fast shipping and very well packaged

slightly updated version of the one i replaced. my only regret was calling sears and letting them send their useless mechanic out to check why mine was not not working right, he walked up to the lawn tractor and touched underneath and told me it was made out of plastic and it was junk. wanted $1,300.00 to replace it, he repeated that over and over again. i bought the same transmission online for $400.00 and I replaced it in 1 1/2 hours........my old one was only 26 months old, cleaned it up after i took it out now i have a spare, it was just trashed up under the plastic cover with grass clippings, twigs and a lot of dried mud. I'll be more careful when i use it from now on.

Picture of part did not match but part was an exact fit which was nice. It did take quite a long time to get. Was close to three weeks. That's a long time to not have a mower. Packaging was super, custom foam all around so no damage. Price was decent not the cheapest but second cheapest.

sears plastic trans-axle unit

The price was good. An expert mechanic installed the part in about 2 hours, not too bad... replaced the old unit that froze up, with just over 200 hours. Hoping this one lasts longer than 200 hours on a 2600 dollar mower, 48 inch twin cyl 22hp fast 7mph mowing. This mower, with single traction, use on Flat Terrain ONLY.

It was easy to install but took 4 hours. Disconnecting and reconnecting the linkage and mower deck took most of the time.

Second failure
August 24, 2018

I have owned a T3000 for about 4 years. In May the the transaxle failed to shift into forward or reverse. I ordered a replacement from Sears Direct. The swap out was straight forward. Less than 3 months later and I am having the same failure. Sears Direct is shipping out a replacement. I don't have a lot of hope that this one will perform any better. It's ironic that I still have my 16 year old T1000 and besides its missing deck it still runs like a champ.

It's simple enough for basic tools and a websearch

The package arrived with no damage to the box and a broken plastic shield on the outside of the transmission wrapping around one of the pulleys. It could have only been damaged prior to being packaged or during packaging, which would be manufacturer's packing department, not Sears. This one, in particular is a plastic transaxle, and was never what I would have hoped for AYP to use, but I didn't care enough about the broken plastic shield to wait another week or so to get this job done so I could mow the grass, so I went ahead and installed it as the main housing, etc., it is good condition. The only other issue I ran into is that the new part that supersedes the original version requires a locknut and washer to install the drive linkage and the old one only had a locking clip. The nut did not come with it. I got lucky and happened to have a locknut on hand that fit it, so I didn't have to make a parts run. As a prior In-home service LG technician, it took me about an hour and a half, including the time I spent looking for a nut to fit it, and pondering about whether or not I felt like sending it back for the damaged shield (actual time to work, maybe 45 minutes at most). It works and I cut the grass on the same day. The price was far better than my dad was quoted by a local shop (over $900 complete with tax and labor). Take it from me. Always get a second quote if you take it somewhere.
