Haven't used it yet but it looks pretty sturdy. Now what I didn't like. I've seen better instructions with the cheap furniture you can buy and build yourself. I'm pretty good at putting stuff together but I don't know how many times I put this together and it wasn't right, again, the instruction manual. My advice would be to throw the book away and just guess at it. It also comes with a sticker that says they have an instruction video on line, thing is, it didn't work. Tried to use it on two different computers and I kept getting the message "site not found". This is made by Agri-Fab, I will not buy anything made by Agri-Fab again just because of the instructions. Really hope this sweeper works as good as they say.
This is the second sweeper I have bought from Sears. The first one lasted almost 10 years. I hope this one will be as good. My only complaint was the time that it took to assemble.
About 1/2 hour of assembly. Hooks right up to the craftsman rider. Works so well that I think we picked up grass clipping from 2 years ago. Suggestion for the rope to dump it: while out and about, pick up a thicker rope as the one that comes with it is a little in the thin side and hurts the hand when pulling it. Top notch item!!!!
I purchased this sweeper in April of 2011 because my old 38-inch Agri-Fab was wore out after 10 or 12 years. I liked the 8 ? to 1 brush to tire rotation ratio on the Craftsman. I thought the higher speed would pick up more grass and leaves than the Agri-Fab. I live in a forest with some open and sunny areas and need a sweeper to clean up as I mow. Within a year or so I had to replace a brush segment because the bristles had fallen out. Then the next year two more segments lost their bristles and had to be replaced. This year a metal brush retainer bracket broke in half and one of the brush segment looked like a spiral staircase after it wrapped around the brush spindle with a clatter. I ordered new brackets and straightened the brush segment as well as I could and re-assembled the brush. Now, both tires have come off the rim. At $50 a pop for new ones I decided to try to remount the old tires but they kept coming off anyway. Then I used screws to hold the tires to the rim. They still come off. Now I am giving up. Time to buy a new sweeper. Not buying a Craftsman. The design is poor and the sweeper is junk.
The price of the sweeper was very good, and it was on sale too. Delivery was fast and customer service was great. The item came as promised and was very nice. It is was to use, we had a slight issue with the bag, but customer service sent us a new one asap
This is the worst piece of equipment I ever purchased. The first time I used it the wheel fell off and had to be repaired. Then the wheel fell off again ? needed new parts and another repair! Also, the wheels lock up making this thing impossible to maneuver. Every time we use this thing something else breaks or flies off. Do NOT buy this product. It is nothing but a piece of junk. We always trusted the Craftsman name but not any more. We have owned this thing for 3 months and it is now sitting in our shed in pieces in need of yet another repair. The store will not take it back and only offers a replacement. Why would we trade one piece of junk for another? Again, do NOT buy this product. We are SO sorry we did. We will never trust the Craftsman name again. If it was possible, I would give this product 0 stars ? it is not even deserving of one.
Works fine. Assembly required, but if you take your time,nut for bolt,and follow the diagram, you end up with nothing left over. Upper handle must be inserted under the bag canopy b-4 sliding into carriage tubes. I have used it twice now, and it works like a charm.
I brought this home and put it together that was some what easy. it took me I'm sure longer than most as I am a disabled vet. So I got it together and hooked on to my lawn tractor. Man it swept up the leaves grass sticks. This is a great item to have. Easy to adjust and it does the job. I just wish I had more for it to do as it was awesome to use. I cant wait for fall.
