my first craftsman,i love it

i bougt this from my hometown store in alma,mi.did a lot of research,before buying,i put 70 hrs on it in 2 seasons,got it in march 2014,this one has the hydro gear aluminum transaxle,not plastic.19 hp briggs has plenty of power,starts good ,runs great,i use seafoam in the gas during winter,i start it every week during winter,i live in mid michigan,went out there when it was zero,just turned key ,fired right up,i do not plow snow with it only mow my rogh 2 acre country lawn ,it cuts great ,i hit mole hills with it,and it takes a beating,its built by the people who make orange ones ,huskqvarna for sears,its a good no frills tractor,blades and belts and filters ,etc.can be found everywhere online or at sears,or farm stores,it has a little vibration at slow rpms,its a single cylinder they all do that,but much improved from my old cubs and case,and w. horse,from the 70,s.they would really vibrate,just like my old 292 yamaha single cyl/ would,so pay more and get a twin,no vibes with them,at running rpms full throttle it is smooth,there designed to run full speed.i read reviews about people saying they shake,run them wide open and they wont.turn tight is excellant,almost like a zero turn,it used to take me 2.5 hrs with my old garden tractors from the 70,s,now i can do it in 1 hour.i also have a gc2400 for all my h.d. needs,t2400 just for mowing,the gc2400 is 3 cly. diesel 18hp.t2400 19hp, single cyl.hhmm.i got a good online price match at my local store great people.very happy with it,no problems at all.easy maintence.sealed bearings on the deck,just grease your wheels and spindles and axle ,use genuine briggs oil and filters,thise thing will easily go 20 yrs or more.thank you sears.

Real disappointed

I bought this tractor becuase I have always had pretty good luck with craftsman. I have 2 other riding mowers ,one is a 2000 model the other is a 1999 I think. They have their quirks but they are still good. I figured it was time for a new one so I bit the bullet. I got the mower home waited a few days, bad weather, got the mower out did everything by the owners manual, started it up and it purred like a kitten drove it around and said yea this is a ticket! I went to check the cutting height of the deck and low and behold,this thing only cuts 3 heights, down to the dirt, a little higher and almost where I need it out of 6 positions. I gave it a shot and adjusted the anti scalping wheels (the lowest hole) well it cut great but the vibration when you engage the blade and start cutting is going to shake the mower apart. I thought I could deal with the height setting but the vibration is out of this world.My old mowers don't vibrate like this and they are old. The speed is not what you would think it would be either. I got the trailer hooked up and going to take it back I can't believe the vibration, if you were to put a can soda, or other beverage in the cup holder it will empty the can.

So far so good


I bought it at a good price, $1,430 with tax. I had a hard time getting help though while in Sears but I finally found a guy and I made the purchase. It was loaded into my truck in no time but on the trip home I began thinking that they did not hand me the owner's manual or keys. I thought maybe under the seat or hood but none when I returned home. Apparently it isn't unusual. I returned to Sears and after quite a bit of searching they found one that worked along with the manuals. I returned home and it ran great for the first cut. It is not the same controls as my older Deere but I will get used to it. So far so good.

Awesome Mower


I purchased this mower as a replacement, glad I did. I weigh a little over 300 lbs and it will fly with me on cut time and wide deck make cutting a few acres easy.Highly recommended.

Sears needs to rethink at the location of the gas tanks.


Really like the "tight" turn feature. Like the features of the mower but have two things that could be improved. (1) Filling the gas tank is not nearly as easy as on the older Craftsman I had and there is no gauge (the old one had a gauge). Is easy to overflow since the gas can, when pouring, makes it difficult to see the opening of the gas tank and the tank itself is not clear enough to see the gas level through it. (2) Mower is not as smooth running with the blades engaged as I would have thought. Seems like something isn't balanced.
