For me speed is a problem. Bought a toro and had to return it. I would have to be a world class sprinter to use that unit. How fast is this unit? I am 80 yrs. old

Asked by: Running dog
When I fully engage the FWD it does move at a good pace, but it takes very little effort to gently engage the drive, which varies the drive speed. I use this every time, and for me it provides both fast and slow movement. I don't honestly use it at full speed very much, most of the time somewhere in-between.

Hi what do you mean by don't change oil

Asked by: Bouffon
Thank you for your question. Thanks to improvements in tolerance, filtering and operating temperatures oil changes are not required on this mower engine. Simply check the oil level before each use and top up with SAE10W30 as needed.

Craftsman - Self-Propelled 3-in-1 Mower - 159 cc - Steel - Red is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay Away from this one . Lemon right from the box . Issue with the start with the fresh premium gas . multiple pulls were needed to start the engine. Changed spark plug -little bit better . But - after 2 weeks of use there is another issue arrived- engine stall every 10 minutes of use and must be cooled before re-start . And - the Craftsman help center ( located in US ) actually have no idea where this monster need to be serviced in Canada - all service centers they gave me in Toronto have nothing to do with the "resurrected" Craftsman brand, previously belongs to Sears . At the end - I got the right place to go - MTD ( www.mtdproducts.ca ) despite the "Craftsman" brand not listed on their website -they agreed to check my 3 months old lawnmower . Hope they will be able to service it fast .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best value I bought this mower on sale for 320. after reading poor reviews on other mowers I decided to go with this one. this was the cheapest self propelled mower out there. the set up was easy only have to tighten two nuts for the handle. it comes with oil so you are ready to go. the mower is very powerful and had no problem with moderate grass. it will get bogged down if the grass is very thick but you should be mowing before then. it starts very easy on 1 pull. the self propelled worked reliably. I've used this twice with no problem. I don't know why anybody would pay 500 for other brands. this is also made in cleveland, ohio so I trust American made products a little more. for the price this is the best value out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Owned for several weeks now and used twice. Assemble was easy. Started on first pull. Cuts well and mechanics of the mower work good.The overall quality is ok but nothing like the old Craftsman lawn mower I had to just garbage. More plastic, lighter metals etc. That's why I only rated it as a four, time will tell, I cut a lot of grass so we will see how it holds up.
Date published: 2019-04-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So much easier! Apparently the passing of each summer means we're getting older and let's say less interested in pushing a heavy lawnmower. I used to enjoy cutting the grass, but it became less and less over the past few summers and it was because of having to push the lawnmower up even slight hills. SOOO, this self-propelled Craftsman is the bomb! It lets you have a crisp walk, not stroll, as it storms down the path. It's great. This is my third Craftsman and they're great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Self-Propel right from the box. I bought this 4 days ago. I assembled it as per instruction, It's not too complicated anyway. It started on the first pull. As i squeeze the Drive lever (it has the single drive lever), the front wheel seized. As i release, the wheel loosens up but it does not propel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and Overall a Great Mower Purchased this mower to replace my old Craftsman which served me well for 26 years. Treated myself to this front wheel drive model, and with two houses to maintain this feature alone makes this a great purchase.. After a quick setup it started on the first pull and has performed flawlessly for the 15 or 20 times I have use it thus far. Unlike my old mower this has no choke or engine speed to fiddle with, grass catcher much easier to remove and empty and the FWD along with the oversize rear wheels makes this much easier to maneuver.. By gently engaging the clutch I can vary the self propelled speed with enough power in the engine to drive the mower through very thick and heavy grass. Height adjustment much easier with only two levers controlling all 4 wheels. Considering the price, which is below other comparable products this mower is excellent value. So far performed without problems or concerns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good for the price Only had this mower for a short time after my last mower of 15 years (different make) rusted through the deck. I have used it twice on my 1500 square foot lawn (approximately) with no issues and no sweat either. Assembly was very easy, starts first pull every time with no priming or manual choke. Very economical as I have found that I use a lot less gas in this machine, and it's easy to adjust cut height. Front wheel drive takes all the hard work out of cutting the grass, and with the deck mounted hose adapter, clean up is a breeze as it only takes a couple of minutes to clean the underside of the deck after use. Don't know who makes the engine for this machine but it is very smooth and quiet (have read that it's either MTD or Husqvarna) let's hope it lasts as long as my old Briggs and Stratton engine. The only negative I have with this machine is the larger back wheels as it does make it harder to lift the front end to cut around tree's and flower beds (higher pivot point). I have found with same size rear wheels that lifting the front end is much easier. This mower is also quite heavy at almost 80lbs, but I find that the extra weight does keep it planted firmly on the ground and the fact that it's self propelled means that you don't notice the weight when in use. All in all a good quality mower at a reasonable price, highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new lawnmower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t do it Purchased last year, 2019. Ran fine for about 3 months then started surging, unloaded. Snow came. This year won’t start. Good luck finding service.
