The LT2042 is the middle-cost offering in Snapper's LT200 series of lawn tractors. Snapper promotes this series as powerful and easy to use. The models in this series differ in the size of their mowing deck and the power of their engine. The 42" mowing deck on the LT2042 comes low in the middle of the LT18538's 38" deck, and the flagship LT2250's 50" mowing deck. The Briggs and Stratton Extended Life Series V-Twin OHV engine on the LT2402 is 20 hp, which is the middle power rating of the series (which starts at 18.5 hp and goes up to 22 hp). This engine combined with the K46 hydrostatic transmission make driving this lawn tractor feel like driving a car. The 14" turning radius of the LT200 series makes it easier to get around obstacles and hit tight turns, which will cut down your mowing and trimming time. The cast iron pivoting front axle, which will make uneven terrain and hills easier to navigate, is a standard feature in the LT200 series.
