The Craftsman YT4000 garden tractor lawn mower is a mid sized model. It very comparable to both the Craftsman 28672 Professional 42 Inch 24 HP Lawn Mower and the Craftsman 13AL78ST299 21 hp 46 Inch tractor lawnmowers. The mower deck on the YT 4000 has a cutting with of 42 inches. This deck houses 2 blades which give a much more even and smoother cut than a single blade would when it’s working alone. The deck is made from 13 gauge steel and attached to it’s edges are 4 anti scalping wheels which work to keep it constantly elevated over the lawn while you are cutting it, which means you lawn won’t end up with any ugly scars. The deck is raised and lowered in 0.5 inch increments from a low of 1.5 inches to a high of 4 inches above the ground by a spring assisted lever.
The mower deck on the Craftsman YT4000 is powered by a Platinum engine that is made by Briggs & Stratton. This engine has overhead valves and a fully pressurized lubrication system. The air intake into the engine is first filtered through a paper element air filter so that it’s clean and free from impurities like dust and other small particles. The engine is kept cool thanks to an air cooling system. The twin cylinder engine has a total displacement of 0.724 liters.
The wheels that the Craftsman YT4000 sits on measure 18×9.5-8 (18 inch diameter, 9.5 inch width, 8 inch rim diameter for the rear wheels, while the front wheels are a good bit smaller, each measuring 15×6-6 (15 inch diameter, 6 inch width, 6 inch rim diameter). The minimum turning radius of the YT 4000 is 16 inches which makes it quite handy if you are cutting grass in awkward and difficult to reach areas. The lawn mower uses a set of disc brakes to control it’s speed.
