Craftsman Rotary Lawn Mower, 675 Series
by B. Burton
We received this lawn mower as a gift about 6 months ago, and have been very satisfied with it. Thus far, it has been reliable, starts and runs easily, and gets the job done quickly! This is a 21 inch multi cut mower, with a Briggs and Stratton Engine from Sears.
The mower has typical features, including adjustable cutting height, handle height, and engine speed, and the handle can be folded down for easier storage. The Craftsman Rotary Lawnmower is capable of mulching, rear bagging, and side discharging of clippings.
The cost of this mower was moderate, in the $250-$350 price range, and it would be satisfactory for any general lawn or yard mowing needs. We have used it on various heights and thicknesses of grass, and never had any problems with it making clean cuts and completing the work as needed. Even when mowing tall, wet grass, the mower has not clogged.
The bag is easy to remove and attach, making it quick and easy to dump out clippings as necessary while mowing. The mower itself is fairly lightweight and easy to move around, but is also durable. We have kept it outside and it has weathered well, still starting and running easily whenever it is needed.
It does require general maintenance, but nothing more than regular oil addition and overall inspection of its running parts and tires. In general, we are very satisfied with this Craftsman Rotary Lawnmower, and would certainly recommend it to anyone who needs a good, everyday lawnmower to do light to moderate work in the lawn and garden.
