I purchased this from the local sears store and was very skeptical about this purchase based on the reviews of the tractor and bagger. I am glad that I went with my instinct rather than what I read. The tractor mows evenly and completely right out of the gate. After receiving the bagger attachment, it took me about 45 min to put together and attach it to the tractor. I could not be more pleased with the performance. I mowed the yard for the first time this season on setting 2 (real short) as I wanted to get the dead grass and leaves that I did not pick last fall. Needless to say it was a chore with a push mower and bagger. This tractor had more than enough power to close cut as well as pick up the yard waste that was present. The bagger clogged once because I filled it over capacity. After unclogging that first time, I had no further clogging issues whatsoever. It picked up all the leaves and grass clippings and conveniently placed into the bagger system. I had only to empty the contents into the yard debris bags. My wife and I are so proud of the job this mowing system did for our lawn. The bagger is easy to put on and take off the tractor. Even though our lawn is only a half acre it performed better than expected and made our yardwork less cumbersome than we anticipated.
This tractor vibrates something terrible. I had a 16 HP Craftsman 42 inch for 15 years. The only time it would vibrate this bad was when it was mulching tall grass and you went to fast. The gas pedal is the worst, it is hard to keep your foot on because of the vibration. You have to stop and replace your foot on the pedal every so often. I had to talk to 3 Sears agents online and by phone before I went to the store to get an answer on the bagger. This tractor does not have a 3 bin bagger option. Only 2 bin. I am returning this tractor and getting model 25081. I hope to have better luck with the 25081.

i love the craftsman riding lawn mower!!! my wife got it for me and i couldnt be happier. we have a huge yard and it used to take me FOREVER to cut it, but now i can get the job done in a fraction of the time. it rides super smooth and i can easily adjust the blades to the desired height. i have been telling all my buddies how awesome this mower is!!!
1st, I know very little about riding mowers. However, I trust CRAFTSMAN as I've had a few in my life and they always last exceptionally well. This one is simple, easy to see things to work on or maintain, comfortable as possible (WITH cup holder!) and leaves my yard looking great w/a nice, level, clean cut. The new transmission things are great for altering speed when necessary after getting used to it. NOw, if it only had air conditioning!
