This mowing machine is one of our favorites as it includes many features that make it efficient, durable, and convenient to use on any type of terrain.
If you are looking for a mowing machine that will simply cut the grass, you can get any model. But if you are looking for a special model that will offer you ultimate comfort, performance, easy handling, precision, and the latest features, then the Craftsman 190cc all-wheel is what you need. Designed to have the job done in a short time and with minimum effort from the user, it features the latest technology and options that make it a great choice for any type and size of terrain and all for an affordable price.
This is a gas powered unit with a 190cc 725 Briggs&Stratton Platinum Series engine that is powerful enough to successfully landscape wide areas without you having to put in much effort. The recoil start makes sure the engine starts immediately every time you need to use the machine and the Smooth Start technology makes the starting easier to pull, saving your back and shoulders from excessive strain. This model features an all-wheel drive to minimize your work and to help the unit handle any type of terrain, be it straight or sloped.
One of the most important features of this model is the fact that it is very easy to maneuver thanks to the self-propelling and the all-wheel drive that make mowing easier than ever. Also, the dual trigger with variable speeds lets you adjust the speed of the unit according to the type of terrain and the height of the grass. The 22” deck is made of strong and durable stainless steel and it features a sharp blade that can be adjusted in one of the 8 cutting positions from 1-1/4″ to 3-1/2″ by pulling a lever that adjusts all the wheels to a certain height, to assure an even and clean cut of the grass no matter the type of the terrain. It gathers the grass in the 2.3 cubic feet Dustblocker grass bag attached to it that also retains the dust and debris, keeping them from spreading in the air while you are mowing. The bag is easy to remove and re-attach without making a mess when you want to empty it, and the unit also features a mulcher that makes compost and a rear and side disposal system if you don’t want to collect the grass. The deck wash feature makes it very easy to clean and keeps it from spreading grass and dust while self-cleaning by simply attaching a hose to it and letting the blades turn and spread the water jets to remove the caked-on grass.
The mowing machine weighs 92 pounds, but the options and the practical design make it very easy to maneuver. Both the front and the rear wheels have bearings that offer incredible steering and a very smooth rolling, along with the durable stainless steel rims that make it an accurate and easy to handle machine on a flat, hilly, or uneven terrain. The front wheels are 8” wide and the rear wheels are 11” wide, which increases the easy handling and the performance of the machine. It has a 22” steel deck that is excellent for bagging, mulching, and rear and side discharging, and the 2.3 cubic feet Dustblocker bag keeps the air clean and breathable while you are mowing, which is an excellent aspect when it comes to comfort and safety. The folding handle made of metal is very comfortable for users, as it can be adjusted in 3 positions that suit both taller and shorter operators. The Store Handle can also be folded to make storage easier, especially if storing space is a problem for you, and it can be moved to allow you to empty the bag with one hand.
The mowing machine is very easy to maintain, as it has no oil filter to need to be changed and the engine is a series model from Briggs and Stratton that is reliable, efficient and durable. The manufacturer offers a 2-year warranty on the unit, assuming responsibility for any malfunction or replacement that needs to be made during the first 2 years after purchase.
