Craftsman Rotary Lawn Mower

I purchase my Craftsman Lawnmower a year ago after I had purchased the electric start mower from Sears and had nothing but trouble with it. This mower however is good.

I have no problem with starting it and it is self propelled. It has rear bagging and is easy to attach the bag. It also is easy to change the cutting height.

It is self propelled by holdidng the control bar down while mowing. This really makes it easy to mow. on hard terrain You can also bag or have side discharging. I am a small female and I have found this to be the easiest power push mower on the market. The price is good and they stand by their product.

The model number is917 37673
65 Series Briggs & Stratton Engine Power Propelled 22" Multi Cut Mower

Easy to run and maneuver
by: Sheri

I have owned this lawn mower for over four years now and it is still going strong. The only work that has been done on this mower is general maintenance such as oil changes and blade sharpening. This lawn mower is power propelled which is a must for me.

As a petite woman with a hilly yard, I attempted to mow my lawn using a non-power propelled push mower and was physically unable to do so. This lawn mower has just the right amount of power propulsion at 5.5 horsepower, making pushing the mower easy, basically just walking behind the mower, but it does not go so fast I have to run after it. It is also fairly easy to turn around trees and other obstacles and maneuver between tight spaces.

This lawn mower has a 22” cutting deck, which cuts a pretty wide swath of grass, reducing time spent mowing. It can be used as a side discharge or a mulching mower by changing the mulching door to a discharge deflector for side discharge. I use the mulching feature to improve the health of my lawn.

Grass does tend to build up a little underneath the lawn mower when using the mulching feature, so a few times a year it is necessary to turn the lawn mower over and clean out the accumulated dried grass.

I am very happy with this lawn mower, I have a fairly large lawn and backyard and it makes it easy to trim the grass.
