Does the 'limited' warrantee cover the alleged plastic wheel gearing system.

Quite a few of the objections for this unit are with the plastic wheel gearing arrangement. I am asking if that has changed, or if not, is it covered under the warrantee??????
Asked by: Joe
Joe, thank you for your interest in the Agri-Fab Lawn Sweeper. Agri-Fab addressed the concerns about the wheel gears in December 2011 introducing bronze wheel inserts to increase the product life. The sweeper is designed to go no more than 5 mph higher speeds will decrease the life span of the wheels and gears. The wheels are covered under the 1 year wearable parts warranty if you would have any problems. If you are interested in the most up to date Agri-Fab sweeper please take a look at the redesigned model # 45-0492 on homedepot.com

SmartSWEEP 44 in. 25 cu. ft. Tow Lawn Sweeper for Tractors and Mowers-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy Do not buy this unit. It looks heavy duty but it is not. They use plastic gears within the tires to drive the lawn sweep and after only three uses they stripped leaving me with nothing more then a lawn cart. To add insult to injury they charge you $42 per wheel to replace and all it is a cheap piece of plastic. Very disappointed with this unit. I do not blame Home Depot as this product has only been out for a year or so but Agrifab says it is heavy duty. How many heavy duty devices do you know of that use plastic gears? Very poor design and will not last long with normal use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Totally Suprised My wife and I recently bought a house that was sitting for about 6 months, and has about 1.5 acres of grass. We figured we would be ok to wait until spring to mow the lawn. That happened to be this weekend. We bought a tractor, and I spent 5 hours mowing the lawn; by this time the lawn varied from 8-15". When I was done, the lawn was cut, but covered by a thick blanket of grass clippings. I figured the lawn was cut, but would probably die from the clippings. I was always one of those people that thought sweepers were a joke, and they usually ended up in pieces in a shed. With no other options, I figured I would try the sweeper and see what happened. Setup was quick, and adjustments were easy. When I first started using it, it was ok, but I expected more. I had to keep jumping off and pushing the grass back. Turns out, I was going way to slow. It suggests ~3mph; most tractors have a max speed of 5 or 6mph. Once I started going faster (and keep a constant speed), IT WORKED GREAT. In no time, I had 6 FULL hoppers of grass, and a completely clean lawn. I had never guessed a sweeper could work this well. Even if I only use it for grass, it was well worth it. I usually don't write reviews, but if someone is in the same position I was, I hope it helps out. The only complaint I have is the dumping, you can dump the load without leaving the tractor, but have to get off to re clip the dump bar to the unit. All in all, this sweeper changed my views, and saved my lawn.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yard sweeper If you have a very small yard you aught t get a year of use before having to replace the wheels. I only used it three times and the plastic gears on this supposedly heavy duty sweeper sheered all the teeth off. Plastic wheels and hardened pinion gear is not a good mix. It has plastic bushings on the brush shaft that ware and drop the pinion and help sheer the teeth. Instruction manual says 6 mph and o-turn compatible. Manufacturer says that this in error, 2 to three mph max. I feel that this will be a high maintenance item in any application. Better off getting the chain driven sweeper make of your choice. This opinion comes from 26 years of using a yard sweeper. I took it back and purchased a proven make of the past. Good luck to all that bought one of these 44 in. sweepers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good but some issues Though others complained about putting the unit together out of the box, it wasn't horrible. The manual is OK though a few pictures and descriptions could be improved. I believe most DIY-ers will get through it well. You may have to read some steps more than once to understand the action to be taken. Don't rush the build. I'm impressed with the quality of the powder coated surfaces. Glad it wasn't just a quick spray paint job. The hardware (nuts and bolts, etc) are of good quality. Having some trouble finding the proper wheel/brush height setting so the wheels get a good grip. In fairness, the grass has been somewhat wet lately. When the wheels grip, it works excellently. I'm sure I'll find the sweet spot soon. I hate the stupid handle with which you are supposed to be able to dump the bin. Mine came loose while sweeping and caught a branch and proceeded to bend the bin frame. Do what I did, remove it (or don't even install it) and use a rope. The cotter pin method of attaching the handle to the frame is sub par. Pros: overall it is a good unit and I believe it to be a good value. I like it's capacity and size (not a toy). I like the ability to move the hitch to change to position of the sweeper behind the tractor. It definitely is nice to have to sweep up the extra clippings after mowing. No more raking! Cons: the stupid handle In the end, I'm glad I bought it. I did a great deal of comparison shopping prior to the purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont waste your money like i did on this thing honestly folks - this tool may look good but please dont make the same mistake i made by buyimg one. i used it less that ten times and at the recomended speeds. the gears in the wheels that turn the sweeper fin's are plastic and driven by a metal gear. the plastic wheel gears are completely ground down and now the unit is useless. what a piece of junk and could not have been designed to be anything but that. again - i used it less than ten times. get the picture? very disapointed and very upset that i spend my hard earned money on this junk. if you use it one time a year it will last maybe 8-10 years for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SmartSweep I recently purchased the SmartSweep to asist in cleanup. It's not perfect, but well satisfied. Couple of things I've noticed. The debri does not push back to the rear of the hopper, so the hopper is only 1/2 full. Maybe a brush to push debri to the rear of the hopper. Also, if there were a way to disengage the brushes when moving the unit to prevent wear on the drive system. Also this would keep from sweeping additional debri into an already full hopper, which is thrown out from the hopper. I have a ZTR mower with a towing attachment, but the dump handle is not long enough to reach the operator, but works find on a tractor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good Does NOT Last I bought this sweeper at the beginning of last summer and it worked perfect with easy height adjustment easy dumping and adjustable draw bar. I have used it maybe 5 times and 3 sets of wheels later it does not hold up. The teeth on the wheels are plastic and on one set they rolled the other two sets they striped. I called Customer Support and they did send the first set free (I bought the other two) and said you cannot go over 3mph which is stated in the instructions. I weigh railcars at 3mph everyday so I know how fast 3mph is. Well that is not the problem. They just DO NOT hold up the rest of the sweeper is fine but totally useless. Don't waste your money like I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smartsweep 44 I purchased this to pick up leaves in my 5 acre yard full of old Oak trees. I bought this one because it was bigger and had a larger bag. It works great. The dump handle is much better than the rope seen on other models. The brush will get clogged with tree moss every now and then, but I used it to pickup over a dump truck load of leaves in a 4 hour period. No more raking for me. The only bad thing about it is that it doesn't have an intergrated dethacher. They do not make one for this model yet. Maybe one will come out in the near futrue.
