Craftsman riding mowers are an excellent choice

Perhaps the most critical part to replace regularly on a riding mower is its blades. Depending on the amount of acreage you are mowing and how often, blade replacement will be necessary to keep your riding mower operating at high efficiency (and preventing extra time spent mowing and the frustration it brings in the process). When purchasing replacement blades for your riding mower, make sure you know the mower specs, since blades come in a variety of sizes and styles. For instance, there are standard blades for grass cutting, and mulch blades for mulching. Make sure you choose the blades that are right for the task.
Parts requiring less often replacement on a Craftsman riding mower are its belts. Belts couple the motor to the wheels, blades, and other parts of the mower. Belts can snap or tear due to regular use, just as in cars, but can also fail due to increases in friction in the pulley, which the belt rubs against. Therefore, if the belt appears to have failed after only a short amount of time, a new pulley may be needed as well.
Depending on how rough or hilly your terrain is, you may need to replace the wheels or tires on your Craftsman riding mower at some point. This is not a difficult job to do yourself, as long as you have the right tools and technique. The wheels can be removed and replaced by using a crescent wrench to alternately loosen and tighten the bolts that hold them onto the axle. To remove the tires and then put the new ones on, a couple screwdrivers and C-clamps will be required to fit them fully around the wheels. There are several online resources, including videos, available to walk you through this process.
Unbeknownst to many, Craftsman also offers a variety of attachable accessories for its riding mowers. To clear your lawn, grounds, or driveway of snow, consider picking up the snow blade and mounting it to your mower. It includes adjustable skid shoes for use on smooth surfaces or rocky driveways and its blade can pivot left and right from the mower seat. It will clear snow in record time, saving you hours of shoveling.
If you are interested in mulching, the Craftsman mulch kit incorporates six unique cutting surfaces to cut and re-cut grass clippings into a fine mulch that sinks into the lawn to decompose quickly.
To break up rock quickly and easily, consider the Craftsman universal rear tiller. It can be conveniently adjusted to till up to 5.5 inches deep, in increments of 1 inch, and includes a shock-absorbing hitch for smooth operation.
There are many other Craftsman attachments, for virtually every task and every season, that will work with your riding mower. By replacing parts on your Craftsman riding mower when needed and leveraging its power to do all kinds of yard tasks, there is no end to the benefits it can bring to your landscaping.
