Re: 1999?? Craftsman Garden Tractor Green in color What Model???
It looks identical to my '99 GT, 917.273221. There was no model designation. The owners manual title reads: 24.0HP Electric start 50" mower automatic Garden Tractor. They had some variations as far as deck size and trans, but they all looked the same.
It is 'Heavy Duty' as far as Craftsmans go, has the same frame as the GT 5000 and DGT6000 I had, and it's heavier(weight wise) than my SS16.
I use it for moving dirt and hauling, never have bogged the engine or stalled the trans, just lose traction, even with filled HDAPs.
edit: After re-reading your sig, it is obviously light-duty to you.
Just my opinion, yours will differ.
