This mower was purchased as a gift for my mother in law. She was extremely happy. Looking forward to doing yard work again. I would have liked the side pieces, that attach to hood, to be sturdier though.
I purchased this Craftsman mower expecting it to be good and I was right. It is a very good mower. It cuts perfectly and it does it fast. My previous mower could not cut the grass short because it would bog down a bit. This mower does it and doesn't break a sweat! I also purchased the mulching attachment. I have had this on my other Craftsman mowers but this one makes mulching even thick leaves a breeze! I mulched a neighbors leaves that had accumulated for a month and it took care of them easily. This is the first Automatic transmission I have had and I love it! I did have to learn that I could not mow in reverse. At first that was a negative for me but now it is not a problem. From some other reviews I was worried it would have a lot of excessive vibration, but gladly it is not a problem. I have a rather "bumpy" lawn and I did not need any more vibrations! I want to mention the delivery men. I was extremely impressed with them. When I opened my garage door they had it all ready. They took 10-15 minutes pointing out pretty much everything I needed to know about the mower. I asked about the mulching attachment and they had already installed the blades and cover. Awesome! This more than made up for the 2-day delay in receiving the mower! If you are considering this mower I say go for it! I am very happy with mine. It is well worth it.
Husqvarna makes this mower for Sears. They may want to reconsider the single cylinder 19 hp engine as it can't handle the load of the 46" deck. The 1/2 inch mower belt flops even as tight as it will adjust and that vibrates the whole machine, a 5/8 inch belt may solve this problem. The first thing I did was heat the mower lift handle and bend it down so it did not catch on my clothing on getting on and off the machine. Fair rating was fair I think.

It seems to mow well even at full speed. I like the turn radius and the fact that you can mow in reverse. A downside for me would be that it seems to use a lot of fuel, but this is the first riding mower I have owned.

We have been running this unit all summer with never a problem. The only thing I think is missing from this model that was on my old one is their is no easy to read/ see gas gage on it. The variable speed transmission is Great!
