Bought this yesterday to replace an old, awesome Craftsman mower that finally died after years and years. OMG... this is a piece of junk! Used it for the first time tonight.... loud, sounds like the blade is going to come off and as for self-propelled? well, maybe that not a lie... the self being YOURself, not the mower. My son told me it sould cost more to get the old one fixed that it would to buy new.... I should have had the old one fixed! It would have been cheaper in the long run. As for "star" rating... I gave it one star, only because it doesn't go any lower.

This mower is extremely heavy and handles like a 1000lb square bowlder. Even though it is self propelled, the mower is so heavy, the front wheels just sit there and spin on the grass. The only way it moves by itself is if you lift up on the handle. The handle is very hard on the hands. Our 14 year old mower handles better than this piece of junk, and as if that wasn't bad enough, there was a huge restocking fee that Sears does not tell you about until you try to return it. It's not like you can try the mower out before you buy it! I would rather cut my grass with a pair of scissors than use this lawn mower again.
I purchased it in June of 2013, and it has been in the shop three times since then and it still doesn't run. When it did run, it was a decent mower, but it has had problems running since I purchased it. It will sometimes start, but it slowly loses power and then sputters out and dies. It has had the carburetor replaced and rebuilt a couple of times but it never lasts. The service department can not answer questions because you have to ship the mower back and wait 2-3 weeks until it comes back, with a couple of notes from the mechanic. Worthless product, and bad service.
For a 6.75 hp motor, sure doesn't have the power to cut tall thick grass. Ended up cutting area twice, once with the height adjustment all the way up. Second pass with adjustment on second level. My old 5.5 hp would cut with no problem. Also, the engagement bar is quite uncomfortable.

We bought this lawn mower because I have been a big fan of Craftsman products. This is the second Craftsman item that I have bought in the last 1 1/2 years with issues. This Ready Start lawnmower always starts up on one pull as advertised, but dies within 30 seconds to 5 minutes of running, I let it set for a few minutes, then it starts back up. After 7 weeks, I returned it and they sent it away for repairs. Three weeks I was without a mower! When I got it back, they replaced the shroud (why?), recoil start (why? this was not an issue), spark plug (why? wasn't fouled out), and adjusted the carburetor. They tried charging me for the spark plug after 5 times of use and I told the clerk and the repair people I wasn't going to pay for anything!! It was a little over 2 months old!! I should have gotten my money back then! Still doesn't run and is getting worse. I can mow 1 strip at a time before it dies, then I have to let it sit for about 5 minutes to cool off. I will not take it back to Sears to have it repaired again. DO NOT BUY!!
It will not start. I feel like if it had a primer it actually would start. no prime my ***. i've only used this mower for one season! i wish i would have bought a honda. yea i checked the spark plug, made sure the fuel is fresh, cleaned the air filter, and i've been out there yanking that cord for too long. piece of ****. i put some drops of gas in the intake and it fired up but then shut right off. do not buy this mower.
