      Great Tractor
      Starts right up out of the packing crate. Runs smooth and lots of power The height adjustments are a lot easier to use and there are more to choose from. They have separated the forward and reverse. direction pedals. The only draw back I have found is the height adjustment lever is a little to long and catches your pants or leg when you get off that side of the tractor.

      Transmission GRINDING in Reverse
      One week old with less than 8 hours and transmission makes bad grinding noise in reverse. Also, it is SO difficult to make it goes into reverse. I must use my hand to "grab the forward pedal and pull it backward while the foot is pressing on the reverse pedal"

      Maybe ok on level ground, doesn't go up even small slopes

      Can't go up hills with a 1/2 loaded cart behind it, changed tires to more aggressive style, then added wheel weights. Drive belt failed 2 times with 24.8 hours on machine, had to order parts, they forgot to ship the parts. Multiple phone calls. After all that needed a new battery and it is not a year old. Got a new machine sitting in my garage today, good bye.

      Riding Lawn Mower

      I tried it and the cruise on it doesn't work. They are sending someone to look at it. I was told this happens a lot on this mower. If this is so why aren't they fixing this before someone buys it.

      This thing is a beast!

      I have had this mower for about 4 months now and I actually enjoy cutting grass now. I have almost an acre with some fairly uneven spots and many trees and other obstacles. This thing does it in half the time of my old mower. Love the tight turn. I debated between this or a ZTR and decided to stay with what I knew. To get a ZTR that does what this one does I would have spent twice as much. The mower was delivered with the mulch kit installed and is easy to remove and replace if you use the mower to blow off the driveway like me. The only thing that took some practice was getting used to the new controls and safety features but nothing has been a problem.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      exhaust stinks

      Bought this mower last year to replace wore out JD LT 133. I like the mower so far. I do not like that the exhaust and a lot of heat is in my face while using. The exhaust blows forward and the mower drives into the exhaust. I think this could me improved by directing the exhaust to the side away from the operator.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      BUYER BEWARE - Plastic transmission housing known to be Defective

      One compelling problem that ALL OWNERS of this model will eventually experience is the "grinding in reverse sound". I've had two Sears Repair Techs come out to diagnose issue this month. Both techs refused to make any repairs. Here's why - this problem is so common with this model that their protocol for repair, based on manufacturer's recommendation, dictate that they not repair or replace parts, unless tractor will not go into reverse or go forward. According to the Sear's repair tech, it's not worthwhile for Sears to repair/replace tranny, since grinding sound WILL return within 2 to 3 months or sooner. The plastic transmission housing is the culprit, however, manufacturer is unwilling to call it a defect. Repair tech also mentioned that it may be worth trying to return tractor for credit and spending $200-300 extra on tractor with metal transmission housing. We will see in the next day or two if Sear's customer service will do the right thing.

      Riding mover !!

      I bought the riding mover for my husband for Christmas !!! He didn't necessarily want one. However, I decided to buy him one anyway !! He was surprised & he loved it !!! As the riding mover is also a tractor - he put gas in it & road it that day !! The mover runs smooth - sounds good, you can also purchase a snow blade for the tractor - that will be his valentines present !!! very good mover I would highly recommend the mover to everyone !!! Craftsman are excellent products - purchased many in the past & will continue to purchase them in the future !!!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Second time out mower dropped the center blade and engine began making a loud whistling sound. Tech has been scheduled. Like the tight turns, the fast speed is too fast to mow. At times it doesn't seem to want to back up. I'm concerned.

      Great rider for the money

      Mows good and picks up EVERYTHING!!! I got the triple bagger with it and works super. Tractor is very fast compared to my Simplicity and Cu Cadet. That really helps on cutting time. I am not a fan of the reverse pedal but small thing. I would buy again. This isa Husqvarna in Sears paint color so all parts should be competitively priced and available!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
