We owned the mower for 45 days. Mowed with it 3 times.
During the 3rd mowing the gears of the self propelled system went out completely. We returned the mower to the company and were told the mower had to be shipped off for repairs. We were told we would be without a mower for 3 to 4 weeks. We had purchased an extended warranty and were told if we had problems the company would just issue a new mower.
But thats NOT what they decided to do when it came to fulfillment of their promise. DO NOT BUY A CRAFTSMAN MOWER!
