Craftsman 5.5 Torque Rating 21 in. 2 in 1 Deck Rear Bag Push Lawn Mower
I've had the Craftsman 2 in 1 (Model #37174) for a little while now and it has been a pretty reliable mower. This Craftsman mower still cuts nicely. This mower comes with a Briggs and Stratton engine and has 5.5 ft-lbs of gross torque. It has a 21" dome style and a 2 in 1 deck. Some of the construction is a little cheap with some of the plastic, but as long as you don't use it for too many rough jobs it should be fine.
When using this mower it is probably best to have a full gas tank when priming the mower. It works well with out the bag or with the bag. The cord is pretty easy to pull for start as long as you have it primed properly.
You might have a little trouble with the height settings staying in place for the wheels as the mower is not greatly constructed, but this mower is a cheap mower that has a good value for the price. Even though this mower is not meant for huge mowing jobs it usually can take on most projects.
In the case of any push mower it helps to have a little bit of strength when pushing, but most people should be fine as the mower rolls pretty nicely. The blade may need sharpening after a while of use but that is to be expected of a lot of mowers.
This mower stays true to the saying you get what you pay for, but in this case you actually get a pretty good value for what you pay for and maybe even could say you get a little more than what you pay for. While this mower is not meant for huge jobs (like most push mowers) it still will be able to accomplish most things you throw at it. I would recommend this lawn mower to anyone who is looking to get a normal mowing job done and looking for a little big of bang for their buck to go with it. This mower runs anywhere from $170 to $220 generally.
