The Craftsman YS4500 garden tractor lawn mower is not quite as big as the likes of the Craftsman MTS5500 lawnmower, but it’s still a very powerful model when compared to a lot of other brands. The engine that powers the YS 4500 is a Briggs and Stratton Intek Plus that supplies the mower deck and wheels with a maximum power output of 21 hp. This engine is kept running smoothly thanks to a splash lubrication system. The engine is just a one cylinder model with a total volume of 0.502 liters. It uses a dual air filter to purify the air intake of dust and particulate matter. This engine is started using a 12 volt battery.
Power from the engine is transferred to the wheels using a hydrostatic transmission which makes the lawn tractor an automatic with infinite speeds traveling forwards as well as in reverse. The speed of the Craftsman YS4500 is controlled using a foot pedal accelerator and a pedal for the disk brakes. The Briggs and Stratton Intek Plus engine also powers the mower deck on the YS 4500. This mower deck has a cutting width of 46 inches. The deck itself is made from 12 gauge steel and 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. There are gauge wheels attached to this mower deck with work to prevent the deck from accidentally cutting into the ground during operation.
The wheels on the Craftsman YS4500 lawn mower have ‘turf saver’ threads which means that they’ll almost never leave a mark in the ground even if the lawn you are cutting is waterlogged.
