With a solid blend of speed, power and maneuverability, the Craftsman turn tight 42” riding mower takes down tall grasses in large yards while being able to mow around obstacles such as trees, planters, fences and swing sets.

Overall, others give this:
The minute it came off the truck, a buddy of mine and I had it up and running in no time. Super easy to figure out and handle. The best investment I've made to date. You will not be disappointed if you get one.
I just got this mower about 2 weeks ago, Tested it out and mowed the next day. Took less fuel than my previous mower and I even mowed the neighbors yard too. Roughly about 1.5 acres and took only about 3/4 of a tank of fuel. Mow's clean and straight, the tight turn almost is as good as the zero turn mowers. Looks impressive and is smooth running. The only complaint I have is that I have a ditch out front by the road and the old Stanley mower had no problem going in and out of it. The new Craftsman cant climb out of it so well. I will just adjust the angle at which I mow there. I am thinking of getting a bagger because of how thick the grass gets.
Everything you would expect in a quality Craftsman. Very smooth operation, turning radius is excellent, keeps cutting even in tall grass, and comfortable stable ride.
I have a 2013 craftsmen lt3000 42in and I love it. I replaced my 1980s craftsmen tractor for the new one. I have to lawn tractors I own and 2014 ********** tractor to. My wife drives the **********. I love the craftsmen much more then the **********!!!! If you get a riding lawn mower I recommend getting the one the is operated by pedals. I wish mine had that.

This tractor is a great machine. I really like the 6" turn radius it offers and the horsepower is pretty impressive for a tractor. Unlike the 46" 203830, this one has absolutely no vibrations. The controls are very user friendly and easy to use. I got my 2 acres knocked out in no time flat. I recommend this model to anyone who is looking for a new tractor.
I am impressed compared to my old mower. This unit powers through it all and teamed it up with the 2 bag bagger system. After emptying bags 40+ time i did not experience 1 single clog with wet grass that was a bit overgrown using reasonable cutting experience. My old unit would have never been able to do this without clogging every 30 seconds no matter how careful. I am extremely impressed and happy with purchase. The only thing i would prefer is a little less wobbly of a seat and a foot pedal control over the lever, but the lever is super easy to get adjusted to and does not bother me at all. (just like to keep that hand free for my beer!)
Just bought this spring and have used it very little, with that said it is a real nice machine, well built and nice features. I am a little confused on the cutting deck and the 1-6, 1 and 2 are un-usable after getting the cutting deck level. Not sure if there is another adjustment that will correct this.
