Re: Craftsmen 42" high speed sweeper
If memory serves me right, Agri-Fab makes the sweepers for Sears. I bought a 42" Brinly, not for the width but for the hopper capacity and the larger wheels and brushes. I'm not very happy with the Brinly and if I were shopping for a new sweeper, the Agri-Fab Smartsweep would be my choice.
One problem with the wider sweepers is that they can high-centre on humps and/or miss low spots on swales. There are places I can't go with the 42" Brinly in tow that my 42" mower just barely fits through.
The problem is they want to make them wider so your choices are limited if you need something narrower.
I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
