    Fortunately my wife had no real frame of reference or I may have been in the same boat.

    Just remember the old saw, "Momma ain't happy, nobody's happy". And "Yes Dear" always works.
    I can't control my day but I can control my attitude.

    The old John Deeres' are better than the old Craftsmans'
    The old Yazoos' were better than the Craftsmans'
    The dog is way better than any Craftsmans' anything.

    Make sure you keep the dog and keep the wife happy.

    ive got a 3-ish year old craftsman 26hp riding mower. it has been fantastic and trouble free. as much as i love old junk, and know that teh craftsman is not heavy duty, i really cant complain one bit. it mows the lawn., and i expect it too for quite some time

    What are your opinions.
    My last Craftsman lasted a whole 5 years.

    On a positive side, it does look nice.

    I heard that Sears will die in the next year or so, why invest in a high dollar lawn mower when they will not have stores to sell them in
