Craftsman ys4500

I have just purchased a 2006 Craftsman YS4500 54 inch deck with a 26 hp kohler. The model # 917.287260. Questions are where can I get a manual owners or repair for this model #? And second why when I enter this model number tractor comes up at 42 inch deck and 24 hp kohler.

Not sure how the model would indicate a 42" cut with a 24hp motor when you know you have a 54" cut with a 26hp motor.

A little google search and I did find a manual for a YS4500 with a 54in deck and 26hp engine. It is attached.

The only things I can think of that happened was the sticker was changed, doesn't seem logical. Or the deck and engine were upgraded and the base will still share the same components except for the deck and engine. Definitely a head scratcher.

Btw, congratulations on your purchase. I'm sure it will give you years of good service!

Thank you so much. Finally have a mower that will out perform my MTD 50 inch with 22 hp Onan. As to the model number mix up I will try to find the reason.

The YS4500 I have was produced by HOP, it had a 20hp Intek (replaced) and 42 inch deck. https://www.mytractorforum.com/14-cr...bad-intek.html
