Who Made My Craftsman?

This is for U.S. Craftsman products. It does not work for Canadian, European or Austrailian models. To find who made your lawn tractor, etc., look at the first three numbers before the decimal point.

The first 5 numbers after the decimal combined with the first three make up the model number. numbers after the fifth spot are build/minor revisions to the original product.

Model Number 917. These products are made by Husqvarna. Older products may have Electrolux or American Yard Products (AYP) which were acquired by Husqvarna years ago. Roper was the company before AYP.

Model Number 247. These products are made by MTD.

When was it made?

This only works for products with a 917. or 247 serial number.  It also does not work for Canadian, European or Austrailian models. To find the age of your Craftsman lawn tractor, riding mower or zero-turn mower you will need to use the serial number. It’s usually located on a tag or decal under the seat.

Serial Number: The first two numbers are the month. The third and fourth numbers are the day. The fifth and sixth numbers are the year. 

Model Number For Attachments. Attachments with model number beginning with 486 are made by Agri-Fab. These attachments “generally” fit riding mowers built between 2005 and 2017.

Will my Craftsman Snow Blower fit?

Snowblower attachments with model numbers other than 486 will not fit any Craftsman lawn or garden tractor made after 1997.  For Example, there are still quite a few Craftsman 2-stage snow blower attachments floating around with the prefix 842. This company, Haban went out of business in 1997. It will not fit any tractor made after that date and you can not find parts for it anywhere except auction sites like eBay.
