SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch riding lawn mower is not cutting evenly

The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.

I have a Craftsman, front wheel drive mower. I have replaced the front (drive) wheels every 6 months for the last two years. The plastic gears on the wheels just get chewed up. What is the problem?


Must be a bad mower that got thru the assembly line somehow. I have owned a front wheel drive Craftsman mower for 7 yrs and have never had one single problem with anything on it.

How to change oil In a craftsman lawn mower, that has a honda engine. Misplaced my manual. Have decided to change my own oil rather than have it serviced every year I was doing a number of lawns so I had...


Look for a drain plug under the deck in the bottom of the engine (under the deck) known as the crankcase housing. Drain plugs come in different forms, but you will know it when you see it. IF there is no plug on the engine bottom, then check for a small plug on the side of the engine (above the deck) with a square head. That would be removed and the mower tilted that way to drain the oil. If no plug on the side of the engine then the oil will have to be drained out the oil filler tube. Remove the dipstick and tilt the mower that way to drain the oil.

Hi there Avu

It's quite east to see when was your tractor was made, follow these simple steps and you'll know how to see what model it is

  1. Lift the tractor / mower seat (pull it up)
  2. You will see there's a small metal label with the serial and model number of the tractor / mower
  3. Check the serial number of the tractor / mower
  4. the first six digits of the number are you the model month day and year (i.e 090999XXXXXXX this tractor was made in September nine in 1999
Hope this helps
Attached is an image of the tractor seat and the metal plate
