Got this mower home and did the required preparations. Added oil and fuel as normal. One pull and it started to run so easily. This is a great mower with adjustments to height and a size to fit into most tight spaces.
BUYER BEWARE!!! I purchased this lawnmower 3/31/16. It lasted just over 90 days before it stopped working. Took for repair. The repair ticket cited issues with the carburetor as the problem. Had it "fixed." The day after getting it back from repair, I attempted to mow the grass. I was less than half done with a 1/4 acre lot, and it stopped working...AGAIN!!! Very disappointed in this Craftsman lawnmower. Expected a lot more from a Craftsman. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
had a couple of problems but got them fixed and no more problems
Bought july of last year used about 5 times. Wont start this year...needs a new carburetor!
I use it for trimming, It starts easy and no problems with it!
Good dependable little mower. Great for trim work.
It is very difficult to start. I have to have my husband start it for me if I am the one mowing the lawn. Very Frustrating.
