Looks Good
Purchased online, Delivered on time in a week. Great looking mower. Started right up , Havent mowed with it yet but sure looks like it will do what I want. My last Craftsman mower lased 12 years and was still going strong when I got rid of it. This thing is a lot more tractor than the little or smaller models. Its not a $12,000 ********** so don't expect that. I was able to get this thing for 2500 including tax and delivery with on line discounts and a little chatting with the sales rep on line!! Saftey switches are kind of annoying and are easily disabled if you don't have small children or neighbors that might run off with it. ( I would never do this, Just saying ) Also the complete start thing works good , just read the instructions.

Well I have had this tractor for less than one month. It was delivered to me to replace one under warranty that the entire front axle fell out of. That one had a normal key type ignition system and not this "complete start" garbage. I managed to get it to start ONCE the day they delivered it. After trying for over a week a tech finally came today and he could not get it it start either. He said he thinks the push button control panel is bad and just ordered a new one. He said it's a $394.00 part. Well if it's bad already I see it going bad again after the warranty expires and I will be the one having to pay almost $400.00 for the part. I am going to demand that they replace this tractor with one that has a normal key type starting system. I had to wait about 5 months for a replacement the first time. It better not take that long this time!
