Bought this to replace one that was dying. As per other reviews, the oil plug is hard to get to. BUT, if you use a 1/2 inch wide straight slot screwdriver that's about 6 inches long, there's a slot on top of the plug you can insert the screwdriver and twist it off.Just don't twist too hard or you could break it. Yes, you will need a small long funnel, This thing was so easy to pull start, I thought it might actually be broken. I added oil, gas and then with one pull, it fired right off and ran so smooth. One lever for the rear wheels and one lever for the front wheels. Highly adjustable and very easy to do. This is a very light mower. It seems like it only weights 10 lbs. Very easy to push and easily maneuverable. My last mower was a 190cc and it would bog down on the same spots this one just cut thru without any noticeable change in speed. SO HAPPY I bought this. As you're doing now, I read all the reviews to see what everyone thought about it. You won't be sorry!
This mower provides good features for the price range. The quality of mine left something to be desired however. After setup (very simple) I set the adjusters to 3" and started to mow. The mower was scraping the ground and digging into the dirt. It appears the adjuster is not manufactured properly. At most I can only get about 3" of clearance for the highest setting (marked a 6" on the housing). Don't buy this unit if you like to cut your lawn long or need to cut very long grass.
We needed a mower that was lightweight, and had multiple capabilities (mulching and bagging), with height adjustable wheels. Looked at a few places, then a friend said they bought a beautiful mower at Sears, so I checked it out. Logged online, liked this one, went to the store to put hands and eyes on it, bought it. 24 hrs later we took it out of the box, adjusted the handles up, put some gas in it, topped it off with oil that was provided, hooked up the bag with dust blocking technology (HUGE selling point), and away we went. An hour and a half later we had one of the most beautiful lawns in the neighborhood, all for just $200.63 (your price may be different based on tax rate in your area)! LOVE the thing, easy to set up, use, and the dust-blocking technology of the bag works - I didn't sneeze once (quite a feat)! SO glad we checked out Sears.
Plowed right through the tall stuff and cut super well. No exposed springs to tangle in overgrowth like the last mower. Started 1st pull. Pushed through the tall stuff easily. Loving me some Craftsman!

My dad bought this mower for me yesterday upon opening and removing it from the box we found that the oil fill was in a weird place in fact we thought the assembly line forgot to put a piece on so we took it back to sears to my disappointment we found it was correct and to remove the PLASTIC dipstick you need a flat head screwdriver and to put oil in it you would need a funnel. Luckily we did not put gas in it so we switched it for a better mower craftsman really disappointed me on this one
The only complaint I have about this mower is the location of the oil. I have small hands and still had trouble getting to the dip stick and filling the oil is no easy thing with or without a funnel.
Chevy Chase, MD
I mowed the lawn 4 times with this mower - 2 of the 4 times, the retractable rope which starts the engine pulled right out and wouldn't retract back into the machine. This happened very shortly afer the 30 day return was up. I am not pleased.
