    old craftsman tractor

    hey folks,im new here,love this place. can anyone tell me how i can identify a craftsman lawn tractor. the previous home owner left it there for me when i purchased my house and i fired it up a few days ago and to my surprise it fired up and works great. it does not have a hood and the only thing it says ''6 speed,42 inch deck'' and the engine is a kohler commander 14 hp i think. any info will be appreciated.

    Hi Big Jay and welcome to the forum, Congratulations on your home and mower to boot.
    I know you said the hood is missing but does the rest of mower look similar to this?



    Post back the model and serial numbers according to the following illustrations and we can determine what year and model that you have.

    Pictured above is a pretty typical Craftsman rider with a Briggs & Stratton engine. The model and serial numbers are located on a sticker right under the seat or on the bottom of the seat itself. It also could be located on the back of the mower above the trailer hitch hole. The model number usually begins in "917."
