Perfect Size For Hills
Model year: 2005Date Purchased: 2019-05-05Number of Hours: 420
"I have the manual 6 speed. I am often setting the speed and leaning myself way over the fender to keep the mower from slipping/flipping on a hill. I know it is not something that should be done, but it is something that I have done with this mower and the previous same mower.
I have thought about buying a larger tractor but feel that the extra seat height and the ability to lean over would not be as effective as this size garden tractor. This year I am spending the money to have a replacement engine as I can not find a similar sized manual 6-speed riding mower new."

"To carry a good name like Craftsman, it should be a good mower, but it is terrible.
Finding parts for it is a nightmare. The motor and transmission are great, but everything else is worse than a Murray lawn mower."

"Great tractor except for the engine. It is a Kohler Command Pro 25hp v-twin. It has the same smoking problem and carb issues that I've read about for these tractors built around 2004. I will probably end up replacing the motor in a few years. The rest of the tractor seems pretty solid. Parts availability is pretty good."

22 HP 50" Mower Graden Tractor
by Mel Hovanec
Model year: 2004Date Purchased: 2004-07-06Number of Hours: 3705
"Bought this tractor because of the mower size and the capability to use ground attachments (plow, disk, front blade, snowthrower, tiller, etc).
Other than probelms with transmission, it has performed any and all I have thrown at it. The engine (22hp) is more than enough for mowing and even plowing my garden (25' x 45')."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Great powerful engine.Cons: Transmission weak.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA MII also considered buying: John Deere 425 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Craftsman GT 5000 Is Strong!!!
by Pedro Dones
Model year: 2004Date Purchased: 2004-08-01Number of Hours: 0
"I have one with 54' cutting deck and Kohler pro 25hp. It is speedy when you need to, so you save time. Last good experience was a piece of metal that goes behind the center blade under the cutting deck compartment fell off and, to my surprise, the cutting performance increased dramatically!
You see, that piece is important to cut garden grass neatly manicured, but when you have to deal with over-your-knees tall grass that is dense and with big roots, my GT 5OOO without that piece totally crushed that high grass at speed 3! I discovered that without this piece, the rate of discharge out of the cutting deck is completely untapped and it just cut like a big tractor with a 'taladora' on the back..so if you have one...KEEP IT! If not, just get it!"
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: If you level your yard, you can take advantage of cutting a speed 6; meaning you can get the job done 600% faster!Cons: Is not 4 wheel drive but driving with common sense will overcome that.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA OTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

Review of Craftman 26 HP Garden Tractor
by Jonathan Streufert
Model year: 2006Date Purchased: 2007-04-30Number of Hours: 120
"Considered paying more to buy a heavier duty tractor before buying this model, but I have generally had good experiences with Sears/Craftman equipment and tools. I use this 26 HP, 54 inch mowing deck to mow my 2 acres of grass almost every week from May through October. It has performed pretty well in the five years I have had it, and have no regrets buying this tractor from my small acreage needs."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Reliable, starts up, and no problems to date, knock on wood.Cons: None to speak of.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA VAI also considered buying: Wheel Horse GT-1600, John Deere D170 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Craftsman GT: 5000 Good in Theory
Model year: 2010Date Purchased: 2010-02-01Number of Hours: 56
"I bought this tractor as it seemed that for $2500 it would cut the lawn well and maybe plow some snow. I also needed it to pull an aerator as well. I have had issues with the starter not engaging the flywheel to start the engine. I smelled smoke at 30 hours and found that the drive pulley popped off. I bought the Berco electric lift 48" plow from Sears and it did not work right out of the box. Major hassle to have them come out just to tell me the Relay is bad. I bypassed it with another winch control and now its fixed. I attempted to level my gravel driveway with the plow in 1st gear only to have the drive belt slip!
The mower deck, in the highest position, only gives 3" MAX between the ground and the bottom edge of the blade! I WOULD NOT BUY IT AGAIN!"
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Really? I don't have to walk to mow the lawn.Cons: Read the above posts.Type of User:Location: USA NJI also considered buying: John Deere LA165, Snapper LT2250 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
