Reverse is sluggish 917271920 Craftsman Lawn tractor


Purge the transmission of air as described in your owner's manual. That basic initial troubleshooting should not be overlooked.

If that does not help, check the motion drive belt. If the motion drive belt is worn, replace it as shown in your owner's manual.

If you still have problems, then you could have an internal failure in the transaxle. A service technician would need to diagnose and repair that type of problem.

I hope that this information helps. 

If you need further assistance, let us know.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.

Will snow blower attachement # 486-248531 fit my Craftsman tractor model 917-271920?


Thank you for your question on if the 486.248531 will fit your 917.271920.

You are right that the 486.24839 is the correct snow thrower for your tractor.

The 486.24853 was designed for a tractor with a 48 inch deck so the under carriage is different for mounting the drive system for the snow thrower.

I am sorry that it did not work out for you.
