I bought this mower new one year ago and have been fixing it ever since. First the link arm lift breaks in two and now today the keeper belt . How can metal pieces just shear in two, awful craftman ship. The assembly of the belts etc make it hard to clean keep the grass cleaned out on top of the deck and the mower has no power. I cannot go up the slightest grade without having to stop and back down. Will never buy craftsman again.
I really like this lawn mower and I have gotten many years of use out of it. I used it to start my business where I often times cut grass all throughout the summer. It will run very efficiently on one tank of gas. Even though I am not very strong, I can easily pull the string and the mower starts quickly. The handle you hold down to keep the mower going does not cause cramps in my hand even after mowing more than an acre of grass. This mower can easily go up and down hills and still keeps the same great perpulsion. I really like the rear wheels being larger than the front wheels because it makes it so much easier to push. The Craftsman lawn mower seems to be better quality than most because the starter pull cord has never broken and that seems to be something that breaks easily on other mowers. I really like this lawn mower and it is very easy to learn to operate. I definitely recommend this mower!
The great thing about this mower is the brand. I just really respect Craftsman and all of the quality products that they produce. I really love to use my craftsman lawn mower. We have had it for years and it was a big purchase for us when we were a younger couple. I have had it for over eight years and it works incredibly well still to this day. I really love the great insurance options that this company has as well. I know that I have ten years with this mower and if it dies before that ten years they will return it or get me a new one at no additional cost. If you are looking into investing in a lawn mower I would highly reccomend Craftsman. Performance The performance is absolutely incredible. It always does a great job of cutting the grass and the lawn is always nice and even. Handling I feel that this particular lawn mower does and excellent job at handling. Its not too heavy which makes it easy to operate. Durability The durability is wonderful. Like I had said before, it has lasted a very long time for our family. Safety It has great safety features. Ease of Use This lawn mower is very easy to use. Engine Power Great engine power.
I bought a Craftmans lawn mower when I first purchased my house, and it is by far one of the best mowers I have ever used. Craftsman has been around for many years, and they are famous for building very professional products. Their mowers are no different. The one I have looks nearly identical to the one pictured. It comes with a gas powered Honda engine, and has never failed to start in the two years I have owned it. Maintenance is pretty straight forward, and most parts are easy to get to and replace. The mower itself not only cuts grass, but does a fantastic job of mulching it as well. If you prefer to bag your clippings, there is a port to hook a bag to. My mower did not come with the bag, but it can be purchased separately for a fairly cheap price. There are differently settings for grass height, and it is a snap to change the height. Overall I could not be more happy with my Craftsman mower. It was priced very comparable to other mowers of its quality. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is shopping for a quality mower.
We do not have a very big yard so we just have a regular push mower, and through the years we have owned several different brands of push mowers and have run into trouble with all of them. We bought our Craftsman push mower a couple of years ago and have never had any sort of problem or issue with it since then, and it still runs like a champ. I love the craftsman brand in general because their products are made sturdy and strong. Craftsman products are reliable and dependable and they always stand up to the test of time. I love that Craftsman offers warranties with their product and you can easily buy replacement parts if something goes wrong, but as I said, we have not even had to do this because our craftsman mower still runs great. Performance Good "get up and go," and cuts evenly. Handling Handles great. Does not bog down as long as the grass hasn't turned into a forest. Durability Three years of summer mowing and my mower is still going strong. Have not run into a single problem with it. Safety No safety issues.
We have a smaller size lawn to maintain so we did not need anything huge in size or a riding style. This push mower is perfect for our needs. It cuts the grass to a perfect length in one pass over without having to go back and forth over the same areas multiple times as we have had with other mowers in the past. This is a gas mower which can be a little pain if you run out of gas while cutting the grass and do not have more on hand to refill the tank. It also may be more expensive to use overall when compared to electric mowers but there is no need to worry about having an electrical outlet access at all times either. Another feature of this mower is that it does not have a bag to catch and collect the grass clippings so raking is necessary after mowing the lawn if we want it to look nice. This mower always starts on the first try and the pull string starter is not too difficult to use. It is also not super heavy so it is easy for me to use when my husband is not around to do it. Overall a good push style mower for any family with average or small yard to maintain.
This is the third lawn mower we have purchased in the last ten years and so far the easiest one for me to use. I am not much of a grass cutter but when I have to cut it I am glad we bought this lawn mower. For one it is incredibly easy to start, one pull and it is roaring to life. It is very easy to hold the bar down and maneuver as well. Turns are easy and it cuts very evenly. I rarely if ever have to go back and get a spot that was missed. We live on a slope and I have no issues pushing this uphill. It mulches the grass nicely, unless it is still wet from rain, I never see huge clumps all over the lawn. Blades are easy to get off to sharpen and maintenance so far as been easy. In the fall we added the stuff to prevent the gas from gelling and stored it in the shed. This past spring it started right up for us. Performance Cuts evenly, mulches nicely, and has a powerful enough engine to cut uphill. Handling Very easy to push and turn. Safety If you let go of the bar it will automatically shut off. Good safety feature to have.
I have had an overall positive experience with this lawn mower from Craftsman. I have owned mine for about two summers and it has cut my grass flawlessly. One of the best things about this mower is that is easy to start. It usually starts up right away for me and runs smoothly the whole time I am cutting the lawn. It is easy to assemble and easy to use. It has a good height adjustment which has been great for me and my husband. We are both very tall people and have no problem using this mower comfortably. It is expensive, but that is the case with any lawn mower. It is worth the price because it is good quality. I have had no problems using this mower for the past two summers. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a good mower. Our lawn is pretty flat so it has worked well for use. Performance I have had no issues with performance. It has been a great mower for me. It gets the job done quickly and efficiently. Handling It handles easily for me. I was able to adjust it to the accurate height settings and it has been great. Durability I have owned mine for two years and it has held up great. Safety It is easy to start and easy to shut off. I would highly recommend. Ease of Use It is very easy to use.
My very first mower when I got my home a few years ago was a craftsman mower. I absolutely loved it because it was very small and just fitted for my size. The wheels had three different size adjustments so I could choose just how tall I wanted the grass and to get it started was very simple. I'm a smaller woman and it was quite easy to change the oil in this mower and to assemble it. I didn't even need any help from my guy to get the mower assembled and in use. It was super easy and super light weight. Unlike other mowers, I didnt have to pull and tug to get this mower across my lawn. The only reason I got rid of the mower was because my parents really needed one and I let them have mine to use at the time and ended up buying myself a new mower. Performance It did a great job of cutting my lawn. The lines were very even and straight and I could adjust the size of the cut so that my grass could be the exact length that I wanted. Overall it was a great buy and very simple to use. The pull start on my Craftsman mower was one of the easiest I have ever used. My parents are still using my mower to this day over five years later with absolutely no issues. Handling It is a self propolled mower so it does a great job of handling. I loved this mower and when I help mom with her lawn to this day I still wish I would have replaced this mower with another Craftsman model. Durability It's been in use almost six years without any issues now. Safety It's always best to wear boots when mowing the lawn just incase. If you run over something, it shoots out of the side which is a little unsafe but overall a great mower. Ease of Use It's very easy to use and pushes itself. It's easy to start up and I wish I could get a similar mower now. Engine Power The engine power worked fine for my small little lawn.
