Great Product

This mower is not good for a "Mechanically Mentally Challenged" people. Most people who buy it and don't like it are most likely attempting to have it do more that its design limits. Answer: buy a bigger mower. But for a half acre or less its great. The only thing I didn't like about it was the "pain in the backside" reverse engine cutoff switch. This cuts the engine if you put it in reverse with the blade engaged. But a simple examine of the F/N/R shift rod showed me how it worked and an easy non-evasive solution to this problem - a piece of 3/8 in. plastic tubing three inches long placed over the shift rod to insulate it from touching the engine cutoff contact solved this problem. Once I engineered this, I then bought the mower. The transmission and clutch is a bit touchy until the mower gets broken-in a bit. But after a half of a season it runs very smooth. The mulcher (extra purchase) feature is great too.

Not Good

Does a good job cutting, but the motor was cutting out. Service man came out, ordered a carburetor. Hasn't installed yet, but it ran good enough so I was using it, something happened and now can't even get the motor to turn over. Taking it back to Sears, if they will give me a new one I will try it, but if not want my money back :-(

Mowing in reverse

Being able to mow while in reverse would be a big improvement to this product.

Riding Lawnmower

Great ride, quiet, and easy to handle. Second craftsman rider and do miss the shift on the fly feature that the old one had. But this one works just fine once I get used to shifting.

Hard to shift

This mower would be ok if the Forward, neutral and reverse gears wasn't between your legs. It has a very short shift lever which makes it awkard to locate and move. This could be solved with a longer shift lever and/or moving it to right or left of mower. This mower was expensive and this problem needs to be addressed because it makes it a little unsafe wrestling with the gears.

Great Product

This mower has proven to be an excellent purchase for our yard. It is the perfect size to fit through our fence gate in the back yard and has enough power to go up hills and has an amazing turning radius.

Small rear engine riding mower works well

It is a small riding mower that will fit through our fences so we can mow both the front and our side yards. It is good for this purpose but it will not mow in reverse. You have to take it out of mowing mode to go in reverse. It would be really nice to be able to mow in the reverse mode.

Very Disappointing

I do not post negative feedback, but this mower forced me to do it.Our first ever use of this mower was less than 60 minutes and the steering wheel broke loose. We contacted Sears and scheduled a tech 4 days later, between 12:00 and 4:00... the tech called 20 minuted after 4:00... I had to reschedule since I do have work to do... on Wednesday, he showed and up fixed it... he said the bolt was over torqued by the assembly team and broke... he was very pleasant person to deal with. Second use, 5 minutes into mowing and this mower completely died... no power nothing... Very frustrating and extremely disappointing... this is a brand new mower that couldn't finish my half acre lawn... I will return it to Sears for a complete refund...

When bigger isn't better. Smaller size - plenty of power.

I've owned at least a half-dozen riding mowers over the years. V-Twins with 52" mowing decks to just as bare-basic as the come. If you've got big acreage, you NEED a large, heavy-duty riding mower to get the job done in a timely manner. But there are major advantages to a smaller, lighter, more nimble machine. That's where the Craftsman mower really shines. Got to go through a narrow gate to get to the back yard? Down a sidewalk? A large size riding mower is pretty much useless. What I do especially like about the Craftsman is the 420cc engine that has plenty of power to cut through pretty high grass and get up my steeply sloped street. The body is light enough for me to pull it out of an unexpected and overgrown ditch. Mine started up instantly out of the box. Ran with authority and QUIET! Shifting from forward to reverse was a breeze. I believe that this is a Troybuilt product that has been up-engined with a more powerful motor and then re-branded as a Craftsman. The looks are sleek. The full pressure lubrication system and spin-on oil filter are a big plus for long-term durability. I recommend this riding mower as an excellent choice for lots up to an a acre or two.

Very nice machine

This is a very good mower. Assembly took me about 20 minutes. The machine cuts and rides like a breeze. Plenty of power for overweight people and small slopes.

I like it

I have a third of an acre of which about half is very hilly - about 10 degrees grade for about 24 feet. Previously had the Craftsman 10 HP Riding Mower which lasted 21 years without an oil change. (I don't like doing maintenance but I wished I'd have changed the oil at least once now). Against the best advice I purchased this one. It feels like it has slightly less power than the earlier one but it's far more manouverable. Has a small foot print in the garage which is a great point in its favor. Have used it 6 times in speed number 5; once hauling a leaf collector and five times cutting the grass; each time up and down the hills. It's done a good job. If I approach the hill head on it never hesitates; if I'm cutting across the slope and try to do a 90 degree turn up the slope it hesitates and then does it. I look forward to riding it on many sunny days in the future because my wife thinks i'm working. (but actually it's a pleasure - so I go over some spots twice).
