I always found that the craftsman product line of riding mowers were wonderful. Bought this mower to replace my previous craftsman on the same size. My pervious craftsman lasted 11 years and I can tell this one will last just as long. A must buy!
I read the reviews of this product and saw a couple with a deck problem and thought well sure this was just a fluke. Well its not my deck will scalp the lawn. I purchased this unit in June and it is already REALLY hard to start. I am NOT happy with this machine!
Mower was delivered on July 18,exactly on time, already assembled, I did not start it right away, I added a larger in-line fuel filter, also a fuel shut off, I took the oil filter off to find a name brand oil filter with larger capacity,STP S4967,Fram 3600,Mobil 1 M1-103 all fit, they are all about a inch longer than the original filter, the added length still does not pose a problem with space, finally got around to starting it on the 20th,as soon as I hit the key it was running, not even a slight hesitation, I added the mulcher kit, and put it to work today (22nd),it does a perfect job, as even a cut of any mower as I have ever had,(push or rider) my yard is flat with a couple of hump's around one edge of the property, without the wheel's on the deck it WILL scalp, the engine is surprisingly quiet, and has plenty of power, I take extremely good care of my equipment, so I expect this mower will last a long time, the build quality is as good as a rider I bought 20 years ago from ****** (also built by MTD) overall I am very pleased with the purchase.
I had this tractor for ONLY 3 YEARS and the transmission/back end went south. It would have cost $400.00 for parts and $300.00 for labor. I can get a heard of goats to eat my grass for a LOT LESS! I should have known I was in for bad luck when the tire went flat after 20 minutes of cutting as soon as I used it. (Maybe I'll throw in some sheep, too!) AND...you can't control the cutting height of the grass. It cuts short, short, short... (I know! A couple of cows will work, too!) Thanks Sears! I've now become a farmer!

Great price & payment terms so I can't complain but clearly not as well made as older models. This model T1000 replaced an LT3000 I've used for many years. I probably should have bought a more expensive model. The tractor is good enough I suppose. The deck is the noisiest I've owned in a long time. The deck to the LT3000 has problems, most notably no leading wheels to glide over roots & humps. The new one (T1000) is fully suspended needing no wheels but when engaged it's so noisy & actually rumbles & vibrates. I have to take a break every hour or so. Not sure why they can't state the Horsepower rating, why it has to run all the time with the lights on, and why the Forward/Reverse control on the lest side & the deck height adjustment on the right side are placed where they catch my pant legs in bermuda shorts regardless which side I dismount the tractor. This is my 2nd tractor. Wouldn't have kept it if were my primary. It's too much a rough rider for my wife to consider using it.
I purchased this Sears Craftsman riding lawn mower because I know Sears will stand behind all their products. I purchased my first Sears Craftsman riding lawn mower in 1996 and used it many years with good results. It also had a snow blower attachment which I used many, many times in Wisconsin. I sold that tractor and liked the new models so decided to purchase one.
I bought this as a refurbished mower. When I got it home, I mowed one strip of grass to test it out. It worked fine. The next time we took it out, the blades would notwork; the belt that controls the blades had come offf. Evidently, the belt was stretched. Sears said they will send me a belt, but the technician cannot come for another 2 weeks.
