Craftsman GT6000

The Craftsman GT6000 garden tractor lawn mower is a large and very powerful machine. The machine is incredibly similar to the likes of the Craftsman GT5000 lawn tractor. This is because they both have the same power output of 26 hp as well as the same sized mower deck of 54 inches. The GT 6000 uses a very large gasoline powered engine. This is a Kohler Pro Courage model that has a displacement of 0.725 liters. It’s prevented from overheating using an air cooling system. This twin cylinder model uses a fully pressurized lubrication system to keep it oiled throughout operation. As already mentioned, it’s total power output comes to 26 hp. The fuel tank on the mower can hold up to 15.1 liters (4 US gallons) of gas.

This power is then transferred to the wheels on the Craftsman GT6000. This is done with a hydrostatic transmission that gives the GT 6000 infinite speeds going forwards and in reverse also. It’s speed is controlled using a foot pedal and it’s top speed is 12.1 kph (7.5 mph). The rear wheels that the engine drives measure 23×10.5-8 (23 inch diameter, 10.5 inch width, 8 inch rim diameter), while the front wheels which are responsible for steering the lawn mower each measure 16×6.5-6 (16 inch diameter, 6.5 inch width, 6 inch rim diameter).

The mower deck on the Craftsman GT6000 has a cutting width of 54 inches, as previously mentioned. This deck is made from 12 gauge steel and inside there are 3 blades in total. In total, there are 12 different cutting heights for this mower deck so that you will always be able to get the height that you want. There are a number of features on this mower that add to it’s overall functionality. These include things like cruise control as well as an hourmeter so that you can accurately gauge when you next need to service it.

One Review of the “Craftsman GT6000”

  1. Buzzard says:

    does a fine job lawn mowing if the terrain is fairly flat and will do hilly terrain but smokes going down hill if the oil level is on the full mark…as far as snow plowing…it’s ok…not enough weight even with the extra weight bar of 150 lbs…can get stuck fairly easy as the rear wheels do not lock up and if one spins your done…i live in northern maine and we get SNOW…i have had to get my 4 wheel drive pickup to pull it out several times…if i had known all this i would have bought a compact tractor…sure it would have cost me about $15000 more but i would have 4 wheel drive and a loader as well…when all is said and done it is a nice lawn tractor and small garden tractor but not for any thing mid level and above…

    Year of Manufacture: 0
    Pros: it’s black…easy to operate does a fairly good job mowing…it is a Husqvarna when all is said and done…has enough power for small jobs at 26hp.
    Cons: it SMOKES…from day one and hasn’t gotten any better in three years of operation… you have to keep it about 1 to 1/2 quart low on oil, if the downward incline is not to it’s liking then she will kill mosquito’s real nice, going uphill no problem… the cloud of smoke is terrible even at the lower oil level. on the flat is is fine…the turf tires on the rear are a joke and need to be replaced with bar tread tires if your yard has substantial incline or the rear tires break loose…steering is atrocious in the snow and at higher speeds it wants to wander as it is a tight turn model…it too light for heavy work, mostly made to mow the yard…
    Attachments: snow-blower with weight bar and garden cart
    Modifications: put bar tread tires on the rear
