Craftsman LT3000


The Craftsman LT3000 Lawn Tractor Lawn Mower is powered by a 20 HP gasoline engine. This engine is built by Briggs and Stratton. The engine is started by a 12-volt battery that provides the engine with 230 cold cranking amps. This 12 V battery is recharged by an alternator when the engine is running. The engine transfers power to the wheels through a gearbox that has 6 speeds for forward and 1 for reverse. This transmission gives the LT 3000 a top speed of 8. 5 km/h in forward gear, while in reverse its top speed is just 2. 4 km/h. The clutch that is used to change gear also acts as a brake.

The mower deck on the Craftsman LT3000 has a 42-inch cutting width which makes it suitable for lawns ranging in sizes up to 3 acres. Anything bigger than this and you’ll find it far less time consuming to buy a tractor mower with a wider cutting width. The mower deck height is adjusted using a spring-assisted hand lever. You have 2 options for dealing with grass clippings on the LT 3000. Many people leave grass clippings on their lawns after mowing. Unfortunately this looks very dirty so what many people do is purchase a rear bagger to catch the grass clippings which leaves their lawn looking much cleaner.

In addition to a rear bagger attachment to collect grass clippings, you can also use a snow blower as well as the front blade on the Craftsman LT3000. Other lawn tractors similar to this one are the Craftsman LT4000 and the Craftsman LT2000.
