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: Craftsman Transmission problem

Some of these tractors have a friction wheel that is driven off of a flat wheel on the bottom of the engine drive shaft. The rubber ring on this friction wheel could be worn out, or it could be out of adjustment.

SOURCE: Craftsman 20HP , can't stop freewheeling,

Sounds like your problem is the key in your rear wheel is missing or sheared, you have to remove the wheel @ tire assembly ,pull rubber cap off then clip to remove if one of the keys is sheared or gone it will go into gear and the brake will work ,but they will only stop the shaft without the key it will not move or brake becuase its not attached if you know what I mean.

SOURCE: Tractor Will Not Move And Dies When Brake Is Released

I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.

I seem to have lost about a level and a half of speed. i.e. speed 3 is like previous speed 2, speed 4 is only at an actual speed between 2-3. all undercarriage is clear, motion drive belt is good


Check and see if your gear select handle linkage has not come out of adjustment and check for worn linkages as well. This can cause the transaxle gear box to lag behind one gear and may not achieve 6 gear when fully placed in 6th gear setting. Hope This Helps.

Craftsman Riding Mower (24 HP 42 in cut Model 289254) with throttle issue. Very slow in 6th gear


follow the throttle cable all the way down to the engine. Have some one move the throttle up and down to see if the throttle plate is opening and closing all the way. You can loosen the screw holding the throttle cable and move it back and forth to see if it will allow the throttle plate to open and close correctly. It may have slipped when the assembler tried to tighten it.

Check the adjustment from the lever to the transaxle, if the linkage is ok the transaxle may be suffering from age and has leaking internal seals.

Craftsman model 917.271814 will not go forward or reverse. Heard a "click" and mower stopped moving; engine and blade still running.


Check the drive belt that runs back to the transaxle,it sounds like it broke.If the belt is in the pulley check to see if the transaxle pulley is turning when the clutch is out.Also make sure both wheel axle keys are in the rear wheels.If all this checks out the transaxle may have broke,look underneath to see if it is broken there.
