Come in From the Cold Faster When you Clear the Drive with This 21 Inch Snow Blower
Keep your driveway, porch and paths clear this winter with this 21 Inch Snow Thrower from Craftsman. Shoveling even a small snowfall can be backbreaking work, but it doesn't have to be that way. This unit propels itself forward and clears pavement clean with very little effort from you. Just guide it using the ergonomic gull wing handle. The 21-inch width means you can maneuver small spaces like walkways and decks with ease. Meanwhile, the 13-inch intake height means you can clear a lot of snow from those small spaces, with just one pass.The chute rotates 190 degrees, so you can throw the snow just where you want it-not where you just cleared.
This 21 Inch Snow Blower is compact but has a powerful 123 cc 4-cycle OHV Craftsman engine that just wont' quit. It starts easy, too, with easy-to-grasp mitten-grip starter handles. Even better, there's no mixing gas and oil out in the cold just to keep it running!
- This Craftsman 21 Inch Snow Thrower makes clearing the snow from even small paths a breeze.
- It has ground-engaging auger paddles that pull it forward, making it easy for anyone to maneuver.
- The 8" x 1.5" wheels make it easy to maneuver even when you're not throwing snow
- The Snow Claw auger technology scrapes the ground clean and then throws the snow farther, without clogging-no more stopping to clear the chute.
- The chute rotates 190 degrees, making it easy to aim the snow to a convenient location.
- The mitten-grip start handles mean no more frozen fingers while you try to start your snow thrower.
- Comes with a Sears Service-backed 2-year limited warranty for peace of mind

This snowblower was easy to assemble and started right up. It has great features for easy use and backed by the craftsman name. The snowblower came with 2 keys. The box that it was shipped in was large and would require two people to lift since it weighed approximately 85 pounds.

I may be a little premature with this evaluation because I've only used it once, but so far this machine is GREAT! This is my first snowblower. We had 6" of relatively dry snow, and my 30 minute scooping job turned into a 10 minutes easy task. I hope it works as well with wet snow. Started easily for me in cold weather. For those with starting issues - Start with fresh gas - and get the high octane stuff (it will 'keep' a little longer). Where I live 10% ethanol is added to all gasoline. It needs to be treated with a stabilizer such as Sta-bil or Seafoam. This is true for all small engines. At the end of the season - drain your gas and run it until the engine stops.

Very easy to set up the machine. For the first two to four minutes, the center of the path had a little snow left behind and the blower had quite a bit of shaking. After a few minutes, the paddles wore in and the shaking went away and the complete path was cut down to the pavement. None of these machines do very well on uneven surfaces like transitions from sidewalk to street, where the sidewalk flares up a bit by the grass. So I wasn't surprised when this blower had the same performance (or lack there of) there. One thing about paddle driven blowers, when new, they'll pull you, fast! I had to hold it back for the whole snow removal process. Time will tell, but I like it a lot based on what I've seen so far.

I purchased this little wonder when 1" of snow turned into 10". (Image that .... the forecasters were wrong?) I was amazed at the power and throwing distance. My son loves it too since he did most of the shoveling. It was so much fun that he did the neighbors. Very easy starting, glides along with little effort. Worth every penny.
I just purchased this a week ago and have used it twice so far. Very disappointed on the start. New gasoline, primed and the thing took about 25 pulls on the first go. The second time I went to use it took about 15 pulls to start. I have owned several snow blowers and this is by far the WORST starting one I have ever owned Once started and after your arm stops hurting it works great.
Year 1 worked ok Dec 2012, but this year Dec 2013 won't start. Stored in garage in nice conditions. Followed all the Preventive Maintenance instructions too. Guess There is a reason for the price and you get what you pay for. Oil is a pain to get in without spilling all over, an opening about the size of a dime at a 85 deg angle?!??! smooth move Craftsman. Save your arm the pain and get an electric start. Guessing it won't start because the fuel line is so thin it probably froze, that being only 14 deg outside so far. usually reaches zero in Michigan so can't imagine it will work any other time this snow season either.
