Smart Industries Clean Sweep Crane

Smart Industries Clean Sweep Crane


Name: Clean Sweep
Manufacturer: Smart Industries
Year: Circa 1986
Dimensions: 80"H x 26"W x 29"D

Bought this game off Ebay and picked it up in Philadelphia from an arcade that had gone out of business.  It's a little old and slightly roughed up, but overall in good shape.  The kids love this and have been known to play it for hours.

The Claw Dies
April 24, 2005 -

The crane stopped picking things up last night.  It would drop but wouldn't grab on to anything.  After I calmed down from freaking out over the fact that the game might be hosed... I noticed I still heard the board clicking at the right times when it should be drawing the claw together.  So, my guess was that the signal wasn't making it all the way to the claw.

Well, I got brave and took the claw off, to find that the telephone cord like attachment which holds wires that work the claw was dangling by one of two wires.  The wire had come loose from the solder.  When I tugged at the remaining wire, it too came loose.  So I fired up the soldering iron, stripped the wires back and re-soldered things.  Tested the crane... everything is back in working order.
