2010 Craftsman LT2000 42 inch 19.5 hp Model 28902 Review

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.

My Review:

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.

Just picked one of these up at my local Sears for $989 plus a free 2 year warranty. Not bad at all I don’t think considering the 2011 comparable model with a 17.5 hp engine is going for $999 right now. Anyone else have any more thoughts on this tractor? I won’t be able to use it until the spring, still snow up here in New England.

I’m looking to buy my first tractor. My local sears store has one of these 2010 models. Were you ever able to review this tractor more thoroughly and do you have any comments on how this model will compare to the 2011 model? Thanks!
