The Craftsman LTS1500 garden tractor lawn mower is a mid sized model. The LTS 1500 is also sometime commonly known as the Craftsman 28903. The mower deck on this garden tractor has a cutting width that comes in at 42 inches. These blades are housed inside a 13 gauge steel deck. The deck on the LTS 1500 can operate at 6 different cutting heights from a minimum cutting height of 1.5 inches above the ground up to a max of 4 inches above the ground. The mowing deck is raised and lowered using a spring assisted lever. Like on practically all Craftsman models, there are 3 different modes for dealing with the grass clippings. The easiest is to discharge them back onto the lawn out the side of the mower deck. However you can optionally mulch them or purchase a bagger and collect them at the rear.

The engine that powers the mower deck and wheels on the Craftsman LTS1500 is not particularly big, with a displacement of just o.502 liters. This single cylinder engine is air cooled and has over head valves. It’s total power output comes to 17.5 hp. The engine is kept lubricated using a splash lubrication system. The air intake into the engine is purified through a paper type air filter so that no dust or other particulate matter enters the combustion chambers.

Power from the engine is transferred to the wheels of the Craftsman LTS1500 through a Fender gearshift gearbox. This gives the LTS 1500 6 speeds traveling forwards and just 1 for reversing. The seat on this lawn mower is very adjustable, so you will practically always be able to find a comfortable operating position, not matter what your height. The minimum turning radius for the mower is 18 inches when the disc brakes are being used. The weight of the lawnmower comes to 224.5 kg (495 lbs). Similar models include the Craftsman LT1000.
