      Started on very fist pull
      My last Craftsman mower lasted for years until I bent the shaft. I decided to just get a new one rather than pay a lot of money to get an old mower working again. This new mower was easy to "assemble" out of the box - just unscrew, pull handles all the way out and screw again. Adding oil was a bit annoying - awkward location for filler. Use a funnel. But, honestly, how often do people actually change the oil in a mower. :-) I filled up the gas tank, then gave it one relatively gentle pull after priming. It started right up and chopped up some overgrown stuff leaving no visible debris.

      Think before buying
      This product is not "Senior user-friendly". A major disadvantage is the placement of the oil fill tube. It is located behind the muffler under the blower housing, in the engine block and above the mower deck. The oil full tube cap and dipstick are difficult to remove with very limited "finger" space. I would not recommend this mower for seniors and/or others who have problems stooping/bending over.

      Returned twice-won't start

      -I had great expectations with this model. I've used Craftsman brand and Briggs and Stratton engines before. Nevertheless, I had to return this product TWICE now. The first time I can see perhaps a manufacturer's defect, but it would not start with the exchanged mower. I sprayed some carb cleaner in the air intake and it fired right up (for a second) to prove to myself it wasn't a spark plug issue. I think there is a problem with the primer not pumping fuel or a defective gasket personally (fresh fuel was used). -Two more issues: The oil is VERY inconveniently located with an overhang above it so you have to use a funnel or have a very steady hand pouring slowly. Plus to take the cover off, you need a flathead screwdriver. -Which brings the next downer: EVERYTHING IS PLASTIC. Everything seems fragile including the gas reservoir and cover for oil. Not at all what I expect from a man's man brand like Craftsman.

      Mower Refuses to Start

      This lawnmower simply will not start. I have had it serviced twice. First time, it didn't start the day after service. The second time, it would not start at all. I have owned this mower for two years and it has only started 3 times. I've paid the neighborhood kids enough the past two seasons to buy two new mowers. But what am I to do with this 65-pound paperweight? Never again will I buy anything with the Briggs and Stratton label on it. I only had to replace my previously working Craftsman mower because my Wife ran over a Texas Yucca bush; bent the shaft. Don't waste your money or time on this mower.

      Failed to start in Spring after storage through winter

      This mower started up right away after assembly, but once stowed away for the winter, it will not start back up in Spring. Happens two spring seasons in a row.

      The worst lawn mower I ever had

      My family has used Craftsman for years. I bought this lawnmower in late 2012 and only used it about five times. Took it in for repair because if would not start. I paid the Sears store in Waxahachie $50 to look at it. They cleaned out the carburetor and I got one more use. I then threw it away. Very disappointing.

      STARTED ON FIRST PULL

      MY NEW LAWN MOWER WAS REASONABLY PRICED. IT HAS LOTS OF VERY GOOD TIME SAVING FEATURES. IT IS VERY EASY TO START AND RUNS VERY SMOOTHLY. I PURCHASED THIS LAWN MOWER FOR MY DAUGHTER. I AM SURE THAT SHE WILL ENJOY MOWING HER LAWN WITH IT.

      Great mower

      Had a Craftsman for years and the undercarriage is wearing out. Had to replace with a new Craftsman. Wouldn't own anything else.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
