Sweepster model C-48

Recommended Posts

I have the opportunity to buy a sweepeter c-48. I am wondering if anyone has modified one of these to work on a big ten. I know this is made for a later simplicity tractor like the 3314 and they made a different broom for the big ten. I am just wondering what would be involved in making it work and if anyone have done it. thanks for any help

I had what I think was a C-48 sweepster that I used on my JCPenny 494 tractor a few years ago. I sold the sweepster to Johnnysac and he is a huge b-series collector. Mine would have been very easy to install on a b-series tractor and the only modification that I think it would have needed was a way to engage and disengage the drive.even that would not have been very tough because the drive pulley was hinged on an arm that was pinned. I only reason I sold mine was because I got a newer one for my sunstar at a good price and it has power angle which is nice when I sweep driveways and parking lots in the spring for local customers. Good luck on the purchase! Dan

Would be great if you could get ahold of one...I think they would be extrememly useful. I missed one up here probably 10 or 11 months ago. Was selling mounted on a B-110. C
