      Buying this snowblower kept it from snowing!
      Thought we might have a repeat of 2010-2011 winter for 2011-2012. Didn't want to deal with pulling and pulling to get the old 2cycle blower to run so replaced it with this Electric start unit. GREAT blower. Starts quick and runs great. But as they say, wash the car and it rains, buy a snow blower and it doesn't snow! Best investment made to stop old man winter. Saved on gas as well because by spring still had the same tank of gas I started with. 4cycle engine runs smooth and on the one day that did snow, although not enough for the blower, was able to test the power by piling up the snow in one direction. Then on the last pass of the driveway it was fairly high enough to see how the blower takes a load and it tour right through the pile up with no problems. Special note though, the manual states to spray silicone spray in the shoot to help prevent clogging. Good rule to follow because it works. There was no clogging of the shoot, from the heavy wet snow, after I sprayed it . Thank you Sears and Craftsman for another great product.

      Stuck Snow Chute Handle
      Bought then returned this item 3 times before I asked for a complete refund. Item has very good power and snow clearing ability. Handle that moves the snow chute locks in place and can not be moved unless you pry the spring up with a screwdrives or some type of instrument. Shame the handle did not work as well as the snow clearing performance of this snow blower!

      Running strong for two years now

      I needed a snow blower that was smaller due to both limited storage space and because my driveway is only slightly wider than one car. I bought this in November 2012 and did not need it at all that winter. Winter 2014 and now 2015 I have used it about 8 total times. This thing has cleared the snow quite well every time - everything from light and fluffy to dense packed, to ice covered snow. I have not had any issues with the directional stick. I change the direction of the shoot frequently while using it and it still works flawlessly. The only negative was that it took about 6 pulls to get it to start for the first snowfall this winter. The second snowfall only took one pull. I would highly recommend this to anyone that does not have the space for a larger two-stage machine.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Maybe I got a lemon, but...

      Got it home, unboxed it and there was a crack in the top cover, the headlight did not work, and after the first season of use the belt was slipping, the paddles felt like they were way to tight against the shoot, and a bolt that holds the side to the shoot was missing. I tried to perform the first scheduled oil change and the plug was in so tight that I had to wreck the plug to get it out. Took it in for warranty repair and somehow ended up costing me $150 for stuff that they said was not covered? Now the light works some times, and it just seemed like the paddles still had some issue. I took the bearing cover off of the side opposite of the belt and the bearing spacer was missing! I don't know if this was from the factory or the service person. Another thing I hate is that I don't have a local Sears repair facility so it has to get shipped out and takes forever to get work done. If I could do it all over again I would buy the Cub Cadet version of this macing from my local dealer to get more personal service.

      Craftsman The perfection in Snow Blower's

      The quality of the snow blower is superior to other snow blowers I have looked at before purchasing a Craftsman. The features and available extended warranty make this unit a very exceptional value. I look forward to many years of trouble free use out of this fine product.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Buy!

      I am lucky to buy one of the remaining 'single stage' snowblowers. I have a large driveway for which I contract for major snow removal. This single stage product is perfect for my needs for lighter snows and clean-up. It has a more powerful motor than its competitors and has the 'joy stick' for instantaneous direction control. Add to that, electric start and you have a winner!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      2014 craftman 21" 208cc

      Purchased online dec. 2013 for pending snow storm. I used it 3 times then had to shovel during the rest of winter. This single stage is belt driven. It was doing great until the belt snapped and destroyed the plastic belt wheel. Sears tech was GOOD and replaced the broken parts. This happened 3 times. Everytime i used it the belt snapped. I kid you not. Save your money and go double stage. Avoid the belt driven thing at all cost.

      Better than what I expected

      This is just the right size to a good job, yet small enough for easy use and storage. This replaced a Lawn boy 20inch/3hp blower that I had for 15 years. It was becoming hard to prime and start. Went looking for a new one yesterday and found this. Didn't realize blowers this size had electric starts. Received 5 inches of snow overnight and this cleared a two car drive, a good portion of our cul-de-sac and a large deck in about 30 minutes. It takes my neighbors much longer, dealing with the larger 2-stage blowers. The fact that it uses straight gas and not a gas oil/mixture is a big plus too. Very satisfied.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Good power, easy to maneuver and easy storage.

      I purchased this blower right before the big storm hit Jersey a couple of weeks ago. I'm a contractor and I expect good performance from my tools. This blower worked beyond my expectations. It has good power and throws snow further away than I had thought. It started up easily with no need of the electric starter. I tested the electric starter and it started on the first push of a button. I noticed many people had issues with the joystick chute controller but I didn't. I have used it about 5 times already since the big snow storm and it worked flawleslly every time. This little guy performed just as well as some of my neighbors' dual stage blowers. I recommend to anyone with a normal size driveway and home. Bigger driveways I recommend going with a dual stage blower. If anyone has any questions don't hesitate to contact me via my website at smartfixhomeimprovement.com

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Have not had a heavy snow since purchase. Had about 5" heavy. Worked GREAT

      Seems silly for the head light to be on at all times. I'll put an "on/off switch for it. Has a lot of good features for a single stage. I'd recommend it.

      Outstanding Snowblower

      I have had only one opportunity to use my new snow blower once, but it performed outstanding! For years I have had a much larger and heavier snow blower with rubber tracks on it. It was very hard to maneuver and to redirect. I noticed my neighbor had a much smaller blower and I said I would buy one too. Of course it did not snow for the next two years, but when it did this year I bought this smaller blower. With Its new technology, it completed my corner lot wrap around sidewalk very fast and completely. I believe the extra 208 cc HP helped with its performance.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
