How to compare an "older" tractor model to the new models to determine what is the most closely-matched replacement?

Thank you for your question on the replacement tractors.

If you had ground engaging implements like a disc or a plow our items that attached directly to the back slanted draw bar of your tractor then you had a garden tractor.

The 247.28881 is just a light duty lawn tractor.

The 917.253370 is the mower deck model number.

Think what you are looking for what would be comparable is the model 28861 which is a garden tractor. Garden tractor replacement suggestion .

And yes there is a lot of plastic on the outside of the tractors but the frame is all steel.

Because of the age of the old tractors the design and materials have changed somewhat.

All the best with the insurance company.

Hi Sam - Thank you so much for providing the information - we'll review it with our insurance company. I think we're set on the larger tractor but just to confirm: For our older model #917.250551, your're recommending Sears Item #07128861000, Model #GT6000 as the most comparable. On the Sears website, it has an overall rating of 4 stars according to the reviews. For our other model #917.253370, do you have a recommendation on what current model would be most comparable? It was a smaller tractor - only a 42" cut with a Briggs & Stratton 16hp motor. We were able to use this for plowing, rototilling, and any other ground-engaging implements and it worked fine. So even though it was smaller, it was heavy duty and able to do the job we needed. This one has a 3 1/2 star rating so obviously not as well liked as the other. Again, any help you could provide on what you think would be the most comparable current model would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Sam!

Thank you for the update on the tractors. If any of your old tractors were able to use ground engages implements, like a plow, or a harrow or disc, then you are going to need a garden tractor to have a frame and power train that is capable of handling those implements. The olde of the two tractors you had was built with a heavier frame and transmission than todays lawn tractors and if you are going to use it as a ground engaging useage then I would go with a garden tractor. If you are going to just use one tractor for snowblowing or snow plowing and you could then use lighter Yard Tractor that is not a garden tractor for this use. I will give you both of my recommendations below in the link. Sam A.
