The Craftsman LT1000 garden tractor lawn mower is often known by it’s serial number, the Craftsman 27639. Both refer to the same tractor mower. The engine powering the LT 1000 is an Intek model from Briggs and Stratton. This is a two stroke, 1 cylinder model that pumps out 18 hp. The cylinder in this Briggs and Stratton engine has a cast iron cylinder sleeve for an extra long operating life. The engine stay oiled thanks to a fully pressurized lubrication system.
This engine on the Craftsman LT1000 powers the mower deck and the wheels. The mowing deck has a cutting width of 42 inches (it’s total width is a good bit higher than this due to the plastic discharge flap on the side). Inside the deck are 2 blades working together to give a nice smooth, even cut to your lawn. The deck has an operating range of 2.5 inches, from a low of 1.5 inches above the ground to a high of 4 inches above the ground. For dealing with the cut grass clippings, you have 3 choices. Many people just leave the grass clippings to fly out the side of the deck and lay on the grass. Unfortunately this can prove to be rather unsightly, so what some people do is purchase a bagger to collect them or use a mulching kit to turn them into a fast rotting mulch.
Power to the wheels on the Craftsman LT1000 is controlled by a gear shift transmission. This gives the operator 6 different speeds going forwards, while in reverse they just have one speed. The fuel tank that supplies the engine with gasoline can hold up to 4.7 liters (1.25 US gallons).
