Mr
I cut over 5 acres with a Craftsman PGT9000 with 54" deck, but around the house, it is way to big to get around my wife's plants. So really I got it for my wife to use around the house and her plants. She has had no problems with it of any kind, and it was used every week since May till last month.

The only thing I dislike about it, is the deck is hung from the frame, and is not free floating, so if the mower it at a angle, the cut will be at a angle. Not really a problem, as around the... more

Worst Mower I Ever Had
I purchased this mower as a new model which just came out in 2012. The first year was okay, only I didn't like that you couldn't mow in reverse. You even had to disengage the blades while in neutral to back up, and then restart them when you shift from neutral to whatever gear you choose. At the start of mowing season I needed a new battery. This battery was so jammed in it was unreal. No one at the Sears outlet store knew how to take the battery out. So I called the Sears help line on the web.... more

8 Service Calls And Counting
Do not buy this mower. I have had it approximately 2 years and have had 8 service calls and they still will not replace it. What has become of Sears reliability and standing behind their products?.. If someone has to call this many times doesn't common sense say it should be replaced?...

Terrible product, terrible service and totally shabby Sears.

Mr.
The clutch is a real neck snapper.
The wheels give a really rough ride, on all but the smoothest lawns.
Had to have the repairman start it.
He almost burned out the starter before realizing the carburetor was not adjusted from the factory.

Great Mower
The only problem I have is the the catcher. No store carries it in stock. You must order and then wait 10 days to see what you got.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations
