Description Specifications
The Craftsman 22 inch Self Propelled Mower Delivers a Good-Looking Lawn
The Craftsman 190cc Front Drive Self Propelled Mower delivers versatility and toughness with a value that might just have you thinking lawn care isn't so bad after all. With a 675 Gold Series Briggs & Stratton engine with 190cc's of power, there's no denying this Craftsman mower has the guts to cut down just about any length of grass in its path. No only is the engine potent, but it's easy to start, too, thanks to Ready Start™ and Smooth Start&trade. Ready Start is a system that eliminates the need for priming and choking the engine so all you have to do is pull, which is about 20 percent easier than on other lawn mowers thanks to Smooth Start. The mower pulls its own weight, too, as it cuts its way across your yard with a variable speed gear drive system on the front wheels so it moves at the speed you want it to move - effortlessly. There's no more need to lean into the handle with all your weight to mow up hills or through thick or wet grass which not only makes this Craftsman lawn mower more comfortable, but safer, too.Even with all of those comfort features, this Craftsman 22 inch Self Propelled Mower gets the job done and done well. Four height positions on the 22 inch high performance deck help you get the ideal look and feel you want on your lawn. Not only do you get to choose how thick and luscious you want your grass, but how to dispose of it as well by bagging, ... read more

Quiet, smooth, fast drive.

I bought this on sale last Fall to replace a 12 year old version of this mower that was showing it's age (rust holes and knocking engine). After using it for a month now, I am quite happy with this unit. [[[PROS]]] [*] This machine is noticeably more quiet than the old one (probably due to the piston slap on the old engine). [*] Drive speed is 50% faster than my old unit. I like to mow at a fast pace, so this is very nice for me. So far, the high drive speed has not bogged down the engine, but I mow every weekend to prevent excessive grass height. [*] Very easy for me to start. I put STABIL in the gas after testing it out last Fall. In the Spring, it started up in 4 pulls with this older gas. Now starts in one pull. MAKE SURE you put STABIL in your gas can! Stale gas is the leading cause of mower failures BY FAR. It's very easy to add to your gas can when filling it up at the gas station. [[[CONS:]]] [*] Having an upper bail (engine control) and lower bail (drive control) on the handle make my hands sore after 30 minutes. The small bars start to really dig in. The new model has a flat plastic cover over the top bail, which I might try to replicate on mine. My old lawnmower had a single bail (engine control) and a locking hand lever (drive control), which did not bother me much. [*] Deck steel thickness (gauge) is a little thinner than the old model. The deck does not flex much (steel is probably a better grade), but I wonder how long until rust eats through it. My old machine had rust holes in the deck, but it's first 10 years were likely harsh from the previous owners. [*] Drive gear box appears to be all plastic. This might not be a problem, but I wonder how robust this will be. The drive wheels on my old AND new mower have plastic gears, and they will fail if you bump the mower head-on into walls/fences/trees while in drive too often. When navigating around tricky spots, let go of the drive bail and push it manually. This tip should make your self propel system last for years.

mower

Had to replace an old mower after 10 years. Price was reasonable for a self propelled mower compared to a standard push mower. Easy to assemble (roles right out of the box).

good tool

I am pleased with this lawn mower so far. I compared the self-propelled mowers from several stores, but I decided to return to Sears to get this Craftsman. It is easy to move around and has sufficient power. The cuts are quite uniform. The sales people are friendly and helpful.

Good mower for the price

Bought the mower as a refurbished unit at Sears. Works like a champ! Starts first pull and is mechanically sound - no problems. I'm having to get used to the regular "self propelled" feature. I had the one that engages and goes faster as you push harder. The self propelled works fine, but is taking sone getting used to! Again, works fine, cuts fine. So far, it seems like a good mower and a good deal!

Replacement Lawnmower

The new mower had all the features I needed and was relatively inexpensive. Worked right out of the box. No need to prime the engine. Easy to start. Cut right through the 5-inch high grass (that had grown while I tried to fix my old mower) without a problem.

I'd give it 5-stars instead of 4-stars, but I've only used it twice. Perfect so far, but not enough experience with it.

Definitely a cheap build. Wish I kept my Toro.

I bought a rental property and took my couple year old similar Toro self propelled lawn mower to the rental property. I then needed to replace it for my residence and found this. Price wise, it was a good value. Quality wise, you get what you pay for. It is definitely made with cheaper materials than the Toro I had. I wanted a large engine that wouldn't bog down in deep grass and a self propelled system. This one seemed to fit the bill. The bag catch is questionable. The bag just clips to the frame with cheap plastic parts. I used it a couple times and it starts easily. It seemed to do ok but again, cheaper feel. I do like the fact that the handle bar has multiple setting for height. I have it set on the highest setting for mower height and it probably could go a bit higher. After all is said and done, I miss my old Toro.

great lawnmower

This craftman briggs and Stratton lawn mower is a great investment. It was easy to assemble and just pull and cut. I like how easy it is to maneuver it is truly an ez self-propelled drive mower. I would recommend to anyone. I used a jon deer for years then it finally broke after 10 year and buying this craftmans mower was worth every cent.

Speedy Lawn Mower

I was really surprised at how fast the lawn mower moved with the self-propelled front wheels. I saved probably 30 minutes with this new lawn mower compared to my older and slower craftsman self-propelled mower. I also like the door holder allowing easy placement of the grass bag. The mover starts right away without requiring any priming. Even better, the Briggs&Stratton engine is made in America.

Good mower

Bought this mower to mow a small yard with multiple hills. Was debating whether I needed a rwd and this handles the hills and bumps fine. Pull starts quickly and is easy to clean out.

Good machine

Easy to assemble, starts right up, better design for rear bagger, has plenty of power to mow tall/damp grass. So far so good. Perfect use for a 60x120 sized property.

lasted 10 months before self propel broke

I bought this mower 4/2013. pull starts easily. that gets 5 stars.
my lawn is only 60x100 sq feet. 8/2014 the self propel drive
stopped working.
It didn't even last 2 seasons (I'm female in upstate NY).
i'm not happy that I now have to some how get this lawn mower
back to the sears service area to get repaired.
