Craftsman Lawnmowers

    Since we have been discussing riding lawn mowers or tractors for sometime, I think I'll stick to the subject matter here when discussing Craftsman yard products, specifically the LT2000 Lawn Tractor. And, since I've been referring to my neighbors' use of all these already-said models, let me not lack here either in my description.

    My best friend's grandpa just spent about $1400.00 on this new riding lawnmower and seems to like it well enough. It was a combination of price and engine model that allured him, not to mention Sears' history of quite decent customer service relations concerning Craftsman products.

    The Craftsman LT2000 Lawn Tractor is a set a price that will assuredly sell this summer. When compared to competitor's prices, this one pretty much takes the cake. This model has an array of choices as well. As far as I've known, Craftsman mowers have always used Briggs and Stratton Engines. This one comes with an 18.5-horsepower up to a 23-horsepower model that will really purr through the yard. However, this years line-up also features the option of a 19-horsepower Kohler Courage Pro engine, a similar engine design used in the newer Cub Cadets.

    Earlier, we saw that the Cub Cadets were worth their price due to their durable design. Cub Cadets, no matter how much we like the things, are a bit pricy. This Craftsman model might just compete with the Cadet's armor. The LT2000 comes with an 11-guage steel frame, cast iron front axle, and allows for front-end lubrication. This model also comes with a durable 42-inch mowing deck, about four-inches bigger than some competitor's models, with balance wheels to keep the cut nice and even.

    For a few additional dollars, you can purchase the bagging unit, which is quite easy to install. The mower comes with one set of blades that do regular mowing and cover the panel for mulching all in one-your preference!

    Some complaints voiced of the newer models are its use of smaller wheels than in years past. Regular size (about 10-inch) turf tires were once standard, but have been minimized to dinky 8-inch tires that do not climb through the yard as well as their predecessor models. Others voiced concerns over the 1 - to 2-gallon tank that doesn't seem to go a long while if you have a bigger yard, over about 1- to 2-acres. And, the seats of past models were said to be higher and more comfortable.

    Again, for extended service and peace of mind, you're going to have to pay an additional $300.00 bucks. But, that covers essentially everything, from pick-up to replacement parts. Overall, Craftsman has built a fine, durable and worthwhile machine for those balancing quality, a great brand with an excellent sticker price
