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.

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.

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.

Quiet and well built.

I was looking for a low priced but yet reliable lawnmower. This on fits the bill. I've had it for a year now and it starts on the first pull every time. It's quiet and easy to clean with the hose hookup. Only problem is the front wheels like to lock up when I release the self propel lever and pull the mower back. Push it fron a little and then they unlock.

******** for the money

Very good for the money, easy to start and works great. The one and only thing would be a larger bag to make this better.

Solid mower

Originally, I was going to buy a push mower; however, I saw this self-propelled mower on sales at the store for about the same price. So far, it's working perfectly.

Excellent Mower

My wife wanted a self propelled mower. I saw this one on clearance, checked it carefully and bought it. At home I put in the oil, fuelled it, and pulled the cord. It fired up on the first pull and continues to start the first time without priming or choking. Great machine!

Great mower!

This is a solid, well built mower. It starts the first or second pull every time. I love the self-propelled feature that really takes the work out of mowing. Would buy again.

I purchased the 109cc Gold Engine Craftsman mower 22 inch.

This is my first front wheel drive mower and it runs like a charm, almost pulls me along. The time to assemble was short and easy.

Just Purchased:

We have just purchased this mower, put it together, and did a small sample mowing, so we can not speak to most attributes. As the lady of the house, who does much of the mowing, my first concern was how uncomfortable the handles were. The red variable-speed self-propel bar needed considerable pull to join with the base handle, which puts it at maximum walking speed. Since I wish to walk slower, releasing it part way was awkward and uncomfortable, as I was grasping it with the first joint of my fingers. Ouch! After calling for support, and not finding any resolution, we decided to come up with our own solution to add a link to the drive wire. My former self-propelled mower had a trigger, rather than a pull bar handle, and was much more comfortable on my hands.

I had a pretty good experience with my previous lawn mower, it was craftman

This lawn mower is a self propelled motor but when we using it , we were having trouble with it going , it didn't want to go, we had to push it several times to mower the yard. it really surprised me because I use to have a craftsman mower for 18 years and didn't have any problems with it .

Self Propelled Mower

Beware of this mower. I do not recommend it. It starts on the first pull when it is cold but when the engine is hot it will not restart. You must wait an hour or more for the engine to cool down before it will restart. I have had this mower for over two years. I use it mainly for trim mowing. Since I mainly use it for trim, I have tolerated its shortcomings. I know that once I start it, I must finish mowing before I stop. If you bag your clippings, this mower will not work for you. When you stop to empty the bag, the mower will not restart without a long wait.

nice

The Craftsman 190cc Self-Propelled EZ Lawn Mower doesn?t offer anything new in way of technology or design, but it has some high quality finishes and excellent features.
In reviewing some of the best lawn mowers, the majority we looked at had a blade and cutting width of 20 or 21 inches. This self-propelled lawn mower has a swath of 22 inches, which is pretty stellar, and a 0.4-gallon fuel capacity. With that kind of cutting capability, you could mow your quarter-acre lawn in under 20 minutes and you could mow your neighbor?s yard, too, without breaking a sweat. You wouldn?t need to stop and empty your Grassbag either, as it has 2.3 cubic feet of clipping storage, which is also slightly above the average mower-bag capacity.
