Rated 3 out of 5Â by 2Kim Ordered for carpet at work
I wanted a manual brush sweeper that would pick up around our desks at work. Typical of any carpet in an office, the carpet gets dirty with pieces of paper, staples, and bits of food. Since the cleaning crew vacuums infrequently, I knew that the sweeper would get a lot of use.
The carpet is new and textured which does not make it easy to sweep with this sweeper. But even where the area is what I would consider easy to sweep, it takes a bit more back-and-forth motions to clean. I also feel that the sweeper does not feel very sturdy. The sweeper does its job, but I would have liked it to be of a better quality. I can see how other reviewers had problems with the handle breaking.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by catmom Great for Kitty Litter on Basement Floor
Picked my up "Natural Sweep" today from Kmart. I needed a light, efficient sweeper specifically for picking up tracked kitty litter in the basement where my cats (2) litter boxes are located. My vacuum is to big & heavy for carrying up/down the stairs and the cord to short (always need an extension cord) for trying to get everywhere the kitty litter ends up. This sweeper works great! It picked up all of the kitty litter from the cement floor with no problem at all. I looked at cordless sweepers as well but I'm glad I choose the the Natural Sweep instead. It's quick, quiet and light weight and I don't have to bother with charging a battery.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by GATOR94 No sweeping suction
This is literally just a push sweeper. I'm not even sure what the purpose of a push sweeper is. This did not pick up small pieces of debris that was in the grout of my tiles. And it doesn't do anything on a short throw rug. Since there's no suction it just kinda pushes stuff around. I returned it, paid a little more $ and bought a Bissell Lift-Off Floors & More and it is worth every single penny!!! It's my favorite tool/appliance in the house!

I am comparing this unit to a single brush Bissell "ALL SURFACE" unit I have used for about 15 years and which has worked flawlessly for the entire time. Unfortunatly, Bissell no longer makes this unit or I would buy two. I bought 2 of the "Natural Sweep" units and am returning them both! Problems I see are:
1) Can only be pushed from one side;
2) Dust pan does not lock in open position to facilitate emptying
3) Does not come with a brush comb
4) Dust pans are plastic vs. metal. Not as durable.
5) Drive wheels (for brushes) appear to slip, does not pick up as well
6) Pet hair, rather than being deposited in dust pans, builds up on brushes
7) Too large for my use (width / depth)
