If you have to have a rubber hose this will work great for you. You must know rubber hoses are heave, a a lot of ground friction when pulling across the grass. The hotter it gets the more elastic. Rubber hoses suck for home use. If you want a rubber hose you will like it. My hose is 2 years old and is like new.
Two months after purchase side of hose burst open rendering it worthless. Craftsman refuses to honor warranty and just gives you the run around, always transferring you to someone else. Sears says to contact Craftsman and Craftsman says to contact Sears. Junk and their lifetime warranty is a joke.
being the 2nd hose I buy from sears, the other was over 20 years ago. I was highly surprised on how “cheap” the actual hose feels. The previous hose I had actually felt like real rubber like tire rubber- this one feels like plastic. The one thing (aside from the lifetime warranty) is the actual connector to connect to the water line, feels and looks like it was made well and would last.
After a couple of weeks the hose starting developing pin holes leaking water. Tried contacting warranty due to store closing with no success. Very poor quality. I would not recommend this hose.
Quality is so bad made with cheap material. Can't even hold the minimum pressure got ripped from multiple spots within first-time use. Will not recommend anyone.
