      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.

      Engine is a little small and low powered. Great High Rear Wheels.

      I plan to use this lawn mower as a spare unit, or for a quick light clean-up around the edges and mulch beds. The 140 cc engine is a little small and under powered for use a primary lawn mower. Do not expect it to cut down a long shaggy yard. The high rear wheels make it an excellent choice to steer around curving mulch beds, trees, and along the perimeter of my yard features. The optional rear bag is good for these quick clean up trimming events, and is easy to remove to empty or set aside for use without the bag being attached. I will change the blade to a mulcher blade for my use, the factory blade does not circulate the clippings under the mower to chop them up fine enough to leave on the yard. The factory blade is totally fine, if you are going to always use the rear bag with the mower.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      New Briggs & Stratton Lawn Mower

      We got a pretty good deal on a 5hp mower and have already used it twice, even though it's still winter. We have had pretty good luck with these mowers lasting more than five years, so have continued to purchase them from Sears. That's what it's all about, reliability and being able to find what you want and purchase it immediately.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      21" Rear Bag Push Lawn Mower

      It does everything I was wanting a lawn mower to do. It has the big wheels on the back which makes it easier to push. I love the grass bag catcher. I found this lawn mower on line thru Kmart and Sears web site. The sales clerk was able to get it at price that I found on line which was 20.00 cheaper than the in store price, which was awesome! It is a Craft man lawn mower, so I expect it to last a long time. I would recommend this lawn mower to anyone that has a uneven yard. We have 3 levels which has a retaining walls between the levels. With this lawn mower we can mower all 3 levels easily.

      Easy starting and easy to use.

      This well built medium sized gas mower is easy to start and use. It is lightweight enough to be easy to push and the rear bag is easy to take off and put on. At this price point I feel it is a good value for small lawns and light duty applications.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Little maching

      Sold my riding mower when I bought the new house as the yard was a lot smaller and I spent more time backing up to turn than mowing. This machine worked great right out of the box. Have used it all summer with the bag attached and it starts and cuts great. The only issue I have had with it was when I tried to mow under my deck and the top of the mower got caught and pushed the plastic down on the pull rope and burned through the rope. That was my fault and after fixing the pull rope it started fine.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Bought this mower at the beginning of summer. It wasn't too difficult to assemble. Good solid mower that pushes pretty smooth and gets the job done well.

      Don't buy

      This lawn mower is not a good investment. We are on our second one in two years. First one wouldn't start, so they replaced, we only used it twice. The second one made it just over a year, broken... Craftsman in General seems to not be a good brand.

      Had to return

      On the 1st use the lawn mower stalled and when tried to restart the cord wouldn't detract. Just hung. Had to return it today. Will try a different brand and/or model.
