Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the Craftsman Grass Catcher and whether it will fit your Craftsman tractor. I will be happy to help you with this.

Upon review of these models, I am sorry to have to inform you that this grass catcher will not work with your tractor. I will list the areas where you will encounter issues.

1. Your tractor has a 38" deck on it. The grass catcher you listed is made to fit a 42" deck. Unfortunately that means the opening on the side of the deck and the opening on lower chute of the catcher will not match up.

2. The drawbar on the back of your tractor is not the correct design to attach the catcher's support assembly.

3. When using a grass catcher, it is important to use hi-lift blades on the deck. Hi-lift blades create extra air lift under the deck to help  throw the grass clipping higher, which in turn, makes it easier for the grass to be lifted up the catcher chute. There are no hi-lift blades for your tractor.

I reviewed the 38" grass catcher we have available, but unfortunately it will only work with our models made after 2006. Based on the model number of your tractor, it looks to be much older than that. I am sorry we do not have a grass catcher that I can guarantee will work with your tractor.

I recommend you consider investing in a lawn sweeper. Because a lawn sweeper  it simply pulls behind the tractor, it would not have the same issues as the grass catcher. The lawn sweeper has a universal hitch and can be attached to the back of any tractor. Sweepers are also more versatile and can be used for grass, leaves, pine cones, pine needles, etc. I have included the link for you to view the sweepers we have available at this time.

I hope this answers your question. If I can be of any further assistance, please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.
