I have craftsman riding mower, snowblower, garage door opener, chainsaw, Kenmore appliances, all because they stock parts at their stores for a long time. I tend to fix things myself if they break and finding any part is half the job of fixing it. I recently broke my chain saw. Tree fell on it and wouldn’t let go so I ran away instead of waiting for it to move enough to get it out. The chain bar, chain, and tightening mechanism all broke. New chain with bar was $30, the tightening mechanism was a litle threaded key that broke, 3 for $4. You can go into any Sears parts store and they have a breakout diagram of everything. Longevity wise I can’t complain, my neighbor has a Deere and he has had to trailer it in to get it fixed and mine hasn’t needed to (yet).
