    We really like our Craftsman, but are only on our third year; seems like it will last well though.

    That may be the brand I saw a few years ago I cant remember where I saw it though, it had cast iron gears instead of the plastic ones used by the less expensive brands. The cost was $900+ back then. I can't justify that kind of price and thanks to all the thumbs up replies about the sears model, that's the way I'm going. Thanks again to all who posted. oscer.

    I got the 42" Agrifab. I would not recommend it. It skips a lot of lawn clippings. No matter where I set the roller bar adjustment. I'm gonna try something else some day, cause I'm plumb wore out getting on and off the mower to adjust the setting. bjr

    I can't find my manual but I think it is made by Ohio Steel.

    I've used a 42" Craftsman for about 7 years without a problem. It sees a lot of use early in the spring when the grass grows fast. I mow almost 5 acres and it is hard to keep up with it.

    They have one made by Ohio Steel at Tractor supply but I didn't open the box to look at it.

    Hi fellas, I went and bought a Sears sweeper but when I got it home it was not the same as the display model. I called them up and the guy said he would swap it for the one on display. Just wanted to let folks know the store owner didn't even know that Sears had changed them apparently it had the same number.

    I bought a 42" model from Sear about 18 months ago. It works very well. The main body of the sweeper seems to be heavy duty but the bag assembly is light weight. I filled it to the top and when I dumped it, the side bar (thin tubular metal) bent and after a while, it broke. You cannot let the bag get too heavy. I would buy another one.

    If you get the one on display you miss out on the fun of putting it together. Good thing your gonna miss it.

    Hope you have good luck with it. I remember the days when the staff at department stores worked on commission and most knew the products they were selling. Not sure how it works now but I can tell things sure have changed.

    My Craftsman 42" has been good so far. As nap61 says the bag is a little cheesy but so far adequate.

    I just got a deal on a Smyth 52TB sweeper Found it on the local Craigslist. I wrote to the maker in Canada and this particular model is now discontinued but sold for over $4500 new. I got it for $600 delivered. I guess we all get lucky every now and then. I just need to lube it up and makeup a power cable for the electric dump option.
