Hi there! I have a Craftsman Vacuum-shredder bagger model

Resolved Question:

Hi there!

I have a Craftsman Vacuum-shredder bagger model #113.796811. I bought it new and have kept it in great shape and when I tell you this thing is my favorite yard machine I'm not kidding! Big time saver! The last time I purchased parts (usual wear and tear stuff - bag, deflector , elbow) was back in 2000. The Sears website shows availability for bolts and washers but not the stuff described above. Can I still get this stuff?

Thanks,

Tim

Greetings,

My name isXXXXX and I am here to help the best I can. My goal is 100% satisfaction. Let's get started.

 

This is going to be a process which I am starting now.

 

I believe this was made by ROPER which was then bought by AYP (American Yard Products).

The link above is where you have already been.

 

I put it there for OUR use .

 

First we need exact part numbers, then we can start the search.

So I am looking them up now.

 

If you want to create a LIST of desired part numbers along with the descriptions, this will help.

I come up with these numbers to start

 

Bag PART NUMBER: 71-85681

Elbow PART NUMBER: 804550

Deflector PART NUMBER: 804551

 

Anything else?

 

This will be a LONG shot.

Hi James,

 

Need part numbers:\

 

806008 (Bag)

 

804551 (Deflector)

 

804550 (Elbow)

Expert:  James W replied 3 years ago.

I wonder why your bag number is XXXXX than the one I posted?

 

SO Far, the answer is STRIKE ONE

 

AYP has discontinued ALL three of the part numbers and the distributor is OUT...

 

So, now we are trying to find if any Dealers still have the parts in stock..

 

I did see that a bag had sold on ebay, but do not see one at the moment.. I am still looking.

 

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I'm pulling the part numbers from my original owners manual. Possibly they have changed over time?
Expert:  James W replied 3 years ago.

Price expensive.

 

But, only BAG I found was this

Still working on other parts too.
