About Craftsman

A maker's journey begins with Craftsman tools. Since 1927, the Craftsman brand's unwavering dedication to quality and durability has inspired builders, DIY'ers, weekend warriors and everyone in between. With over 80 product categories and 6,000+ products, Craftsman tools endures as America's best-selling tool brand.


Every Craftsman tool is put through a battery of tests to make sure it will work as hard as you do. 
When the first Craftsman tool was sold, a promise of quality went along with it. That promise "the brand's warranty" still stands today, just as strong and enduring as it did in 1927.

Stevens Outdoor Power Equipment has been the New Zealand distributor for world leading mowers since 1991. A well-established, third generation family business — operating from a modern, purpose-built Auckland facility — SOPE’s in-house R&D department and multi-generational engineering background allows then to tailor international products for peak performance in New Zealand’s conditions. Many ideas developed in Stevens' prototyping facility have been adopted by our International suppliers.

Spare parts and technical back-up for equipment sold is a high priority in Stevens' culture. The business has been built on this strength as many customers are commercial users, to whom time is money. For this reason Stevens sells through a national network of outlets who are trained to provide service back-up and, in many instances, carry a wide range of spare-parts in store.

SOPE is also the exclusive importer and distributor for BigDog Mowers, Hustler Mowers, Walker Mowers, and Bear Cat Chippers.

Stevens purpose-built factory is situated on 1.5 acres near Auckland Airport.
