      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.

      Junk

      I bought this lawn mower last year and have used it a handful of times. It has always been stored in a garage. Went to start it today, no dice. The engine will not turn over, I do not think it is getting a spark. To add insult to injury, it is one week out of warranty.

      Tough as Concrete

      On my first cut I hit a piece of concrete well hidden in my overgrown lawn. No problem for this simple but beautiful piece of machinery. Barely a scratch on the blade. I really like how Sears included oil and fuel stabilizer in my box as well.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Met My Needs

      Looked for a good plain mower not complicated with this and that. Not a lot out the there that are not self propelled, automatic choke, or external hose set up. Found this, bought it and mowed the lawn with it. Time will tell if is any good.

      GOOD FOR PRICE

      The mower works good thus far (only one use) However putting it together was annoying for the following reasons. The instructions are very dark and hard to read. The Oil cap is in an odd spot you have to get a flat head screwdriver to take it off. Putting the bag on the mower was not easy. The instructions do not give a good photo to follow. I still am iffy if it is on correctly.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Lawnmower

      This lawn mower is lawnmowertastic. It mows the lawn like a lawn mover should mow the lawn. It not only mows the lawn, but it mows the lawn well.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      140cc Briggs & Stratton 21 rear bag push mower

      This was an excellent purchase for the price of what I paid. I would highly recommend this lawnmower. It is very quiet and smooth, the height adjustments are easy to adjust also lightweight easy to manuever.

      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.
