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.
