Craftsman celebrates its 75th anniversary with a catalog that features more than 4,000 items, including 739 new products.

Since 1980, the maintenance crew of the Golden Gate Bridge has used Craftsman tools in the repair and upkeep of the bridge. Today, their work tools include: wrenches, sockets, ratchets, pliers, toolboxes, hacksaws and blades, propane tanks and pneumatic tools.
Craftsman introduces a propelled, front-wheel-drive lawn mower, with a 7-HP Briggs & Stratton engine - the most powerful lawn mower engine ever built for use at home. More power means efficient cutting and easier mowing on inclines. The mower is equipped with a 21-inch convertible deck for mulching, dispersing or bagging grass clippings.
