The Briggs & Stratton Platinum engine starts easily and has plenty of power. The rear wheel drive is great for climbing up hills and the large rear wheels keep the mower from getting bogged down in small ruts. The handle design is much better than my last mower (also a Craftsman). After a while, the joint between the two handle sections on my old mower wore out and I had to reinforce it with metal hose clamps. But to be fair, I have been using that old Craftsman mower for the last 20 years. So, I cannot really complain. It still usually starts with one pull. I'm only replacing it because after all this time, the steel deck is rusting through. I am expecting great things from this mower. We'll see.
This mower was as advertised. It was easy to set up and make ready to use. An easy pull on the starter cord and it cranked immediately. I used it to mulch leaves and it did an excellent job. I am sure that when the grass begins to grow again it will also cut the grass as well. I also like the easy height adjustment and the fact the rear wheels are larger than the front wheels, which makes for an easier pushing motion.
This is one of the best mowers Sears makes. Powerful engine that cuts through any height of grass. It's easy to start and the drive system works great. I would highly recommend this product.
The rear bagger is easily removed to empty leaves and grass clippings. The engine is very powerful. The Rear Wheel Drive Self-Propelled Drive system is a feature that is sure to save mowing effort, particularly on those very hot days. The engine starts first time every time, and it has really strong power to get through tough jobs for mowing. The large rear wheels enable the operator to maneuver the machine well for trimming around obstacles, and it is even a beauty for the eye to behold. It could use some padding for gripping the handle for more comfort in handling, but overall it is a very sturdy well made walk behind lawn mower that I expect to give me many years of service.
I purchased the mower on black friday online but all sold out at reduce sale price. So, I when to store and located the floor model and purchased the mower for hundreds less than full price. Also, the sale staff were great. As for the mower it was already fully assembled and just had to screw in to handle bolts. Got it home and gas it up and the mower started on first pull. Don't understand the problems with the people adding the one rating because I cut my grass the next day and everything worked great with no problems. The mower has more power than the front wheel drive I purchased from Sear about 8 years ago and I hope the people with the one rating have someone assemble the mower before using because everyone don't understand the assemble process. Plus the instructions help with any issues with lowering the handle and how to position the screws.
The reviewer indicated they received a sample of this product.
I have owned many lawnmowers and only had to do general "maintenance". This mower broke in the first season. The drive broke first. Early the next season the mower would not start. Took to independent engine mechanic and could not fix. After purchasing a warranty from Sears they replaced the short block. Brought it home and the same thing happened. Poor design - do not buy, very frustrating mower.

We have over 1/2 acre of land and we have a few slops but mostly level and it does an outstanding in mulching the lawn. Even my wife like using it. We purchased directly at the local Sear store and the salesperson was outstanding and very knowledgeable about this product. We purchased it when it was on sale and we received Sears points for the purchase. It replaced a name brand mower that we purchased from the big box store just a two years ago because the store would not stand behind the warranty. Very quit running and hopefully it will last several years.
So powerful, much better than the front wheel drive! Easy to use the grass catcher. We had a Craftsman Front wheel drive before, and this one has it beat hands down! So powerful, if you have a lever all the way down, you would be running behind it! No kidding! Best mower ever!!!

I had a Sears more before, only problem it was a front wheel drive. I have sloped side yards and had to help push it up hill. This rear wheel drive model is wonderful! Pulls me up the hill! Starts on the first pull.
