........To me that is. My son had a customer come in to where he works and asked him to order him a new Agri-Fab 42" Lawn Sweeper. After taking his order and money the customer asked him if he wanted his old one. Having not seen it and he said he would look at it after the new one came in and he delivered it. Welllllll here it is...DSCF5246.JPG DSCF5247.JPG DSCF5248.JPG DSCF5249.JPG DSCF5250.JPG We had to put a new snap on the bottom of the basket, put two new clips on the top bar of the basket, install a new bolt in the basket arms, straighten out the front panel on the sweeper from hitting stumps or rocks to keep the broshes from hitting the panel. After that I hooked it up to Charlie and tried it out on the yard and the pine needles and pine cones. It woks great. It still has a 1 1/2 years worth of warranty availble on it! Next summer I will buy a new basket for it as it is ripped in a few places.  

Now I have to say this is one of the better things he has brought home from someone that has given him things over the years. As " Great Grandpa Sodie always said...." Anyting for free is worth savin up fer".." Thanks. Roger

I agree, Free is great!  I've been looking for one to maybe help with the leaves this fall.  We have so many trees it is a real pain around here when the leaves start falling.

Some folks like to have new stuff and can afford to do that. That's still in very good condition and should give you years of service for a small investment. You should check to see if it's previous owner has and GT's he is tired of.

We have pinetrees and the needles and pine cones drive us nuts. (get it pine cones, nuts...nevermind) and using this today picked up about 85 -90 % that I ran over. I only pulled it for about 10 min and it was full!!!! When I went to dump it, by the way I can do that from the seat now, it was all I could do to pull it up to dump. My neighbor has been eying it since I tried it out. I have an old Parker and  Craftsman Sweepers I am going to fix up in the spring and sell.  Thanks for the comments. Roger.

Something I have said for years - "Some people have more dollars than sense".

 

He used his dollars. You used your common sense.
