Got this mower in sept of 2012 new used it about 4 time that year, put it up for winter about half way through summer I had to have a pully replaced and at the end of summer I had to have one more pully replaced .what happened to Sears quality? I had a Murray I got new in 1999 and its still running and have only replaced 1 drive belt and 2 deck belts.

Well, it's about giving out and lots of things going bad! 14 1/2 years and we put a new engine 21/2 years ago. Engine still strong; but electrical going bad; won't start, guess it's time to send it to the scrapheap! Did a lot of work besides cutting grass i.e. (pulling sprayer, cart, dragging leveler and pulling a trailer; never any problems except the norm. Just change oil, lubricate it, clean the air filter and a little TLC! Just like your ole Lady and it keeps going! I hope the next one gives me the same service without the problems; just like the ole Lady!

Purchased this at an outlet store where it was reduced over $700 and I just love it. Used it the day I brought it home and can now cut up against a 12 inch pine tree and instantly as well as effortlessly increase/reduce the speed with the hydrostatic infinite speed transmission.
I have had 2 lawn tractors in last 28 years, this was to be my last. It was loud and vribration was bad. Last straw was mower disengauge hammered right hand, thought it was broken. Still not sure. Glad to hear some folks got good ones. My last one was 2cyl so guess im going to have to stay with 2 cyl engines without mower disenguage on top.
I purchased this mower about 11 months ago to mow my 1.5 acre lawn. It has it's pros and cons: Cons: The mower only has 3 height settings low, lower, and strip your lawn to dirt. Of the 6 settings on the adjustment handle, 1-3 are impossible to use. You'd literally have to pick the mower up and keep the wheels off the ground to get the mower deck into positions 1, 2, or 3. As it stands I keep the deck at the highest setting and take care when crossing changes in grade to avoid scalping the lawn. I have lowered the idler wheels on the mower deck to their lowest setting, and this helps. Although I'd rather cut the grass at least an inch taller in the hottest part of the summer...The mower needs taller tires or a redesigned suspension to make this possible. Two days ago I went out to cut my lawn, and found the mower deck dangling free on the right side. One of two brackets on the rear of the mower deck had snapped off. Upon closer inspection, I found that one of two welds holding that bracket on was defective. The weld was cold lapped onto the mower deck, without actually fusing into the steel of the deck. There was paint underneath the weld bead in a few spots. I'm a welder by trade, so I repaired the deck in about an hour, and returned to work. But for the average person, this would have taken the mower out of service for days or weeks and probably cost several hours and a $100 or so to repair. The quality of manufacturing is low in this product. go here for pictures of the repair. http://weldingweb.com/showthread.php?311871-Mower-deck-repair-only-11-months-old-yet-another-example-of-quality-manufacturing&p=3115881&posted=1#post I have a bagging attachment. Whoever designed the straps that retain the chute to the mower deck does not have normal hands. It is very difficult to hook and un-hook the rubber bungie straps that keep the bagging chute attached to the mower deck. It's just bad design work... The rear of the mower needs more weight. Backing up on wet grass or up a slope is chancy. I have noted that the mower works much more reliably when the bagger has a heavy load of grass in the bags. I'm considering a way to add some weight to the mower's rear end.... Sears assembled the mower, but lost my spare key and the fitting that allows the operator to connect a garden hose to the mower deck for washing the deck clean. When I returned to the store to ask for these parts, I was dismissed and told to buy them off the shelf. Poor customer service after the initial sale... Pros: The mower cuts grass. It starts easily and the engine runs smoothly. The mower seems stable on uneven terrain. The hydrostatic drive is pleasant to use. It seems relatively fuel efficient, although this is guesswork on my part. I fill the fuel tank every other cut; meaning I get about 3 hours of run time on 2 gallons of fuel. The mulching block for the mower deck works well and leaves the lawn clean looking if I don't feel like bagging.
