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.

with lots of mower options available, I took my lawn size into consideration as a driving factor in choice. I opted for the 140cc and it has performed great. I look forward to a full summer of enjoyable cuts.

With all of the different models available I considered the size of my lawn and decided to go for the 140cc. It handles the job perfectly. great machine so far and I'm looking forward to many enjoyable cuts.
Purchased yesterday the mower was easy to assemble and started on the first pull. I mowed for about 45 minutes in tall grass mulching and the mower did an excellent job. If you are looking for simplicity and have no bagging requirement why spend more...

Bought this mower two years ago, in the spring of 2012. Always liked Sears and Craftsman. So I used it once - it ran fine. I live in a drought area, so I didn?t need to use it again for months. When I went to use it in the fall it would not start. I had to take it in to Sears for repair. They replaced the carburetor; it worked for my fall mowing. Next spring, same problem. I weekwhacked the lawn while the mower was in Sears? repair, so it never got used in the spring. That fall, same problem. Sears suggested I buy some special, very expensive fuel without ethanol. I ran it once that fall. This spring I pulled it out for a spring mow. Same story. This time I got to use it since I refused to weedwhack the lawn again. I waited until it came back from the repair shop ? so it worked fine a few weeks back. We have had a lot of rain recently so I am ready to mow again, but the machine will again not start. Short story ? two years, four repairs with four new carburetors, and only three, maybe four actual mows. And a $50 gift certificate from Sears, since their lemon laws are so screwed. Save your money and get something better, even if you only need to mow a few times a year.
We have two Craftsman push-mowers...a 12 year old Craftsman model 917.388810 (Honda engine) and this unit. This is our second season with this Briggs-powered model. The crankshaft now has an excessive amount of drag, probably due to a lower bearing failure. This mower lasted approximately 1.5 hours into this mowing season before failure. Air filter is clean and fully seated in the airbox Crankcase is filled to the proper level with clean oil Carburetor had no issues (we drain our fuel in the fall) This engine should NOT have experienced this failure. I'd like to give the product more stars and a better rating, but when the engine won't start, it pretty much fails its only objective...to mow grass. It's a glorified paper-weight until I get the parts from Sears parts direct to fix it.
I was so glad to find a Craftsman lawn mower at a great price! I thought I was going to have to pay a lot more. I also bought the 3 year warranty @ $40 which is also a great price. The sales associate was a big help and very professional, and it took no time for the layaway department to find it and load it into my truck. Very Pleased with this experience. My son has used the mower about 5 times, and says it is easier to maneuver and to start, compared to the Riggs and Stratton we had previously.
