Great little mower!
Everything you would expect in a quality Craftsman. Very smooth operation, turning radius is excellent, keeps cutting even in tall grass, and comfortable stable ride.

Ehhh! Blah.
The mower is a little slow especially in reverse. Uneven terrain causes the deck to torque which leaves mower stripes. Turning around trees is nice but if the ground around the tree is not level... the machine tends to push in a strait line. Quite a bit louder than other mowers on the market. Single cylinder engine causes a lot of vibration. Good on gas use. Can't say this is worth the money. I'd look into other brands.

This is my first riding mower, had it since May and it works great. Simple to use and not that loud. It can go pretty fast if you push it. Its worth buying.

A great mower

My last mower was purchased new from Sears and lasted us a very long time. I think this mower will also last a very long time as well. I love the fact that even when Sears products age, you can still find parts for the product to make it last an extremely long time. Just love the new mower!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent heavy duty machine

On my first two uses of this mower I was pleased with the way it cut and the power to cut tall grass. I like the two & one half gallon fuel tank save me time on refueling.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice Tractor

Looks good and cuts well. The one negative thing that I noticed is that it rattles around occasionally. I don't have a perfectly flat yard so I hope that doesn't mean that it will break down faster.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

excellent mower

this mower starts and runs great. I have a lot of trees and the turn tight feature lets me mower around trees without backing up several times like my old mower. the hose connect makes cleaning the mowing deck a breeze. The mowers fuel tank has plenty of capacity to mow my yard several times without filling up. The mower has a great look and lots of power to pull my trailer behind with a large load.The shift on the go makes it easy to speed up and slow down when I need to. Over all this is the best mower I have ever owned. I would rate this mower a solid 5 out of five. I will be buying more tools from sears in the future. thanks sears from Jack

great tractor

I had a craftsman for six years it always did the job never a problem except to change the battery and the cutting blades . I bought this beautiful tractor and this machine cuts like a dream. bought hubcaps with it so it looks nice . to cut in reverse just turn the key to that position and leave it there and it drives and cuts in reverse without having to do anything . I was used to my old craftsman and I shifted to reverse and to higher gears . this hydrostatic transmission is a dream I use my right hand and I can stop. reverse . and go faster effortlessly its great for my knees .my back and my feet . if I get into trouble the left foot brake stops the tractor on a dime . I paid an extra 300.00 for the three year warranty that covers anything and everything even if I hit something. I pay nothing and they come out and fix it if they cant fix they move it where they can. i think this tractor will last many years and I am happy with it .

I would recommend this product to a friend.

nice mower

I've only use the mower one time so far, but it seems very good. I like the automatic speed control which lets you increase or decrease speed while you are mowing. The turning radius is also nice. The only bad thing is that I'm only 5ft tall, so if I lean forward on the seat, it will shut off.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
