Genuine Parts For Your Craftsman Snowblower Tractor Attachment:
Welcome! In this article, I will help you get the Craftsman parts, download free manuals and find troubleshooting guides for your Craftsman Tractor Mounted Snow Thrower. The list of model numbers for parts is below.
Don’t know your model number? There is a model plate on the snow thrower housing. The Model number will start with 486. If the Prefix is any other number ask in the comments below and I can help you find parts.
When you click on the Model Number link below or any of the parts diagrams you will be taken to the O.E.M. (Original Equipment Manufacturer) site for genuine Craftsman parts. There you can view the parts diagrams in full size and purchase the parts you need. The website I send you to is safe to use and you will get the exact part you purchase/order. Be sure to look at the very top of this page before you go to that website to see if there are any discount or coupon codes available today to help you save money on your parts order.
Will It Fit My Tractor?
First, the current model Craftsman 24837 Dual-Stage Snowblower Tractor Attachment will fit all Craftsman Lawn & Garden tractors with model numbers that start with 917. from 2005 to the present. This snow blower will also fit the Craftsman Pro tractors (247) made after 2015 with this adapter kit. Craftsman 68030 Snow Thrower Mounting Kit.
Using the same adapter kit the Agri-Fab 45-0491 50″ Snow Thrower Attachment w/ Electric Lift will fit the same tractors as above but it’s a big, heavy unit so I suggest only fitting it on tractors with the larger rear wheels (garden tractors)
Second, No one makes a snow blower to fit the smaller lawn tractors under $1500 that have a model number starting with 247.
Third, If you have a used snow blower with a 486 prefix there is a good chance it will fit your 2005 or newer Craftsman BUT – and this is a big but – if you bought it from someone else there is a good chance the brackets/belts are wrong for your tractor or parts are missing. You can get most parts but it can easily cost you $400 to make it fit.
Last, Snowblower attachments with model numbers starting with 842 will not fit. The company that made them went out of business in the 90’s and there are no parts available. Don’t waste your money on scrap iron.
Craftsman Snow Thrower Tractor Attachment Manuals:
Owners manuals are still available for most snow blowers and snow thrower attachments. When you click on any of the links on this page and go to the parts site there will be an “Owner’s Manual” button. When you click on that button the owner’s manual will pop up. You can read it there, download it for free, or print it from your printer.
You may also purchase a printed, bound copy of the manual for many of the newer models. That is located in the parts listings on the parts diagram pages if available.
