This is the mower I would design

I LOVE this mower.  This has been my summer of lawnmower heartbreak.  My old mower doesn't work, and is probably fixable, but I don't have the time for that.  Meanwhile, the grass continues to grow and needs mowing.  I want to trust the experts who sell these things because they have knowledge I don't have about features and benefits of the various machines, as well as what would work best on my terrain (hill front and back, sideyards are flat strips on both sides).  I was first talked into a high-end self-propelled mower.  I liked NOTHING about that mower.  Self-propelled mowers WON'T move backwards, so there is no mowing back over a small area that seemed to be missed, or maneuvering in and out of tight spaces.  The mower was so heavy it pulled me down the hill sideways (scary).  Rear wheel drive self-propelled machines tend to spin like a car stuck in a snow drift (I found that out AFTER purchase), so I had ruts all over the yard.  After the spinning, I had to push hard to get it to start to move in a forward motion.  So much for the ease of self-propelled.  Turned out to be more of a detriment than a benefit.  I couldn't bear the thought of mowing, so that mower had to go back.  Next, the high rear wheel machine.  Definitely not as maneuverable as my old machine, but basically okay.  Then a home improvement store cheapie that was well reviewed.  That mower was lightweight and easy to use, but would cut no lower than 4", and left a 3" wide swath along the curb and along the concrete mowing strip. Both areas had to be trimmed by hand.  Way too much hand work, and who wants to mow twice a week to keep up with the long grass?

Getting desperate for a simple mower that would work, I turned to Sears.  Finding a plain old-fashioned mower that is NOT self-propelled and doesn't have specialty wheels is not easy.  Of the few available, this one seemed like the best.  The mower box was easily loaded into my mini-van, and easily unloaded by me, a 5'8" 56 year old woman about 145 lb.  The salesman showed me what I would need to do to set up the handle.  I added oil according to the instructions, and poured in the gas.  Set up time took no more than a few minutes.  Because of my last experience with the 4" tall grass on the lowest mower setting, I set these mower wheels to the lowest possible setting.  The mower started easily with one pull.  Started to mow, and WOW!  This machine actually cuts grass.  It was clear that the lowest setting was going to scalp the yard, so I easily adjusted the wheels to a higher setting.

I typically mow and then cross-cut each time I cut the grass.  Not necessary with this mower.  It cuts a nice clean swath the first time around.  The mower deck DOES extend beyond the width of the wheels, as detailed in the product description.  -  The curb and concrete mowing strips were cut clean and beautifully; no hand edging needed.

This mower is easy to start, easy to use, easy to push uphill, easy to maneuver around obstacles, has easily adjusted wheel height, is lightweight, and sturdy.  I especially like the fabulously designed "flow through" wheels that are easily sprayed clean of grass and dirt from both sides.

I am very glad to have found this mower.  Based on my previous three disasters, I was beginning to despair of finding a simple lawnmower like they used to make, and was wondering if it was just me.  I was expecting to soon see my picture with a line through it in the yard machine departments of the big box stores.  I don't have to dread mowing anymore.

Thanks, Sears!

Disappointed
The main reason why I returned this mower, and I cannot believe that no one else has pointed this out, is that the rear portion of the mower deck between the two back wheels, is actually lower than the rest of the deck. I tried to clearly show this in the picture. This causes many issues when mowing around roots and so forth. I found myself literally pushing or dragging the mower on the grass/ground/tree roots in many spots. Initially I thought it was the black safety flap in the back but after I removed that piece, the problem became clear. This mower is clearly built for a flat postage stamp yard.

Great Lawnmower - First Craftsman

I refuse to spend a lot of money on a push lawnmower. Our friends spend almost a car payment on lawn mowers. SMH. I usually buy Weedeater brand with a Briggs & Stratton engine. This was my first Craftsman. I am sold. I don't understand the negative comments about this mower. The only negative thing I have to say and it goes for all the ones I looked at. There is no drain plug for the oil. The only way is to flip the mower and drain it or siphon. I prefer the drain plug. Other than that, the mower is great.

easy to operate

This craftmans mower comes 99% put together and fit easily with out the box into the trunk of my Honda Civic. I only needed to pull once and it started. Great price for this mower. I love craftsman and wouldn't think about any other brand.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Pretty darn good...

I needed a lawn mower temporarily and didn't want to spend a lot. I was very pleasantly surprised. It was easy to put together and always starts on the first pull. It pushes easily and does a great job. I even used it one day on some wet grass after it rained and it cut like a champ. I would buy this again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Push Mower Simple & Easy to Start

TroyBilt self-propelled mower from ***** lasted 3 years. Decided to return for a simple Craftsman push mower because past Craftsman mowers ran 10 years. This works great in backyard that is fenced in. Takes only 15 minutes to mow & only need a simple but basic mower for this purpose. Use riding mower for front & side yards. This Craftsman is easy to start & mulch feature beats emptying a grass catcher.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great little mower for the price

I bought this mower to mow my 1/2 acre lot. I've owned it for two seasons now. If you're looking for a no frills mower that is reliable, than this is it. I've had not problems at all. My only small complaint would be that it doesn't have much of a vacuum when mulching. Sometimes leaves will just blow around instead of getting pulled in and mulched

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Don't waste your time or money

Purchased it today and tried to mow the lawn. I will be returning it tomorrow. For starters the gas cap is cheaply made and hard to get on and off. Gas cap is also a twist lock and not threaded making me wonder about durability. The clearance of the deck is not high enough to accommodate grass longer than 2 1/2 inches tall. You end up pushing grass around and is awful on any slopes or bumps as the blade will hit. Max cutting height is 1 inch. The biggest issue I have is the discharge chute is held on by spring tension and does not lock down or actually attach to the mower. Every time the engine stalled (repeatedly in my 3 inch tall grass) I would try to clean out discharge shoot and it would pop right off. If the chute rubbed against anything it would pop right off. Engine did start right up and sounded nice but seemed to lack the power my old 5 hp craftsman had and would stall out easily. This mower would work on a perfectly flat lawn with grass that gets mowed weekly (which isn't what I have or do).
