Sears Canada Craftsman Models Starting with C459

Sears Canada Craftsman Models Starting with C459

April 2020 Update - In the three years this blog post has been active, we've helped tons of people track down their owner's manuals and parts breakdowns for their C459 units.  We are slowly starting to add these resources to our website as a free download.  It's a slow process - many of these were on microfice and now loaded into big pdf files.  If you need assistance with C459 please don't hesitate to contact us.  I've added a few links to manuals that have been uploaded, but we literally have access to 1000s of them.

We always provide these resources free. Of course, we hope you will come back to our site and purchase parts from us.  But we've made it our mission to make these invaluable resources as accessible as possible.  Stay well out there, Char

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.

I’ve just uploaded a parts breakdown for a 1985 Craftsman mower C459-60408 in response to Al’s request. You can find this model by going to the main page and searching the model number. Best, Char

Hi Al – I don’t have a copy of this manual and I was unable to cross-reference the number to an MTD number. However, as you provided the serial number I have sent in a request to MTD Tech Services, so hopefully will hear something back from them. Best, Char

Parts are on order.

Hi. Curbside find – someone tossing away a complete C459-36310 unit (looks like it’s a MTD by your chart). Only issue – missing the entire pull-start mechanism on the top of the engine. Engine turns fine and oil in the sump looks very clean. 1)Would you think the pull-start assemblies are carried over from model yr to model yr and 2) Do you think its still possible to get that part from MTD? Thank you.

I have a C459-52228. I’m not sure of the age but would you have any info on it?
