This mower has been updated: Go here to read my review: Craftsman 42 in 19.5 hp LT 2000 Model 28884 Lawn Tractor Review
The LT Yard Tractor is all new this year. For about $100 more than the 28901 you get a B&S Gold series motor. The mower has no history and I will not have a chance to test it until April 15. So … this review will only cover a visual inspection and my first impressions of the machine.

This mower is considerably different than the 2009 Model 28902 from last year. While it has the same gray paint scheme, the frame, deck, transmission, tires, controls and overall appearance are different.
The deck is very similar to the deck on the Yard Man Model 28906.
The frame is an “U” design. It appears to be strong and stiff for the price range of the mower. I don’t expect you to have any problems with this design.
That’s it for now. When I get a chance to drive it and as it gets some history I will update this review.
