    I just bought a plow for my lawn mower, a craftsman 3000 series......

    i assembled it and i realized that the blade does not lock in the raised position.... am i to believe that you must hold it up while driving the tractor?

    this doesnt seem right as the lift arm is not very solid and seems quite wobbly....

    any one own one of these that can help me? i have read the directions 5000 times to no avail.

    i have a craftsman theres only one way to put it together i put it together myself the first time then i had to reassemble it to make it lock up the reason was there was a hole to put the alunimum(spelling) bar that attaches to the angling bar and the same bar u lift it with u really need to look at the instructions but it may be different becase mines a 2004 1000series hope i helped u man

    When I was a kid, and I got my first one it locked in. And people i've seen now, theirs locks in. I'd question the store. If they say to bad. I'd say here's the tractor back. Then I'd go buy something of quality. I'm not dising craftsman, but they are crap. Go and investigate into things that will work best for your company, do more things for your company , and last your company a lot longer. There are plenty of afordable products out there. You just need to look around.
