Make your Lawn the Best on the Block with the Craftsman 22 inch Lawn Mower
The Craftsman Rear Drive Self Propelled Mower 160cc 22inch boasts Honda's lightest and quietest engine, so you won't disturb the neighbors. Although it might be hushed and smaller than other lawnmowers, this Honda engine still produces enough power to spin the single blade easily and efficiently and cut through grass you've been letting go for a week or so. To help, the 22 inch mowing deck effortlessly adjusts with four height settings so you can take care of the long stuff or trim your lawn to that perfect length.
The Craftsman 22 inch Lawn Mower is extremely comfortable to drive. An adjustable handle with Craftsman's EZ Walk Dual Trigger System lets you comfortably take control of the reliable variable speed rear gear drive system with either hand, so you no longer have to lean into it. Plus, it folds easily to take up less space in the garage or shed. EZ EZ Bagging Access allows the bagger door to stay open for easier removal, and when it comes to emptying the dust blocker grass bag, Craftsman's EZ Blade Control keeps the engine running while stopping the cutting blade with the simple release of the handle, so you never have to restart in the middle of your work of course, you don't have to bag at all since this Craftsman mower can also mulch or simply cut if you choose. And if this lawn mower is too quiet, you can also choose to let out that primal yell to let the neighborhood know who is king of your lawn.

This is the worst purchase I have ever made.....Started up nice the first few times by the third time i tried to use it it I could not get it started. My son tried to get it started my father tried to get it started. Right now it's sitting in my garage waiting to be returned. It's unfortunate but I think it was returned once before I purchased it. Guess what? it's a piece of junk don't waste your money or your time for the cost it's not even close to being worth it.
I purchase this lawn mower last May 3, 2012. 89 days I returned it because the drive broke. Sears gave me a new one. Two weeks later the B&S motor wouldn't start, took it back and paid the difference to get a Honda motor and ext. warranty. June 2013 I took it back because the drive broke. They keep it for 5 weeks because the repair depot was busy. They couldn't get drives. Today I took the lawn mower back for a broken drive. The Honda motor always starts but the drive is plastic and cheap.

Mower back fired and was hard to start. Kept stalling, factory throttle settings wrong. Even when adjusted, still kept stalling and backfiring. When taken for return, service people were in no hurry to help and kept taking other "buying" customers first. Was given third degree about why I was returning the product.
I needed a mower. Went right for a Craftsman. Plagued with problems. It's not 2 years old and I've replaced 2 wheels, bag, bag frame, spark plug (it melted!), the muffler shot off one day, it back fired last week (had to change my pants), the pull cord has broken and is now about 8 inches long, no power, gas guzzler and then today the adapter plate for changing the blade (my 3rd), crumbled. I don't know how the blade was staying on ... I'm very surprised I still have both my feet.
I originally bought this mower without thinking twice because I owned this same one serveral years ago and loved it. Sadly I sold it when I moved into a condo for a few years and did not need a mower any longer. I am now in a house again and have owned this one for a few months now and am a bit disappointed. First of all it is a very heavy mower and hard to turn. My hands cramp at times holding the handle. Here recently I noticed that one of the rear wheels was coming loose and I had to re-tighten. Other then that I love the Honda engine, it always starts right up and runs smooth.
I bought this mower on September 29th. I brought it home, put the oil in, filled it gas, and it started right up. However, the blade would not turn. I thought I was doing something wrong and re-read the directiions. finally I called Sears and asked to bring it back. I emptied the gas out and brought it back and they ordered a new one and I picked it up and brought it home and repeated the process. The second one started right up and the blade turned for about two bags full of clippings and then wouldn't turn any more. I brought it back and decided to give Sears one more chance before going for the ********** or Lowe's junk mowers made in China. I bought a Craftsman mower with a Briggs and Stratton motor and it has worked fine. I heard later that the Honda motor is actually made in China, but have not confirmed that.
I originally bought this mower because of the Honda engine and the Craftsman brand. My family has always had Honda mowers and they've done great jobs and lasted a long time. With this mower, I used it once a week for the first two weeks with 2 loads each time, no problems. The third time I used it, it started backfiring and stuttering. When engaging the blades after stopping, the engine would slow down, then stop. Mind you, my grass is not that thick or tall to cause the engine to overwork; I even tried lifting the mower up to prevent this. I ended up taking the mower back and got a replacement, thinking this was just a defective one, it happens. The replacement worked ok the first time, though it did start stuttering a little on the 2nd or 3rd bag. Now it won't start at all. Not overfilling the bag, I put in the first bottle of oil, as instructed, there is sufficient gas before I start each time. Headed back to the store, thinking about a different model. Very frustrating.
I just purchased this mower today, (NEW) . I mowed less than half of the front yard, and the blade stopped turning. This is the THIRD mower I have purchsed this year from Sears. It seems that Craftsman is NO longer the quality it once was. All three mowers that I have purchased seem to have some flaw that renders the mower usless, or at very least very difficult to use. The first mowers' Kohler engine failed after only two uses, the second mowers self propell was faulty, now the third mower has blade engagement problems! These are lawn mowers, one of the simplest machines ever made, yet Craftsman has managed to produce such a poor design. The designer of this piece(s) of equipment obviously doesn't have to mow a yard with it. THE DESIGN: The problem with the design is that the wheel base is too long. This adds overall extra weight which leads to difficulty turning the mower, which in turn degrades the ease of its use. The blade engagement lever is a cool idea (if it would work properly), but for the majority, it is an unnessesary component ~ just another problem to have to deal .... with in my case. The self-propell doesnt seem to have much control. It either runs extremely slow and thus need to push, or run extremely fast to keep up when its fully engaged. There is no happy medium with this. WORD TO THE WISE ~ DO NOT PURCHASE!
