    Which mower model was it?  I was considering the small R110 mower and you have me worried.

    T140, 18 1/2 HP* 46” cutting deck. I now have a John Deere, and was able to finish cutting my lawn today.

    I have an R110 and I've had several issues.

    Well I just purchased the R140 (with hydrostatic transmission) and will get it on Thursday.  I will have 30 days to decide if it's worth keeping.  I spent some time at Lowe's with a pretty good lawn and garden manager who told me to have one assembled versus taking a pre-assembed one that has probably sat outside at some point.  Also suggested that the manual shift with all the plastic parts was more suseptable to issues than having the transmission do the work with less levers to deal with.

    I bought a R140 (with hydrostatic transmission) back in April Lowes.  Used it all spring & summer but It's had problems with starting and steering from the beginning.  Finally it just wouldn't start 2 week ago.  Engage a local repair shop who fixed the starting issue (it's not covered under warranty).  They're waiting on parts (backordered with no ETA) to fix the steering assembly.   All in all very dissatisfied with this purchase.  Will not get another Craftsman product

    I had my R140 serviced and looked over after about 10-15 hours of use, and the repair shop said that most 30" mowers are all cheaply made and to treat them with extra care.  They leveled the deck as part of the service and said that they could not guarantee that it wouldn't move while trailering it home.  They thought that the snapper was the best small rider as far as quality goes, and that the big box stores want to sell a cheap product.  Unfortunately, the snapper mowers haven't been available and i had to go with what was in stock.  We've been treating our R140 as gentle as possible, keeping the blade high and going easy on bumpy terrain.  So far, we've been good, but a mower should be a lot more sturdy than this.

    I'd be willing to pay a bit more for a solid 30 inch mower.
