Bought this last July to replace my 1997 Craftsman, mainly because the avert said I could use the snow thrower off the old one. Long story short version, it did but with quite a few alterations, mainly cutting, no welding. I didn't think I would like the car style accelerator and reverse on my heel but I like it now. It is made by Husquavarna so when Sears goes out of business I can hopefully get parts. Cuts good and with 54" deck is a lot quicker than the old one. Only had one good snowstorm but works great. Am planning on getting an electric lift for garden plow before fall. All and all quite satisfied with it so far.

I had that style pedal on a previous tractor, and liked not having to move my foot at all to go in reverse. Good luck with your new tractor.

Same model has been sitting outside here at my local Sears. I've watched it go down in price over the last two months to $2699 and now to $2099! I wish I had the $ to buy it.

I got basically the same model 2016 with a 50' deck K58 trans dies a month after the 2 year warranty. IF you have flat dirt to mow, maybe if you have hills stay away.

Sears rep talked me into this before I knew anything about tractors. My yard is all slopes, 2 acres. Transmission burnt out within 20 hours. Sears said it was my fault for trusting their sales rep and not knowing better.
