Great Mower For Average Lots

This mower is fine for anyone who is a bit "mechanically challenged." I'm not a professional mechanic, although I CAN use a screwdriver & wrench, and I know how to read a manual. The other reviewer tried to be much to kind in saying that. This mower, like any other rider, is only unsuitable for the totally inept who won't pay a service person to maintain it. All mowers require regular maintenance by someone with basic know-how. Anyone who can't deal with this one should just pay a lawn service to cut the grass! This 30" rider built by MTD is a great mower, and is almost the same as several others they build for other brands (Cub Cadet, Snapper, and Troy-Bilt, etc). The Craftsman has a better engine that's more powerful and quieter than the Troy-Bilt, and has the features of the more expensive versions sold with other names. It's a perfect size for any lot under an acre. Darn few people with medium to small size yards need a 42" mower. This one is easy to use and is almost as maneuverable as a pricey zero-turn machine. All things considered, after one season of mowing, it's a really good value for the money. To respond to a few negative reviews I've seen- yes the clutch is a little jumpy, but it's easy to get used to it. Yes, you're supposed to stop the blade to mow in reverse, BUT I found a You-Tube video that showed how to fix that by diconnecting one wire. It only took about 15 seconds. My first oil change was a bit messy, but one trip to the local plumbing dept at the hardware store remedied that problem forever. The shifter for forward & reverse is a bit inconvenient, but designed for your safety and not that bad. My yard is a tad too big for a guy my age to push-mow, but too small to warrant a tractor. This mower is the perfect size for me, and any minor flaws are far outweighed by its advantages.

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 :-(

Starting mower

I just got my mower last week. I did everything like the book said. I just turn the key over and nothing. Do you think the battery is dead? Or something else
