My Yard just got smaller

Cut 2 acres quickly. Can cut in reverse which is very helpful. Also, I can get off and clear pathway while engine continues to run. No speed gears, you just press the gas pedel. Let off the gas pedal and it stops on a dime.

DON"T BUY THIS UNLESS You want constant maintenance

The front steering parts are not designed for the Turn Tight function. The 24 HP motor when turning tight is so power it pushes the motor straight ahead so your turned front wheels drag straight more than turning. I have had this mower for one year and have replaced the front wheel bearings three times and now I am having to replace the tire rim , all bearings and steering arms. I would totally not recommend this tractor and would recommend for this money buying a competent competitive model. Sears customer service is a joke and their Richmond VA Parts Center Staff is terrible. I promise this will be my last Craftsman Item I ever buy. DONT BUY THIS or any other Craftsman mower. PS They are made by there competitors.

Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.



The lawn tractor is a good tractor but at 2 different Sears stores the Sales associates tell you the warranty will cover replacing blades and belts once a year and will replace a seat if it tears then when you call the service center and ask for the 40 hour maintenance and they tell you the Sales associate was wrong that normal wear and tear is not covered under the warranty. The sales associates at both places said they would even fix the flats for free. None of this was true. The 2 stores was Pampa and Amarillo

Can't even get it delivered


Ordered this almost 8 weeks ago,it was supposed to be delivered in 4 days. Got a call today telling me it won't be here for 3-4 more weeks. NO WAY. Couldn't understand the ppl on the phone. Speak English please. No wonder Sears stores are failing. Couldn't get to anyone for help.

Bought this about two years ago. Paid a lot for it. Went to use it this spring for the first time and it wouldn't drive. Runs OK but won't drive. Called for service and they couldn't come for two weeks. Arrived and told me the transaxle was shot and they would have to order to the tune of $819.00. Called them back and told them to get it and replace it. Was told that they couldn't return for three weeks. Grass is getting extremely high. Three weeks passed, guy shows up without part. This is BS. This mower is a Husqevarna? On their website their warranty is 3 yrs. Sears warranty is two years for same exact mower. I guess this shows why Sears is about to go under. They lost me for a customer after fifty years.

Avoid if you have anything over 1 acre


While appearing nice at the surface, this is way too much tractor for the frame and steering system. The tight-turn feature is way too fragile for this size tractor. I've had mine for 4 years and have had to replace tie rods twice, wheel bushings 5 times, steering bushings twice, and the drag link one time. The latest problem that I have is a cracked frame, right before the transaxle. Even though the frame is still under warranty, Sears will not do anything more than provide me with a new frame and charge me for the labor to install ($261), even though the warranty in my manual clearly states that they will provide a FREE repair to a failed frame. Due to their refusal to stand by their product, I will never purchase another item from Sears again, which is a shame.
