Lawnmower- Handle Broke


The metal on my handlebar just ripped right through. It is a Craftsman model# 917.387620, serial# 030802M 035060. Getting a new part is probably more than the mower is worth. How do I find a part that fit fit on?

If it's a simple handle with no controls you may abe able to brace it with a piece of pipe, slighty larger diameter for short term, but if you're going to keep it there should be a few mower shops around with plenty of scrapped parts...

Look on Craig's List, maybe you'll get lucky. Try looking under Free Stuff also.

You don't say exactly what handle part is broken. Go to www.searspartsdirect.com and put in your model # to see the diagram and parts list. Replacement parts for these mowers aren't expensive. One of mine is a very similar model with a 6hp Briggs, still going strong after 12 years.
