Craftsman CTX tractor to make its debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show

Article by Christian A., on January 3, 2012

Craftsman will introduce a new CTX tractor at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show – the first time that a lawn tractor is featured at the event. Other models that will debut at the Detroit show include the Honda NSX and Lexus LF-LC Hybrid. The specifications sheet of Craftsman’s CTX tractor won’t be out of place as it has many of the features of the cars displayed there such as the Automatic Traction Control, an EFM system, Electronic Cutting Height Adjustment and Quick Deck Removal.

Powering it is a 30hp Briggs & Stratton engine that enables the tractor to have a top speed of 8mph when moving forward and a 3mph when moving backwards. Sears stores across the country will start to sell the CTX tractor series in February 2012. Craftsman will offer two yard tractor models and two garden tractor models, which have prices that range from $2,999.99 to $6,499.99.

Feature Details: Automatic Traction Control: Off-roading is no problem. Whether mowing on an incline or hauling on a wet surface, the unique automatic traction control system sends power to both wheels independently, so if one slips, the other keeps the tractor under control. EFM System: New cars don't have carburetors and neither does the CTX tractor. The EFM system ensures reliable automotive-style starting and peak engine performance year after year. Electronic Cutting Height Adjustment: To get that perfect lawn, adjusting the cutting height for seasonal changes is a must. This automatic package comes standard on all new CTX models and allows you to adjust the cutting height with the push of a button. Quick Deck Removal: With just a few simple steps, the deck easily comes off, making it simple to perform maintenance like deck cleaning or blade sharpening. Plus, additional attachments can transform the tractor into a hauler, aerator, dethatcher, cultivator, sweeper or snow plow – giving you a tractor that handles your outdoor maintenance requirements year round.
