We had a lawnmower similar to this one years ago. Then we bought a larger one and we had a lot of trouble with it. After getting it worked on 4 times we went back to this model and we are much happier with it. Runs great.
Not as strong as my old Craftsman 20 HP - bogs down on any incline. It also bogs down cutting zoysia grass on perfectly flat yard. I have to slow to a crawl for it to cut even at #4 cutting height. You can sometimes feel the mower twisting or torquing? The engine is loud, but that doesn't really annoy me. I'm not crazy about the gas tank under the hood. It is higher than the older models when the tank was under the seat and far easier to fill. It is very difficult to see how much gas there is in the tank since there is no float or fuel level indicator. I kept my old Craftsman for 12 years. I'm leery that this one won't last that long. The best feature is the turn tight radius.

I checked it out at the store. Everything appeared to work , so loaded it on trailer. When I got it home and backed it off trailer it was going about 1 mph in reverse, I was like wow my old craftsman tractor wasn't this slow. So I went to put it in the shed which has about a 5 degree incline going into it. This tractor couldn't even back up this incline. There was no wheel spin or anything it just sat there,I thought I had bumped it out of reverse. I tried several time with the same results. I immediately loaded it back on the trailer and took it back to sears. My advice to you look elsewhere for a lawn tractor.There's no quality control for this craftsman product.
Be sure to carefully follow the set-up instructions, to include leveling the mower deck. If you do that you will be quite pleased with this mower.
