DO NOT BUY THIS MOWER. This mower is the worst I have ever owned in 45 years of mowing lawns. When the mower comes to a stop at a fence or tree or any object, the wheels lock when trying to pull it back from the obstacle. I have had taken this mower back to Sears twice to have it shipped to their repair shop but upon return it was not fixed either time. Grass flies out from the area around the bag. The lawnmower is worthless and Sears cannot fix it but they won't take it back either
My husband and I went to Sears to check out the lawnmowers. We checked all the riding lawnmowers that were outside and just happened to walk inside the store where they were having closeout sales. We saw this lawnmower at a great price,brand new in the box and brought it home. We have used it twice so far and love it. It may be discontinued but it is light weight and easy to use. It was a great mower at a great price.
if you need an easy to use and cheap and also works all the time and cut great get this.
I bought this lawnmower for my husband who insisted on using his old mower because it still worked, even though the wheels were literally taped together and the self-propelling feature no longer worked. It took him forever to cut the lawn and his back ached terribly from pushing afterward. Now that he's using this new lawnmower, and even though it's a smaller lawnmower, he's cut the time it takes to mow the lawn in half and he's not complaining about his back (as much - he does have a bad back). Anyway, he's happy and that's what counts.
After one year of light use it won't start, in spite of following all of the instructions for storage. I've replaced and cleaned everything I can. You can't fix the carburetor if that is the problem, as it is sealed away. The only option is to drag it in for service at a minimum of $85.
The front wheel drive is fairly useless, it's slow and the wheels don't grip into the grass very well. The bag gets half full in no time and starts clogging the blade and spewing grass all over.
This little engine is in over its head on this bigger machine. Do yourself a favor, cough up a little more dough, and at least get a 6.75 TP engine.
Was easy out of the box, raise and tighten handle, push the gas button three times and it started right up!! Very easy to use and love that you can either mulch or bag the grass...
I had just bought a new Toro self propelled mower from HD that had vairiable speed self propel feature that did not work well at all. I returned it after two uses because the variable drive would just quit working after a few minutes of use. I then went to my local Sears store and bought this mower because it was the only one sears offered with single speed self propel feature ( I know this works because I am replacing my 9 year old Single speed self propeled 21 inch Craftsman due to age). This mower works just like the proven machine that it is replacing except this one has a little less power than the old 6.75 model that I had. It works well though and I like the ability to prime the engine unlike the other engines currently offered at the store. I do recommend this item, however, I would have been more interested in a Craftsman front drive single speed mower with a B&S 6.75 engine for a bit more money!
<p>Bought this mower about a month ago. Easy to start and the grass easily dumps out of the bag. The height adjustments are harder than my old Yard-man mower. This model doesn't have a hose attachment for cleaning. Move up to the high-wheel model. You get a more comfortable handle.</p>

<p>Solid mower. Starts easily. At first I thought the bag was too small but then decided that by being smaller it was easier to empty, as I always let it get real full before I stop to empty it. I could handle empting the bag into a plastic bag with one hand on each. Goes everywhere I point it and mulches very well </p>
<p>I bought this lawnmower and it will not start. Its going back this afternoon and I will demand a replacemnt. Ran for about 3 seconds!</p>
<p>IT SURE IS PRETTY FOR A LAWNMOWER. HOWEVER, IF I HAVE TO STOP THE THING TO PICK UP LARGE TWIGS OR TO HAVE A CONVERSATION, IT WILL NOT RESTART AFTER THE SECOND TIME. I HAVE TO LEAVE IT FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES AND THEN IT STARTS UP AGAIN FINE. ITS RIDICULOUS.</p>
<p>bought in march 2012. added gas when i got home. gas leaked from primer. returned and got a new one. three months later new one does not have power to mow. nothing but junk.</p>
So far I like my mower. Has a good amount of power for a push mower. Cuts well.
I NEVER write reviews, but with this mower I feel I need to. I bought the mower in late May, have used it only 3 times, and it's already in the shop. Not only is it already in the shop, but it has to be sent off for repairs. I am so disappointed in not only the mower, but the customer service from Sear's:-( I highly recommend choosing another mower!!!!!!
