in a single pass. It is height adjustable so can cope with short and longer grass height. It picks up smaller objects well (beech seed cases etc). The bag attaches well and holds a reasonable amount. It is relatively well made. Observations: a set of stiffer brushes would be useful for some applications. A handle at the bottom of the bag would help with emptying. Although well made, it is expensive for what it is but the Gardena name carries a promise of fitness for purpose. Buy one, it works.
Have a large garden with lawn and also wood. Autumn comes and the leaves fall requiring removal. Normally would use an extra large rake and narrow rake ( Corona big load and little load rakes ) which works with effort. Decided to try the Gardena Push Leaf collector. Must say I’m impressed. Realised it would not pick up 100% of the leaves ( estimate 80+% ) Quicker than raking just go up and down like a lawn mower. Still use the rakes at the edges. Glad I purchased.
Not the cheapest BUT BY NO MEANS EXPENSIVE!! I have 2 well established sycamore trees at both ends of a grassed area approx. 45 metres x 9 metres which took about an hour of hard graft with a 1 metre rake about 7/10 times per season. This bit of kit knocks it out in about 20 minutes WITH EASE although I also have to resort to the rake every week or so to remove the leaves and rotor seeds from the nooks and crannies!! Definitely no complaints with the purchase which arrived next day after ordering from Tooled Up- with a bonus of about £20 quid cheaper than most of their competitors. Should also reduce the moss on the lawn by doing the job more regularly, we'll see next year!
The Gardena works well for dry leaves on grass. More difficult for leaves on a path, the height adjustment crucial here. It is worth spending time adjusting the height, I added a scale to make it easier to see the height setting. Assembly instructions were good, you need quite a strong wrist to screw in the self tapping screws, but they were ok. It’s leaf collection is quite impressive, don’t expect it to collect every leaf but it probably gets 90% at times. Small twigs were ok but not big ones. Look at videos on line.
Amazing easy 5’3” female , even gets 50% acorns
A very good product which does the job well my only negative is that whoever designed this product must be about 6ft 3" as the handles are at an uncomfortable setting for anyone shorter resulting in the handle having to be held at a high angle to prevent the stands dragging along the ground
A well made product that collects about 90% of the leaves, which is probably as good as it gets for this sort of device.
Excellent product would highly recommend
I really like this leaf collector! No batteries, fuel or cables to get in the way. Picks up the majority of the leaves and small twigs on my lawn. Not quite so great on the pavement (might need to fiddle a bit more with the height adjuster to perfect it for hard surfaces!) On the whole though, I’m very happy with it! Definitely better than back breaking raking all afternoon!!
Wonderful product. It has really helped manage the fallen leaves - of which we have many!
I would recommend this product to any one who is looking for a high quality grass collector, I have put this tool through it's paces and have found it to be of great benefit and saves an amazing amount of time compared with other types of equipment.
Very well engineered, but nicely light weight. Sweeps well.
This Gardena leaf collector is very well made as expected, strongly constructed but light and easy to push. The only fault I would have is the leaves don’t always land in the basket due to the sides being too low. I have added extra cover to the basket and it now works well even lifting wet leaves.
Expensive but does the job!
Great value speedy service
Excellent service and well packed. Turned up in short time and after putting together have tried it a couple of times. Although it’s quite an expensive item I think it is well worth the purchase and will save me quite a lot of time collecting the leaves from one large oak tree and a few other smaller ones rather than raking them up. The collector is strong enough to do the job but light enough to store easily.
Really happy with this purchase - saves a lot of raking. Pretty quick to put together and relatively easy to follow instructions barring one bit I didn’t pay attention to and got upside down. Oops. Easily corrected though. Collector feels pretty robust in about 30 mins use so far. Collects the majority of leaves although don’t expect it to collect every single last one, but requires very little effort and certainly far less effort than using a rake. Also leaves lovely stripes on my lawn. Doesn’t pick up sticks or fallen apples etc but I didnt expect it to. Basket fills pretty quickly in use but is easy to release and empty - simply lifts off the sweeper at the bottom and clicks off the hook on the handle. Hook seems robust enough that it won’t break after prolonged use. Only two observations - neither of which would stop me buying this again - are (1) that the basket could have been designed to be bigger if it just didnt have such a pronounced slope from back to front - if they had higher walls at the front it could hold a lot more … the low front walls limit considerably how much the basket holds before leaves start overflowing; and (2) if you sweep over areas of taller grass, expect to have to yank or cut these off the brush occasionally… when taking my sweeper over the edge of a ‘less-managed’ (ie uncut for months) area of grass, some of the long stalks wound around the brush and needed removing by hand. Overall, though, absolutely delighted and will be using this extensively once the leaves really start falling off the big trees.

Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Hi, Would it help in raking leaves from a patch of land without lawn cover, instead just soil?
A : Hi there, I can’t think of any reason why not – in fact I’d assume it might be easier to operate in these conditions, but bear in mind I haven’t actually tried to do this, and it’s hard to say guarantee how well it will work in any one scenario as every situation is going to be slightly different in some way.
Q : I've just bought one of these, assembled it OK, but can't work out how to adjust the height. Does the orange know turn, pull out,or what? Maybe on my machine it's just a bit tight?
A : Hi Mike, ordinarily you should just have to rotate it counterclockwise to loosen it, and then once you're happy with the height you can tighten it back up by screwing it back down.
Q : Hi, I have a lots of fir trees coming up my brick driveway and they drop pine needles, will this machine cope with pine needle?
A : Hi Sue, unfortunately it's a bit hard to say as I can't find any reference to pine needles either from Gardena or from user reviews, but on top of this real world scenarios can differ quite a bit depending on factors like condition of the terrain and the species of tree. I'm going to ask Gardena to see if they have tested it on pine needles and will pass on any response here.
A : I've had a response from Gardena and they more or less said what I suspected - the pickup success depends very much on the individual conditions. Whilst is is primarily suited to collecting leaves, scarified material and grass cuttings, the Push Leaf Collector can in principle collect anything that can be gathered with a rake - however performance will vary depending on the nature of the environment it's working in, so it's hard to guarantee it will always work well for specific applications.
Q : Can you get new brushes if the supplied ones wear out
A : Hi Michael, I've asked Gardena about this but I've not heard back from them so far. They're not currently available as a standard retail line so I think you would have to get them directly from Gardena as a spare part. As soon as they send me any further info I'll pass it on.
A : Gardena have now confirmed this is available as a spare part. If you contact them via their website they will be able to send you a parts list for the Push Leaf Collector and advise how you can go about ordering anything you require from them directly.
Q : Can this be used in spring for grass clean up after winter for thatching grass were gets deeper into the grass and not just surface leaves only
A : I suspect the plastic tines on the Push Leaf Collector wouldn't be robust enough for this kind of application and you would probably want to look at a purpose built lawn raker / scarifier type of machine
Q : Is the handle height adjustable? As someone of 6 foot tall I need a comfortable handle height to avoid having to bend down etc.
A : Hi John, we're currently waiting on the next batch of stock to arrive and the information online is a bit unclear so I checked with Gardena - unfortunately they have advised that the handle itself cannot be adjusted, only the height of the brushes.
Q : What is the capacity of the collection bag and width of brushes. In addition what are the delivery costs??
A : Unfortunately Gardena haven't specified the width of the brushes or the collection capacity but I've asked if this information is available and will pass it on when they get back to me. In the meantime, you can get delivery costs for any item on our website if you scroll down to the bottom of the product page where you'll see a "What are the Delivery Costs for this Item" section
A : Gardena have now confirmed the Push Leaf Collector has a working width of 49cm and comes with a 90 litre collection bag. I will add this information to the description on our website for future reference
Q : hi will this pick big oak leafs as well as chestnut leaves
A : Hi Michael, I don't see why not - the unit has a fairly wide working width so I think it would have to be a very big leaf before it would struggle to pick it up
Q : Will it pick up acorns and twigs ?
A : Looking at the German reviews for this product some users have reported picking up acorns successfully and others haven't - whether this is to do with the height of the brushes, the length of the grass or even the type of acorn I'm not too sure but it seems like "possibly" is the only answer I can give. Likewise with twigs - it's not specifically designed for these but I'm sure some will get picked up along with the leaves whereas others will be too large and spindly.
Q : Can this be used on artificial turf.
A : Hi Jackie, although Gardena make no mention of artificial turf specifically, I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work - in fact I would guess the conditions would be ideal for it as it should be a fairly level and consistent surface for it to pick up from.
