Product Description

420cc 30" 6-Speed Rider Mower Makes Lawns Beautiful Easily and Quickly

A beautiful lawn requires a lot of work, but this Craftsman 420cc 30" 6-speed rider mower takes a lot of that work onto its own 14-gauge welded steel frame. Cut your lawn at speeds reaching up to five miles per hour, and have the ability to change speeds effortlessly with the equipped Shift On the Go manual transmission. Enjoy a tight 18-inch turning radius on Turf Saver tires that are built to be gentle on your grass.

Five different cutting heights ensure that you get exactly the look you want from the 420cc 30" 6-speed rider mower. Its compact size makes it ideal for smaller yards or tight spaces, while the ease of handling makes outdoor work short and simple. Carry up to 1.3 gallons of gasoline at any time, and check your levels with a glance through the sight glass.

  • An 18 in. turning radius on the Craftsman 6-speed small yard rider provides maneuverability and stability
  • Engine features full pressure lubrication and spin-on oil filter to promote longer life

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 :-(

My own mower

The mower is great. I had purchased one second hand about 7 years ago and that one was perfect for my size yard. I had moved so I sold the mower to my tenant. Now I am back living in my house and I purchased the exact same mower as I had before. I think it is a great mower, very reliable and the perfect size for my yard. I love it. It does a great job and with the rear engine, I am able to cut close on fence lines and around trees. I am a female and I think it is perfect for a female.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

My Review

I have had nothing but trouble since my purchase of this mower in 2012. My mower will not continue to run more than app. 20 minutes at a time. The carburetor was replaced August of 13. It then worked fine for about 8 months' but now the mower is doing the same as it did before. Each time I've called for service (on the service maintenance plan) it is nearly always a 2 week waiting period and have also had to reschedule twice making a bigger delay.

new mower a big help

Having developed some health problems, I could no longer walk behind my self-propelled walk-behind mower. This was an ideal solution, since it is small enough for a small yard, but workable for someone who is physically limited.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

R1000 - Rear Engine Riding Mower

I must say, this little riding mower is a great! little runner. I have used it twice already and it's taken me roughly 35 minutes to cut my backyard. When using my EZ-walk lawnmower, it would take me almost an 1 1/2 hours.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
