Didn't last


Bought this mower about 2 years ago. The mower wouldn't stay on after about a month so I was able to get it replaced for free but Sears said they would not offer a replacement again regardless of how soon it failed again. The only hassle at this point was the time and gas spent taking it in and waiting for a replacement to be available. I used it about once a month for a year then even less often once we moved to a new house with a smaller yard about 10 months ago. Last month it wouldn't stay on again. I took it to a local shop and got the carburetor replaced and the engine tuned up (new spark plug, cleaned gas tank, new filter) for $60. It works fine now but I don't know how long it will stay in working condition. I know of people that have mowers working fine for years so I was disappointed that mine went out so quickly. I will never buy a mower with a Briggs and Stratton motor again. I believe I was offered and extended warranty which I should have purchased because the expense of repairing it seems like it will easily surpass the cost of the warranty. I wish the quality of this mower was better.

A good basic mower


I was given this mower by a neighbor. they purchased a self propelled model. It's a good basic mower that actually cuts very well. I have yet to have any issues with it after a few months of running it. As always use high octane gas, the ethanol destroys small engines. The higher the octane usually the less ethanol in it. I never have problems with the engine starting or the bagger getting clogged.

Lets see, first summer I owned this mower it quit working... Huge hassle trying to get the warranty to cover repairing a starting coil. Second summer, worked periodically when it felt like running... Third summer won't stay running for more than 1 minute at a time. Beyond garbage. Shame on Craftsman! Do not waste your time or money. Buy a different brand and save yourself the hassle and agony. My last lawn mower worked like a champ for over 10 years without needing repair, but then again, it wasn't a Craftsman so there's that...

Avoid Craftsman Lawn mowers


Bought this lawn mower back in Spring of 2016 and I've been working on it after the 10th lawn mowing. I had it all cleaned out in 2017 and placed it in storage. I have been working on it since Spring of 2018 and I will tell you it's not worth even one penny. The time spent to keep it running is not worth it. I've contacted Sears and they told me my warranty ran out one week ago and refused to fix a mower I have used 10 times. What piece of junk! I would not buy a gum ball from Sears as they don't stand behind the garbage they sell! Thanks for the lesson...don't buy from Sears! I recommend Honda lawn mower.
