Product Description

The Craftsman 22 inch Self Propelled Mower Delivers a Good-Looking Lawn

The Craftsman 190cc Front Drive Self Propelled Mower delivers versatility and toughness with a value that might just have you thinking lawn care isn't so bad after all. With a 675 Gold Series Briggs & Stratton engine with 190cc's of power, there's no denying this Craftsman mower has the guts to cut down just about any length of grass in its path. No only is the engine potent, but it's easy to start, too, thanks to Ready Start™ and Smooth Start&trade. Ready Start is a system that eliminates the need for priming and choking the engine so all you have to do is pull, which is about 20 percent easier than on other lawn mowers thanks to Smooth Start. The mower pulls its own weight, too, as it cuts its way across your yard with a variable speed gear drive system on the front wheels so it moves at the speed you want it to move - effortlessly. There's no more need to lean into the handle with all your weight to mow up hills or through thick or wet grass which not only makes this Craftsman lawn mower more comfortable, but safer, too.

Even with all of those comfort features, this Craftsman 22 inch Self Propelled Mower gets the job done and done well. Four height positions on the 22 inch high performance deck help you get the ideal look and feel you want on your lawn. Not only do you get to choose how thick and luscious you want your grass, but how to dispose of it as well by bagging, mulching or discharging the clippings. The bagger door automatically stays open to make removing the bag even easier and simply closes with a squeeze of the control ball. Mulching delivers highly important nutrients back to your lawn without the cluttered look of leaving the clippings behind. With so many features on this versatile mower, the hardest thing you might do is put it away - and Craftsman even makes that easy thanks to its folding adjustable handle.

  • Featuring a 22-in. high-performance deck, the Craftsman 190cc Front Drive Self Propelled Mower offers excellent bagging, mulching or discharging
  • 675 Briggs & Stratton Gold Series 190cc* engine with Smooth Start (20% easier to pull); ReadyStart™** (no priming needed); and M.R.S.
  • Front drive, variable speed propelled drive system lets the mower do the work
  • EZ Bagging Access features a bagger door that stays open for easy bag removal
  • Dust-Blocker Grass Bag helps keep dirt away from user
  • Available in all 50 states
  • 2-year warranty protects your investment
  • Made in USA
  • *As rated by the engine manufacturer
    **Starting Promise: Briggs & Stratton Corporation warrants to the original owner, that select 550ex Series™, 675ex Series™, 725ex Series™ and Professional Series™ engines equipped with ReadyStart™ will always start on the first or second pull or we will fix it for free.

Quiet, smooth, fast drive.
I bought this on sale last Fall to replace a 12 year old version of this mower that was showing it's age (rust holes and knocking engine). After using it for a month now, I am quite happy with this unit. [[[PROS]]] [*] This machine is noticeably more quiet than the old one (probably due to the piston slap on the old engine). [*] Drive speed is 50% faster than my old unit. I like to mow at a fast pace, so this is very nice for me. So far, the high drive speed has not bogged down the engine, but I mow every weekend to prevent excessive grass height. [*] Very easy for me to start. I put STABIL in the gas after testing it out last Fall. In the Spring, it started up in 4 pulls with this older gas. Now starts in one pull. MAKE SURE you put STABIL in your gas can! Stale gas is the leading cause of mower failures BY FAR. It's very easy to add to your gas can when filling it up at the gas station. [[[CONS:]]] [*] Having an upper bail (engine control) and lower bail (drive control) on the handle make my hands sore after 30 minutes. The small bars start to really dig in. The new model has a flat plastic cover over the top bail, which I might try to replicate on mine. My old lawnmower had a single bail (engine control) and a locking hand lever (drive control), which did not bother me much. [*] Deck steel thickness (gauge) is a little thinner than the old model. The deck does not flex much (steel is probably a better grade), but I wonder how long until rust eats through it. My old machine had rust holes in the deck, but it's first 10 years were likely harsh from the previous owners. [*] Drive gear box appears to be all plastic. This might not be a problem, but I wonder how robust this will be. The drive wheels on my old AND new mower have plastic gears, and they will fail if you bump the mower head-on into walls/fences/trees while in drive too often. When navigating around tricky spots, let go of the drive bail and push it manually. This tip should make your self propel system last for years.

Self Propelled Mower

Beware of this mower. I do not recommend it. It starts on the first pull when it is cold but when the engine is hot it will not restart. You must wait an hour or more for the engine to cool down before it will restart. I have had this mower for over two years. I use it mainly for trim mowing. Since I mainly use it for trim, I have tolerated its shortcomings. I know that once I start it, I must finish mowing before I stop. If you bag your clippings, this mower will not work for you. When you stop to empty the bag, the mower will not restart without a long wait.

Good Mower and Good Price

Needed a mower in a hurry when the self propelled broke on my old mower. Found this online at Sears, used store pick up and able to pick up fast and efficiently. The little bit of assembly was easy, filled it with oil and gas and it started right up. Used it several times since and starts right up. Hope that continues! One word of caution is that it came out of the box with the height adjustments at odd levels so make sure to change to your desired level. Thanks so far Sears for your service and Craftsman products. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to a dependable mower as they are hard to find.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

OK but could be better

I purchased this mower to replace my 25+ year old Honda mower. This mower starts smooth and runs great but it really sucks that it turns off every time you take your hands off of the operation bar, I can see the pull start having to be replaced more often because of this feature. This mower is also front wheel drive which isn't all that good either, if your not applying a little bit of upward leverage on the push bar then the wheels just want to spin without assisting you in propelling the mower forward. Over all I'd say the engine runs great, the mower looks pretty good but operates weak. Having to put fuel additive in the fuel kind of sucks as well. You'd figure that with ethanol gas being around for so long that they would have figured out how to make their engine so that it wouldn't be needed by now, (my old Honda never had to have it).

A decent mower for the price

I love the easy starting of this mower. Usually it takes only one pull. There are a few minor issues, however. When not using the side discharge the mower stalls when cutting tall grass or weeds. The side discharge chute also comes off under those circumstancessince it is only held on by the mulching door spring. Other than that I am satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this product.
