I have had this for 6 months now. I absolutely love using it and my neighbors are jealous. I have a half acre property and pull an aerator with it, and use the mulching attachment. It has sufficient power for all of that but would not recommend for anything too large or farming type requirements. I like that it is narrow and fits between my gates. My only issue with it is that the outside is cheap plastic, and it arrived scratched from shipping. But it works great, and the plastic parts are more cosmetic.
this is very good item, I like it a lot, but the front tires seem to go bad in the side walls, I've had other mowers and tractors, and i've never seen tires do this before ?
I'm satisfied with the machine
i would have like't it to move a little slower in 1st gear
I bought this mower in 2014 and it runs great. If you have a flat yard this is the mower for you. If you are like me with uneven and sloped yard this feels like you are going to tip over. There is no suspension. If you hit a gopher hole the mower tips and you end up with a wheel in the air and no traction. I love the rear engine. It gives you clear vision of where you are going. I hate the shift **** is between your legs and is awkward for me. I found a youtube video on line on how to disengage the safety feature that kills the engine if you try to reverse with blades engaged. That was annoying have to disengage the blades every time you needed to back up,
We were so excited to get this lawn mower! Craftsman make such great products and we got such a great deal on it. I would say it was a definite ******** for us! If you are looking for a new riding mower you honestly can't go wrong.
