Description of the Craftsman Professional 21 inch Rear Wheel Drive

Adjust the height from one position to one of six height positions. This lawn mower comes with a 2.5 bushel grass catcher which also has a dust blocker. The dust blocker will be appreciated if you ever have to cut your lawn in dusty dry conditions, since it prevents the dust from exiting out the back of the grass catcher and hitting your legs.

Delivery: Most lawn mowers can be picked up in the store, however if you do not have the means to take it home yourself, delivery usually can be arranged for a delivery charge. You may want to consider borrowing a trailer or a van to bring home your lawn mower and avoid the delivery charge. Some vendors such as Home Depot, Lowes and others will rent a van to you by the hour to transport items purchased at their stores. The rates are quite reasonable.

Safety & Operation

All lawn mowers should be treated with respect. They are powerful machines and in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage. Start by reading the manual and following all of the safety guidelines outlined in the manual. Never work on the lawn mower without first ensuring that the engine is turned off.

While cutting the lawn and using the side discharge, never allow anyone to stand beside the discharge or point the discharge at something that could be damaged by high speed flying objects ejected from the lawn mower.

Always check the engine to make sure that there is sufficient oil in the engine before starting each day. Top up if necessary. Fill the fuel tank while the engine is cool. A good time to do this is before you start cutting the lawn. Fuel spills can sometimes cause fires. If you do spill any fuel, wait until it evaporates prior to starting the engine to avoid any chance of fire. Always fill the fuel tank outdoors.

Shut the engine off before removing the rear bag to empty it of grass or making any other kind of adjustments to the lawn mower.

Maintenance:

Maintenance of the lawn mower is pretty straight forward. Read the guidelines in the manual and follow them. Arrange to have your engine tuned up once a year and the oil changed at the same time. This applies to most consumer applications where you are cutting your lawn once a week. If you are using the lawn mower for commercial applications you may need to change the oil more often.

Keep the housing free of debris to avoid the acid from the grass causing the housing to deteriorate. Also keep grass from building up around the muffler to avoid the possibility of fire. Check the spark plug to ensure that it is not corroded and dirty. Replace if it is pitted. Always use clean fresh gasoline for your lawn mower. Following these tips and others in the manual will ensure that your lawn mower will last for many years.

Overall the reviews were very positive so it looks like the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower is a great lawn mower to consider for cutting your lawn. Feel free to add you own comments to this post.

Safety & Operation

The Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower has the standard rear start controls and lever that must be held down in order to keep the engine running. This lever is there for a reason. It prevents the operator from working on the engine or clearing grass or removing the rear bag while the engine is still running. Never try to circumvent this basic safety feature.

Operation is a simple pull the lever towards you, pull the start chord to start. There is no electric start on this lawn mower. If you plan to use the side discharge always operate the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower in a safe manner. Avoid aiming the discharge at other people, buildings or cars. Sharp objects may be expelled from time to time potentially causing harm to the object they hit.

Prior to starting each day check the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower for loose bolts, loose hardware and ensure that the rear bag is securely attached. Check the engine oil level to ensure there is sufficient oil in the engine in case there are leaks of some kind.

Maintenance

Maintenance of the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower is pretty straight forward. Always use fresh fuel and if the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower will not be used for several months consult the manual to determine the best approach. Some recommend draining the fuel tank while others will suggest adding fuel additives to preserve the fuel.

The oil should be changed on a regular basis on the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower. Consult the manual for instructions regarding how often and how to go about changing the oil. At minimum change the oil in the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower at least annually.

Maintenance on the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower is pretty simple, however not everyone is comfortable in performing even basic maintenance like oil changes. Consumers should take their lawn mower into a Sears / Craftsmen recognized maintenance facility to have their lawn mower maintained while under warranty. You may also want to get to know your local small engine mechanic, since you may obtain better prices and advice.

I look after my own Craftsmen lawn mower, however I have benefited from talking to a local small engine repair shop several times when I needed help with what I thought was a tricky repair. I have always purchased the parts I needed from him, even if they were a bit more expensive. The assistance I received more than offset the extra few dollars it cost me to purchase parts from his shop.

Craftsman Lawn Mower Review

January 2nd, 2010 ernie Posted in Craftsman No Comments »

Craftsman Lawn Mower ReviewWe have had a craftsman lawn mower for over 30 years, in fact it is the same mower and if that is not a testimonial to a product I do not know what is. I have only had to change the spark plug twice, clean and maintain the  carburetor twice and changed the oil every year. In fact it still does not burn oil but it is a bit black each year when I change it. We use the craftsman lawn mower every week from spring to fall.

The craftsman lawn mower model that we have is a rear bagger with the large wheels at the back to support the heavier weight of a bag full of grass.  I much prefer this type due the natural balance a full bag of grass on the back provides coupled with the larger wheels. These wheels are approximately 8 inch radius wheels. This type is a push mower with a 1.5 hp Briggs and Stratton engine. It is a two speed engine with a governor that increases the power as the load increases.

We still have the original wheels and bearings, although one of the axles is about to fall off. The weld were it joins the frame is getting a bit week, so I expect it will need repair next year. Not a major thing when you consider the age of this lawn mower. I did have to replace push bar after it broke at it’s weakest point.

Craftsman Lawn Mower Review – Parts

An important point about repairs for a craftsman lawn mower is that most parts are easily obtained either new or from older machines. In my case I went to our local small engine mechanic and I was able to find a new handle of a newer machine that someone had not bothered to maintain. He charged me $10 for the part and it worked perfectly. Pretty good deal vs. buying a new lawn mower. Lawn mowers are pretty straight forward and craftsman lawn mowers are no different. If you are at all hand with tools , most consumers can do the repairs themselves as long as they follow a few simple guidelines.

Whenever you fill the craftsman lawn mower with gas, turn it off first and be careful not to spill gasoline anywhere. If you do, wait till it evaporates before you start it again to avoid any possibility of fire. Changing the oil and sharpening the lawn mower blade require you to get underneath the lawn mower with your hands. Always disconnect the spark plug wire before doing any kind of work to avoid any serious accidents. If you follow these basic guidelines , most people will avoid any major accidents.

The craftsman lawn mower brand is one of the best. Some people may feel they are a bit more expensive, however based on the length of time I have had mine, I would have to say the extra money is worth it. Of course the new machines come with more safety features and these are important and should not be altered. For example you must hold a dead man bar down to the push handle to keep the engine going. This is done for a reason and that is to avoid any possibility of someone sticking their hands in the wrong place while the engine is running.

Selecting a Craftsman Lawn Mower

So how does one select one lawn mower over another? Of course you can compare all of the features and specifications. Horsepower, side or back discharge, mulching capability, height adjusters, grass catchers, folding handles, choke less engines  etc etc. Craftsman lawn mowers have all of these features, so what do you look at when making a purchase of a lawn mower?

Compare price, warranty, repair facilities and parts availability. Most of all compare reputation and feedback from friends and neighbors and articles and blogs such as this. You will get the best feedback from these people and help you avoid some of the less desired lawn mowers.

Craftsman lawn mowers excel in all of these areas.  Prices range from just over $100 to several hundred depending on power and features that you look for. A small lawn that you cut often does not need a large lawnmower. On the other hand a large lawn with several rolling grades may need a self propelled craftsman lawn mower with a mulching capability so you do not have to bag  and dispose of lots of grass.

Craftsman does have a large variety of lawn mowers to choose from, including push reel mowers without power, electric mowers, small gas mowers, mid range and larger machines that can run you as much as $1300 or more. Of course you can also purchase craftsman lawn mowers that are in the category of tractor mowers. Anyone with a large lawn of more than half an acre should consider one of these unless you are looking for lots of exercise, which is not a bad thing either.

Don’t forget the storage requirements of these larger craftsman lawn mowers. You will need a large shed to protect your investment as well.

Finally, change the oil every year, sharpen the lawn mower blade at the same time and keep up with all other maintenance requirements as they arise and you will have your craftsman lawn mower around for a long time.
