Stores that sell Craftsman transaxles include eBay.com, SmallEngineSuppliers.com and MowerGraveyard.com. Shoppers can also purchase new or refurbished Craftsman transaxles at Sears service centers or order them for pickup at the store.
MowerGraveyard.com sells tractor parts from a lawnmower junkyard in Pennyslvania. The website only lists parts in good, usable condition. Expired listings of Craftsman transaxles on the site set the price between $100 and $200 dollars for the part.
EBay.com sells hydrostatic transaxles, including the model manufactured for Craftsman machines. Shoppers can check the site periodically for new listings or for transaxles that can be cross-referenced with Craftsman parts. SmallEngineSuppliers.com lists the Tuff Torq HOP K46 transaxle as a replacement rear transaxle for Craftsman lawn tractors. It also lists an MTD Products transaxle that can be used to replace several Craftsman transaxle models.
SearsPartsDirect.com no longer sells the company's Craftsman transaxles because they are too large to ship, and the site does not recommend any substitute parts. It suggests that shoppers seek the part at a local Sears Parts and Repair Center. Sears has repair center locations across the United States that service all types of lawn tractors, no matter where the machines were purchased. Sears Parts & Repair Centers also provide home visits to repair Craftsman mowers. During a scheduled service visit, a Sears technician troubleshoots and diagnoses problems, provides replacement parts and makes any necessary repairs.
