Good Mower so far
Since this is a new Mower and there aren't many reviews yet, I figured I'd take the time to write a real review on it for people thinking about purchasing. Bought this mower last week and have only mowed my yard once with it so far. I will update this review if the mower gives me any reliability/durability issues. These are my initial impressions: PROS 1. Easy to assemble out of the box. 2. Comes with an extra blade, which I didn't expect. 3. Is about half as loud as my old mower, which had a Honda engine. 4. After adding oil and fuel, mower started up on the very first pull! Never had that happen before! no need to prime or mess with a choke either. Have cold started it a few times and always starts on the first pull and pull is easier than I am used to. 5. Good power for a 175cc engine. 6. Mulcher cuts nicely and mulches the grass into very fine particles. 7. B&S engine says MADE IN USA if that's important to you. CONS 1. Deck is stamped sheet metal and seems a bit flimsy. Wish they used a slightly thicker gauge sheet metal, even though it would add weight. OR...I would have been willing to pay extra for a cast alloy deck if it were available. 2. Lots of plastic parts. Experience has shown me that plastic parts will sometimes outlast metal, but it remains to be seen how durable all the plastic on this mower is. 3. Deck washer hook-up only works okay and you still need to tip up the deck and shoot it out from below if you want to get the bottom of the deck really clean. 4. Handle is pretty uncomfortable. I will probably wrap it with some padding, but Craftsman should have designed it a little thicker for comfort or added some foam padding. 5. Paint quality seems good on top of deck, but bottom of deck is only about half sprayed. I will probably spray the bottom myself to keep the rust away a little longer. All in all, for price I got this mower for (on sale), it seems like a great value and so far seems like the best mower I've ever owned (my 5th mower so far and the first Craftsman mower) My Dad's Toro Super Recycler is better, but also costs twice as much, so it doesn't seem like a fair comparison. So far I like it a lot better than my old mower that it's replacing, which was a Husqvarna 7021p with a Honda engine, and it only cost me about $40 more than the Husqvarna did.

Quiet Motor but....
Bought after looking at ALL of the options out there available. Liked the idea of a quieter engine. Was excited to try it out this morning. Ran quieter like advertised. And has power to cut through my winter rye. Front drive was nice. My issues are the following. Was pretty hard to pull the starter. Several times it didnt even budge. Grass catcher does not hold a lot. Seems to be at the wrong angle and all of the grass bunches up at the bottom of the door. Had to scoop a hand full each time. Front wheels did not disengage after letting go of the drive handle. Had to drag is in reverse. Going to try it again next weekend. If things dont get any better, going to take it back and try again.... Still a Craftsman fan though.....

New Mower!

Very please with the new craftman mower. Easy to start. Quiet and fuel efficient. Lighter than my previous model. Started first pull straight out of the box. Came with a spare blade and oil.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great bag

Great diaper bag. It's just the right size not to big or to small. It has plenty of pockets to hold everything you need and then some. The inside also has a plastic lining to protect it from spill and stuff. Which I like because with my luck there is always an accident and the plastic makes it easy to clean up and the bag don't get dirty and smelly.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So far so good

So far so good. I was able to put the mower together in less than 10 minutes. I have only cut the grass one time so far but it cut great. Lots of power and the mower was much quieter than a normal lawn mower.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Quiet + powerful for average sized yards

I bought this mower to replace my old Toro that has been with me for years. I knew I wanted something that was self propelled, quiet, and powerful. this mower fulfilled all of those needs. Unlike many others in the same price range, this one came with TWO blades - the one installed was for general purpose bagging and light duty mulching, and the second for heavy duty mulching and bagging or discharging. The gen. purpose blade cuts well, but if you are wanting to mulch and your grass is thick, go with the second. The mower also comes with these neat little cartridges that drip fuel stabilizer into the tank so that your gas stays fresh- very cool. I gave this mower four stars because I had to reroute the cables so that they did not interfere with the wheels in the rear. they also were run under the rear door catch, which would have lead to premature wear. aside from that, this mower is quiet and powerful enough to mulch pretty much anything you throw at it, it comes with 2 blades (which others do not), and it starts very easy without the need for priming or choke.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works Great!! -- Noticeably Quieter!

This lawn mower is noticeably quieter than any other standard walk-behind lawn mower that I have used, and works just as well. It is sturdy and the engine is made in the USA, which is always a good thing. It comes with two blades, one for standard mulching and side discharge, and another for "high suction" for the bagging attachment. I have only used the standard mulching blade so far and it works pretty well (sometimes I wonder if that blade doesn't stand up the grass well enough to cut it because some grass blades look a little longer, but maybe I am just looking to hard). How I understand it, the reasoning behind the two blades is that the regular one for mulching has a slimmer profile and helps keeps the mower quieter for normal use. I am overall very happy with it and think it is a good value for the money. I would buy this same mower again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Easy start

Pretty good machine. Nice and quiet. Lots of power. Only ran twice, but starts second pull every time. No choke, primer bulb, or thought required. Nice bagger system keeps the dust down and easy to remove and replace. The self propelled system works great although I would prefer a rear wheel drive system.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
