Product Description

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.

  • Smooth Start™ uses recoil for faster, easier starting with less effort
  • Most Reliable Starting (MRS) spark plug fires fast
  • Single speed propelled front wheel drive means more control and less fatigue
  • Precision Plus™ delivers accurate, even cutting with a durable blade
  • 21 in. 3-in-1 deck lets’ you choose between bagging, mulching and side discharge
  • 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
  • 8 in. front and 8 in. rear wheels increase maneuverability
  • Unit comes fully assembled
  • Warranty: 2 years
  • Available in 50 states
  • Engine size rated by engine manufacturer

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!

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.

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.

Light Duty

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.

Overall
easy to use

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Used 3 times and

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.
