    Well ive found a copy of the Agri-Fab #LST42 its made by Craftsman, Model#24838. Sears apparently sells Agri-Fab also. The Craftsman is also $400 cheaper. It only fits Husqvarna/Craftsman and other sister brands ie. Poulan and Murray 2006 or newer till 2010. I can by it at sears without shipping costs. BONOUS!. I called a small engine shop and they said. "Garuanteed fit." It will also fit older models with an adapter kit made by Craftsman aswell. I have no problems returning it if it dont fit the lady told me from Sears even if they order it in. The Craftsman even COMES WITH the rear counter weight drum that you can fill with sand. The Agri-Fab dosen't you have to buy that separate.

    I Hope this info can help others. I'm bound to find out when my blower comes in next week.

The only way to be sure is to take down the model number and call Sears near you.

    the guy i talked to at the sears power equipment department was useless he kept telling me to sell it and buy won with a cast iron front axel and he can give me a deal. I'm guessing he was a salesmen that works on comission. I'm not buyin that one bit ive seen lots with the steel front axle. The Agri-Fab LST42 that i was just looking at i think is my best bet but i can't find a supplier near ottawa, ontario

    I see your dilemma. The softer front axle is best left without the snow plow but if you want to use it just one season - why not try it . there will some simple modifications is all.

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

The snowblower attachment manual is available in the manufacturers' website. If not, go to the Murray website. They manufactured these tractors for Sears. You may find the manual there.

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.
