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.

Wow I tried to leave a full, informative review but like most Craftsman tools this site comes up short as well and limits your input. So here it is in a nut shell. Guys your spending almost $500 with this mower once you pay tax etc, spend the money on a Honda or a reputable mower. Bagger is horrible, speed control does not work and the engine ran as rough as could be. I used the mower less than an hour and returned it, I am now looking at other brands.

Hard to get used to at the beginning. Had to immediately adjust the height of the mower. In thick grass the rear wheel drive does not push through and if you adjust to a higher speed, when it breaks free, you are running after the mower.

Had my eye on this mower for some time I had a craftsman push mower with blade clutch that I was mowing my grandas lawn with over 18 years ago (and still runs by the way jsut takes a few pulls to get it started and is seriously heavy), and wanted to replace it with another craftsaman. Have a decent sized yard and use riding mower for the majority of it but wanted the swivel front wheels to get around the many obsitcals in my yard. So I noticed a sweet sale price on this in the store and put it on layway right away, then I pick up the mower and get it home and low and behold the great deal that I thought i was getting was for different model... I take it back and of course the manager acts like it is not his problem "someone is playing with the tags" (even though I showed him a clear pictures of the mower that the salesman pulled the tag from and rang me up....). Long story short payed the diffference for the this model and, started with like half a pull! No owners manual in the box.
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

I just purchased this mower a week ago and have used it once and love it! There is a learning curve after using a conventional mower for 10 yrs, my old craftsman lasted that long and I gave it to a friend, very durable mowers. It is still going strong! I am hoping this one will last me just as long or longer!
