Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised Easy install which took around 1 1/2hr following the step by step instructions, fit perfectly on my Craftsman LT.winch works well, I wasn't sure how it was going to perform, but it will easily push 10-12" of powder. tire chains are a must though. I don't have weights on my tractor yet, but i do get stuck when reversing sometimes, so i plan on getting some. when going forward it is amazing what my little tractor can push. the only gripe I have, is that the blade only lifts around 12" off the ground, so it's tough to pile snow well. Also, another bonus, is that once the blade is installed, it only takes about 30 seconds to take it on and off, it clicks into the mounting bracket, which stays on the tractor. the winch also stays on the tractor. from what i can tell, the mounting bracket will work with the snowblower attachment as well, so there is no need to buy 2 different lift systems if you happen to own both attachments.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More Trouble Than It's Worth Two years ago I upgraded to this blade from a 42 inch Craftsman blade. I immediately experienced problems with a trip switch on the lift assembly that I had to disable to allow the winch to work. Also each year the push frame bracket that attaches the blade to the lift assembly broke under normal usage conditions. The bracket is under-designed and is very frustrating to replace. Before installing my third bracket I had a welder reinforce the breakpoints so hopefully this one will last longer. My biggest complaint however is the blade left/right tilt which only allows for a 20 degree angle of the blade. If there is over 2 inches of snow a lot of snow will be deposited out the uppers edge of the blade meaning you have to shovel the area two or more times to clear the snow. My previous smaller Craftsman blade had a greater angle, and I've found 3 competing blades with angles of 25, 30 and 30 degrees respectively. Bottom line is that for as much as I like the Craftsman products I recommend to stay away from this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow Blade Very good unit, but had to buy the side kit from Bercomac because Sears does not carry what they advertise in the catalogue. If you have and older tractor check out Bercomac who actually made this. Very easy to use and put on the tractor.

re: Winch switch 48" blade with electric lift

Winch switch has numbers 1 - 6, where do the red, green and black wires go?
Asked by:
Hello, In the owner’s manual, it is clearly explained. CONNECTING THE WIRES: - The posts on the relay are identified by numbers. (1,2,3,4). - Install the wires from the winch on the posts of the relay. - Red wire (+) on post # 3. - Black wire (-) on post # 4. - Connect the red wire from the winch (limit switch) with the green wire from the relay. IDENTIFY THE IGNITION WIRE: - Place the clip of the Hi/Low tester on the negative post (-) on the battery or a metal surface without any paint. - Turn the ignition key to the position: Accessory. - Insert the tip of the tester in a hole at the back of the starter (switch) make sure to touch the metal part of the wire (on most tractors, it is the A1 terminal on the ignition switch that is used for accessories. Before connection, verify with the Hi/Low tester). - If the tester's light turns on, turn the ignition key to the position, Off. The light must turn off. You have identified the ignition wire, if not repeat the operation on another wire. INSTALL THE CONTROL WIRE: - Join the ignition wire and the red wire from the winch control with the instant connector. - Connect the black wire of the winch control to the black wire on the relay. - Connect the green wire of the winch control with the red wire of the winch (limit switch). Thanks for shopping Sears.

Comment se procurer la lame seulement car j'ai déjà le sous-châssis avec treuil de la souffleuse.

Le modèle 717 961 821 10 est redondant par son kit de treuil électrique dont je n'ai pas besoin en double.
