About - Craftsman 37432

The Craftsman 37432 is part of the lawn mower & tractor test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, push mower models like the 37432 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 well the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how much clippings the bag held either before it filled or the chute clogged.

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.
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.

Not Good On Uneven Ground
5/24/2015
Pros
Lightweight
Starts Easily
Cons
Height adjustment
Hose Attachment Cleaner
Best Uses
Flat Even Ground
Comment:
This mower may be good for flat, even lawn but the height adjustment does not allow the deck to be raised enough to cover uneven ground. Specifically, the rear of the deck gets caught on small lumps/bumps in my country lawn. I have devised a blocking system to raise the deck enough to allow me to mow my lawn with this mower. I am looking for a replacement mower.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have about 1/3 acre that I push mow and another 3 acres that I mow with a diesel tractor and bush hog. This little Craftsman push mower always does the job. My last one lasted 10 years and the only reason it quite was because I hit a rock and sheared the key. I could replace it but for the price of these mowers I just bought a new one. Love this mower. It starts every time and it never complains over low maintenance.
