You must get a longer belt and, install an idler pulley
your craftsman dealer has the conversion kit parts

Testimonial: "that does make sense, although this blower was installed on this tractor when i bough it and it worked fine, i took it off earlier this year to install my mower. im using all the same parts and i know im not missing anything. did i possibly miss a step during installation or something like that?"

SOURCE: mounting snow blade to lawn tractor

It attaches the the front of the tractor. Similar to a plow to a truck. If you don't have the brackets, you will need those, or make your own. You can see a picture of the brackets if you go to sears.com. Click on the PartsDirect link at the top, and enter the blade model number.

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman riding mower V belt getting chewed

I believe you may have the belt over one or more of the belt retainers next to the pulleys. They are 5 or 6 inches long and about a 1/4 inch in diameter. You have to loosen them when you put the belt on then adjust them to where they are just barely touching the back of the belt. They keep the belt from jumping off.

Will snowblower attachment 190-832 fit a 2006 yard machine lawn tractor


Most of the Yard Machine lawn tractors have a welded tube front axle and they are not strong enough to handle the weight of a snow thrower.

The snow thrower is generic but you will need the correct mounting brackets and center frame for your tractor. Go to the agrifab website, call the help number and ask them if they have a mounting kit for your tractor. You will need the model number off the nameplate on your tractor frame for them to help you.

I'm trying to attach a Model# LST42 snowblower to a 26hp Craftsman riding mower. Was wondering if you had a manual for the installation & where i could get it


Here is the manual for the snowblower; http://www.odref.com/agri-fab/SnowThrowers/LST42.pdf
You may want to call Agri-Fab at (800) 448-9282 first to make sure your snowblower has the correct brackets to fit the Craftsman tractor.
Have the numbers off the snowblower nameplate and the model number of your tractor (it's under the seat)

How do I attatch the heavy spring that helps lift my snowblower to my 416-8 toro snowblower


lift the snow blower up as far as it will go and block it there, attach one end of the heavy spring to the place it attaches on the tractor now attach a come-a-long to the free end of the spring and using the come-a-long stretch out the spring until it is longer then you need it to attach to the other spot it fits on the tractor, pry it over to the spot on the tractor that it goes and slowly let off the tension on the come-a-long until the spring is firmly in its correct position on the tractor. One tip when you attach the spring to the come-a-long use a piece of rope or wire between the come-a-long hook and the end of the spring, so that you have room to attach the spring to the tractor and just remove the rope or wire when in place and you are done. Hope This Helps Don

Is there a GENERIC Snow thrower for John Deere 110?


Two Stage - Snowblower - Snow thrower - Bercomac All of the Bercomac attachments are interchangeable on the same quick hitch mounting. Bolts on in minutes. What a great idea for people who have more than one tractor or buy a new one. No more having to go and buy all new attachments for the new small tractor, just buy a different model hitch kit if it doesn't use the same one. The resale value is preserved when you can sell your attachments to be used on another size or model lawn and garden tractor.
