Craftsman does not mow on hills very good. Seems like it tips more easily than my old one. Fortunately my old one still works so when I mow the side yard that is very hilly I have to get out the old mower. Other than that very satisfied with this mower.

19 yrs and counting. Finally experiencing losing air in the tires. Regular maintenance and storage inside or covered is the key. Briggs 2 cylinder engine dependable and still on original spark plugs and belts despite weekly summertime use. First 2 winters plowed snow.

My riding mower is a Craftsman and a piece of $1900 crap. Ever since it was new, nothing but trouble. Main issue is the cutting deck and parts related to it. Something always breaking. So far repairs have cost well over $900, machine is 7 years old, in shop now/motor problems, may go to the dumps and not home... Depends on estimate. Next mower will be KUBOTA!

Bought this on clearance. Spindle broke and a few minor repairs. Wished it had hydrostatic transmission and more than 8 inch turning radius. A passable average mower with 46 inch deck.

I love my Craftsman tractor. It's dependable, durable, looks nice. The warranty is great. The service was great too. The price was better for what I was getting than other tractors.

For 6 years this rider has given me zero problems. Oil change each year and it has never let me down. Starts each time, cuts very good, had to replace the battery last year.

This had some odd “safety” items. Unless the clipping bag was 1/4” in line, the mower didn’t run. The mower didn’t mulch and would only work with the bag attached. Sears sold it and getting service was odd. You ordered a part, it would be shipped to you, then you called for service.

Some engine problems [carb issues], deck rusted thru, but wasn't cleaned after each mowing [hard to clean around center pulleys], brake issues, electrical issues [fuse block corroded even though it was covered]. But overall a good mower - cuts very good, always starts and good assortment of attachments.

Mower has a 30" cut which makes it ideal for smaller yards! Being a smaller size, it is very manageable around trees and other plantings. With the engine being in the rear it allows one to judge distances more easily.

Poorly manufactured. Parts are breaking. The welds are not done correctly and are falling off. The repair cost is too expensive. Recommended by lawn repair dealer. He also purchased one and returned it because of the problems.
