Ratings & Reviews
The Craftsman 22 inch Self Propelled Mower Delivers a Good-Looking LawnThe 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.

Engine wise it is great. Started first pull right out of the box. First time using it it mowed well but the front doesn't seem heavy enough to get traction on incline. Second time I was mowing the self propelled wheels stopped working. I have requested a return and I'm just waiting to get back to the store to return it.
I specifically ordered this self-propelled mower because it had both the pull cord and a start button. However, when I removed it from the carton and begin assembling it, I thought the attachment for the start button was missing. It was missing alright - it didn't even come with the start feature. Because of stomach surgery, I couldn't use the pull cord feature, so I thought I had found the perfect solution ... not so. Returned the mower.

Purchased this as a replacement for a Toro Personal Pace self-propelled lawn mower. It's taking a while to get used to the front wheel drive on this Craftsman and have to constantly fight the tendency to push down on the handle (it raises the front wheels and loses traction). Overall, I'm very happy with the value.
overall a good mower. husband says rear-propelled better for guiding but he was OK with it since wife purchased while he was away on business trip & old mower failed.
Very little assembly required, which made it easy to just start mowing. Oil was also included, which was great. The mower was VERY easy to start, with no priming first! We love it!

Are your like me and like to mulch away and try to skip a week now and then? For the price your not going to find a better mower. The Toro mowers seem to bog down easier. Do make sure after the fall to clean out and check the air filter and check the air flow or you will end up with carb problems. Mine was jammed packed with leaf dust after last fall.

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.

I ordered on line and picked it at the store. It was eazy to assemble and started on the first pull.I like that I can choose to use the bag, mulch or the side vent.
