After research, this seemed to be the best fit for our needs. Really impressed with the starting on the first pull. The lighter weight was nice to handle in the yard, enjoyed the deck washout adaptor, etc. Everything just seemed great--then one summer evening, about the 10-12 th time I tried to use the mower, it decided it would not start, not on one pull or 20, So, we took it to the Sears repair shop, since we had also purchased additional warranty. Surprised to learn that the folks in the repair shop said they had experienced a lot of this type problem "because the gas is bad, you have to use higher grade fuel, or add stabilizer to your gas". Well, I had never heard of such in the 50 years I have used power mowers. Left the mower to be repaired and after 2 weeks and many phone calls have now learned my "new" mower is ready to come back home--with a charge attached!! I questioned ANY charge since the mower was about 6 weeks old and was told they had to replace the spark plug and filter "and that is not covered by any warranty".
I will retrieve this mower from the shop and will sell it this weekend at a garage sale--I have had my last Craftsman mower, which is a shame, this one is probably the 8-10th one I have owned with no problems EVER until now. Disappointed in Briggs and Stratton and Sears. My final stop is back to the salesman who sold it to me with all the promises about how great it was!!!
Disappointed in Texas.
Bought 190cc great price. But ran into problem cutting the lawn. Set both wheels at same number, found height in front not same as in back, had to set front on 4 and 3 on back to get same height cutting. Plastic wheels whats the deal? I can not see that lasting very long. But do not get me wrong, I have had good results by buying at sears. Just wish craftsman would take a little bit more time in making what they make. I would like to think it will last a long time, and not be a throw away after just a few years of using it.
Not bad for power and engine performance, but the adjustable height system is GARBAGE!! I try to keep my grass cut kind of tall, but the mower body kept falling. Sometimes I couldn't even get the mower started before I had to pick it back up and readjust the height control. The spring-loaded starter went out after only two years, and the local Sears repair shop is only open 9am to 5pm M-F. I work those hours, too. Don't people need mowers serviced on the weekends?

I can?t push fast enough to load this mower down and compared to the battery powered mower it replaced it feels weightless. I read some of the negative reviews and I do know it does not like to start hot (maybe something to do with the auto choke) but I give it 15 minutes to cool off and so far 3 pulls is the max. Anyone looking for a solid affordable push mower this is my recommendation.
I never used this. It was damaged out of the box. This is where Sears customer service bombed. The lever to adjust the height of the deck was bent into the wheel, jamming it. I could have bent it into location, but this is my first brand new mower, and who wants bent parts that look nasty on their first new thing? So I called customer service and for some reason my phone number isn't linked to my order, but I have my order number. The first guy hung up on me. The second guy, JD, couldn't help me (even with an order number!) because I didn't have the phone number linked to the order, so he gave me a phone number to call. It was Chase Bank. I love Chase, but they can't help me with my mower. So I abandoned phone calls and tried chat. They said I had to remove the part, send it to them where they will inspect it and determine if it is bent (at my cost). If it is determined to be bent, they will send me a new part and I can put it on. So I'm returning it.
The large 7.25HP motor really cuts through thick, tough St. Augustine grass without hesitation. This is a replacement for another Craftsman mover 6 years old with 4.25HP motor. Older mower struggled in Spring/Summer to cut the thick grass, this mower, no problems!! No five stars due to the large amount of plastic used vs. all metal in prior version. Time will tell if this holds up as well. Strange handle setup (triangle shaped vs. straight), but getting used to it. Softened it up using tennis wrap.
Have had it for less than 10 months,used 6-8 times at most always use stabilizer,fresh fuel,changed oil,mower stored in basement during Winter. Mower has engine problem,talk to Sears mechanic,told me they have had nothing but problems with this model.Got no help from store

Pros: I bought this mower last year after reading lots of reviews. The engine worked awesome all summer it started first pull almost every time except the very first time I had to pull it a few times but I think that was because it needed to prime the system. At the end of summer I ran the mower until it ran out of gas and put it away for the winter. Today I filled up the tank and the mower started right up on the first pull I was impressed. The bag is kind of small which makes it very easy to empty I am a big guy so I would trade a bigger bag for less empties but very easy to empty and install. The undercarage cleaning system is pretty cool but I don't like that the nipple is plastic it seems it could be broken very easily. Cons: The wheels are plastic which makes me think I will eventually have them break on me but no issues so far. The handle bar is kind of skinny so its slightly uncomfortable for a big hand like mine. Over all a great mower.
I bought this at the end of last year and have only used it maybe 4 times. It was hard to start out of the box but it finally started and has been running great. Strong engine that cuts through tall grass. I went to start it yesterday and it wouldn't start. I pulled the spark plug and it was soaked in gas so I can assume that I am getting fuel. The plug looks okay, but I'll be buying a new plug this afternoon since you can never tell by just looking. Hopefully that will fix it. If that doesn't work I will be severely disappointed with this Craftsmen mower. My last Craftsmen lasted 8 years before I started having issues with it.
