It’s not a complicated job to attach a snowthrower to your Craftsman, Husqvarna, Ariens, Poulan or Jonserd Tractors. This is just a quick article going through where to get the snow blowers and a spare copy of the manual. It takes about 2 hours the first time and 30 minutes after that.
Yes! There Is a Video!
Let’s start with the manuals.

Here is a chart that lists Craftsman tractors. Any tractor that lists a snow blower other than the 24837/25840 needs the adapter kit above.
Husqvarna also has a specific snow thrower. It is built by the same company for them as the Craftsman snow blowers.
