      This Craftsman Mower Moves Fast

      Agile and quick, this Craftsman mower delivers the balance of a portable 140cc engine with the economy of single speed drive, to get the grass cut wherever you need it done. A solid machine, it features rugged steel construction and the dependable firing of the MRS spark plug for a long, hassle-free service life. To make starting easy, this lawn mower even features the Smooth Start™ system, a specially designed recoil mechanism that multiples your force during pull starts, so even when there’s a chill in the air, it’s up and running in no time at all. A solid mower that’s agile enough for small yards, while packing the power to take on vast fields, give this Craftsman a pull, and get that lawn in shape.

      • Deck design extends cutting area beyond wheels for more precise trimming and edging
      • Dual-point deck height adjusters with 6 positions
      • Flexible cutting heights ranging from 1.25 to 3.75 in. for any lawn or grass type
      • EZ Empty rear bagger with Dust Blocker™ (1.9 Bu) reduces the amount of dust while allowing the bag to completely fill with clippings

      Easy mowing and hot starts for older folks
      I'm a 60 year old woman, and I love to work in the yard. Today I bought this model, and now my lawn looks beautiful. I need frequent breaks, and this mower does great on hot starts. Out of the box, the mower is set on a 2 inch cutting height. Immediately change that height to 3 inches, and you will do fine with your mowing. It's a a great value for the price!

      Piece of sears ****! Craftsman? No, CRAPS-MAN!
      Bought this mower about 2-3 months ago. Started on 1 pull once, 2 pulls twice, now won't start AT ALL!! Even with starter fluid, this low-budget piece of chinese-made **** won't start. I must have been an IDIOT to think that sears would sell actual GOOD lawnmowers. I intend to tell everyone I know what a piece of total **** this craftsman mower is. Craftsman, HAH! Craps-man, more likely.

      Really Bad Mower

      This has got to be the WORST experience I have ever had with a lawn mower! I bought this mower in late summer 2013 and used it a couple of times and thought it was great. Last summer I could not keep it running so took it in for work under the warranty. After getting it back from the shop I got it to start 2 times, now it will not even start! Back to the shop AGAIN before the warranty runs out. I am NOT pleased with this purchase!

      GREAT MOWER!

      I've had this mower for over a year now and it has been one of the best mowers I've ever owned. It starts very easily and the self propulsion works well. I hope to own it for many years to come!

      good

      I have had this a year now and wanted to wait to review it until I used it for a while. I like most everything about it excet it can be hard to start sometimes. I am short 5'2 so sometimes I have a hard time pulling it started on the first try. If I cnt get it after a few times I have to leave it sit before trying again. Not a big deal but annoying. The biggest annoying thing is once you stop it it takes a while for it to start back up. Im not sure if it gets too hot or what the issue is. Here is a perfect example. I will be mowing and my neighbor walks up to talk and I turn it off to talk. After 10 min or so of talking I go back to mowing and it will not start. Same thing happens when I turn it off to move sticks/toys in the yard I found or when I stop it to open the gate to go to the front yard. Other than those issues it works great and so far so good.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great front wheel Mower

      I purchased it last year and used all year long. It is very efficient Mower. I have a 5000 sqft yard but it is on hill. this front wheel mower makes it very easy to mow the lawn. Small gas tank but lasts few weeks. Can be used with & without bag. Easy to store & start. Takes 3 stokes max.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftman 21" Mower

      Poor design on the grass discharge bagging. Does not discharge most of the cut grass.

      This is a good mower for mowing around flower beds and fixed objects.

      It is light weight and easy to maneuver, but has front wheel drive to assist in mowing uphill.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
