Thinking about adding a DSG6500 to my 'shopping' list of potential tractors.

Was a 54” deck the only deck available on the 2009 GT5000?

From reading/research here, it looks like the 2006 DGS6500 was the first year for a Craftsman garden tractor with a pedal operated ‘ground engaging hydro’…correct? If not, which year and model # please.

Was the 48” deck available for all the years (2006 to 2008) of the DGS6500?

Thanks, Kevin

I read somewhere a while back that customers had a choice of a 48" or 54" deck. I bought a 2005 "parts only" DGT6500 earlier in the year that had a 54" deck. Looking at my 2010 Craftsman catalog, the GT5000s only come with 54" decks. They don't even offer the 48" deck anymore.

Oops...I forgot that I had read on this thread where the 07's and 08's had the 48" or 54" deck options...I should have just asked about the 2006 DGS6500.

I also have the 2010 catalog and that's why I'm wondering about the 2009 GT5000's. Since I haven't seen any mention of the DGS6500's for 2009 anywhere, I'm assuming the GT5000's started back in 2009.
