Generally, the model number on Craftsman equipment is found on a sticker or metal plate somewhere on the machine. However, the location of this sticker varies depending on the type of equipment.
On Craftsman walk-behind mowers, the model and serial numbers are located on a sticker on the back of the deck between the lower handle mounts. For Craftsman riding lawnmowers, the model and serial numbers are found on the underside of the seat or on the frame beneath the seat. Typically, the model and serial numbers for Craftsman snow blowers are found somewhere on the back of the snow blower. The model number nameplate on Craftsman radial arm saws is generally located on the front left corner underneath the saw table.
Knowing the model number is important, as it tells a customer exactly which parts and accessories fit the specific piece of equipment. Using the model number, it is possible to search for replacement parts and accessories on the Sears PartsDirect website. The model number also allows the customer to find and download the owner's manual for their equipment on this website.
As of 2015, Craftsman produces a wide range of indoor and outdoor power equipment, including grass trimmers, chainsaws, air compressors, barbecue grills and leaf blowers.
