a rubik cube to put together
This is the hardest lawn mower to put together and get to run that I can imagine. I tried for a day by myself, then two neighbors came over to help (one is an engineer), we still couldn't get it to run. I then returned the machine to sears, where a helpful employee showed me the tricks that were involved.

Great lawn mower

This lawn mower is everything that they say about it. I have had quite a few other lawm mowers but nothing compares to this one. Easy to operate and puts the joy back into yardwork.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good mower but not for hills

My previous craftsman mower was 16 years old. One of the issues for the old mower was the clips that held the handle to the mower broke and new one's wouldn't keep that darn handle attached. I was thrilled to see a different design for the handle attachment on this mower (wish it was on all the new models). I also liked the one lever to change the height, it made changing the height quick and easy. I have thick grass and it spit it out fairly well, it only clogged when it was wet. Dry grass shot right out. I didn't use the grass catcher way to small for my size property. I ended up returning it as I was told the rear wheel drive would be great for hilly property but that is NOT the case. I couldn't get it to climb at all and there isn't enough weigh in the rear of the mower to keep it down so as I went up the hill I ended up pushing the handle bar upward thus raising the rear wheels. The wheel tread design has changed from my previous mower and can't grip with the cheap plastic tires with a poor tread design. I slipped at one point and it came back at me which was when I decided it had to go back. I think the hill also killed it as the rear wheel wasn't spinning consistently as it should have. The sears salesman agreed that the drive wasn't pulling as much as it should. I am going with a craftsman awd mower. Hopefully it works on the hills. My old mower was a front wheel drive and no one believes that was better but it truly was because it had great tread design and the front wheels really gripped the ground and pulled the mower up the hills and continued to grip regardless if the rear wheels came off the ground. I may try to swap the tires from the old mower to the new one. I hope Craftsman improves the tread design as all the mowers have the same pattern. If you have a flat lawn then this is a very nice mower with decent power. Steer clear if you have hills.

SURPRIZINGLY GREAT MOWER

My wife has arthritis in her hands and has trouble grasping handles for long periods of time. With the my stride system she is able to just to exert force on the handle and it moves. (Rather then bars and levers on other models). The my stride system works great and after one mow the BS engine always started in 1-2 pulls. I was worried that the engine was not big enough for the unit but it did a fine job of mulching even in thick grass. The unit climbed the side of a ditch like a billy goat. The wash out port worked well. Was considering the Toro recycler at ********** which costs more. All in all I could not be more pleased.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Like a boss

I have always owned push mowers. This is my first self propelled mower. I used it on my 1/3rd of an acre yard today and what a treat. Assembled it put in gas and oil ...started first pull and each time I stopped to empty the bag that was full to the brim it started first pull. It has plenty of power on the hills and the my stride is sweet. I would definitely recommend this mower. So nice not having to push that old mower as the bag gets fuller up those hills anymore.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
