Craftsman Lawn Mower Identification


For more than 50 years, Craftsman has built lawnmowers and lawn tractors. Though the mowers have changed over the years, identifying a Craftsman-brand lawnmower is easy. Search every section of the mower or tractor for the Craftsman logo and for other marks.


  • Look for the Craftsman logo, a rectangle lined in white with an inner red box that has “Craftsman” written in white. The logo has been used for quite a long time. Check the mower deck and inside the tractor hood for this logo if it is not noticeable anywhere on the outside of the mower or tractor.


  • Craftsman lawnmowers and tractors use only three motor brands: Honda, Kohler and Briggs & Stratton. If the motor is any other brand, then the mower is not a Craftsman or the motor has been swapped out.


  • Craftsman mowers come in red, black and gray. Years ago, they also came in green. Craftsman mowers and tractors have never been any other color.

Craftsman Professional

  • Craftsman Professional, a brand within the Craftsman line, started building lawn tractors a few years ago. The Craftsman logo is the same, but now it is accompanied by a small yellow rectangle underneath it that says “Professional.” These tractors are built stronger and are recommended for commercial landscaping companies.

Sears Brand

  • The Sears brand of lawnmowers and tractors that were built a long time ago are not Craftsman products. They do not have the features of Craftsman-built products. If you see "Sears" written on the mower or tractor, it is not a Craftsman.
