A Craftsman tractor is a versatile tool that in the wintertime can be converted to a mechanized snow plow. However, a snow blade must be installed on the tractor for it to effectively plow snow. The installation process is different for each snow blade, but the following steps are similar.
Make sure the snow blade will fit your specific model of Craftsman tractor. Not all snow blades are compatible with each Craftsman tractor's front mount.
Lay the screws and bolts that came with the snow blade on a flat mat. This will allow you to identify and reach them during the installation process.
Position the snow blade on the front of the tractor frame. The back of the snow blade will have a bracket with holes on each side that will align perfectly with holes on the front frame of the tractor. Have a friend insert the three to four bolts that attach each side of the snow blade bracket to the tractor frame.
Tighten the nuts on the bolts.
