I bought this mower to replace a 12 year old similar craftsman that is still running strong but was moved to our rental house. I like the easy starting but the handle could be better, the bag could be larger and the width between tires should have been the same front and rear. The mower doesn't track well. This isn't a problem unless you have to mow up against a surfaces or your tires have to follow eachother in a deep mow strip. I guess I will have to give another review after a year or two.

This machine always starts on the first pull. This has a lot of power. It can be used with or without the bag. Sometimes I like to let the clippings fall where they may, to enrich the soil. Other times I like to bag them to make the yard look nice. Works great both ways. It goes by itself, all you have to do is guide it.It also has a Honda engine. I am glad I bought this one.

Thought I was buying a good mower, selling point was the Honda engine. Put it together, literally mowed for less than 5 minutes and mower quit. It will not start, and if it does start will not run. Now, we have to bring it back to Sears for service.
Overall this is absolutely the best lawnmower for the money. Comes with unbeatable Honda GCV160cc engine, usually starts on the first pull, great fuel economy, and excellent weed-whacking power in deep grass. The muffler on this Honda engine is a breakthrough. You will appreciate it while mowing and even more afterwards when your ears are not ringing. The blade emits more sound than the engine exhaust does! Once you have owned a Honda, you will not want to put up with other lawnmower engines. The grass bag is easy to use and works well. This is not Heaven; there are imperfections, starting with perverse EPA regulations that require Ethanol be added to gasoline. Ethanol does not mix well with gasoline for exactly the same reason water does not mix well with oil. Ethanol comes out of solution when gas is stored for any length of time and it is deadly to small engines, ONE TANK of crappy gas will put your lawnmower in the shop. All this and we are burning food (corn) in the bargain. #DefundEPA Protect yourself. ALWAYS BUY THE WARRANTY. Buy your gas at the best gas station you can. These Honda engines will have a long life with Chevron gas. I have had terrible results with Murphy Oil (********)(one tank->shop). Only buy enough gas to last a month at a time, because gasoline with ethanol degrades that fast. I use a stabilizing product in my gas (Sta-Bil). Operating tips: Take care not to 'bang' the front wheels against fences etc. during turns or you will bend the front wheel brackets and when you notice the mower is no longer able to propel itself you will see the front wheels no longer point straight ahead. Avoid 'skidding' the wheels on sidewalks and driveways, this rapidly wears the 'tires' out. Take out the black plastic wingnuts on the handle and the associated bolts and paint them some bright color like dayglo pink that will contrast with the color of grass so you can more easily find them when they fall out. After you have lost a couple of these you will know to keep them tight and keep an eye on them and you will understand the paint suggestion. If I could redesign this lawnmower, I would make these changes: The oversize back wheels do not help anything; I would make them the same size as the front, and relocate all 4 wheels closer to the center of gravity to minimize 'shaving' and facilitate turning. Front and back wheels should be parallel to better run alongside things like sidewalks and driveways. The brackets that allow wheels to adjust to different heights should be beefed up for greater durability, especially the front. The handle on this mower has a crimp to accomodate the operating bail that puts a high rate of curvature in the tube which is hard on the hands; the previous model had a plastic part that clips on the operating bail that made it much easier on your hands. Real rubber leaves black marks but I would gladly accept that to get the much greater lifespan vs the filled PVC 'tires'. Engineers, take note.

First of all I bought this as a gift to my sister .... They gave her a used mower that already had oil in it....It sucks and doesn't self propel correctly and Sears wont return....so I will not be shopping at sears in the future.
I had a choice of buying the B&S engine 190cc or the one with the Honda 160cc, had several B&S so I took a chance on the Honda. I was very please with the engine and power of it. so far no complaints.
This is a Husqvarna HU700F model made for Sears. It has a Honda engine with a choke lever for starting at cold. Original Honda mower use an automatic choke control. Automatic choke will stuck when it is dirty. This lever choke is built better than the automatic choke. Just need to switch the choke position for cold start the engine. The engine normally start in two to three pull. Just like the Husqvarna chain saw engine. It is typical. Most Honda engine should start with one pull or two pull. It has a variable speed front wheel drive. Just no belt cover under the deck to protect the belt. The belt will slip over time and lost the speed control for the front wheel drive.
