Craftsman YT 4000 Model 28925

Craftsman has simplified the model numbers this year and the YT4000 series only come with Briggs & Stratton 24 hp Platinum V twin engines.  The model 28925 features a 6 speed transmission, the new Craftsman style, step through operator’s platform, 24 hp V-twin engine, and a 42 inch deck redesigned around the 46 inch Model 28724 Consumer Reports 2008 Best Buy.

If you want a decent mower that will mow 1 to 2 acres lawns well and and handle a snow thrower well this is the cheapest mower in the Craftsman lineup that I would recommend for you.


Six speed transmission

24 hp V-twin Briggs & Stratton Platinum Series Full Pressure Engine with oil filter.  This mower is is incorrectly listed on the website as 22 hp.  It is actually a 24 hp.

42 inch precision cut with 4 gauge wheels.  Spring loaded deck lift system.  Washout port on deck.

Cast iron front axle.

High-back seat with automotive type slide seat system

2 year warranty (manufacture defects only), 5 year frame/front axle, optional 3 yr Protection Agreement (covers all of the lawn tractor including wear and tear, labor, and attachments bought with the mower)



I like the mid-size YT 4000 series.  I think they represent a good value and a machine that if taken care of properly will last you a long time.

These yard tractors are capable of handling all the non-ground engaging attachments Sears offers including a snow blade and snow thrower.


The YT 4000 is powerful enough if you want to attach a snow thrower, but it is not a garden tractor and is not designed to handle ground engaging attachments.   Most homeowners don’t use attachments like pull-behind tillers, plows and the YT4000 will be just the right size.  The GT 5000 garden tractors will handle a snow thrower better than this one, they are almost twice the cost.

There are very few negatives with this mower as long as you understand that it is a good quality mid-sized mower designed to mow lawns well.  I like this lawn mower for what it is designed for. It is capable of pulling a wide range of attachments.

After you use your new mower for a while, come back and tell us how well you like your Craftsman YT 4000 Six-speed!
