First problem was that there was no delivery available even though it was over the minimum dollar value required and the ad stated free delivery was available. The second problem was adding oil. No matter what size funnel I used it couldn't reach the filler tube. Evidently a funnel with a long flexible neck is required. I had to remove the plastic housing above the filler to access the filler tube. Once gas and oil were added -four primes and the engine started immediately
Mowed 25 feet of the yard and the engine seized up. Had to return it.
The two key nut and bolt to set the handle in place at the bottom were not in the package. Parts 88 and 89 were missing.
Mower started 1st pull! Terrible manuals (1for all mowers, 1 for all motors). Putting everything you make in one manual is NOT very usable by your customer.
I like the large back wheels
it makes all of the difference in handling, especially if there are grades and bumps
this lawn mower may be good for someone with a well manicured lawn (no rocks) as was using the mower it hit a rock and busted the bottom end and the 2 year full warranty it comes with does not cover anything like that don't think I will ever buy another craftsman push mower again
