Craftsman Pro Series 39790 223cc 28" Wide Cut Rear Wheel Drive Lawn Mower w/ Striper Kit $719.99

The Cub Cadet version of this mower is $899.00 at Home Depot. The Troy Bilt one is $850.00.

You also get anywhere between $17.20 and $89.25 in SYW rewards points back depending on if you bought anything else and are a member. I got $37 but I think it crossed promos with some of those tool sets I posted. If you are SYW max you can get 5% more in points if you pick it or have it delivered free instead. You get 5% off if you use your credit card.

What??? I fully expected to see a heavy duty commercial walk-behind and was intrigued how they could sell it for this price and still call it "Pro". Are folks really paying $700-800 for a 28" push mower.

That just seems very over-priced...

It is a heavily featured high-end consumer grade mower they they call a 'pro' for marketing purposes. You can compare to the Toro that is $999 and two inches wider at 30". A true commercial grade wide-cut mower is going to run you much more.

This is a good deal if you happen to need this size mower. I don't know if I would call it a Slickdeal but I'm still giving this a thumbs up. This would be a good mower for someone with just a 1/2 acre that wants the exercise instead of sitting on a tractor.

This thing is pretty heavy heavy duty I have checked it out in store. It weighs 160lbs which is about 60lbs more than a commercial Snapper. It's more like a quasi commercial product. I seem to recall a standard top of the line John Deere walk behind like the one I currently have was about $550 at Lowes. Toro has a similar product which I believe is 30 inches and costs $1000 or so.

These mowers do come in handy if you have a large yard with tight areas to get in between.

They're good in tight areas where the riders don't fit depending on your yard configuration even if you're over a 1/2 acre. I have a lot of weirdly spaced trees in my back yard. They also use a lot less gas. By the time I'm done driving around on my tractor to get the bulk majority it's easy to use a gallon of gas. My John Deere has nearly the same engine as this and can do the entire yard on a small tank of gas.

At $719 plus points back you're in the $650-700 range which is good for what you get.
