Craftsman Shave Plate part # 790-00118-0721

I have a Craftsman snowblower model 247.887910 The Shave Plate part number is 790-00118-0721. I've found many different Shave Plate part numbers beginning with 790-00118. but haven't found one with the last four digits of 0721. Would anyone know if any other part number beginning with 790-00118 will work? Also what do last 4 digits of the part number represent?

Thanks for any help !

This would probably work. It is for a 28" and at worse probable would be drilling new holes.

You can also make your own, which I've done several times. Here's one I got some flat steel but the original had a lip on the back side. I picked up sound round stock that fit the dimensions of the lip and welded it onto the back of the scraper. Works for me.

My brother is getting me a piece of 1/4" x 3" I may weld or bolt on the edge. I might grind the leading edge to sharpen it.

Won't that wind up costing you far more than the $22.75 that a new one would cost ?

I have a welder and cutoff saw, plus the scraper was discontinued for that 32" I put the picture out on. I buy cutoffs at my local steel distributor, I think that one I showed cost me about $3 plus my time to make it and a little welding wire. I've never sharpened a scraper bar I've made, the round edge on the steel I buy works just fine in snow for me including leftovers from the snowplows. Even if it's ice on the walks, a sharpened scraper doesn't chisel it off, or at least it hasn't for me.


Doing it yourself is also satisfying too.

Let's all hope guttersnipes199 is similarly outfitted like you; but his 28" Shave Plate is NOT DISCONTINUED and is still available.

Simply do a Google search using the part number. There are lots of options out there at a much lower cost than getting the part from Sears [~$56].
