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

Excellent Mower

I had been nursing along my previous Craftsman mower that I picked up at a yard sale 10 years ago. I finally gave in this year and purchased a new one. I am absolutely amazed at the difference it made. My yard looks so much healthier. This mower is also easy to use and does an excellent job. Plus, the self-propelled feature is very nice. I almost didn't purchase it, but I'm so glad that I did. It knocked 15 minutes off my weekly chore.

After 14 years, my Lawnboy needed replaced. I was going to buy another Lawnboy but saw this Craftsman mower on sale so I purchased it and took delivery the first week in August 2012. Big mistake. The first problem I noticed the first time I used it was a squealing sound when the self-propelled function was engaged. The mower functioned properly, it just squealed when in the self-propelled mode. The second problem with this mower is that after only 3.5 months of once a week use it doesn't start. When I bought this mower I also bought the recommended Sears lawnmower oil and fuel stabilizer and have taken very good care of this mower. So when it wouldn't start, I called Sears and told them the problems with this mower and I wanted to return it for a full refund. I was told that since it was over 30 days old I needed to find a way to get it to a Sears repair center to have it repaired. I was told this was Sears policy. My policy moving forward ... no more Sears products.

Self-Propelled EZ Mower

I love my new Craftsman 22" Front Drive Self-Propelled EZ Lawn Mower from Sears. Mulched grass clippings collected in the easily removable bag makes a great additive for my compost bin so I am feeding my garden while I mow my lawn. I have gone through several lawn mowers from other retail outlets but I consistently find that the Craftsman with its Briggs & Stratton Engine always seems to perform best and hold up longer.

self propelled lawn mower

The lawn mower is self propelled easy to handle. Would not recommend if you have sharp corners. Great product and the price was even better

Easy to run, good value...

Decent self propelled mower, really does all the work for you. Easy to start and moves along fast and you can cover a lot of ground with the 22" wide design. It was a great deal just before Fathers day with a generous gift card deal attached.

self propelled mower

Starts first pull. Would rather have had a rear wheel drive but cuts well & I am getting used to front wheel drive. Attachments go on & off easily. The price was very reasonable.

poor traction on incline

Engine wise it is great. Started first pull right out of the box. First time using it it mowed well but the front doesn't seem heavy enough to get traction on incline. Second time I was mowing the self propelled wheels stopped working. I have requested a return and I'm just waiting to get back to the store to return it.

Self-Propelled EZ Not So EZ!!

I specifically ordered this self-propelled mower because it had both the pull cord and a start button. However, when I removed it from the carton and begin assembling it, I thought the attachment for the start button was missing. It was missing alright - it didn't even come with the start feature. Because of stomach surgery, I couldn't use the pull cord feature, so I thought I had found the perfect solution ... not so. Returned the mower.

Great Value; fine machine

Purchased this as a replacement for a Toro Personal Pace self-propelled lawn mower. It's taking a while to get used to the front wheel drive on this Craftsman and have to constantly fight the tendency to push down on the handle (it raises the front wheels and loses traction). Overall, I'm very happy with the value.

Works Great!

Very little assembly required, which made it easy to just start mowing. Oil was also included, which was great. The mower was VERY easy to start, with no priming first! We love it!

So far so good

Are your like me and like to mulch away and try to skip a week now and then? For the price your not going to find a better mower. The Toro mowers seem to bog down easier. Do make sure after the fall to clean out and check the air filter and check the air flow or you will end up with carb problems. Mine was jammed packed with leaf dust after last fall.

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.

EZ lawn mower

I ordered on line and picked it at the store. It was eazy to assemble and started on the first pull.I like that I can choose to use the bag, mulch or the side vent.

Craftman's lawnmower

I can only rate it good because I have only used it twice. However, I like the lawnmower. I like that you don't have to prime it and it was easy to start. It started up with only one pull of the cord vs. other mowers where I have had to prime and pull several times before the mower started. The only thing I wish is that the bag was larger.

Satisfied

The engine works smooth, no heavy noise so far. the self propelled option works fine, i have been using this for last 15 days and still have no complains. The mulching facility also works proper. Hope this works the same way as its working now...
