Everyone’s got a phobia of something. Spiders, bugs, tall places, whatever. For us, one of the things that always rubbed us in a weird way were tractors. They’re just so huge, you get the feeling that the driver can’t even see you as he tramples over you with those colossal wheels.

But Craftsman‘s tractors aren’t all that scary. When the company calls their product the Craftsman GT 5000 Lawn Tractor, what they’re really referring to is a classic riding lawnmower. Phew.

Making things even easier for the skittish, this mowing tractor is one of the manufacturer’s smaller models and is therefore suited for less intensive mowing tasks. Riding it feels a little like driving one of those kids’ plastic cars around, the ones that have a Flinstones-esque engine mechanism. But don’t go thinking that the GT 5000 is a toy: like any lawnmower, using it can be dangerous without a good understanding of how the device operates.

Despite its diminutive size, Craftsman’s GT 5000 does the job well and can even tackle some seriously overgrown gardens. It’s a good entry-level riding mower, and the Craftsman GT 5000 Lawn Tractor manual will tell you how to mount one of these things without injuring yourself in the process.

Besides instructions for first-timers, the Craftsman GT 5000 user manual also goes over some of the malfunctions that the mower can experience. Riding mowers are complex machinery: think of them as a miniature car, with equally as many parts to fix. Our manual covers them all in a user-friendly, garden-bros tone: http://sharedf.com/documentation/craftsman-gt5000-owners-user-manual/
