The Craftsman Rear Wheel Drive 21″ Lawn Mower 37108 comes with a 175 cc Briggs and Stratton engine, the work horse of the Sears lawn mowers for many years. It is a 3 in 1 system allowing bagging, mulching and side discharge of the grass clippings giving you lots of options when cutting your grass.
The grass catcher bag is 2.5 bushels in capacity and comes with a dust blocker to protect you from the dust that is sometimes picked up by the lawn mower in dry dusty conditions. This dust blocker will also stop small objects from penetrating through the bag as well. Propulsion is via the rear wheels which are 9 inch ball bearing wheels. With the grass catching bag on the bag, this provides an excellent counter balance to the weight of the lawn mower.
Although only 21 inches wide, this lawn mower is fine for most consumers with an average sized lawn and it is also easy to store since it has a 21 inch wide foot print and the handles also fold for easy storage in compact spaces. Read below for more features.

Description of the Craftsman Rear Wheel Drive 21″ Lawn Mower 37108

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.
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 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.
