  • I'm in Riding Lawn Mower Heaven!

    Mar 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A well built, safe, durable, lovable, lawn tractor. Riding this dream saves my legs.
    Cons: I really can't think of anything negative.

    Summary: Put me on a riding lawn mower and I’m a happy camper. I purchased my Sears Craftsman lawn tractor this month. Some people call it a riding lawn mower. My Craftsman is a Sears’s product. About this mower, it has ... read more

  • Review of 17HP 42inch Craftsman Lawn Mower (Rider)

    Aug 18, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Kohler engine. Reasonably priced.
    Cons: Tranny leaks & is expensive to replace. Crummy Sears replacement parts didn't last.

    Summary: After 8 years of cutting tough Texas grass and weeds, I have been fairly pleased but would not buy another one. With 2 acres of tough terrain and using it to pull smaller fallen trees, it has been through quite a bit. However, two issues cause me to ... read more

  • Sears tractors are fair at best

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It starts up and mows grass (although not well)
    Cons: It mows uneven (deck becomes unbalanced very easily), uses oil, drinks gas, & noisy

    Summary: You get what you pay for, or in this case you get less... Tractor worked ok (note I didn't say great, or awesome, or wonderful...) for the first couple of years. However my yard rarely looked that great as the deck would go out of balance so easily and ... read more

  • Good...for the price

    Pros: Good 2-year warranty
    Cons: Engine was hard to start until replaced Deck needs readjusting if front wheel hits anything

    Summary: I've had this lawn tractor for close to 3 years now. I use it to mow an acre during the warm months, and to snowplow the driveway in the snowy months. Engine/Starting: For the first 1.5 years, it was hard to start the engine. I'd have to use ... read more

  • Sears Craftsman 48" 23 HP Garden Tractor #917.275023

    Sep 25, 2005 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: We thought we were purchasing a lawn tractor to last many years, nice HP, etc.
    Cons: Terrible machine, less than 3 years of service. Sears didn't even try to help. BEWARE!!!

    Summary: Bought a Craftsman for the reputation we thought it had. Came with a 2 yr. warranty and then we purchased an extra year. After the third year, we let our purchased warranty expire. We have over 2 acres of grass to cut around our house and thought ... read more

  • This is a great mower

    Feb 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Kohler power, well built machine, price
    Cons: somewhat loud

    Summary: I have a local lawn care business and after bidding one rather large job, decided that I needed a larger mower. At the time I was running several small walk behinds, but this new yard job that I bid on would have taken around 6 hours to complete with ... read more

  • Amazing price / Smart design

    Oct 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality, aggressively priced, components are integrated very wisely, sharp turning radius.
    Cons: Lightweight steel but that's the same as higher $ brands.

    Summary: This should save you a ton of time. I drove around looking at all these brands. John Deere has lower priced product but you lose options. (No snowthrower attachment) It is said that Husqvarna mfr's this tractor. You can not buy anything like this in the ... read more

  • A great mower, Good quality and value

    Sep 5, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, tight turning, cuts very well, great parts supply
    Cons: splash oil sump, wimpy headlamps

    Summary: We purchased this mower from Sears in March 2003. It replaced an older 13HP Craftsman tractor. We bought Craftsman again because of the ease of getting parts and a good track record for reliability. Our old mower had the double-bagger, the new one has a ... read more

    Pros: Very solid product
    Cons: Possible defect with metal rods used to raise and lower the mower deck.

    Summary: I'm impressed with how well my Craftsman LT 2000 has held up considering I use it to mow a .85 acre yard. Easy to maintain, no engine problems. I have experienced one defect with the two metal arms that hold up the mower deck. They are used in ... read more

    Pros: engine starts great
    Cons: the floating assembly is held by two small bars that cant hold the weight

    Summary: My Sears Kohler 17hp runs like a charm, but during the first summer of owning it, two out of 4 tires went flat, without ever taking it out on the road, and the lift assembly for the deck broke off one side, then as soon as it was replaced, broke off ... read more
