Just got this tractor used it for the first time over the weekend, grass was very long since my old craftsman stopped working the new tractor plowed right through the grass what a great cut I have a half acre took no more than 40 Min . Great tractor for the price
Eagle River, AK
Delivery of this item was not as expected. I was told explicitly that the tractor would be ready to go on delivery. Not the case. Had to add oil and gas. But the tractor itself has performed admirably. It does turn nicely, and it has cut heavier grass than it was supposed to. Wear your earplugs because it is loud, not more than average though. I like the safety features: it will stall out if you just get off it, or fall off. It will shut off on high inclines(10-15 degrees). It is safer for my son to use because of these features. You can keep it running if you get off, you just have to set a lever. It's just if you hop off it will shut off, mower on or not.
Bought this mower as ours stopped working. I literally checked out all mowers from everywhere and came back to this one and I'm glad I did. I got on it and mowed our 1/2 acre yard in no time at all. Not only was it fast but the blades cute perfectly and with the extra width that helped also, as our last on was only a 42" cut. The horsepower was nice especially when getting to the thick taller grass. Can't say enough about this mower.

This has worked great for me so far. I started out using it with the chute down and it throws the grass too far for my liking. I purchased the mulch kit for it from Sears and that didn't fit. It take the MTD kit that can be found on-line, but I returned it after trying cutting with the chute up and shipping block in place. Nice pattern and no need for the mulch kit! It has a great feel in the seat and steering wheel with zero problems. Make sure you adjust the deck wheels 1/2" from your cutting height.
I have an average sized yard, and the mower has torn the deck belt twice in the first 3 months. The deck was on the highest setting and grass was average height for weekly mowing. Completely unacceptable and belts are not covered under warranty.
it has been a great mower and my first craftsman however i am a little disappointed that even though the salesman told me that it would cut in reverse every-time i try its stalls the engine

I purchased this mower 2 weeks ago and have had too many problems to give a favorable review. The mower would not start after I got it home so I contacted Sears and they told me to bring it back to the store, I rented a truck and trailer to get it back to the store because Sears would not pick it up. After 10-15 minutes of messing with the tractor the store worker got it to start and suggested that there was "gunk" in the carburetor (from when the manufacturer tested the engine originally) and it should "run just fine" now. Since then I have regretted keeping the mower because it still does not start up on the first try (once it gets started it seems fine but a brand new mower should not take multiple turns to get started) and the cut is very uneven which leaves my lawn looking terrible. I typically have great success with Sears' products but this one has been disappointing. And to be fair, this mower has some strengths, I like the automatic transmission, ability to mow in reverse and I like that there are 5 cutting heights to choose from. I still haven't decided whether to return/exchange it or just put up with the issues to avoid the expense of renting a truck/trailer again.
This is a smooth riding, clean cutting, easy to understand lawn tractor at a great price. As far as these devices go, it is not overly noisy, easy to start and as I previously mentioned, gives a very smooth, confortable ride.
