Bought a similar spec-wise craftsman just over a year ago and this year a metal ring on a drive wheel broke. Seems like a fairly thick metal ring to break all the way through with just over 1yr use. Starts great and runs great... but a fairly expensive break after one year use doesn't inspire confidence in me. Mine might be a fluke -- but my next mower won't be a craftsman.
At least the engine is good. I have a similar engine in a $280 Troy Bilt front drive that ran like a champ for 7 years on my really steep1/3 acre yard. Last week, it died but a simple carb clean fixed it and its back for few more years Go with Honda engines!
