The metal portion of the guard is sturdy in build and easy to drop to lift the cowling. It looses a star and almost lost 2 as the plastic cover is was affixed with rivets and they were done poorly and have already dropped off one side. They were easily replaced.
Ok, this is not the easiest thing to install on the lawn mower. It bolts to the front frame and as long as you follow the instructions, you can put it on, but I don't agree with the other reviews that this was quick and easy to just put it on. I am not sure what happened with the review where his fell off either, the one I got was pretty solid, I am not sure how it's possible for it to get pulled off without doing major damage to the mower. Basically, for me it works as intended and looks nice on the mower.
Purchased this tractor bumper for a tractor (24hp 54" deck). I purchased this bumper at the same time as the tractor. I was told the bumper did not come on the tractor so under the associates advice and managers I purchased. Well the tractor came with the bumper and I had to return it. $25 in gas to and from the store two times. Still irritated nobody knew a $3500 tractor came with a bumper??? In any case besides that issue the bumper looked great, it's identical to the one on the tractor, tough rugged and good looking. I'm not fond of the rubber ends but they will do. The bumper quality and fitment all appear excellent with a quality look and feel throughout. Craftsman also has two other style bumpers which are simpler and ook more like a crash bar, they remind me of there green and yellow tractor competitors style.... Id rate this tractor bumper 5 stars!

I'll be honest, I don't have anything in my yard that requires a brush guard, and I'm not worried about hitting anything, I bought this, just because it looks great. I put in on my brand new 2014 YT3000, and it makes it look really aggressive up front! I don't usually go for "bling" but the front end looks pretty plain without something on it, and this is the sharpest looking bumper there is available. I'm sure I'll find some actual uses for it at some point, like having an extra tie off point or something, but really, even as an appearance only modification, it's worth the money. Installed in less than ten minutes with nothing more than a couple of wrenches.
DOES GO FASTER THAN MOST RIDING LAWN TRACTORS, BUT TOO SLOW IN REVERSE. AWKWARD TO USE REVERSE AN GET YOUR HEEL ON THE PEDAL TRANSITION FROM REVERSE TO FOWARD IS ABRUPT AND WILL **** YOU BACK IF YOU DO NOT USE A LIGHT TOUCH ON PEDAL. LESS THAN 8 HOURS ON METER AND IT HAS DEVELOPED A HORRENDOUS GRINDING SOUND IN REVERSE. I'M HOPING THE TRANNY WILL LAST THE SUMMER. SEARS SAY'S TWO YEAR WARRENTY ON TANSMISSION ???

This was easy to install and added not only good looks but functionality. I have a lot of trees and bushes in my yard, so this has helped to protect the front of the tractor from bumps and scrapes that come from mowing the yard.
Great for protecting front end, especially if cutting squared corners, cutting on angles or inclines near thick brush, and for lifting it or dragging it around. Used to pull items while in reverse. My model actually came equipped with this item, so I got a refund from my separate purchase of it.
I pretty much just bought this bumper for its looks. I tried to make my mower look a little tougher. I like the bumper and how it looks on the tractor, I don't like how it could be 3" closer to the tractor hood. There is just a big gap between the two that kind of looks silly. But for functionability, it does the job its suppose to though.
