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.

From The Manufacturer
Agri-fab (44") 25 Cubic Foot Tow-behind Lawn Sweeper
This 44 lawn sweeper is one of the most versatile lawn sweepers on the market. For starters the 26 cu ft bag allows you to spend more time cleaning up debris and less time dumping. When it does come time to dump the sturdy dump handle makes it easy to dump without ever leaving your tractor seat.

This sweeper has an offset hitch option that allows the operator to offset the sweeper to one side or the other and pick up grass clipping while they mow. This eliminates having to sweep after you... more

Works Well.
You never know if something you buy online will work as advertised, but this thing worked well right from the beginning. Once I got the right height setting and learned to reach back and empty the hopper without looking, it made the process of cleaning up leaves a joy.

My only suggestion for an improvement would be if somehow they engineer it so you could "idle" the sweeper brushes when you're going to where you'll be unloading the leaves. I have to go a short distance through... more

Agri Fab Sweeper
The sweeper went together with my older a
Pollen mower easily and mowed our 3/4 acre lawn covered wth oak leaves. In less than an hour I had dumped leaves for mulch five times. Worked well when I got the hang of it. Worth the money. Seems strong and likely to last a Long time.

The Yard Is Clean
I purchased a new home with a lot of yard and leaves. The previous owner left me the riding mower, so when I saw the leaf accumulation, I searched for a tow behind and ordered up the Model #: 45-0492.

Glad To Recommend This Sweeper.
This is the second one we have had and this one is so much improved. We really like this one. It throws the grass to the back and can get three times as much in this one. Also the unloading rod beats the rope deal all to pieces. I like the height control as it is easy to set. I would recommend this model to anyone interested in purchasing one. Thanks for a great product.

Very Satisfied
Ordered this by phone, and had it the next day. Assembly was quick and easy. About 90 minutes after opening the box, the unit was ready for a test run. I followed the directions for leveling the sweeper and setting the brush height. The handy height gauge makes getting the right height a breeze. I was delighted with how well the unit performed it swept up a season's worth of dead grass clippings, filling the bag almost completely each pass.

Emptying the sweeper is easy. The cantilever... 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
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Gears On Wheels Melt

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

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.

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.

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.

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
