I purchased this mower because I no longer can walk behind a regular mower.
All I do now is direct and ride. It is a good smooth ride and it takes care of all I need to do to my yard. I also purchased the attachment bag to collect all the cuttings and now all I have to do is fill up the trash bags and let them be picked up at the curve on trash day. I do not have to rake like before! I am now able to take care of my own yard, the way I want it, and save my energy, do not have to work as hard, and my neighbors always notice which yards are kept up. I feel good about the how the grass looks and it also enriches the all over looks of the property. Thanks to Craftsman and the products they offer to the customers. I also took advantage of buying while on a special sale.

tractor needs work
We purchased this product for our lake house. In the first hour the deck dropped down due to a cable issue. Got that fixed and noticed the motor started to smoke. I have now mowed three times since it started and it is getting harder to start.

Easy Start Riding Mower

The Craftsman 42" Step Through Frame Riding Mower adjusts and starts easy. The smaller cutting surface works great in a larger yard, but is not too wide to get around obstacles. The turning radius is excellent for the size machine. It makes quick work of a 100' x 200' yard. The only thing that I need now is the mulching kit, because I recycle my clippings.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfect Machine for us

Never thought I would need a riding mower, bad hips forced this purchase and am I totally glad I have it. What took 1 1/2 hours to do, I now do in 20 min. and it fits even the tightest spots in my yard. Cuts great. What a leg and time saver!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Warning Piece of Junk DON'T BUY ONE

I purchased this Mower last year Feb 2013. After getting to use the mower just a few times the summer of 2013 the engine went out in it. Sears finally replaced it with a new Mower in Sept 2013. This year 2014 again the engine went out again. This is my Second mower with the 420cc engine. Please Don't waste your money... Engine on this PRODUCT IT IS A PIECE OF JUNK.... Very unhappy Customer

Great Riding Lawn Mower!

This lawn mower appears to be a great riding lawn mower! It handles well and has adjustable blades so that we can determine how closely we want to cut our lawn. We also purchased the mulcher. That will make things so much more convenient during the fall season.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great deal for a good tractor!

Bought this on August 1st, 2014...overall a great deal. Got a dump cart for hauling debris and shrubs from the yard, works together flawlessly. Cuts my one acre yard grass in a little over two hours, much faster than pushing the old lawn mower around. Very good deal for the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfect for me

This is the first tractor I've had. Simple to operate. Starts every time. No problems so far and I've had it a couple of months. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the length of time I've had it. Wish it had come with a mulching blade

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The engine just will not start!

I have owned both Craftsman tractors with both Briggs and Kohler that have given me very good service. We bought this one for our summer home and must say I really think sears should reconsider putting their name on it. The first thing was the deck, then it smoked, and now it won't start. I am not happy and will do my research before making another purchase decision and it won't be Craftsman

good buy for first riding lawn mower

It is a good mower for the price. It wasn't my first choice of riding mowers, but it does the job. The mulch kit should be a standard item, an extra cost. Very noisy and uncomfortable ride...again the price is what "sold me" on the product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
