Craftsman Quiet Lawnmower
"ssshhhh! I'm mowing the lawn."
Craftsman has just released two mowers with something called "Quiet Technology," which, as you would assume, makes the mowers much quieter than the norm. How quieter, you ask? According to Craftsman, it's 65% quieter than a comparable Toro, which is significant (but still, don't expect to be able to run one of these down the center aisle of the local library). The company has also redesigned the blade so that it also makes less noise. All of this quiet sauce is the result of a partnership with Briggs & Stratton, the reputable engine manufacturer.
So now, disturbing the neighbors will no longer work as an excuse not to mow the lawn. Lucky you.
There are two models available; a front wheel drive and an all wheel drive.
Here are some highlights taken from the press release:
The OHV Briggs & Stratton 725 series engine featuring Quiet Power TechnologyTM works together with the mowing blade to provide superior sound reduction and improved quality of sound.
Features the Craftsman-exclusive Smooth StartTM plus starting system and EZ push button start, making it quick and easy to start the engine.
The Briggs & Stratton 725 Series engine is backed by the Briggs & Stratton Starting PromiseTM - "starts in 2 pulls or we'll fix it for free."
Offers a 22-in. 3-in-1 deck, allowing for simple bagging, mulching and side discharging, with a four-point deck adjustment.
Includes Craftsman-exclusive EZ Bagging AccessTM for single-handed bag removal while disposing your clippings.
EZ Walk Dual Trigger Drive ControlTM and 8-in. rear wheels for added ease and smooth operation.
Craftsman-exclusive EZ Store HandleTM provides a quick and easy handle adjustment for single-handed bagger removal, multiple users and storage.
Front-Drive ($325) at Sears and All-Wheel ($475) at Sears
