Grip Telescopic Rolling Magnetic Sweeper - 30in., Model# 53420
This rolling magnetic sweeper is great to have around a ranch. I purchased the product for my employer. We'd had wood chips delivered & were finding nails everywhere. Not something you want when you have horses & dogs walking around. The power of the magnet is fantastic. My employer was blown away by all the nails & other pieces of metal being picked up. He had no idea how bad it was until we used the magnetic sweeper.

great magnetic roller
I purchased this to look for nails and staples in my burn pit ashes. I burn pallets for kindling and then spread the ashes in low spots near my pit. This roller not only grabs the metal but is rugged enough to spread the ash. The handle then pulls the magnet for easy removal of the metal. One of my best purchases at northern .

Handy Tool Around the Barn
I use this to pick up dropped nails after working around the barn. Its wide magnet is great for quickly sweeping the aisles to make sure I didn't leave any nails where they could injure a horse. Easy to maneuver, durable and handy to have around as my eyes don't spot rusty nails on the floor as well as they used to.

this I must say is the best tool in my shop I use this every time I weld or do some type of metal fabrication work, I could not believe how much metal it picked up, that I l was leaving behind after cleaning my shop before I got this.i would recommend this to anybody who does metal work you wont be disappointed.

Product works well but not on uneven ground. works best on smooth asphalt/concrete, not so well on rough ground/broken pavement or grass. Strong magnet picks up all ferrous metal including shavings

Kids can help
This is an awesome product for any project! And cheaper that replacing tires! And light enough that the kids can help on the jobsite! Have used for many jobs, goes over rocks, grass, pavement, mud, just about anything...and picks up what you need it to!

Need Easy Adjustment
Decent magnet, It really needs a way to adjust the wheel height w/o first loosening or removing wheels to get at adjustment nuts. Also, be sure to smooth out the back edge of the arm adjustment thumb screw before you get cut on it.

I had to help clean up a old farm to ready it for sale and this tool saved a lot of labor. I was able to sweep several large areas for nails, screws and other small scrap metal peices without breaking my back bending over thousands of times.
The release handle works good and the wheels can be adjusted for height with a adjustable wrench.
Don't let too much metal build up on the bottom or it will take 50 pounds of pull on the handle to release the scrap.
I think the tool will last a long time as I have used it hard (in dirt and ashes of a large burn pile) for at least 20 hours and it still works great.
In the burn pile I collected over 7 cubice feet volume of nails, screws, wire, staples and the like. What a labor saver!

The only thing I don't like about it is the handle for removing metal. I grab it by mistake alot just trying to move it to put in the waste bin.
