When we aquired a new property a couple weeks ago, it came with more land than several of our other properties. This meant I was in the market for a new lawnmower/tractor. I automatically knew that I wanted Craftsman, I have several other products made by them, and generally speaking they are my go to lawn product company. I looked at several different models before deciding on the Craftsman 24HP 54" Complete Starts, Turn Tight Tractor. I wanted something with a decent amount of horse power, that wasn't too much for me to handle by myself. I got that and so much more with this purchase. It's a powerful tractor, but something I feel comfortable handling by myself. One of my favorite things about riding/using this tractor- is that even thought its built to get the job done and be a effective piece of machine, it is also very comfortable. Which makes me a little more eager to cut the grass and do the yardwork. The seat is padded, and the handles/steering almost conforms to your hands when using. Another important factor to me, is the ability to clean it after using it. I generally use it for 2-3 hours at a time, and I'm someone who has to clean yard gear after using it. I can't stand putting something away dirty. This is really easy to clean-and clean it safely. Which can sometimes be trouble. I am very glad that I purchased this Craftsman tractor, and I would for sure reccommend it for someone who is looking to buy a tractor for large lawns or landscaping.
