Good Mower so far
Since this is a new Mower and there aren't many reviews yet, I figured I'd take the time to write a real review on it for people thinking about purchasing. Bought this mower last week and have only mowed my yard once with it so far. I will update this review if the mower gives me any reliability/durability issues. These are my initial impressions: PROS 1. Easy to assemble out of the box. 2. Comes with an extra blade, which I didn't expect. 3. Is about half as loud as my old mower, which had a Honda engine. 4. After adding oil and fuel, mower started up on the very first pull! Never had that happen before! no need to prime or mess with a choke either. Have cold started it a few times and always starts on the first pull and pull is easier than I am used to. 5. Good power for a 175cc engine. 6. Mulcher cuts nicely and mulches the grass into very fine particles. 7. B&S engine says MADE IN USA if that's important to you. CONS 1. Deck is stamped sheet metal and seems a bit flimsy. Wish they used a slightly thicker gauge sheet metal, even though it would add weight. OR...I would have been willing to pay extra for a cast alloy deck if it were available. 2. Lots of plastic parts. Experience has shown me that plastic parts will sometimes outlast metal, but it remains to be seen how durable all the plastic on this mower is. 3. Deck washer hook-up only works okay and you still need to tip up the deck and shoot it out from below if you want to get the bottom of the deck really clean. 4. Handle is pretty uncomfortable. I will probably wrap it with some padding, but Craftsman should have designed it a little thicker for comfort or added some foam padding. 5. Paint quality seems good on top of deck, but bottom of deck is only about half sprayed. I will probably spray the bottom myself to keep the rust away a little longer. All in all, for price I got this mower for (on sale), it seems like a great value and so far seems like the best mower I've ever owned (my 5th mower so far and the first Craftsman mower) My Dad's Toro Super Recycler is better, but also costs twice as much, so it doesn't seem like a fair comparison. So far I like it a lot better than my old mower that it's replacing, which was a Husqvarna 7021p with a Honda engine, and it only cost me about $40 more than the Husqvarna did.

Quiet Motor but....
Bought after looking at ALL of the options out there available. Liked the idea of a quieter engine. Was excited to try it out this morning. Ran quieter like advertised. And has power to cut through my winter rye. Front drive was nice. My issues are the following. Was pretty hard to pull the starter. Several times it didnt even budge. Grass catcher does not hold a lot. Seems to be at the wrong angle and all of the grass bunches up at the bottom of the door. Had to scoop a hand full each time. Front wheels did not disengage after letting go of the drive handle. Had to drag is in reverse. Going to try it again next weekend. If things dont get any better, going to take it back and try again.... Still a Craftsman fan though.....

Plastic part troubles a great engine.

I just bought my first house, this is my first lawnmower, so I was surprised when midway through mowing my lawn for the first time I let it turn off and couldn't get it started again. I checked everything and was on the verge of bringing it back when my dad took a look at it for me and found that the stop switch wire wasn't working. The plastic part holding the throttle wires in tension had broken free. I fixed it with a $2 stainless steel bolt rather than take it to Sears where they would no doubt take weeks to replace the wire assembly with a new piece of plastic. I bought a Craftsman mower because the name is all over my Dad's tools, but I regret not buying from a local dealer something a bit better. All that said, it actually works quite well now that it does, the Briggs and Stratton quiet OHV is indeed quiet and it mulches very well.

Craftsman Mower

I purchased this for my husband for his Birthday. He loves it! It's very quite and easy to start. It did smoke a lot when we first started it but I've seen a lot of other reviews saying that was completely normal and only did it the first time and for about 10 minutes or so. Other then that it's been great!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Another Craftsman Winner!

The salesman explained how easy it was to assemble.Just remove from the shipping box, open the handle and tighten the round nuts. Make sure you ad the full quart of oil provided, fill the gas tank, and you are ready to go. Well, how many times does that work!. To my surprise, I did exactly as he indicated, then pulled on the cord to start the engine, and it started the first time. I have a new lawn which is bumpy in some spots.With the front drive the mower moved with ease over my entire lawn. Very quiet as the salesman pointed out. I could not be more pleased with this Craftsman product. Thanks!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A handle instead of a bar for self-propelle, Hurts your hand.

Great mower and it is quieter

I've used this for a couple of months now and I have to say it is the best mulching mower I have owned. I have most recently owned a $800 mower and the Craftman mulches significantly better. I can hear my neighbors mower over this one while I am mowing. Remember, it is still going to make some noise but I would say it is actually more quiet than a normal mower. I have no problems with the height, handles or anything with it. It always starts on the first pull. I have not tried to use the bag at all since I only mulch, it is much better for the lawn. I definitely recommend this mower.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
