Sears item# 07128907000 Mfr. model# 28907

For $100 dollars more than the Model 28903 you get a completely redesigned lawn mower for 2009.  The model features 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 that will do the job for you.


6 speed gear drive 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.

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)


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


No 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.

After you use your new mower for a while,  come back and tell us how well you like your Craftsman LT 2000 6 speed!

I bought this new in 2009. With the 4th season coming up, I may have used it to the equivalence of one year. The first season, the valves were loose to the point that the top was almost 1/4″ off! No where in the user manual does it say to have them adjusted at a certain point. A week or two after setting the valves, the lower push rod (VERY cheap aluminum) broke and I replaced it with steel. Beginning the 2nd season, I couldn’t get the tires to hold air and had to replace all 4. Also, the brake… Read more »
