  • Craftsman LT2000 Lawn Tractor - Boys and Their Toys

    Mar 10, 2005 by michiman1 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 17.5 HP Kohler engine with full pressure lubrication system, 42" deck leaves a nice cut
    Cons: Low back seat and small 1.25 gallon gas tank

    Summary: I really didn't have to have it but the new storm gray Craftsman LT2000 Lawn Tractor just became too much to resist late last cutting season. The 10% sale put me over the top, all that was needed was a good solid story to pass on to my wife to ... read more

  • Transmission safety problem - big concern

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: New motor is a 19.5HP Briggs Gold, looks OK so far.
    Cons: The fit and finish is not great, transmission issues create a safety concern.

    Summary: I tried to research this model, but could not find out too many details beforehand. I have discovered since, that the transmission and motor for the model I have is new for this year. My transmission speed control is very poor. The trans ... read more

  • Craftsman's LT-2000 Tractor - A lawn tractor for the rest of us

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This tractor lives up Craftsman's legacy of reliability, value and performance. One great tractor.
    Cons: An hour meter is the only improvement suggestion on an otherwise great lawn tractor.

    Summary: If you have less than two or three acres of mostly level lawn area and don't like messing with things, basically turn key, cut the lawn, and maybe some other basic lawn care tasks, you'll be hard presses to find better lawn tractor than the Craftsman ... read more

    Pros: Solid built tractor, good engine, maneuvers easily, starts easily, good manual.
    Cons: Deck hard to adjust, setup by dealer incomplete

    Summary: I purchased 2006 LT2000 Model 27678 at franchised Sears store in April, 2006. It was supposed to be serviced and ready for mowing. It was overfilled with oil, tires not reduced in pressure, and cut grass unevenly. I attempted to adjust deck, but front ... read more

    Cons: Bad transaxle, muffler too loud,

    Summary: I have a 2005 Craftsman tractor LT2000 w/18.5 Briggs and Straton engine, automatic transmission. I bought it because of the heavy gauge deck. After 3 years and not a lot of use the transaxle is out, the muffler is very loud and engine has given ... read more

    Pros: 20.0HP Engine, Easy Starting, Pretty durable so far, very reliable.
    Cons: Engine is a 1 cylinder, small gastank, too slow(speed), poor design of engagement spring. 

    Summary: I've owned it for three years and counting, hasn't required anything other than a engagement/disengagement spring (really poor design by the way) and general maintenance.It has a 20.0 HP B&S engine, and a 42" cut, and it does quite well. I'd ... read more

    Pros: We like everything about it.
    Cons: Nothing bad to report yet.

    Summary: Bought my LT2000 in October 2007 on fall closeout for $1,149.  It has the B&S 20 hp engine.  I really wanted the hydrostatic transmission for ease of use for my wife and kids.  We love it.  It starts on the 1st try, turns pretty ... read more

    Pros: Powerful engine, great finished cut, easy control.
    Cons: Small gastank, seat indention captures water, deck hard to clean. too many safety features.

    Summary: I just bought the 08 model of the 2000. With three and a half acres of knee-high grass to cut on rather rough ground, I was a little concerned that what I needed was a bush-hog, not a little "lawn tractor". But I needn't have worried. I set my deck to 4 ... read more

    Pros: Good easy handling and even cut.
    Cons: Engine reliability and maintenance costs have driven me away from Kohler (and Craftsman).

    Summary: After being so well recommended, especially regarding the quality of the Kohler engines, I was most happy to have this mower. The unit gave me good initital performance (8 weeks) but has gone downhill ever since and has not made it through a cutting ... read more

    Pros: Great motor. Easy maintenance easy access to oil filter, air filter and dipstick.
    Cons: Cheap factory blades. Seat vinyl ripped within two months. Hydrostat transmission slips when in neutral.

    Summary: This mover has a 17hp Kohler engine that runs like a champ. It has a hydrostat transmission. The transmission slips a little and when in neutral still goes forward. I had trouble getting the mower deck balanced to get an even mow. I tried to ... read more
