Seems like a good price compared to other sweepers.

I've had this one on my watch list for a long time. At least a couple years. The $40 S&H is a big killer. It often goes on sale for 80-90% off though like it is now. The finish has a lot of damage (layer peeling), 2 tires are missing.

Yea that one is in considerably better shape for sure. Also no handle on that one either - I wonder how they all get their handles missing?

Well, I caved

And bought it. The finish peeling you saw was the rubber bag seal - it was in upside down. The paper label is almost mint and after some oil the metal top looks better too. Interestingly, unlike the one from Goodwill, mine does not have a metal plate behind the roller wheels, just wood. The veneer on the very back is warped, but it is in a spot where I can peel it all away, stain the wood, and no one will know the difference. Pics to come!

"--on my watch list for a long time--"

You can watch for at least 3 very similar types in my back room behind the back room.Their long time is quickly running out as it is time for a load to the scrap metal yard.

You know what Goodwill and antiques shops are, right? Facebook ads and Craigslist?
