8 Reviews of the Craftsman YT4500

This host has given problems from day one. I have had to operate the cut in the highest cut because the cover would not go up and down. It stuck in all kinds of places in my field and I have to tow it. I also thought that this would be the last cutter that I would have to buy, but my first craftman with much less horses of power worked better than this. I will not buy another Craftsman corteped

I bought the corteped 3 years ago. I just operated 3 hours every Saturday for 3 months or 3 and a half months.

The first 2 months worked well. Then I had a strange vibration from the cutting platform. One of the platform supports had broken.

I welded it again and worked for another month. I prepared it for winter at the end of the season.

The following season it worked for a month before the main board of the crankcase failed. I changed it and the new board lasted 10 hours of operation. I changed it again and worked another 10 hours before the address gear failed. Then the fuel pump failed.

I changed it and worked for 1 day. Then the carburetor failed. I rebuilt it and worked for the rest of the season.

The next (and last) year, the connecting rods fell, so the OHV did not work. Cool. I replaced the bent rods and worked for 1 hour before the crankcase board failed again. When hot oil flew through all my shoes, the piston rods broke.

I will not spend a millisecond more to rebuild this disgusting thing. I prefer to rent a corteped once or twice a month than to work this thing.

I prepared it for winter every year, I changed the oil religiously, I kept it covered, I did all the required maintenance. My last crafts lasted 18 years, it did not last or 3. What a garbage. Never more.

It is really not bad. I have not lost my dream for it.

It is not worth money and I am not worth anything after this experience if I will buy another craftman
