Product Description

The Craftsman 21in. Lawn Mower Delivers Dependable Performance, Durability and Long-Lasting Life

Boasting the Precision Plus™ starting system, the Craftsman CX Series 21inch Rear Wheel Drive Mower delivers high-performance bagging and mulching with a durable blade, giving your lawn a manicured appearance. 21 inch 3-in-1 deck gives you the options of side discharge, mulch to put nutrients back into the lawn, or bag clippings for disposal. A Briggs & Stratton® Platinum Series 175cc* OHV engine (7.75 torque) delivers high-performance durability and long-lasting life. 6-speed selector variable and speed-propelled, the mower can be set to maximum speed to match the desired pace and creates better traction for hilly yards with its rear-wheel drive design.

The Craftsman 21in. Lawn Mower boasts 3-point deck-height adjustment with tool-less caster-wheel adjust for quick, accurate height changes. Plus, its unique deck design extends beyond the wheels for more precise trimming and edging. Flexible cutting heights ranging from 1-1/4 in. to 3-3/4 in. make quick work of any lawn or grass type. EZ Empty rear bagger with Dust Blocker™ (1.9 BU) reduces the amount of dust, while allowing the bag to completely fill with clipping.

  • The Craftsman CS Series 21inch Rear Wheel Drive Mower boasts an ergonomic padded handle for increased mowing effort and reduced user fatigue
  • EZ Deck Wash system is equipped to connect to the garden hose for easy cleaning, preventing grass build-up and for better cutting performance
  • Unit comes fully assembled with no tools required for convenience
  • 7 in. front, lockable caster and 8 in. rear wheels - caster wheels can be locked to keep a straight line while mowing in hilly areas, or allowed to rotate for easy, zero degree turns and maneuvering around obstacles
  • Two-year warranty
  • Available in 50 states
  • *As rated by the engine manufacturer

overall quality of the controls and bag catcher very, very poor.
couldn't get the speed control lever on left side of handle to work without using great force. The seals around the bag allowed more grass to fly out than what was being caught in the bag it seemed Could not use mower without being covered up in grass clippings

Torture test by professional

This mower was purchased mid season to replace a professional grade push mower. This unit was ABUSED and tortured like no mower should be. These were the results: Quick read PROS and CONS Good: Plenty of POWER OHV Briggs, bagger worked perfectly, front casters awesome, Started every time, never scalped grass. Perfect for flat lawns. Never clogged with grass. mulched well, side discharged well. Very quiet (for how much power it makes) Bad: Bag filled in 2 Minutes, had to be heavily modified in order to be reliable (speed control/ plastic knobs), Belt Drive, poor traction on hills. small gas tank. Deck wash is a joke. After one season of pro use, this mower is retired and now used for home use. would highly recommend the repair plan as it coves the trans, and belts. long story... 10 minutes after purchase this mower was tested in the parking lot. Started within 2 pulls (and continued to there after) The speed selector was set to 5 and the (red) propel handle was pulled. there was no movement. the speed selector would just pop down to 1. Duct tape was used to hold in place as my day needed to go on. the casters were shoddy. the handle wobbled. upon cutting for two straight hours: The drive system is belt driven. (as most under $1,000 are) this meaning the belt is ALWAYS slipping as per design to vary speed. This also causes the wheels not to turn on hills. Very poor for any up hill mowing. low profile wheels and wide bottom near the rear means you will bottom out a lot on hills and over rough terrain. wheels will spin in the air. Smaller gas tank than used to, fill every 45 minutes or so. The blade and deck work wonderfully. VERY even cut, never scalped a lawn. OHV mower has TONS of power. never bogged down. (rebuild) since I was going to abuse the mower so things were fixed. the speed selector had holes drilled so I could use a pin to keep it in the speed until I manually changed it. The plastic wing nuts on the front casters were replaced with metal, as were the hardware on the handles and some other places. Handles were tightened. All the casters and swivels were taken apart and packed with grease. A custom Brush guard was fabricated and bolted to the deck to protect the muffler, gas tank, and carburetor since these were all very exposed. TORTURE: The mower performed well 10 hours a week for 15 weeks. Then I submerged this mower in 50' long piles of leaves, trying to stall it out. it never missed a beat. completely covered and chopping away. wet grass never clogged the deck. the blade was sharpened and rotated but always cut well. I thought this mower would blow, or at least stall out. I was surprised. I would EASILY buy one for home use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great control, great speeds, awesome mower!

I had been researching mowers the entire winter due to my mower dying last season. So it was something I had to do. I had a craftsman mower that lasted me 14 years almost to the month and day. So craftsman was already on my good side. I knew that I wanted rotating front wheels and rear wheel powered wheels. Pushing a lawn mower the past 14 years has sucked. I have used this mower now 5 times and it is 20 x's quieter. It's easy to change the height of the deck for shorter or longer cut. Lets talk about Gas. I have a .78 acre lot and have filled the tank once but I have mowed 5 times. I don't really have any negatives about this mower other than storage, but that is due to my garage and all the **** in it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great trim mower.

Front crazy wheels make this a great trim mower. My granddaughter handles it with ease since she doesn't have to push it.
