My First Tractor - Craftsman DLT 3000 Lawn Tractor Model No. 917.273471
Just in time for our first snow today, I picked up my very first tractor today. It's about 5 years old - a Sears Craftsman DLT 3000 lawn tractor (Model No. 917.273471) with a 20HP Kohler twin V 20HP engine and a 42" cutting deck. It came with a bumper, tarp cover, an aerator and a cart. (No snow plow or snow blower, of course.) Cosmetically it looks perfect and the guy who owned it before me, appears to have taken great care of it mechanically, as well. I paid $560 and the fellow was nice enough to bring it up to my place from Parker. (Thanks craigslist!)
This should minimally take care of my grounds maintenance needs for now. I am no mechanic, so I hope it holds up well and will only require minimal routine maintenance.
