    Finally dumped the old craftsman and bought a Mini F/S. (one of the smartest purchases i ever made) Anyway I have a question.I have the honda 16 with 42 inch deck,the manual says to run the mower at high power,can I cut using full speed on the mower or does it work better at a slower pace ?in other words how is the blade speed as compared to the craftsman ?
    Just a normal mid-atlantic lawn 1 acre.

    You need to run the unit at full engine speed and you can control the ground speed as you wish.
    I do not know what your Craftsman mower blade tip speed is, but your new mower would be considerably higher.
