      Nice mower
      I bought this mower before the mowing season started, I did my comparisions with other brands and this was the one I bought. Still very happy even now that the mowing season is over. Here is a couple of things I really liked, The power, the electric start is very nice option, deck cleaning port plus its easy to change the height when needed.

      JUNK - DO NOT BUY
      I bought this mower 3/18/12. It has electric start and a pull rope but no primer bulb to prime it with fuel. The first couple of times I used the mower it performed fine, but if you let it sit for any period of time you will never get it to start. I've replaced the spark plug numerous times, had the carburetor cleaned, the carburetor replaced, and once again - it won't start. When I attempted to get the mower repaired under warranty I was told it was a fuel related problem and therefore wasn't covered. I use the fuel recommended by Craftsman and I always make sure to add stabilizer to the fuel. With no primer bulb it's just impossible to keep fuel flowing through the system and get the mower to start. I use the same fuel in my old Craftsman mower that has a primer bulb and pull start and it always starts on the 1st or 2nd pull. This mower is just a piece of junk. Unless you are a small engine mechanic and know how to clean/replace carburetors stay away from this mower. I looked on Consumer Reports and I'm pretty sure my next mower will be a Honda. They score nearly 20 points higher than Craftsman.

      WILL NOT START!!!!!!!!! EVER almost

      so far : 1 new charger unit, 4 spark plugs,1 air filter (not really needed) new tank of gas every usage because any non stabilized gas would never START this mower.. Stabilized gas almost started it.almost Front five just digs ruts, height adjustment nearly locked up after a season. paid the same amount of repair fees that the darn thing cost me. i am getting a goat it would have been a better choice in the first place.

      outstanding craftsman push button start self-propelled mower

      only drawback is needing to periodically plug in mower for recharging, but in my experience could use several times over two week period before recharging. would be convenient if there was a simple electronic gizmo that would monitor battery charge, like for instance my iPhone.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Muscle and Energy saver

      We selected this self-propelled mower because of the electric start. It makes it easier to get going and finished with a minimum of expended effort. Great advantage for anyone having difficulty pulling a starter cord. High rear wheels are a back-saver too.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      190cc Briggs & Stratton lawn mower

      This mower is very powerful and drives itself easily. Starts quickly with a push button I find it bulky and difficult in corners since it is longer and heavier than the budget type. also the handle bar is not round so holding is very uncomfortable on the hands.

      return to sender

      The handle is poorly designed, pinches your hands, and the amount of pressure to engage the drive is a little bit harder than hanging from a monkey bar. The drive is very weak on top of being hard to use. the side discharge hole is so small that if you are cutting high grass at all it plugs. If you try and mulch the air holds the bag door open a bit and creates a dust cloud that makes you look like Pigpen from Peanuts. The flap on the back of the mower folds back under wvery time you try to pull the mower back , making it pull like it doesnt even have any wheels. Once there is any weight in the bag, its a push mower, plain and simple. Well at least it starts easy, well actually that is until it warm, then not so easy. This mower should come in yellow only as it designed a lemon. And if you want to take your lemon and make it into lemon aid , buy a different mower

      Very good Mower

      I owned it for about 2 mos now and start up every time either by pull start or push button. Does a very good job cutting the grass.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      New Mower

      The easy start is very nice and you barley need to pull at all. This is the first self propelled and it is not bad but wish the lever was a little easier to grasp as you typically only use very little power. One thing I wish was better was the bag sealing to the mower as grass does come out at the top slightly no matter how many adjustments I made.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
