    An old adage states that it's a "Woman's Prerogative". Your Wife will be more inclined to use the mower, if she likes it. Congratulations to the both of you.

    Kind of one of those "rock and a hard place" situations; get her what she wants knowing it is the wrong choice. We used John Deere mowers for years including an old 185 or close to that and it would still be running if mother in law hadn't passed away.

    We have a 265 that looks rough and has been used HARD, but it was running when we put it away a few years ago; don't remember how old that thing was.

    My dad had a Craftsman that lasted fairly well, but who knows who makes them now and his steered like a bear.

    I would have bought almost anything but a Craftsman mower

    Good Evenin Paul,
    Good luck with your new mower !

    I would not have bought a Craftsman, since a few of my neighbors have gonethrough at least two Craftsmans' and Im still using my 82 Wheel Horse...

    Just the same good luck with it !

    The old Sears garden tractor series were made by Roper and ranged from 10 to 18hp and were good tractors with a lot of available attachments. Their lawn tractors were made by Murray, MTD, and others and were not near the quality of the garden tractor line. The top of the line garden tractors either had cast iron Tecumseh engines or twin cylinder Onans. A long way from what they offer now.

    My dad's was one of the good ones I suppose, he got it many years ago, over twenty I believe or close when he could no longer use a push mower. His preference was his old self propelled Yazoo.

    If my wife had wanted to mow, I'd had gotten her anything she wanted...a goat or even a Craftsman.

    I tried to explain to the wife they are not like the old craftsman's she is used to.I have better luck trying to explain it to the dog at least he listens to me.Oh well.
