Similar to Craftsman 37744 21" 163cc Briggs & Stratton but w/ a hidden battery.
The talk on a B&S engine got me thinking. Has anyone owned the Crafstman electric start gas mower?
I bought it 6 years ago… biggest and best… with all the features. Every one had a flaky battery. (Sears took them back rather than swap a battery.) It is a heavy walk behind machine. It’s easy to start using the rope, but the push button is easier. Wintered over, I kept it plugged in, Seafoam in the tank. Come spring, it ran fine, but after 2 mows, the battery died, 3 days after warranty.
The odd thing is, it won’t start w/o replacing the $58 battery (I was told… no explanation). I located the batt hidden in the engine housing, but can’t see how a battery could keep the engine from running. I was hesitant… never heard of a BS engine requiring a battery to run.
