Easy to assemble with instructions provided. Oil Fill sout readily accessible. Small gas tank but it runs for almost two hours on that small amount! Used Three times already and, so for, has started on the first pull every time! Easy to adjust the hieght, and, best of all, an all-metal deck that the wheels are attached to - none of this cheap plastic ****! Engine has sufficient torque to get through overgrown weeds and very light brush. Mulches OK but I'm going to probably buy a better blade nest week. This all-purpose blade just doesn't seem to mulch as well as I would like! Tweeked the throttle cab,le just a bit to get more RPM than the factory-installed setting so that I could zip right through my light brush. For what I paid for this mower, it's outstanding! You want a better mower? You'll probably have to spend $400.00 on up! I'm happy!
I bought the earlier version of this mower in 2013 After 1 year gas cap would not tighten. Every time I use it gas spills out the top making for a safety hazard. Craftsman/Sears will not stand behind their product. Major Safety issue. Should be recalled
Easy to adjust wheel heights and use with or without the bag.
I would have given this mower five stars if it were not for quality control errors out of the box.The rear wheel height adjustment levers would not stay engaged.I was able to bend them inward to correct the problem.Also,the handle loop for the pull cord was missing. I returned to Sears and was given one from the demo model.That being said,the mower has been terrific.The Kohler OHV engine is very powerful and never stalls,even in high grass.The autochoke comes as advertised and the mower starts on the first or second pull.It is easily maneuverable and gives a great cut.Overall,I am very happy with this mower and would recommend it.
Great came just in time
Just what I needed for my back lawn.
