Model 107.25007 30 HP, 54" Deck, 1187 lbs. When I Bought It Posted by Richard H.H. on 06/16/2013

This garden tractor is categorized as an "estate tractor." It was introduced at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

I bought this Garden Tractor from the Sears Outlet store & had never been used. I paid $4,300, web price was $6,500 on sale, MSRP was $7869. I was able to directly compare it to the GT6000 26 HP unit in the store. I accidentally started the CTX and it is so quiet that nobody noticed.

The CTX9500 (Craftsman Tractor Experience) has power/tilt steering, hydraulic deck lift, electric blade height control, automatic traction control electronic fuel management (fuel injection) on a 30HP Brigg & Stratton Pro Engine and most of all dual wheel locking transaxle on 24"x12"-12 tires. The GT6000 had 26HP Kohler and was half the weight of the CTX.
