The Craftsman LT2000 garden tractor lawn mower is from the same series of mowers as both the Craftsman LT4000 and the Craftsman LT3000. The mower deck that is attached to the LT 2000 has a cutting width of 42 inches. This deck is has 2 blades and is made from 13 gauge steel.

On the edge of the mower deck you will notice anti scalping wheels (these are the small black wheels). These guide the deck over your lawn to make sure the blades don’t cut into the ground.
The motor that powers the mowing deck on the Craftsman LT2000 garden tractor is a Briggs and Stratton Gold model that provides 20 hp. This OHV engine has a full pressure lubrication system.
