1. Outdoors How is it determined that the "small block" on a Craftsman push mower "never fails" unless it has been abused by the customer? The mower I purchased last spring, which is still under warranty, seized up after running out of gas in the midst of mowing my yard. I was told by the repair center that I either ran it without oil or "hit something hard." Neither is true, but apparently that is not relevant. $300 for a disposable lawnmower. Dead after a season and 1/2. Thanks, Sears.
