  • Sears Craftsman LT1000 Lawn Tractor - Mow, Larry And Curley

    Jun 24, 2013 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 18 HP Briggs-&-Stratton engine. 42-inch cut. Trailer hitch. Simple and cheap to maintain.
    Cons: Numerous design flaws. Inadequate rear tire tread. A safety-switch nightmare. Minimal resale value.

    Summary: While considering the purchase of my hilltop abode, my agent suggested we include "furniture and furnishings" in our offer; since the house had been staged with new furniture (and a quality wood stove) that had no sentimental value to the seller. With ... read more

    Pros: Smooth, tight turning. Nice transmission.
    Cons: Horrible motor. Poorly designed deck adjustment pins. Sears refuses to stand behind product. Awful.

    Summary: I bought the Craftsman LT1000 based on price, deck size, and the use of a Briggs and Stratton engine. I mow about and acre and a half so the 18hp - 42 inch deck was an improvement over the 12hp - 38 inch deck I had been using for more than ten years. ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive. Engine very reliable. Easy to start.
    Cons: Breaks easily. Plow attachment useless. Poor resale.

    Summary: I paid $1000 for it new, plus $200 for the optional snow plow attachment. I have 1.5 acres of land on an uneven mild slope, and a lot of trees to mow around. I also have a septic mound in the back to mow over. I had assumed that the cheapest lawn ... read more

    Pros: Wow, what a mower. After an exhaustive search, I picked the Craftsman and love it.
    Cons: 1.25 Gallon Gas Tank

    Summary: I searched around for about 3 weeks and my search finally ended with a Craftsman mower. I was scared to by a Sears product, but am very pleased with my purchase. I looked at Scott's, Toro, Troy Built, YardMaster, and a few others. After comparing ... read more

    Pros: Electric PTO, Kohler 18 HP, Hydraulic OHV's, Cast iron front end, low vibration.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: I'm very pleased with this tractor. It wasn't listed in any catalog at the Sears stores. The salesman brought it to my attention based on the automatic transmission version #27242 in the catalog. I like the color and it is the only model ... read more

    Pros: All ways start on first try. Great turning radius
    Cons: Blades bend if even minor ant hill hit. Uneven cuts.

    Summary: As opposed to the other comments, I find the TL1000 less than satisfactory. No matter how I adjust the deck, per the manual, I get uneven cuts. Tire pressure check and all still had the mower cutting uneven swaths. Hit an ant hill and the blade bends ... read more

    Pros: Sears 2 year warranty

    Summary: 14 months since inception and the front wheel fell off, the starter went bad, three batteries replacements, and the engine blew a rod. I mow 1 acre of land and this wasn't big enough to handle the work load. Do NOT buy any tractor with the 1 cylinder ... read more
