      simply doesn't work

      I brought this kit home and tried to mount the bracket so that I could use Scoop on Troy Bilt Bronco riding mower. Well? bolt holes for the main brackets line up but the support linkage of brackets interfere with steering linkage big time. :-( I'm not sure if the manufacturer actually built the parts and tested on other riding mowers/tractors. They must have designed this on the paper only. This mounting kit simply doesn't work. This is going back to Sears for refund. Most disappointing product from Sears. They should take this product off the shelf.

      Painful install, needs unmounted after use.

      This kit is required if you want to use the Craftsman 16" High Garden Tractor Snow and Dozer Blade (Model# 24414) OR Craftsman Front Tractor Scoop (Model# 24847) on the MTD made PGT9000 (Source 247 - model # 28906 , 28980 , 28672 , 28981, 28984)

      • The Mowing Deck needs to be removed and has to stay off as long as you have this kit installed on the tractor.
      • The channel mount bolts and nuts are extremely difficult to fasten. Cannot use sockets or ring wrenches. Only open-ended spanners can be used, which means, you can turn the nuts about a 1/4 round at a time. Being 'nylock' nuts, you can't even finger-tighten them and then use the spanner to fully tighten.
      • When you want to mow, the channels need to be taken off the tractor, as you cannot raise the deck with the channels installed and if you're willing to live with that, the tubes which run from the channels to the front brackets interfere with the deck belt. So, you HAVE to take this kit off.
      • Repeat above steps next time you want to use your plow or scoop.

      This mounting kit is designed by someone with no real world experience. The description for the bucket scoop says -

      • After1 time installation of mounting brackets, you can remove/re-install scoop w/o tools
      • Mounting brackets can remain on tractor without interference with mowing deck

      Well, they didn't say the mounting kit is a 1 time installation. No thought was given to anything in this design. Even the cotter pins for the "support link" have to be taken off every time. At least, they could have provided "hitch pins" instead of the cotter pins.

      All in all, this kit is a total waste of time, money and effort.

      Whoever designed this kit is, for all practical purposes a complete moron, with no real world experience.

      The lack of a proper mount kit for the dozer blade and front scoop takes a lot away from the (source 247 aka MTD made) PGT tractors.

      Shame on you, Agri-Fab and Sears for designing and marketing this POS!

      Even 1 star is giving this produce too much credit.
