Q: Where does the thatcher bar fit?
by Bonnie Weiland from Texas on September 27, 2013

A: Bonnie,

It fits right in front and it is u-bolted directly to the bar where the hitch tongue is attached to. I have included the instruction manual in a link below that outlines this perfectly.

Q: Does this sweeper have plastic gears or metal gears
by David Ramsey from Ohio on August 22, 2013

A: David,

The pinion gears are metal and they rotate around the teeth on the inside of the wheel which is a polymer plastic.

Great Sweeper
Easy assembly and cleans lawn great. You would think it is a piece of carpet, it looks so good.

Doesn't Work Very Well
The wheels and sweeper only turn intermittently. The leaves and debris don't pick up very well. Overall, it's a disappointment compared to the traditional baskets hanging off the back. It was also bent when it arrived.

Christopher,
For better performance, make sure the sweeper is set to the appropriate height. If it's too low or too high, it will only turn intermittently. If you still have issues with it, this sweeper has a 3-year consumer warranty. You can contact Agri-Fab toll-free at (800) 448-9282.

Should you have any other questions or concerns, don't hesitate to give us a call here at Leaf Blowers Direct. Our number is 1 (888) 560-6929.

Works Very Well
The assembly requires 2 or 3 hours, but it works very well. The sweeper brushes were not assembled tight, and required tightening before use. It is easy to unload and is easy to move around and hook up. It was just what I needed.

Works Well- Even On Land With Some Hills/undulations
I bought mine in late summer 2014. It took about 1.5 hours to put together. It worked really well for me this fall with leaf pickup- even picked up a lot of pine needles from a white pine that covers a portion of my lawn. It save me a lot of time raking. I do not use it to pick up grass clippings- I let them drop.

I must say, even when folded up, it takes quite a bit of room in my garage- that thought didn't cross my mind. I plan to figure out if there's some way to hang it on the wall-... more

I laid the parts out compared to the manual. I started assembling. You have to follow the pictures by the numbers exactly. I have never put anything together and not had left over parts or been short on parts. It took a long time, but turned out perfect! I used it for 15 minutes. It even picked up grass that had been rained on two days earlier.

Junk
Here is a copy and paste of the review I tried to post directly to Agri-Fabs website. But they filter their reviews and said this won't be posted. That is the only response I've gotten from them, regardless of emails I've sent.

"Extremely dissappointed
I bought this about 18 months ago to help with fall cleanup. This couldn't keep up with my leaves, and if the ground is damp, like it can be in fall, the narrow tires leaves grooves/ruts in the yard. Today, I finally found a project... more

Wouldn't Buy Another One Like This!!!
After using the sweeper 5-6 times the wheels stopped turning & skidding on the grass. Took everything apart & found that the gears on the inside of the plastic wheels are also plastic were melted & peened over. The gears that turn sweeper brushes are steel & the heat transfer softens the plastic. I brought the wheels to Tractor Supply where I bought the sweeper & showed them the wheels. They called the company & explained the problem. The company said it was due to going... more

Alex,
Please keep in mind, this is an older sweeper and we have addressed this issue. Agri-Fab has now added a bronze bearing to this model sweeper's wheels in November of 2012. It is recommended that this product be towed by a riding lawn mower, generally at speeds less than 7.5 mph.

Not A Good Product
2 sets of wheels down and the gears that turn the sweeper are trashed again. Agri-Fab says go slow, well I do go slow and the same result. It's a poor design.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality

So Far So Good!!!
Purchased this unit to remove grass, leaves, and debris from my yard. The assembly was easy and no tools were needed. I have only used it twice but I am very impressed with its performance. The sweeper setting works like a charm, although I would recommend setting it lower than what the guide says. The lawn looks absolutely beautiful after all the clippings are removed, makes it look as if it were professionally cut and cleaned. So far so good... no complaints!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality
