Pros: Dependable, Versatile and Easy to Use
Summary: When I moved from MA to NH a couple of years ago and more than doubled the size of my yard, I dreaded the yard work. The lawn seemed enormous and the numerous oak trees that lined the perimeter of the lot rained leaves, acorns and dead branches at a ... read more

Pros: Smooth, powerful v-twin engine, convenient hydro trans, reasonable price
Cons: cut quality, transmission is jerky on up/down slopes
Summary: I average 65 hours per year mowing about 2-3 sloped acres of pasture land (future homesite) and pulling a cart or a broadcast spreader. The Craftsman's positives include the reasonable price, the smooth and powerful 20hp V-twin engine, 4+ hrs per tank ... read more

Pros: Cushy seat, freaky torque at higher gear settings, easy component access for the do-it-yourselfer.
Cons: Flimsy, overpriced replacement parts from Sears, crummy headlamps, transmission sticky, small capacity gas tank
Summary: I loved the forest green body and the features matched up with much more expensive mowers. The mower I purchased was on sale at Sears for a bit under $1200. The price was unbeatable for a major-brand mower that provided more that 18HP. I was planning ... read more

Pros: It's a reliable mower.

Pros: Plenty of power for hauling. AT is great. Accomodates several attachments.
Cons: Uneven cut. Loud. Backfires with any shift in the seat.
Summary: I had my last Craftsman for over 16 years and it cut great so I didn't hesitate to buy a new one last year. My brother bought one also on my recommendation. Both his tractor and mine, as well as another brothers neighbor who also bought a new Craftsman ... read more

Pros: Drove nice, rode nice and mowed nice. Also did nice job pushing snow in winter.
Cons: Sometime hard to start and engine didn't last
Summary: After just 4 years of use, mowing a lawn of about .5 acres, a rod went out of the engine. Cost to replace according to Sears, $1500 plus labor. Cost of new mower about the same or less. Gee, should I replace or buy new? Then again, why buy this ... read more

Pros: Kohler Pro engine is a workhorse.
Cons: Craftsman Deck won't take the use it should.
Summary: Our hilly property made the Kohler Pro the only choice for us in the craftsman line. This tractor has plenty of pull and power on our tuff turf. I am very pleased with its performance in the past 2 years. Addition of a garden cart makes a great tool to ... read more
