America's Hardest Working Tractor! This 52 inch Craftsman CTX9500 garden tractor isn't your ordinary tractor. This is truly a premium piece of machinery with a 10 gauge steel frame and full steel hood. The tractor is powered by a heavy-duty Briggs & Stratton 26hp V-Twin engine with electronic fuel management that delivers consistent automotive-style starting and longer life for the most demanding jobs. Greater torque and lower vibration lets you get through your yard work in no time, even letting you enjoy some music. The garden tractor is engineered in legendary Craftsman fashion for superior comfort, convenience and performance. The 12 gauge steel deck is easy to adjust with an electronic deck lift allowing you to have an infinite height of cut positions with an effortless push of a button. Mowing around tree lines, obstacles and flower beds is easier than ever with an 18 inch turning radius that makes for nimble maneuvering. And when the cutting season is done, deck removal is a breeze with the quick-release deck removal system. Low effort steering with a 13 inch soft-grip steering wheel gives you superior driving comfort, while the cruise control feature and large Super Turf treaded tires minimize speed fluctuations and provide great traction. And the premium features don't stop there. An automatic traction control and differential lock makes this tractor perfect for all types of challenging terrains. The electronic dashboard has a wide range of features such as the fuel indicator, initial oil change and maintenance intervals, and much more to keep you on top of things. The Craftsman CTX9500 Tractor gets your yard looking lush and lovely year after year. Once you experience the convenience and results of this durable lawn machine, you’ll never settle for anything less.
