    I’ve owned this for almost a year. Bought this as I’m a single gal trying to be self sufficient. Already had an older, heavier, gas mower that was leaking gas but still worked. I just need a small mower for a small enclosed area where my pets enjoy the outdoors. Considered this brand cuz I already owned a weed wacker & leaf blower of this brand, both battery operated (with interchangeable batteries). Reviews on btty one were a bit weak so went with electric one. And soooo easy to start…no cord to pull! Lite weight too. Takes a bit to get used to the cord, but not bad. I run it approx 30 minutes & the cord has never gotten hot. Easy to put together, few parts. It’s soooo much plastic & the sound of it (not running) sounds like a kids toy…lol. But the power of it is very impressive both for cutting grass & mulching leaves/clippings). Not as noisy either. Yea it’s plastic, but I expect I’ll get my money out of it. And having it delivered to my front door versus loading one up in my car from a box store was a big win too.

    Easy to assemble light weight, the handle On top of the mower is a plus for lifting when needed. Changing the cutting height on it wasn’t difficult at all..
    cutting through high weeds was a breeze just remember to change the height level to 6.
    I bought a push manual grass cutter but that wasn’t doing the job! So decided to buy this and I’m so glad I did.

    “Make sure to buy extension cord you will need it in order to use it.“

    “This is a must buy if you’re looking for a corded lawn mower “

    Fast delivery too!!

    I purchesed the same mower 10 years ago, it was a great mower.All that was wrong was the base, If they would use a stainless steel base instead of the cheep metal as are still used on most mowers , it would be like new. The new one has a problem with storage. You can’t fold away the handle , the front wheels are too small and light, hard to push the mower, even as I cut the grass a week ago with my old Craftsman.
    The old handle with power connection was fine, why make it bad?
    This mower is light and I wonder howit works over time.

    Piece of cake to put together ladies 😊 light weight, easy to push, I still do my own lawns and I’m at retirement age. With the gas shortage, the electric mower is the perfect choice!

    Just finished assembling my new Craftsman lawnmower and it took me only about 45 minutes. My son is an experienced handyman and probably could have done it in ten or less! I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t have to put the wheels on and was able to roll it out of the delivery crate. The box was badly crumpled on one side which made me a little nervous but there didn’t seem to be any damage to the mower inside. It arrived very quickly for the regular free shipping, taking about 48 hours from putting the order in. You don’t need to pay extra substantial fees to get faster delivery in all probability.

    The assembly instructions were relatively clear but most of it was common-sense [25%] assuming you have ever assembled anything and the rest was the politically-correct nonsense mandated by insurance companies for the mechanically-disinclined. I was really pleased to see, that unlike most modern products these days, the instructions were in English that was coherent and easy to read.

    I now see what some of the reviewers meant about the plastic construction [even the wheels] making it seem ‘cheap’ compared to the units I had twenty years ago though, to be fair, it certainly doesn’t look or feel flimsy like a toy would. It helped that my son is a licensed mechanic and had told me, after I had read a lot of reviews before ordering, that modern industrial plastics are often as durable as cheaper grades of metal.

    Speaking of light construction; it has a carrying handle and I was able to use that to lift it fairly easily down to the pavement so that was nice for this old fellow. I don’t think it weighs much more than about 30 lbs and the carrying handle is actually at a balance point for lifting purposes. Also nice that you can adjust the height of the cut with a lever on the side instead of the old style machines that needed you to turn it upside down and use pliers on nuts and bolts and make sure both sides were plumb.

    Too early to review it’s quality as an actually grass mower but I’m ready to save a little money this year instead of hiring a lawn cutting service as I have done for the last few years. I may update this review after I have used it but wanted to put this in early in case other senior citizens were wondering about weight and assembly issues.

    I bought this to replace a Black & Decker electric corded mower, which lasted 15 years. In order to run this Craftsman I had to buy a new cord, 12 gauge, 3 prong, with 16 amp capacity to use on a 100′ yard. The mower itself is lightweight plastic, but when you run the required cord, the weight of a 100′ 12 gauge cord is substantial when dragging it across the backyard. This makes the job of using a corded mower much more of a hassle, something I never expected when I bought it. My B&D ran on a much lighter cord without a problem.

    Then there is the motor. It will run for about 10 minutes then it cuts out. You hear a click which sounds like it is coming from the control mechanism. It will restart immediately but the constant cutting out is an issue and should not be happening, especially given the premium cord I am using.

    In retrospect, I should have stepped up to a battery powered mower. Cannot recommend this product.

    Perfect size mower for a small to medium sized lawn. Avoid the hassles of li-ion batteries and just choose a plug in mower. Choose the 100 foot extension cord that Amazon notes is most often bought together with the mower. Excellent design, with new safety features. Mower is relatively quiet and leaves your lawn with a golf-course smooth appearance because it’s so light weight. Takes about 20 minutes to assemble.

    My 7 year old off brand electric mower died a slow death. So after much research I got this Craftsman mower. I didn’t realize how much easier life could be. My old mower was ok but seriously underpowered for the crabgrass and weeds that make up my big back yard. This Craftsman is 12 amps. Between the time my old mower died and my new one arrived, it was almost a month and several rainstorms later. This yard normaly gets mowed twice a week so by the time I got the Craftsman the weeds and crabgrass were knee high in some places. I thot about using the Weedeater to knock it down some but hey, what a test of a new mower. Ended up being pleasantly surprised. I could only do about a 4 inch swath each round, I had to empty the bag about every 10 or 12 feet and it did bog down a few times. But we’re talking about knee high weeds here. I’ve had the same results using my nieghbor’s expensive hi powered gas mower several years ago. And unbeknownst to me, the grass wasn’t as dry as I thot it was.
    It took 2 days (I had to quit due to the heat) but I got it done. A week later I mowed again and was amazed at how much easier it was than with my old mower. I cut a full 20 inch swath. This one is bigger, more powerful and the grass bag holds a really decent amount of clippings. And it’s way easy to put on and take off. My dogs like to pick up sticks and break them into pieces and leave them everywhere. The Craftsman hit these hidden gems and blasted right thru them. I have trumpet vine springing up everywhere. No problem, chewed them up and spit them out. My front yard is small and has mostly Burmuda and Buffalo grass and a million little sticks from the trees. I finished it in less than half the time it used to take. Going from a twelve inch wide cut to a 20 makes a world of difference. And this mower has the power to do it.
    I’ve only mowed 3 times with this, so time will tell. Since it is a Craftsman, I can get parts and service if I need it. I can mow one handed if I want to manage the cord with the other. Its lightweight enough to toss in the back of my SUV if need be. (And I’m a 67 year old woman with bad knees) My only complaint is supposedly you can break down the handle and store it under a shelf. Technically this is true, but the reality its it’s kind of a pain in the ass to undue the screws. So I probably won’t be doing that. It kinda sucks because that was one reason I bought this model, but hey, that’s my problem. It is rather loud but not as bad as a gas mower.
    All in all I’m very happy with it. It was easy to assemble right outta the box. Just be sure to have the proper gauge extention cord (I think mine is a 12 gauge, 50 feet long) and 10 minutes after you open the box, you’ll be mowing!!

    My Greenworks mower stopped working yesterday for the umpteenth time in 3 years. (Starter issue that I have fixed many times, even replacing the starter assembly 6 months ago, but is a royal pain and I’m done.) After a day of reading reviews of different brands at Amazon and Home Depot, I decided to go with the Craftsman due to reputation and next day delivery instead of a week or 10 days – my grass is growing fast due to recent rains. I figured it would come too late today to mow given that I ordered in the afternoon, but it arrived mid morning! I attached the upper handle, plugged it in and mowed by back yard, and it’s not even noon! Fingers crossed this is as reliable as other Craftsman products I’ve had in the past.

    As a first time lawn mower I wanted something that I could get the hang of pretty fast. This was it!

    I could not have had a better first experience. It came ahead of time befor I was hosting my party. It was VERY easy to assemble. In fact it took me less than five minutes and off I went. The wheels were very sturdy and moved thru pretty rough grass. I had the setting all the way low. If I had anything negative to say it would be turning was a little tough.

    If you were concerned about the plug, I would say it was not a deal at all. If your going straight across its not in the way at all.

    Definitely recommend for new lawn mowers

    It’s perfect for my 1/4 acre yard. Cuts very fast and its maneuverable due to its light weight. I have a B&D, which just burnt and so far, I was not able to repair it. It may have the same mechanism as Craftsman- same company, but it is heavier. There was some misunderstanding because of manual’s vagueness about “safety shield”, which is actually a deflector for side discharge. Of course, you don’t have to use it if you just mulch the grass. It took some time to get used to the folding of handles, especially the lower one – all plastic. The rear door with a pouch is a new concept – it works well and obviates the necessity of using a mulch insert (B&D). The design is nice and sporty. It was a good buy and hopefully it will last longer than it’s B&D counterpart.

    The mower was easy to unpack and put together. Easy peasy even for this old lady. My last mower died and my grass was getting really tall by the time I saved up to get this one. No problem with this little dynamo. It’s lightweight but cuts great. I’m elderly with arthritis and I can easily use this mower. I’ve used it several times now and each time was easy for me to cut my grass and weeds. I can’t seem to grow flowers but I’m a whizz with weeds! 😉 So ladies and gents, I think you will find this one a winner.
