Looks Good- But NOT for the YT 4000
Bumper looks good but is not a easy fit for my new YT4000 Tractor (a Sears ********). It was listed as fitting this model, but it took almost two hours for two people to reach the areas where you need to put bolts in and washers and get it so that it was level. The bolts slip through the back end of the bumper slots and you need washers to hold them. This looks really cheap and Sears could at least make sure the bolts, washers and screws were black so they are hidden. The instructions say to bolt in three places, but we were only able to match two holes on each side up with the frame. I did not take the guards off since they were held with sheet metal screws and did not want to take a chance that they would stay in place after removing them. There is little space to maneuver while working and honestly a person with average size hands does not have enough room to work. I am not sure I would put "Craftsman" on this product.

Looks good

I ordered this and picked up at a Sears store. Only one on hand. When I went to put it on, I found it was all scratched up. Couldn't return it being no more at the store. So I had to repaint it. Who would want to put it on a brand new mower and have it all scratched up. I suggest to check it out before leaving the store.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman T2200 19HP 42 "Cut

I bought this June 16th. On the 18th I bought the double bumper. I waited until this morning June 30th to install it because of the instructions. Follow the instructions and you will end up having to take off the hood and the muffler shield. Do yourself a favor and use the box it came in for supporting the bumper while working on it. I never took off the hood or the shield. It only used 4 of the bolts that were in the box. There is only one way basically that this goes on there. The instructions are worthless. I love the look of the double bumper. I only gave 4 stars because of the instructions. I also ordered the Hour meter for it and guess what NO INSTRUCTIONS AT ALL.

Easy Installation

Installation only required about 10 minutes on a 917.xxxxxx (Husqvarna manufactured) tractor. The included instructions were decent, however, the instruction to remove the muffler shield may be disregarded. With the muffler shield left in place, and the bumper resting on the empty shipping box, the 4 carriage bolts were easily installed. The engine cover/hood when fully opened does however slightly make contact with the top of the bumper (just barely). It would have been nice to have at least a 1/4" of clearance, however the mounting height of the bumper is not "adjustable"; the bolt holes on the bumper brackets and the corresponding holes on the tractor frame only align in the predetermined manner. Based on the many comments regarding the plastic end-caps deforming and falling out due to the heat of the exhaust being directed onto the bumper, I opted to not bother installing them.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Bumpin

I like the way the Bumper looks mounted on my Craftsman Lawn Tractor. The mounting instructions was not as helpful as it could have been. With all the extra hardware, it left me wondering if there was something I might have forget to hook up. Also some of the mounting holes weren't where they said it was supposed to be, it didn't take long to figure it out.

my baby now got bumpers

easy to install takes about 1/2 hour. scared me when i removed the shield to get to bolts and my muffler fell on the floor. maybe i wasn't supposed to take those 2 bolts out, but just put it back together when the bumper was on. Took away one star cause I think this should of come with the tractor. Like buying a new car without a bumper?...??

directions not very good

directions not very good-2 types of tractor in directions-after an hour just threw directions away and figured it out easy- now fits good and seems well-built and $50.00 is pretty cheap-it will protect if hit a tree or something i wood buy again but i should not need too.

Dual Bar Bumper - One for the Road

The bumper is of a good quality material, but it does take two folks to install. Plan on one hour installation time. Once installed, the bumper does add to the appearance of the lawn mower. If your in for looks, I recommend the purchase.

Awesome bumper for the price

This bumper is easy to install and it wasn't necessary to remove the hood on my YT 3000 for install like the instructions stated and I found that the box came in handy since it is just the right height to hold up the bumper while you line up the bolt holes if you are doing it by yourself. I am very happy with it and it looks sharp!

Craftsman dual bumper

Installation went very well. The bumper is sturdy and should do a great job of protecting the front of the mower. I had one issue with the carrage bolts. They didn't allow the mounting brackets to come tight to the frame of the mower. I used the large washers provided to compensate for this. Other than that everything was slick.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Okay, but not great!

Bought this bumper bar last year to help protect the front of my new YT4000. Installation was fairly easy & the bar looks good. My only complaint is the plastic end caps that go in each end of the horizontal tubes do not stay in. After about a month after installing the bar, 3 of the 4 end caps had come out, loosing 2 of the 3. When I attempted to get replacements, I was told they were not available. The salesman @ the Sears store where I bought the bar suggested I just returned the whole bar & get another one. I figured another bar would just do the same thing, so I elected to just keep the one I had. Now all 4 end tubes caps are gone. Sears sells parts for everything else, it would be nice if they would provide these end caps as a "part" available for sale as well. Or maybe these end caps should be pre-installed in the bar.

Looks Good, but Be Prepared to Toss the Installation Directions

The dual bumper looks great on the lawn tractor, and it does seem like it will prevent damage to the front end from minor bumps and scratches. I was pleased with the overall appearance. However, the bumper's pre-drilled bolt holes do not necessarily line up with the available bolt holes on the Craftsman LT2000. The directions for the bumper installation do not complement the set-up ... so, be prepared to simply use two bolts on each side. If you use one bolt, lock washer, and nut in one hole set, then use the lag screw (bolt) in a second hole, it works fine. These parts come from both the A and B bags. I hate to suggest that you will be "winging it" ... but, two holes do line up fairly nicely if you do not necessarily follow the directions. Hope this helps ...

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Looks sharp

Tractor was a Mothers Day gift from my son, however I rec'd a lot of help from my local Sears store in being taught about the new features on my Craftsman. Buying the "bumper " was my choice, not only because it looks sharp, it is protection for tractor headlights and front end..."woman driver" you know. Also, as my daughter will be "learning" to run the mower, a ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
