      Comes in handy.

      Saves the front end and you can use it to lift the mower up if you have a hoist to change the blades.

      Craftsman Bumpers should be standard on all garden tractors

      My Craftsman GT5000 has one of these bumpers on it.  It didn't come standard on the tractor when it was new but the service technician said, "you really need one to protect your front end from damage."  The bumper not only makes the tractor look good but it really does protect the front end from damage.  The bumper is one of the best attachments you can get and they don't cost a lot of money.

      Easy to put on!

      Got it home and put it on in less than 30 minutes. Really dresses up the lawn mower. It's already came to good use. I would have had hood damage otherwise.

      Great, inexpensive protection for those unexpected crashes!

      My 94 year old father drove out in the street with his mower and didn't see the car coming around the corner.  If he hadn't had a bumper on his mower his entire front end would be gone.  Fortunately for him, the bumper did it's job and protected the frame of the mower.  It was bent up and pushed back into the tire, but replacing it was a lot cheaper than replacing the mower.  As for the car, it was bent in from the front panel all the way to the rear panel!  More importantly, no one was injured!!!

      Tractor bumper

      My 70+ dear old dad bought a new LTS 1500 and he likes to get real close to stuff so I bought him this bumper for fathers day and installed it in about 10 minutes and I'm sure it has saved the grill of the new tractor many times already.

      A Must Have for the LTS 1500

      This bumper is a must have for the LTS 1500 (or the other similar brand models) to prevent front end damage. Best of all it only took 10 minutes to install. If you have an LTS 1500 disregard the instructions, get the two self tapping bolts out of Bag B, lay the bumper on the box (after installing the caps) to help position it for you and you'll see the two upper bolts that have to be removed. Remove those bolts, slide the bumper in, reinstall those bolts and install the new self tapping bolts in the lower positions. I set mine on the second hole but you can use the third hole to have the bumper even closer. It will not interfere with the hood. Ten minutes and you're ready for your ice tea. :)

      DGS 6500 garden tractor

      I bought this bumper for my DGS 6500 garden tractor last year, just got around to putting it on. I didn't have to remove the hood or plates that the instructions tell you too. It was a little tricky getting the bolts into the pre-drilled holes, but I did it, and never removed any parts off my tractor

      Bumper -25499

      Just bought an LTS 1500 with a bagger and got a free bumper that won't fit. Calls for mounting holes that don't exist. Even with parts in bags "a" and "b", nothing works. Called the toll free number and can't get the mfg until Monday. Bummer; paid extra for a Saturday delivery. Bagger lower chute near deflector isn't the best of fits either; even the tech on the phone was unsure how it mounted and also questioned why three sets of instructions/choices for that part. Hope it cuts grass well when the time comes.

      Bumper

      bought this bumper on sale for $29.99...directions called for either single suspension or dual and muffler shields...all different looks than my LT1000. But I had it mounted in about 15 minutes..used the middle hole and everything fits good, hood raises and stays up by itself. The washers for the single back bolt need to be bigger I think. Satisfied with the look

      I just installed this bumper on my DGS6500 Garden Tractor. Installation took an average amount of time and effort. The hood doesn't touch the bumper when open. It hasn't been "field tested" yet but, for minor to average bumps and oops,' this should hold up well. It also adds a more professional look to the tractor. For the price, I would recommend it to anyone doing average yard/garden work.

      Great addition!

      Really, the tractor should come with one of these, but since it doesn't, this is a good add-on to protect your investment, Believe it or not, it is possible to drive into something and the plastic hood would be kaput in that case. This little bumper (on sale) was a good buy and pretty easy to install. Seems solid, too!

      Great Bumper

      We just bought our craftsman LT2000 model # 28803 a few weeks ago. We also bought the 2 bin bagger along with it so our bumper was free. easy to put on after studying the directions. ended up having to use the 2 self tapping bolts and lock washers that came with the kit. bumper is real sturdy and hood opens just fine. used the middle hole on the bumper and it looks good too. so far have not hit anything yet and hope I don't. like the tractor too does a nice job on the lawn.

      Not a great fit on my Craftsman 21 HP 42" Mower

      Not a great fit. I like the look of it, and it was easy to install, but after installation, the hood will not open fully. Now to service anything under the hood, you have to use a broomstick to prop open the hood. Put another way, the bumper when installed does not allow the proper clearance for the hood to open up completely. In my opinion, based on my YS 4500 Craftsman Model 917.276620, this bumper does not fit properly, and needs to be redesigned for a better fit. Otherwise it's a good accessory to have and protects your mower in case you accidentally slam into a tree or fence, which happens to everyone once in a while.

      It bolted right on to my Poulan PD25ph48STA tractor! Use the washer to tighten-up the rear slots, no problem. Looks good and clears the hood opening. Would recommend for other tractors, there are 3 holes in front and a slot for the rear.

      Fits Poulan Also

      I recently bought a Poulan Pro pb22h48yt Hydro from Sutherland Lumber (they are made by Husqvarna just like Craftsman tractors) and this fits on there perfect. It seems very sturdy, the only thing I didn't like was the fact that the rear bolts don't actually fasten down the plate in the back they just keep it from moving but it is not a big deal. I really think that it will help protect my investment in case I bump into something.

      awesome bumper

      I just purchased a 1996 Craftsman Lawn Tractor in need of repair. The first add-on I purchased was this front bumper. The hood has marks from past encounters already...no need to be looking for a hood. Purchased bumper on sale for $29.99, excellent buy and very easy to install on my older tractor...about 20 minutes. I needed help with spreading the mounting brackets, but other than that it was a simple bolt-on. The instructions are easy to follow, just read them!

      Caveat

      Bought this bumper when I bought I my new LT 1000 Craftsman. It says this bumper "Fits all Craftsman tractors. Easy-to-install." Tain't necessarily so. My Newly purchased in Sears 2007 lawn tractor was made in 2006. This bumper is 1/2 inch too wide for the frame. The bolts that come with it are designed for the new style frame with a plain hole. The holes in the frame of my tractor are Threaded for a smaller bolt. When I took it back, they showed me the holes, I said Yep, but mine not like that. We finally found one like mine, and lo and behold they agreed with Me !! I've seen this bumper on several new 2007 tractors in the show room, so I can say it do fit them, but certainly not ALL, if you include my 2006 model. I need to find an older bumper I guess to fit my new tractor. BTW the assembly packet with my bumper was missing a nut. Called the 1-800 number provided in the instructions. The booklet dosen't say so, but I found you Can't do that on a week end or after 5 p.m. Mon-Fri.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
