I bought this mower and liked it. It was a little slow on hills. But after two years and three months the engine was ready to explode. When I tried to start it the mower made a screening noise. I took it into the Sears shop and the tech said the motor needed to be replaced. Three months after the warranty expired. I had always checked the oil kept it clean and did not use it in any strange way. Planned obsolescence ?
Ten years ago I purchased a similar model from Sears and it ran smoothly and effortlessly for those 10 years. Other than standard maintenance, the only thing that had to be replaced were the tires after 9 years. I am in Florida and our weather requires weekly mowing for most of the year and every other week for a short duration during the cooler moths. My past positive experience influenced my purchase of this mower this past week to replace the great machine that I had such good luck with, thinking that I would receive an equivalent mower, the specs seemed to match. The motor was the same and does seem to start easily and run fine, but that is where the similarity's end. This mower is made of much thinner metals and uses much more plastic. The handle does not fold easily as suggested, parts must be removed. The back wheels are only somewhat larger than the front. While mowing using the mulching set- up grass and debris blow up at the user from under the machine and in between the cover flap and the deck, The bag blows dust. The handle is quite uncomfortable. The wheels do not appear to have any ball bearings, just plastic on metal and manufactured with very thin plastic.The most distressing issue with this mower for me was the wheel adjustment levers. If you never need to change your settings you'll be fine, but if you need to change them frequently, as I do, from front to back yard, you will be frustrated, unless you have very large hands. The back levers are very short and extremely difficult to manipulate unless you can grab the lever and tire at the same time that you lift the mower with the other hand. I ended up having to extend the levers past the tires so that I could make the necessary adjustments. This mower is cheaply manufactured and even if the engine lasts I do not expect to get more than a year or two before parts break or wear off. Shame on sears, this will be my last craftsman mower. Such a disappointment!
Easy to put together. Started on first light pull, works well, I bought because of the Honda engine and self-propelled combo. For the price, its a great setup. I thought the speed was pretty good, only issue is the handle which has been brought up in other reviews.
we have this same mower, but its like old as dirt w have had it for years, literally like 7-9 years, and we have never done any maintenance on it other than add gas or oil & all that was wrong with my old one was the handle for self drive needed repair. so we decided just to buy a new one. it was on sale too which was great- love that it is lighter than the old one & I like the black instead of red. the Honda motors are hard to kill just like the cars. the grass collection bag is easy to put on and take off as well, I will always stick with sears & Honda mowers.
I bought it because of the honda engine. After 30 minutes, I couldn't get it to start. Returned it and picked up a honda brand mower. Started the first pull. I think the one I got May have been defective. My previous craftsman mower lasted 25 years!
I have been using this mower weekly for 3 months. The mower starts on the first pull and cuts the grass very well. My yard is a pretty standard sized suburban yard. The self propelled function works well, especially given the uneven areas throughout my yard. The water hose receptacle for cleaning the undercarriage is a nice touch. Overall I am very satisfied with the mower.
