Sears Canada Craftsman Models Starting with C459

Posted by Char Smith on

If you've looked at my two blog posts on Sears Canada models starting with 944*, you know how much fun it can be to try to find parts breakdowns and Illustrated Parts Lists (IPLs) or manuals.  Not so with Craftsman models starting with C459!

Craftsman C459 Models Made by MTD

MTD is one of three major suppliers of Craftsman brand outdoor power products that are sold by Sears Canada. This includes Craftsman, Craftsman Professional and Craftsman Pro. 

MTD also took over warranty service in 2014 for the products it made for Craftsman, retroactive to June 17, 2012.  So what does that mean for you?  Well you lucky C459 owners, it means your IPLs are all available through MTD!

If you search your C459 model number on the internet, you probably won't find anything.  What you need is the guide I'm including here that cross references C459 numbers to MTD's number series!

Once you know the MTD number, head on over to MTD's website:

Enter 'MTD" in the dropdown box, key in your MTD model number and voila!  Manuals and IPLs magically appear!

MTD has been adding some of the Craftsman numbers to their search engine, but it's not yet complete. 

Mower or Engine Warranty?

Just a reminder that most equipment may be covered by more than one warranty. As you'll notice on the chart, there are some Briggs and Kohler engines on some of these units where the engine is covered by the engine manufacturer and not by MTD.  Don't despair! MTD can always help you figure it out and are very responsive to warranty questions - call 1-800-269-6215 Mon-Fri *am to 8 pm and Sat 9-5 EST.  .

As an authorized warranty service centre for MTD and all of the major lawn mower and garden equipment engine brands, we can also help you sort out any warranty issues.

  • Rick Sep 25, 2017 – Sorry for the late reply, it got caught in our spam filter! I don’t have any further info for your unit but you might try contacting MTD directly at 1-800-668-1238. They should be able to help you. Good luck! Char

  • trying to find parts list for my machine – engine model number C459 52537.

    Specifically i need the list that shows the electric joystick cover (under-plate) for the chute. I looked here and see the chart – #1 it has the wrong model number for the 420 cc unit.
