My name is David Diffenderfer. I’ve been retired from Nuclear Engineering for a while now.
My partner, Audrey, and I are very active in photography and playing the theater pipe organ. We use our photography to promote music scholarships and support the “Make A Wish Foundation” at The Blackwood Estate in Pittsburgh (PA).
We have about 5 acres of yard surrounded by 15 acres of hardwood forest.
We love our yard and spend considerable time in it, but at our age it is becoming difficult to maintain.
What a blessing!
We only have to rake the leaves away from the tree trunks and the lawn sweeper picks them all up.
Leaving a load of dry leaves in the basket makes a wonderful warm place for our outdoor cats to bed down in winter.
I run the mowing lawn tractor over the yard, blow the leaves into several strips and then run the lawn sweeper over the strips of leaves.
After collection with the lawn sweeper, the leaves get dumped into our garden where they decompose.
We can now maintain our yard for many more years thanks to our Agri-Fab 44″ lawn sweeper.
We contacted David by email after seeing his lawn sweeper photos on Flickr. David is not affiliated with this web site in any way.
He graciously agreed to share his story and the personal photos you see above because of a passion for sharing information about lawn sweepers.
The lawn sweeper has improved his quality of life and he would like as many people as possible to benefit by learning about them.
David especially likes how the lawn sweeper eases the pressure on his back and helps maintain good health. He is also happy that it allows him to clear leaves from his lawn with much less time and energy than raking.
