About - Craftsman 37010

The Craftsman 37010 is part of the lawn mower & tractor test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, push mower models like the 37010 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Mulching:
Reflects a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how completely the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

Side discharging:
A combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how evenly clippings were dispersed from the side-discharge chute.

Handling:
Includes ease of operating the drive controls (for self-propelled only), pushing and pulling, making U-turns, and maneuvering in tight spots.
About This Brand

Craftsman is one of the market leaders in lawn mower and tractor sales. Most of the models in the Craftsman line are made by Husqvarna. Craftsman lawn tractors run the price spectrum from gear-drive models priced at about $1,000 to fully-featured hydrostatic drive units that cost more than $2,000. Most Craftsman lawn tractors feature Briggs & Stratton engines, and the 42-inch-deck models are among the most popular. The majority of Craftsman lawn mowers are gas powered, but the company offers a corded electric and an electric rechargeable model. Most models feature either a Honda or Briggs & Stratton engine and have side-discharge, rear-bag, and mulching modes. Craftsman also markets a line of garden tractors and zero-turn riders. Craftsman products are sold at Sears, Kmart, and online at Sears.com.

Comment:
Grass discharge chute is a very poor design. It is held very poorly by just snapping it onto mower, if you touch anything with it, it will fall off. Since purchasing this mower I have to stop and reattatch chute at least one or twice each time I mow grass. Today while cutting grass I brushed up to a fence and the chute came off and it got caught under mower and destroyed it.<br /><br />I have owned mowers for 50yrs and have never seen a mower with such poor design to discharge grass.<br /><br />Called craftsman and as always just got the old run around, no warranty, just want to sell you a new part.<br /><br />When I 1st received mower there was 1 handle bolt missing and they wanted $12.00 to ship me another. I went to the local hardware and purchased one for 24 cents.<br /><br />I will never buy from Sears again.
How long have you owned it:
