Craftsman Lawn Tractors

Craftsman lawn tractor - 19.5HP 42in

Craftsman lawn tractors are manufactured and sold by Sears and benefit from the pros and cons of that status.

As a trusted brand sold through one of America’s biggest retailers, Craftsman lawn tractors sell well and are generally thought of by their buyers as good value machines.


Craftsman has one of the broadest ranges of lawn tractors, riding mowers and zero turn mowers of any of the major manufacturers. This is great in some ways, as it means that if you have decided upon a Craftsman you’ll almost certainly find a model that meets your needs. However, the differences between some models in the range can be quite small. This means that it is actually quite hard for the consumer to make a choice and quite hard for recommendations to be made by sites like this.

Sometimes a consumer can have too much choice. One wonders if Craftsman might do better to focus on making a more limited range of really great lawn tractors rather than a broad range of pretty good ones. No doubt the economies of scale mean that it is viable to offer the breadth of range that Craftsman offers and, presumably, profitable too.

Read on to see details of some of the bestsellers in the Craftsman range and the value for money that these lawn tractors can deliver.
