Craftsman YT3000 21HP Lawn Tractor
(San Antonio, TX)
Earlier this year I decided I needed to get a new lawn mower. For years I have marched behind a push-mower in the hot sun, cutting my grass. I decided at that point to treat myself to something new.
I purchased the Craftsman YT3000 21HP Lawn Tractor riding mower. Its a dark red color, doesn't show a lot of dirt even though we clean it regularly.
The great thing about it is that it has a platinum engine with and oil filter, so its supposed to last forever now. The engine automatically cools itself and the performance on it is great. I have even used the bright headlights at dusk when i was driving around near a ditch in the back of the property.
It came with a 2 year full warranty, but I decided to purchase the extended warranty. Probably not necessary, but I wanted to be safe. The salesperson at Sears was insistent on it.
The mower drives very smooth and it goes pretty fast with 6 speeds. It handles very well when I whip around these bushes in the front and easily chops up everything I drive over. Even things I don't mean to chop up like the hose!
One of my favorite features is the cup holder where I can put my fave cold beverage. I even cut our neighbors yard when they are out of town at their mother in laws for 2 weeks. They were surprised at how great their yard looked when they returned.
I felt the price was really reasonable we got interest free payments on it and its almost paid off now. Pros
