Craftsman LT 2000 19.5 HP/42″ Lawn Tractor Review

Sears item# 07128908000 Mfr. model# 28908

For $200 dollars more than the Model 28903 you get a completely redesigned lawn mower for 2009.  The model features a new AUTOMATIC transmission, the new Craftsman style, step through operator’s platform, pressurized lube engine, and a 42 inch deck redesigned around the  46 inch Model 28724 Consumer Reports 2008 Best Buy.

If you want an inexpensive mower that will mow smaller lawns well (under 2 acres) and last you many years this is the cheapest mower in the Craftsman lineup with an automatic transmission that will do the job for you.

Specs:

Infinitely variable automatic transmission

19.5 Briggs & Stratton Gold Series Full Pressure Engine with oil filter

42 inch 2 blade mower deck. 13 gauge steel.

11 gauge steel frame with steel front axle.

Mid-back seat

2 year warranty (manufacture defects only), optional 3 yr Protection Agreement (covers all of the lawn tractor including wear and tear, labor, and attachments bought with the mower)

Pros:

This is also a lawn tractor and is capable of pulling all the non-ground engaging attachments Sears offers.

Cons:

Two gauge wheels.  If your lawn is hilly and rough gauge wheels helps to keep the deck from gouging and tearing up your lawn.

There are not a lot of  negatives with this mower as long as you understand that it is a good quality inexpensive mower designed to mow lawns well.  I like this lawn mower for what it is designed for.  It is capable of pulling a small garden cart, spreading fertilizer and other LIGHT yard work but I would not recommend this lawn tractor for anything else.  It is too small to effectively plow snow and to lightweight and under powered to push a 42 inch snow thrower adequately.
