I got this lawnmower to replace a battery operated mower. This mower is much quieter than any gas operated mowers I have used in the past, which was one of the features I was looking for. The large wheels in the back make it easy to maneuver around trees and flower beds, which is a great help with a small yard like mine. The grass catcher has only been about a quarter full when I finish mowing, so that might give you a sense of how small an area I have to cut. Overall I think I will be very happy with this for a long time. My last Craftsman mower lasted over 20 years until I had to replace it, and I expect the same from this one.
Cuts great, easy to handle, disappointed in way upper handle attaches to lower. Very loose fit, needs tightened each use.
Prior to purchasing this mower last season (2014) I owned a Honda Harmony mower purchased in 1993 - it ran reliably and mulched well for over 20 years! But it was slowing down and always struggled with thick or wet grass, stalling frequently. So time for new mower, I decided to give a Craftsman a chance - and now regret the purchase... Pros: On the plus side, this mower engine is powerful and it never stalled. But the plus ends here. Cons: 1. The most critical is it does not mulch or mow grass very well! It leaves swaths of uncut grass throughout the mowing pattern and frequently required 2 passes - no matter how thick or how slow I mulched. 2. The front wheel drive slipped frequently and was less manageable than previous rear wheel drive. 3. The handle was cheap - twisting and rattling already. 4. It was no quieter than my 20 year old Honda - the Quiet Power is clearly a marketing gimmick. Maybe its quieter than a standard Briggs & Stratton but my benchmark is any mower. 5. And finally, the deal breaker, while mowing this season, on the 3rd mowing, the bolt holding the blade on broke in half dropping the blade out the back of the mower while my son was mowing! With existing negatives already leading up to the blade incident, I went out immediately and bought a new Honda HRX mower. With both mowers side by side, I now regret the purchase in the first place. So I will replace the bolt, put it back together and sell it or donate it to Goodwill. No More Craftsman Mowers for Me...

Bought the mower basically because it is supposed to be quiet. It may be a little, but only by maybe a decibel or two. Of course, that's my opinion and I had no sound meter to justify what I'm claiming, other than what I hear. Other than that, the mower cuts well, and starts up easily. The only problem I have found, and it doesn't happen all of the time, but sometimes when I pull the mower backwards, the front wheels stick and they drag. It's almost like they are locked in place. Anyway, I'd say it's three stars out of five. Just wish it was more quiet.
Very quiet, easy start, all around work horse.
Great mower on sale and it is much more quiet than normal mowers.
Preparing this mower for it's first use I noticed the throttle and drive cables rubbed against the rear wheel and thought this is a poor design. About four rows into it's very first mow the engine shut down - turns out the plastic housing that holds the throttle and drive cables broke free from the handle - the small plastic (cheap) fastener broke off making the mower useless! Now I have a mower full of gas and oil and trying to get to Sears (via phone or web) for assistance has been a nightmare. Yes, it was quiet but not as quiet as I saw in other reviews - it's still a lawn mower! Not sure how I'm getting this back to the store yet or how much more time I'll waste but it's going back. By he way, the Shop Your Way easy curb side pickup also failed (due to ":technical difficulties") on a rainy day. I had to park and go inside and help get the mower into my car. All around bad experience.
I've used Craftsman mowers for the past 20+ years. This is my 3rd mower and as you might guess, things have changed since my last purchase. I purchased my mower in the middle of the summer (2014) and as of this writing, used it a number of times to finish the summer and mulch leaves in the fall. I have a steep embankment in my front yard so the self-propelled feature is a life saver. The incline is so steep (about 60 degrees) that I cannot mow 'across' but have to go directly up or down the embankment. I am able to engage the self-propelled mechanism and the mower pulls up the embankment easiy. I especially like the trigger-like handle to engage the wheels. It is a variable speed trigger which works perfectly when maneuvering around trees and shrubs. If your yard is the size that you'd use a push mower instead of a riding mower, this mower has plenty of power to tackle any size yard. The mower does not have a primer pump (button), so I was not surprised to have to pull twice on occasion to start the mower after a week of storage. However, anytime I have to stop for a few minutes while mowing, she starts up with only one pull, even a half pull. Living in the midwest I waited until almost all the leaves had fallen (December) to mulch. I lowered the blade level a notch or two and was very satisfied with the results. My wife had raked some of the yard into piles and I plowed right in and the piles almost disappeared. I came back over the mulched area with my bag attached and 'vacuumed' up a considerable amount which was then recycled. In areas where we had not raked, the mower did a fantastic job mulching. Switching from mulching mode to bagging mode is very easy. The way the bag fits insures that the yard waste will be blown into the bag. I was impress with the minimal amount of dust when mulching my leaves. With this mower comes a number of safety features. Everything appears to be well designed to not only provide safety, but maintain effeciency. (I.e. the safety features don't get in your way!) The mower is marketed as a 'quiet' mower and it does seem to be quieter than my previous one. However, it is still a mower and it makes noise. So, the neighbors still know you're out there mowing. Overall, I am quite pleased with this mower and would highly recommend it.
Very please with the new craftman mower. Easy to start. Quiet and fuel efficient. Lighter than my previous model. Started first pull straight out of the box. Came with a spare blade and oil.
