Winter often brings heavy snows, but the Craftsman 21" 179cc single-stage electric start snowblower is here to ensure that you don't have to do any backbreaking shoveling. This powerful little machine works even in deep, wet snow. Just start the machine with a push of a button and clear snow straight down to the pavement on your sidewalk or paved driveway. A self-propelling mechanism helps take the weight off of the job.

An electric start ensures that you can fire it up instantly every time, no matter how cold it gets. The two-year limited warranty ensures that you'll love your purchase.

Extremely disappointed. My small Toro ran better than this and easier to use. This snowblower vibrates constantly, is hard to push, and really goes through the gas. Today, I finished clearing my driveway by hand shoveling, just because it was easier to do that than using the snowblower!!
For the most part very easy to assemble. Re-Mounding the screws for the discharge shout is a little cumbersome as they are tight against shout edge. Need VERY small type drive socket/handles to complete. My only comment is that this is an electric start ;BUT does not come with the outlet cord. My older blower from Sears was complete including the power cord. Salesman was more interested in selling the extended warranty and not advising of missing needed plug. Minor cost, but wasn't expecting to have to get this. If completing assembly in colder weather, make sure to pour the engine oil in VERY slowly as it must pass into a smaller tube to the engine, Cold thick oil fills tube and might overflow onto the ground. Stared almost immediately, it's new but looks like a winner.
My wife a I just bought a house with a very long two car driveway. In our city (Denver) they will ticket you if you don't shovel the sidewalks, so regardless I need to remove snow every time it snows. We bought this unit in hopes of easy snow removal. The unit fires up great but shakes pretty badly. It threw 90% of the now exceptionally well and hard packed the last 1/2" against the concrete. So now we have a ice skating rink for a driveway. We returned the unit and went with the 24in 208cc Dual Stage. That this is night and day between the two units. I'm VERY happy with it and glad we made the switch.
I have owned Craftsman snowblowers for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. This snowblower is no exception. The electric start is easy to use, but is usually not needed. With the new style auger and its 179cc motor, it can throw snow well over 30'. Its gas tank has a side view that shows the gas level, which is a nice feature. It is very versatile and works well with heavy amounts of snow, as well as small amounts. It makes dealing with snow a whole lot easier.
