Series 2000 Garden Tractors
under the drive system section is says heavy duty cast iron transaxle. however when you look under attachments it doesnt appear to have ground engaging capabilities, the true definition of garden tractor. i think it should be illegal to advertise a tractor as a garden tractor if it cannot garden. kinda stupid if you ask me. why was it back in the glory days that nearly every machine sold, unless it was a very small lawn tractor had ground engaging capability and now nearly nothing does. even your little original and john deere 110/112 round fenders powered by little 7 and 8 hp engine had ground engaging capability. now 20 hp lawn tractors cannot do what a small 7 hp garden tractor from the 60's can still do 50 years after its introduction. MTD, if you are listening unless it can handle a tiller or brinly sleeve attachments its lawn or yard tractor.
i love my real GT's and the true strength they have. they have never let me down, weather im mowing 2 acres a week or removing a really bad snowfall. they are true workhorses.
not only do i have my 124 that is undergoing restoration, but i also own a wonderful cub cadet 147 hydro that i love to mow with. cub cadet 147 needs a restoration as well, but it run excellent.

i still dont think the 3000 series compares favorably to our IH built machines.
You are quite correct on that.
