The Boom

We had one before decide to upgrade to a larger one after 18 years using the older one. The 44 inch pick up is just the boom. It locks in place, does not spin, aiways picking up and work is over before you know it. I am picking up an acre of property. Great job Sears

Expected better quality

It took me about 1.5 hours to put it together so it wasn't that difficult to put together and the directions were pretty good. Now I will say, I used this late in the season and there was a THICK blanket of wet leaves in some areas of the yard and maybe that cause a problem? When I hit stick the wheels would lock up which I guess depending on the size of the stick is to be expected so I'll give them that. But when I hit an area of thick wet leaves..say a lose inch of wet leaves it would jam up and the wheels would lock so I'd have to stop and clear the debri. Now this was my first time usage so I wasn't sure what to expect. But I notice later a "knocking" sound so I stopped and went to take a look at what the issue now was. I noticed that one of the brushes had broken a 1/4 bolt. there are two of these bolts that hold the brush onto the spinning shaft. So if one bolt breaks it kind of flops around. So I had a replacement bolt in about the right size but it kept breaking. I must have replaced that bolt 3 times. I'm not sure that bolt is supposed to be some sort of shear pin so that if the brush gets stuck the bolt just breaks? But the original bolt broke, and the replacement bolts (which were NOT the same as the original Bolts) broke as well...maybe because they weren't as strong as the original? So for the first time out it was kind of frustrating because if I set the brush any higher it wouldn't pick anything up. I'm not sure it's because my lawn isn't completely flat in ALL areas and maybe that's what cause it to get hung up? Because in other areas where there were leaves and the ground was flat...it picked up the leaves very nicely. So I finally got the lawn cleared and I was putting the sweeper away. As I was pushing it around I heard one side (wheel) making what sounded like a stripped gear sound...just didn't sound solid. The other wheel when I moved it sounded tight...solid. So I think I also have a gear problem too. So overall, this thin just seems a little to flimsy for my yard. If I set it higher it doesn't pick up anything. I set it lower and it picks up nicely on the flat areas, but the brushes may get caught up and it snaps those 1/4 bolts. Why the gears on one side are making that noise is beyond me but if the wheel get's stuck due to an obstruction...is that really enough pressure to destroy a gear? I'm hoping the gears are at least some form of metal but they're probably plastic? I would NOT recommend this to anyone who has a yard that is not perfectly flat.

This sweeper requires way too many tweaks (self installed) to work 1/2 way efficiently.

Best sweeper I have ever owned new, after 150 hrs of use I have broken 2 of these sweepers the first one the main sweeper shaft broke the second one one of the gears stripped out 1 in 9 months the other in just over 1 year so no warranty I am mowing and sweeping 3 acres and mow over 150 hours a year but if you have a small yard this is a great sweeper
