:question: I bought a Craftsman mower today.

On the hood it says (Craftsman-11) 18 HP-Twin DieHard Briggs & Stratton

18/42 5-speed near step/rb

Deck says (QC-System 3in1 Convertible 42')

Under seat says
SEARS
(Model# 917.257562)

(Serial# 090794A-004313)


Thanks for any info. Bronson

P.S.I would go to Sears page but I cant use PDF Format.

If I am not mistaken, the 1st 6 numbers of the serial number are the manufacture date. So the 090794 would be September 7th, 1994.

And it would not hurt to confirm this at AYP.

:( Thanks Bob, That is also what TechDave told me. He said the 2nd 6 numbers following the production date is the amount of that model made up to the numberd date.
