User friendly and light weight. As a women I find it hard to find a mower that works well without muscle. Well made, and overall a good purchase. I am satisfied.
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.
I purchased the mower in April 2013 and the pull start line had already frayed by June using about every 10 days. The mower is OK for light duty, but any thick grass or moderately tall grass is tough for this mower. Also, when you bag the grass, the bag only fills halfway before it starts dumping back into the lawn like it is full.

simple, light, and uncomplicated machine.. I have seen reviews where people complained about plastic parts and the small engine, but what I have found is it makes machine lighter and easier to use... (it is actually 25 lbs lighter than some other mowers I looked at) I am suffering from lower back problems and have found this easier on my back than any other I have used. the engine has all the power anyone needs unless you are mowing forests instead of lawns. also the handle is higher than my old toro so I bend less. all I ask now many years of trouble free service..time will tell.
Used the mower 3 times. From the first time we used it, it shook a lot. Thought it was normal. Everything was tight and attached. 2nd time, a bolt came off. 3rd time the same bolt came off and the shaking got worse. Took it to have it looked at/repaired (since it was past 30 days) and was told a part was broke and was not covered. It would cost me $500 to repair it. It was a $200 mower. Out $200 and still need a mower.
Has plenty of power mows good You have to walk to fast to keep up with the mower when mowing so the wheels keep spinning which causes wheels to fast other than that problem I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS MOWER to any one & would buy this one again
