This lawn mower does everything it promises. The 28” deck eats up lawn almost too fast. The 228cc engine is biggest in its class and does not bog down even in tall wet grass. It will go wherever you tell it to and will cut whatever you put in front of it. It takes up 75% less space than a rider plus you get manly satisfaction of actually appearing to push the thing around. I am totally satisfied with this mower in all categories. An unexpected perk is the 2 – 14” blades mulch very well so there is no need to ever bag or side discharge and because you are dealing with smaller blades they don’t suck up every stick and rock in the lawn and turn it into a projectile for your kids to dodge. I can’t wait until next weekend.

Poor Design

Overall, plenty of power but poorly designed. Only option is to use the mypace with no option to manually push or pull. Not able to back the mower up because the black debris flap gets sucked into the blade. The deck is slanted while the associated parts are straight - not sure who thought this was a good idea. The front end has about a foot with no cutting ability which makes it awkward when moving around my yard. I did not like this mower and returned it after one mow.

Never purchase anything from Sears


Worst buying experience ever and this request for a review proves it. I was a Craftsman owner since I can remember. Never again. I cancelled my order due to Sears inability to resolve my issue(s). Multiple representatives lied regarding delivery date and/or store pickup. Three representatives mislead me regarding the bagger being included. Bad customer service all around. I was disconnected multiple times (at least 4) when trying to transfer me to a "supervisor". To make matters worse, it took 13 days and 4 customer service interactions to get my money back. BEWARE!

Damage Upon Delivery But Sears Made Right


After opening the crate/box, realized the included oil package had leaked all over the accessory package and bottom of the machine, but no damage to the mower. Called Sears and they offered me a 5% discount to not return. That was fair, since I could clean up the mess and print a new Owner's Manual from the online PDF. I had my own 30W oil. Ran the mower around the yard and seems to run well. Still too cold and miserable in New England for grass to grow!

Best mower I have ever owned


Bought this mower 1 year ago and used it the entire season. Just pulled it out of winter storage, added fresh gas and it started on the first pull. Great power and performance. Yes it is a tank as others have said. Love the oil change feature, however the spray nozzle to clean under the deck is useless. I pull the cover off of the belt assembly and use the blower to get it clean. If the grass is wet, I put the hose on it when cool, let it dry and spray a little DW40. BTW the socket required to remove the blades is 15/16. Could not find that in the instruction book.

Best Mower Available


We have a large yard (15,000 sq feet or 1/3 acre) and mowing with a standard deck was miserable. This mower has decreased time by about half and allowed us to keep the bermuda shorter than we could before. The My Stride, one touch deck height adjustment, and mulching capabilities are amazing.
