I got the tranny installed last night and took the tractor for a spin, all seems good at this point. To this day I cannot see the benifit in making a tranny that is not servicable?? I would not think that it would add that much cost to allow access to the seals and add a drain plug and dipstick. You would think that for a small cost that this would give craftsman a edge over there competition?
But then what do I know? I really like the lt2000 for mowing, I live in the mountains and basicily mow meadows. The ground is ruff to say the least. With the flexable frame on the LT
I can get the job done faster and better than my "GT
can which beats me to death due to it's tank like construction" I have owned this tractor for nine years and it has never seen a maniqured lawn. I only wish that craftsman had as much confedence in us as some of us have in their little tractor. WOW!!! sorry for the bomb guys !!!
but I feel better
