Hello everyone,

Just wondering if a Bolens large frame sweepster attachment with hydraulic angling is rare? Also how much do they usually sell for? Its in nice shape and is in good working order.

I would have to look but the sweepers for the LF did not have hydraulic angling from my thinking.

You are right I believe, but this one does,  The guy added it. He took a cylinder from a 54" plow blade and made the broom hydraulic angling. So even though thats kinda nice, it probably hurts the value a bit??

How would that broom work on dry leaves?  Probably just roll up on the broom.

I've been looking for one for just that . I think it would work well for pushing the leaves to the edge of the property. Has any body ever tried it On leaves?

The owner said he never raked. He used it for that and in spring to clear the mess from the plows in his front yard.

If its in good shape and not all patched up,and works well I think $250.00-$350.00 is a fair price IMO

How would that broom work on dry leaves? Probably just roll up on the broom.

Back in the mid 60s, dad bought a JD 110 with a sweeper. We had to huge oak trees that dropped so many acorns you could not walk across the yard. We had a swing between them and they dropped a load of leaves too.
The sweeper did a nice job of moving them into piles, then my brothers and I would scoop them into a trailer and haul them to the ditch.

I payed 200$ for mine and its like brand new.  I say it drops the value.

If it's in good working order and you would be happy,then set your price,different areas bring different prices,just my thoughts,it's one of those attachments you don't see that often,I think the hydraulic angle would be nice

I say if you want it then get it, these attachments don't show up very often and waiting for a "deal" often means regretting not going for the first one that came available.

I'm still regretting not going for that mint reel mower one year ago because I was trying to bargain the price down and he sold it, haven't seen another one for sale since.

This Sweepster was included in the Bolens collection I bought off Craigs list. It does not fit any LF I have. Do you have any idea what type of tractor it is designed for?image.jpeg image.jpeg
