Craftsman mower deck replacement

Kate I have a 1987 Craftsman 11HP model 917.254230 that had a 38" mower deck. The deck rusted out and needs to be replaced. Can I use a different sized deck or can this tractor only take a 38" deck?


john go back with the 38 in deck the 11 hp wont tote any thing bigger
Kate OK, thanks! I was thinking that would be the case. Besides, the 38" fits perfectly through our backyard gate, so any bigger would be a hassle!

Any suggestions on the best place to buy a deck? I tried the Sears website and they are pretty pricey. I didn't know if there were other companies that make a deck that would fit the Craftsman mowers...


john try american yard products they make craftsman mowers too
Stephen Your locked into the 38" deck size on your model. The hangers, belts brackets changed completely for the 1993-1994 models nothing back fits to the older models.

Dan I have 26 HP Craftsman riding lawnmower with a 54 " deck, would like to replace it with a 46 - 48 " deck. This is a 2009 model. Any one know if this can be done?


Andy I too have a Craftsman lawn tractor (917.270710) with a factory 42" deck that's rusted out and would like to go bigger. It originally had a 17hp Briggs, but I repowered it with a 22hp v-twin, so I know I'd at least have the power to run it. I'm wondering if a larger deck would be a direct fit (if it is and you'd have a part number too that would be awesome). Any help is greatly appreciated!
