Great Product
This mower is not good for a "Mechanically Mentally Challenged" people. Most people who buy it and don't like it are most likely attempting to have it do more that its design limits. Answer: buy a bigger mower. But for a half acre or less its great. The only thing I didn't like about it was the "pain in the backside" reverse engine cutoff switch. This cuts the engine if you put it in reverse with the blade engaged. But a simple examine of the F/N/R shift rod showed me how it worked and an easy non-evasive solution to this problem - a piece of 3/8 in. plastic tubing three inches long placed over the shift rod to insulate it from touching the engine cutoff contact solved this problem. Once I engineered this, I then bought the mower. The transmission and clutch is a bit touchy until the mower gets broken-in a bit. But after a half of a season it runs very smooth. The mulcher (extra purchase) feature is great too.

Not Good
Does a good job cutting, but the motor was cutting out. Service man came out, ordered a carburetor. Hasn't installed yet, but it ran good enough so I was using it, something happened and now can't even get the motor to turn over. Taking it back to Sears, if they will give me a new one I will try it, but if not want my money back :-(

Riding Lawnmower

Great ride, quiet, and easy to handle. Second craftsman rider and do miss the shift on the fly feature that the old one had. But this one works just fine once I get used to shifting.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Hard to shift

This mower would be ok if the Forward, neutral and reverse gears wasn't between your legs. It has a very short shift lever which makes it awkard to locate and move. This could be solved with a longer shift lever and/or moving it to right or left of mower. This mower was expensive and this problem needs to be addressed because it makes it a little unsafe wrestling with the gears.

This mower has proven to be an excellent purchase for our yard. It is the perfect size to fit through our fence gate in the back yard and has enough power to go up hills and has an amazing turning radius.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
