Craftsman lawn mowers. Description of the model range. Recommendations for operation and maintenance
Many smart gadgets, tools and productive attachments have been developed to alleviate hard physical work. Taking care of a garden, tidying up a constantly overgrown lawn, is one of the labor-intensive jobs. Modern lawn mowers and trimmers with different drives – electric, gasoline, battery – cope with this task without problems.
For owners of homestead plots, country houses, utility stairs and parks, it remains only to choose the best option in terms of functionality and price. In order not to get lost in the variety of garden tools for mowing and mowing the lawn, let’s talk about the brand craftsman.
Description of the brand
On behalf of the largest American company Sears, which owns several international retail chains, the Swedish concern produces a gasoline lawn mower Husqvarna Craftsman. Sears has been known on the market for over a century – since 1893. Its sales activities, as well as some other well-known brands today, began with the sale of various goods to consumers by mail.
In addition to craftsman lawn mowers, Sears offers many different quality products: automotive and hand tools, home appliances and home electronics, generators and chainsaws, snow blowers and tillers, a variety of power tools and a wide range of cordless devices.
In 2005, Sears merged with another retailer, KMART, in hopes that the union of the two competing companies would revitalize the overall business. Contrary to expectations, the company’s financial situation did not improve. In October 2018, U.S. retailer Searsholings, which has dominated the U.S. market for decades, announced it had opened bankruptcy proceedings.
Today, the company continues to negotiate with interested parties and hopes to go through the restructuring process as efficiently as possible and with minimal losses. Unfortunately, with the announced bankruptcy of retailer Searsholings, many of the company’s businesses are downsizing, downsizing or hiring production workers. Some craftsman lawn mower models have been installed. Time will tell how successful the restructuring of the holding company and in what direction they will be directed in the future.

Recommendations for the operation and maintenance of lawn mowers
Craftsman lawn mowers are produced in the United States, which are distinguished by the high quality of components, units and parts, as well as exemplary meetings. According to consumers, it can be assessed that the technical characteristics declared by the manufacturer fully correspond to the work in real conditions.
Before operating the lawnmower, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with the manufacturers and follow only the manufacturer’s recommendations.
A new machine is delivered to consumers without working fluids – no oil or fuel. As a rule, the entire device is made at the factory. It should arrive to the owner only in disassembled form. When filling the crankcase for the first time, about 540 ml of oil should be poured. The first oil change is done after 5 moto-hours, subsequent changes after 25 hours of operation or danger.
Kraftmans lawnmower uses unhealthy gasoline AI-92, high quality engine oil SG SL for four-stroke engines with viscosity SAE 30 on temperatures, SAE 10W-30 on temperatures. Use is irregular and excessive for your engine.
- Keep gasoline in good condition: After each use, remove dirt, grass and other debris, check fasteners for reliability and tightness of moving joints.
- After 25 moto-hours or thereabouts: lubricate components, check or sharpen blades, check drive belts, clean air filter, change oil, inspect muffler.
- Replace the air filter after 100 hours of spark plug operation.
- When mowing grass on sandy soils, the blades should be replaced more often.
- The blades can be sharpened with a file or pointer, taking into account compensation without failure.
- Owner’s note: The Maxi Clean air filter extends the life of the craftsman lawnmower. The spark plugs are treated with a special platinum plating for greater reliability.
- When your Kraftsman lawnmower is operated in dusty, dirty, heavy-duty, high-temperature environments, it should be serviced more frequently than the maintenance plan dictates.
To extend the life of your Kraftman lawn mower as long as possible, it is important to follow the rules and make adjustments. It’s much easier to prevent outbreaks and malfunctions than it is to correct unfortunate mistakes and omissions. As the experience of many gardeners tells us, failing to follow the basic rules of machine maintenance can cause serious malfunctions.
Pay attention to some particularly important manufacturer’s recommendations when operating the units.
- All maintenance work on the Kraftman grass mower, including adjusting the cutting height, wheel height, can be completely stopped with the engine completely turned off.
- The maximum permissible inclination angle of the mower should be 15°.
- The fuel tank must not be overfilled with petrol and the engine must not be overfilled with engine oil – otherwise the master lawnmower will smoke.
- It is forbidden to change the settings of the engine speed regulator and exceed the permissible limit.
- The engine does not start most often for the following reasons: lack of fuel, poor-quality gasoline, dirty filter, spoiled spark plug.
- Loss of power occurs with increasing driving speed, excessive oil in the engine crank, clippings under the mower, dirty air filter, there was a knife in too thick grass.
- Increased vibration is due to problems with the blade or crankshaft.

“When buying, the manager assured me that Kraftman is a great machine. Indeed, my best impressions of the 37700 mower.
Advantages: It’s very easy to start, no fuel pumps and endless jerking. Doesn’t run too loud, plenty of power. Not complicated, rear wheel drive. Gasoline consumption is average, the Chinese gasoline trimmer I have even take more. Grass of medium height on the lawn and high in the meadow. On an uneven surface goes like a tank.
I have not noticed any disadvantages. “
