I had my previous mower for 5 years and it was time to replace. I found this at the end of the season in wisconsin and got a great deal. What sold me is the construction of the rear wheels. They were flimsy on my previous model, but are quite solid on this one. Runs great, starts easy, a little more powerful.
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.

I bought this lawnmower no questions asked. Before this, I owned 2 other Craftsman lawnmowers. I did not take care of them, yet my 1st one lasted 12 years & my 2nd 10 years. They started on 1st or 2nd pull every time & cut my lawn nice. This 2011 version of the mower is JUNK! it's very flimsy feeling & now after only 2 1/2 seasons, IT WON'T START!!! I used to buy everything at Sears, no questions asked. Now all they sell is junk & their service sucks, also. Go with a Toro or Honda

easy to get ready to cut; does a good job with the bag or mulching (no leaves left behind.) good power and speed compared to the old style craftsman i was using. wish i had traded to a new one sooner.
It was easy to put together right out the box. However, I had trouble gettIing it to run by just turning key and when tried to pull cord I could not get it to started. I had to let it charge for about 48 hrs instead off the 24 hrs in instructions. When i did get it running mystery hand started to hurt. I agree that even with work gloves on holding down the bar for self propeller my hand began to hurt after 20 mins. I must say once it ran it did pretty well. I enjoyed how easily I was able to adjust the height. U just pull up and move it. My old mower was much more difficlt. I was able to get tgee pull cord to start mower but only when I can turn the key which doesnt make sence because I havent been able to use as a back when the key doesnt work. Bummer as it defeats the purpose of it being a back up if charge dies since I cant use mower till I charge it again and by then I can use key again????.

I just bought this Model 37044 mower to replace my 10-year-old front-wheel drive (fwd) Craftsman mower that served me well; but recently its fwd finally broke. The older model was similar to this new one in price and features, but much better in so many ways. The handle design on the new mower is terrible: the old one had a nice spongy handle; the new one has a thin metal handle that cuts into your hands. The old one had a drive lever that you push down once after starting, and you're in front-wheel drive without having to hold anything else down. The new one has a lever that you have to keep squeezing the whole time you're mowing to keep the mower in drive. So, between the skinny handle, the bail required to start the mower, and the drive lever requiring continuous squeezing, my hand & shoulder began to cramp after just a few minutes of mowing. Also, the so-called "Dust Blocker bagging system" is a joke. The new mower throws out 10 times the dust as the old one (I make sure the bag door is snug against the bag), and the bag capacity is little more than half that of the older mower. So I now have to empty the bag twice as often. And, of course, many metal parts on the older mower have been replaced with plastic parts. Hope the electric start doesn't break - it's the only good feature on this machine. Instead of improving usability, Sears has managed to remove it from this product. I should have bought a Toro.
