The Craftsman LT4000 garden tractor lawn mower is one of the older tractor mowers from Craftsman/Sears. The engine that powers the LT 4000 is a Kohler CV14S. This is a gasoline powered engine. This engine uses a splash lubrication system to keep everything moving without any hiccups or wearing too much. The max power output of this Kohler engine is just 14 hp which is a lot lower than any of the engines that currently come with Craftsman tractor lawnmowers. The fuel tank that feeds the engine with gasoline can hold a maximum of 13.2 liters (3.5 US gallons). The engine is keystarted using a 12 volt battery. The battery is then recharged using a 15 amp alternator when the engine is running.
Power from the engine on the Craftsman LT4000 is transferred to the wheels through a gearshift transmission that gives it 6 speeds traveling forwards and 1 for reversing. Going forward, the LT 4000 has a top speed of 8 kph (5 mph) while in reverse it has a top speed of 2.4 kph (1.5 mph). This garden tractor lawnmower is compatible with a huge range of attachments from snow blowers to front blades as well as an aerator, seed spreader, dethatcher, sprayer and of course a bagger also.
The mower deck that comes with the Craftsman LT4000 garden tractor lawnmower has a cutting width of 42 inches. The total width of the mowing deck is actually higher than this due to the plastic discharge flap. The mower deck is raised and lowered using a spring assisted hand lever. The blades in the deck are belt driven and engaged manually.
