The Craftsman should last you for at least 1 year if you are mowing only 10 lawns. Mine lasted 2 years but that was an average of 6 lawns per week. After that you can expect the self-propell to fall apart, the motor to burn oil, the wheels to lean inward, and the blade to start knocking - at least, that is what happened to mine.
