Excellent Mower,Bags Well, Start on First Pull Every time.

Great Mower the 160cc tears through my 12,000 square foot yard with no problem. So I thought about that $700 Honda and after reading the reviews and touching it in store I felt it was way to much money for the performance. I found this online at $269.00 cant really go wrong at that price. Reading prior reviews most are correct the Mower has a couple of shortcoming, Yes the bag could be bigger and yes if you run over a dirt spot the dust comes though. I live in the Northwest and we have wet heavy grass often, so the design of the bag allows airflow to catch all the grass. It does pick up all clippings, it comes on and off with ease. I would rate it a 5 star. The 160CC Honda mower has more than enough power and it is about 40% quieter than older mowers. It has more of Hum to it vs the Rrrrgghhhh of older mowers. Amble height settings, they move from notch to notch with little effort. I've read some complaints on the handle bars, I love them. It lets keep the mower moving and I can spin int 180 either direction with ease. There an old design of years back but I love em compared what I"ve tried on the newer designed throttles and what not. I have medium size hands, I 'm 52 Yrs old and have not experienced any of the complaints that others have written about. This Lawnmower has exceed my expectations in all areas, it's a great mower that does an excellent job of mowing. I would reocmend this Mower to friends & family as a good mower at a good value.

4 months old...in for service a 2nd time

The first 3 months and 2 weeks were great .... good feeling mower, able to handle my medium-ish urban yard well. I have a hill in the front that has to be almost a 60 degree incline (about 40 ft of frontage), so power assist has been key. Then about a month ago, the mower died in the middle of a mow. Still had gas in the tank, nothing unusual, just died. Cue the Sears service team ... took the mower to my local Sears and 10 days later, had it back with a new carburetor. Pulled the cord to start, mowed for about 2 minutes (engine running unevenly the whole time), then the mower died again. Just dropped the mower off - again - at Sears for service. This time, they put a $40 charge on my card for a repair under warranty. Not sure what that was all about, but there's not much choice since they have to do the repair. I bought the mower because it was a Craftsman with a Honda engine, but the reliability has been unacceptable. You may be better advised to look elsewhere.

Reliable & Dependable Mower

The 160cc Honda engine 22" front drive self-propelled mower can handle your toughest grass without choking out. Just use proper height adjustments. It is simple in its design and easy to service when required.

Happy With Purchase

|

Nice unit.Easy start.Plenty of power.I bought in April of 2014 and have had no breakdowns.My only complaint is that the bag is a little small.I mulch 90% of the time so it is no big deal.Single speed drive is fine.Not too fast and not too slow.
I purchased because of the Honda powerplant.Have been pleased with the power and quietness.Great on fuel also.I shut down last fall with a 1/2 of a tank of premium and no stabilizer added and it started on the second pull this spring.
For the price this can't be beat in my opinion

Is it wrong to love a lawn mower?

|

I bought this mower on the advice of an awesome small engine repair mechanic who said to get the next best thing to a pricey-but-awesome Honda mower...an all-metal deck mower (hard to find anymore) with a Honda engine. This mower is beautiful...simple, straight-forward assembly (go slow when adding the engine oil...probably won't need the entire bottle. Pour 1/2, wait a sec (a minute really), then check. Gas up, open the throttle (easy turn of a large dial on the engine verses the handle), pull cord 1x or 2x, set height and mow to heart's content. Very smooth operation, wheels roll solid and nice - not all jiggly and wobbly as if the mower wants to wander. Surprisingly nimble for a large 22" mower. Big rear wheels are excellent for "push down and turn pivoting." Self-propel feature is super-strong and easy to operate...grab that lower lever and you will move out! Thing is, if your lawn is crab-fescue blend like mine (LOL), the self-propelled speed may cause mower to leave some tall blades standing and make it necessary for dual passes. You will likely get a better result if your grass quality exceeds mine - which isn't real hard to do, or cut your grass more frequently. All mowers have issues when grass reaches that mower's limit. Three "downfalls" to this mower: (1)No electric start; (2) No blade-stop while engine is running; (3) Padded handle. My mechanic says he fixes lots of electric start/push-buttton mechanisms, so no-brainer there. Blade-stop would've been nice, but this thing starts so easily that restarting after emptying the grass catcher (or whatever the reason for paused mowing) is no biggie. And a bit of padding on the handle(s) would've been nice, especially when hands get sweaty, but some good yard gloves are just the thing. Speaking of grass catcher, says it dustless or dust-free (can't recall which) - either way, it's a lie...rather dusty indeed. I leave my clippings on the lawn, so I mow sans-catcher anyway...so should you! Lol.

Very excited to see how well it shreds leaves in the Fall. Plan is to get a good Gator blade for mulching or the Sears mulching blade. Front-wheel driven units are better for servicing when belt replacement is needed without having to dig into the innards of the mower like with some rear-wheel or all wheel drive models. Bottom line: What this mower lacks in fancy features, it delivers in grunt-factor and a super cut. Besides that, the mower looks good. Big, rear wheels on an all-black mower screams, "This yard is about to get tamed!"

Not too happy so far

|

Mower started on first pull and ran fine but I find if I have to shut off and restart it immediately, it will not start. I have to leave it sit for a while. Very aggravating! Any suggestions?

Great machine

|

I am very happy with this mower. It's got the power to move on its own without me struggling to push it. Easy enough for me to pull the cord. Easy to maneuver because of the high wheels.

This thing is dreadful!! I'd give it zero stars if I could

|

I have used MANY mowers in my life, and this is by far the worst mower I have ever used. I can't tell you how unhappy I am as they would probably not allow obscenity on their reviews.

Within the first year, the front wheel/drive needed to be fixed. Fortunately, it was under warranty. After the repair, and about another six months in I can see that the wheel is again ready to fail.

The mulching is horrific. I first tried to mulch using the the standard blade. I decided I needed the mulching blade since it left a solid line of grass in my path. (No, it was not spread as you would expect.) After that fiasco, I purchased the top of the line mulching blade recommended. Whooa. I had no idea you could mold grass into such large clumps. If my grass needs to be cut any longer than about 1/2 inch, this mower leaves mountains so high you could ski on them if you desired. I've used enough mulchers in my life to know this is not normal. I can only assume that the shape of the inside of the mower is not correct to properly mulch. I tried everything I know in an attempt to get it to mulch properly.

Now...let's discuss bagging. Yah, expect to be emptying 1/3 full bags of grass because if the rear bagger gets any fuller than that, it starts leaving the above mentioned mountains of grass. Expect to have friends bring you meals while you empty the bags all night.

Tonight...the engine froze. And yes...it does have plenty of oil. I personally did a tune up on it before I started the season.

I'm done! How do I get my money back?

Craftsman Honda GCV160 Lawnmower

|

I received mine as a gift, from my mother in law. I was surprised at the power, the ease of use! And the ability to shut off the fuel flow, when not in use! I set the choke, I pull the recoil and boom, it starts! I wipe it off when I am done, I clean the undercarriage. This year, It is an oil change and sparkplug and new air filter! All required to keep it running properly. I love the side discharge, for my first mowing of the year. Plus, I like the rear bagger which I will use the rest of the year! And the self-propelled unit, pulls me along I am a fast walker, but this unit drags even me when I mow! Great excersized in mowing! Instead of mowing my yard and taking my time, this Craftsman/Honda mower make mowing a breeze taking only 20 minutes!

Honda engine Craftsman lawnmower.

|

A very good mower for the money. Used it for one season so far and it work great with no hesitation. Have already changed out the blade and ready to sharpen the original. Will be changing the oil, spark plug, and air filter soon for the second season.

Good purchase after 2 years!

|

It is still going fine and works as designed. The front drive is great for relatively flat lawns, but on hills I'd prefer rear wheel drive.

Good mower

|

Decent mower, although the first one I brought home was defective (bent wheel adjustment mechanism). Sears took it back obviously, but it was a pain to discover it only after getting home, assembling and putting in gas and oil...

Love it!

|

I like this mower to much I mowed my neighbors' yards and it all was done in a much shorter time. The mower is easy to handle and starts on the first pull even if the engine is hot. This is much better than a lawn service.

160cc Honda Engine cranks on the first pull

|

I had gotten use to my Briggs & Stratton engine that I didn't want to let it go. My co-worker loves his Honda mower. After buying Carbs, wheels and lots repairs, I decided to break down and see what the Honda was all about. WooooHoooo. Self propelled, one pull front drive. I love it. My 16 year old loves it even more. Talk to me in about a year and I probably will sound just like this.
