Installed this on my lawn tractor as per the instructions ( it's a direct bolt on part ) and 15 minutes into mowing the welds on the mounting bracket broke and down it came first on me then fell to the side and got under the rear wheel taking my fender in the process. I would not recommend this product at all or just about anything else from Sears since they were bought by K-mart !
It seems since they have become one the service and quality has gone down hill what a shame too because there once was a time when the name CRAFTSMAN meant something.
I have been looking for one of these for years and finally found one at the Sears Outlet for a great price. It was easy to put together except for when I got to the next to last step which was placing the cross bows in the overhead section. I soon discovered why it was on sale at a very low price. The holes for the crows bows was missing on one side. Therefore, I had to drill 3 holes on the left side for the bows to fit in. No big deal but somebody in China forgot to drill the holes for the other side. I thought it funny that QA missed this major defect.

The Sun shade works well to keep the sun off of you while mowing. Only problem is that the sun shade tends to move more than I would like. Needs a beeter way to attach to the rea of the mower. Overall does work to keep you cool
Frame is too heavy. It will droop in front and sometimes come down in your face. When it is up right it balances all over the place. Now it does shade you when it is working properly. It needs to be redesigned. Front not as wide and no square corners to catch on things. Lighter material on frame. Four point connection instead of the two. Last the cover needs to drop over the sides 8 to 10 inches. The cost might double but it would be better than mine in the trash.
Great idea, a little fabrication and it works well, it mounts under the seat with 6 bolts but I also mounted it to the back fender behind the seat with 2 more made it wobble a lot less 8 blots are better than 6 and then in the front I used some string to pull the top down a tad ran the string thru the factory holes in the dash and this shade is the bomb take your time and work with it, you have to put some American on it because it was probably built in China...Jes saying

On my first day, I was excited to have a new shade for my tractor. While driving around in the extreme Florida summer sun, I was happy to be in the shade all of the time not just when mowing under the trees. Well on one occassion I was backing up and the next thing I see is the white canopy being shreaded under my mower. The nuts on the supports vibrated loose and the shade fell backwards, I didn't notice as I was in a shaded area, and it came off the frame, as I backed up I ran it over. I wasn't looking over my left shoulder or i might have seen it, now my wife says "You could have bought a lot of hats for the ost of that shade!" so now I am out the money and the embrassement. Just wear a hat and save your self the aggrevation the frame isn't made well, I tightened the bolts to the point of nut bending the cheap tubing they went through.
Definately not worth over $100 for a soft top and metal tubes. Flops around as to the base mounts to the thin sheet metal on the rear of the mower. I returned it to Sears and got a refund.

I thought I already wrote a review for this but somehow it disappeared. Anyway, all of these reviews are thoughtful but some are just so lame. I can see why the US is going down the tubes. I see some reviews say it fell apart immediately...then take it back it's obviously a lemon and Sears will make good. My guess is you didn't tighten the bolts enough. My shade kind of did the same as Cajun Pris, in which the top was pulled off by a passing tree branch, was sucked up by the deck, chewed up and spit out. All in all, I'd say the design isn't bad if it is installed correctly. They obviously found a reason not to fasten it in the front, so that it would only be supported in the back and out of the way of obstructions. It has some faults but still pretty good for how much it costs. What bothers me most is that people will complain because they have to do something to maintain the sunshade. Stop whining! It's called maintenance, Geez! Great product, Sears!!!
