Worth it

I bought the green electric machine for 1/2 the price and it was a huge mistake. I constantly had to stop and unclug it in the mulch setting, had a much more narrow cutting path, and got caught up on taller, denser grass patches. Paying double for the Craftsman (with Sears 3 year warranty) gave me a machine that I estimate was three or four times better (if that makes any sense) than the green machine. Yes, it still gets caught up in thick and tall grass patches but it is easily remedied when you give the machine a few seconds to start up again before hitting the thick patch again. I only had to stop machine once, twice at most, a session over my yard. I am happy to deal with the hassle of the cord and cleaning it out (unplug first as safety is paramount) once instead of dealing with gasoline (will New Jersey be getting a higher gas tax?), oil, oil changes, cold starts, gas smell permeating throughout the storage unit, etc. The biggest issue was holding down the handle to keep the blades engaged. Another reviewer commented about the strength needed to hold it down and she was not exaggerating. I consider myself a strong guy and pretty handsome to boot, but holding that mechanism down is strenuous after going at it for awhile. I recommend playing with the handle until you find the sweet spot where it is as bearable as you can get it (but it's never comfortable). Another hot tip is throwing the extension cord over your shoulder so you dealing with it less. I am a repeat buyer as my last one conked out after about nine years. It was cheaper and smaller but my yard was smaller. I am hoping for at least 7 years on this one and I will say it would have been well worth it.

Worked well, for one season.

I used this for the mowing season of 2015; went to start it up for this year and 20 minutes later, it became a doorstop. As the minutes passed on the first mow, the blade turned slower and slower, which is not good for cutting grass. Luckily, I bought the protection plan and received a full refund.

Very disappointed,


This is the 3rd Craftsman I bought over the years. I always loved them the only reason the last one broke is because my husband run over a pipe.
I do not like this new one at all it is cumbersome to move around due to the solid "collection" bag. The rear exhausted door does not fit over the collection bag to stop the cuttings from flying towards the operator meaning me, I was covered with dust and grass clippings and sneezing my head off. It was the only model I could find.

Great little mower


I bought a higher list price Worx mower first. List price was higher so I thought it had to be better. Even though I usually bought Craftsman and I I had no experience with Worx. I had see it around for a while. Biggest mistake I could have made. The Worx burned out during the first day I used it. I called the Worx 800 number hoping to get some help. Another mistake. They said take it back to KMart. They will give you a refund. I did just that and bought a similar craftsman mower. Both are corded electric. The craftsman is great. Use it every week. Cuts great, no problems. This list price just tells you how much they want you to think it sells for. Worx puts a high list price so they can give you a big discount. Marketing trick that I fell for.

DO not purchase


I bought this mower in 2015 and it worked well until July 2017 and the motor quit. You can no longer get a motor from Sears for this mower. It is sad because I like the mower and it had great power.
