Decent when it actually runs

I bought this Craftsman 190cc front drive mower from Sears in October 2012 to replace a crummy B&S engined Troy-Bilt. I used it twice before I put it away for the season. In the spring of 2013 I used it maybe 7 or 8 times and then it refused to start in June. We took it to our local Sears were they shipped it off and and it returned with an adjusted carburetor covered by warranty. It ran fine the rest of the mowing season. This year after mowing twice with it, it again refused to start. Sears shipped it off (this is about a two week cycle of shipping it and receiving it each time) and it came back with a new carburetor. I took it home, filled it with gas and started it up. After a minute, it died and gas began to pour from the air filter housing. I took it off and it was coming from the butterfly valve of the carburetor. We called our Sears and they very graciously came out to our house in the country to pick it up so we wouldn't have to transport it in our car. This time it was a three week wait to get it back, as they didn't have enough room on the truck to ship it to the mechanics. I finally got the call that the fuel line was replaced under warranty and that they replaced our blade. That has NOTHING to do with leaking gas! I refused to pay for that. The tech also had to "clean the carburetor" which was brand new. What?? When our Sears employees (again, very helpfully dropping it off at our house) dropped it off I took it in our garage and filled it up with gas to mow. Before I even got the gas cap screwed on, gas began to stream out of the air filter housing again. Ridiculous. I called the Sears customer service line this morning and they told me we'd have to take it in for repairs for the FOURTH TIME IN A YEAR to have it reviewed for possible replacement. Why do we have to bring this piece of junk in so many times before they'll even think of replacing it? I'm sorry, but I can't go 2 months without having a mower. I'm afraid I might have to go to Lowes to pick up a Honda or Husqvarna so I can actually mow my yard this summer. You've really let me down, Sears.

This is one powerful, mower! It's front wheel drive takes all the pushing out of mowing, i literally follow my mower. It starts easily and it replaces my 14 year old craftsman Briggs & Stratton lawn mower. GREAT mower.

Worst Mower EVER

This mower is extremely heavy and handles like a 1000lb square bowlder. Even though it is self propelled, the mower is so heavy, the front wheels just sit there and spin on the grass. The only way it moves by itself is if you lift up on the handle. The handle is very hard on the hands. Our 14 year old mower handles better than this piece of junk, and as if that wasn't bad enough, there was a huge restocking fee that Sears does not tell you about until you try to return it. It's not like you can try the mower out before you buy it! I would rather cut my grass with a pair of scissors than use this lawn mower again.

Worst lawnmower I have owned.

I purchased it in June of 2013, and it has been in the shop three times since then and it still doesn't run. When it did run, it was a decent mower, but it has had problems running since I purchased it. It will sometimes start, but it slowly loses power and then sputters out and dies. It has had the carburetor replaced and rebuilt a couple of times but it never lasts. The service department can not answer questions because you have to ship the mower back and wait 2-3 weeks until it comes back, with a couple of notes from the mechanic. Worthless product, and bad service.

190cc 22" Front Drive lawn mower

For a 6.75 hp motor, sure doesn't have the power to cut tall thick grass.
Ended up cutting area twice, once with the height adjustment all the way up. Second pass with adjustment on second level.
My old 5.5 hp would cut with no problem.
Also, the engagement bar is quite uncomfortable.

Do not buy!!

We bought this lawn mower because I have been a big fan of Craftsman products. This is the second Craftsman item that I have bought in the last 1 1/2 years with issues. This Ready Start lawnmower always starts up on one pull as advertised, but dies within 30 seconds to 5 minutes of running, I let it set for a few minutes, then it starts back up. After 7 weeks, I returned it and they sent it away for repairs. Three weeks I was without a mower! When I got it back, they replaced the shroud (why?), recoil start (why? this was not an issue), spark plug (why? wasn't fouled out), and adjusted the carburetor. They tried charging me for the spark plug after 5 times of use and I told the clerk and the repair people I wasn't going to pay for anything!! It was a little over 2 months old!! I should have gotten my money back then! Still doesn't run and is getting worse. I can mow 1 strip at a time before it dies, then I have to let it sit for about 5 minutes to cool off. I will not take it back to Sears to have it repaired again. DO NOT BUY!!

this mower sucks, won't start after 1 season.

It will not start. I feel like if it had a primer it actually would start. no prime my ***. i've only used this mower for one season! i wish i would have bought a honda. yea i checked the spark plug, made sure the fuel is fresh, cleaned the air filter, and i've been out there yanking that cord for too long. piece of ****. i put some drops of gas in the intake and it fired up but then shut right off. do not buy this mower.

Great Deal

This was a replacement for our current model that lasted 6 years. I hope this one lasts longer. One improvement over our last one is the nice larger rear wheels. We love this feature.

Started off ok...

Bought this in March 2014 to replace my dying 15 year old craftsman mower. Started off great, felt strong. My first self propelled mower and while not amazing, does take a fair amount of effort off of you, which was good enough for me. The bag did allow a bit of dust through it though.

My yard is not large and I typically mow twice a month depending on how much rain we get. By early September (so roughly the 10th mow or so), during a typical mow, suddenly a lot of noise is coming from this thing. Made sure I didn't run over anything odd (the grass was a bit deep), checked the oil, and made sure the blade was still attached. All ok, however now the pull start is now jammed and that was it for this machine. Took it back to Sears under manufacturer warranty no problem.

A week later I'm told the engine threw a rod due to lack of oil and destroyed the engine. I've gone a full year in the past without checking oil and I've never known a mower to use all of it's oil after 10 uses...besides, once I shut it down the oil level was checked and it was fine. They say user neglect and will not honor the warranty. $273 to repair a $300 mower that from my view will have the same problem in 6 months. I thought Craftsman products were some of the highest quality items you could buy. Sears used to stand behind everything they sold, especially their own brand. They must be in bad financial shape if they are finding ways to not honor warranties on their faulty products.

My only rationale is that at least the cost of this mower was the same as if I had paid a service to cut my grass all summer. Don't spend any extra $$ on their extended warranty (I didn't)...they'll just find a way to blame it on you and you will be out of that much more money.

This was my last major purchase at Sears, I'll be going to Big Orange or Big Blue.

good, but not as good as the Craftsman I had before

I had a Craftsman lawn mower for 14 years, but it stopped working just last month. Naturally, I got this new one from Sears for replacement. Overall, it is pretty good and I am happy with it. It was easy to put together and started with an easy pull the first time. However, I noticed few things that are just not as good as the old one. First of all, the gas cap is much less secure. Secondly, the bag is much cheaper quality.

Great Lawn Mower Upgrade!

I really needed a new lawn mower and this one had great reviews and a decent price so I picked it up. My boyfriend who does the mowing really loves it, granted he had a push mower previously so this is so much easier to move around the yard. We also have a hill in the front which it moves along great up and down the hill. Craftsman and Sears have always been my favorite brands for quality products and I love that they have instore pickup with curbside delivery! Will definitely order from Sears again.

Great Mower!

I always have used front-wheel self-propelled mowers, but the last one I had was with the 12 larger rear wheels. In the thick Florida grass, the large wheels seem to make it easier to turn at the end of a row. I just got this mower, with the same specs as my last mower that was not a Craftsman and have used it twice, and it performs well. I like the idea of the 22 inch less row to mow for every 22 rows I guess. This mower starts in one pull, with no priming bulb needed, or choke...with the engine hot or cold.

Nice mower

I really like this mower. Set up was really easy, slice open the end of the box roll it out. Fold the handle up add ALL the oil and gas. Boom good to go. This mower is more than powerful enough to power through AND cut my pure Kentucky Blue Grass lawn! I enjoy the bagging feature, although my lawn seems to be too big for this to be a convenient feature for me, although it's nice to remove all that debris.

I really am proud if the job this mower does.

How can I get an owners manual for my Model# 37043 Craftsman lawnmower?
by David Southworth 
July 1st, 2013
David VanSant
If you can read the complete model number, should be on a label on the rear of the mower deck, you can then go to Go to the parts and accessories tab and enter the complete model number. The owners manual should be available for download in .pdf format.
