We have had our Craftsman riding mower since the 80's and have never had a problem with it. When we first got it, our son used it for his lawn service business quite often. Since he's gotten bigger, he now has 42 or 50 inch zero turn mowers. But we still have our faithful Craftsman and will have it until it quits and we can't get parts for it anymore. We mow about am acre and it does a fantastic job. I think when we are in need of a new one, we would definately buy another craftsman. I only hope a new one will be as good and last like this one.
