Dual-Stage Snowblower Makes Clearing Snow Quick and Easy
Put away your old snow shovel and start clearing your driveway and walkways with a Craftsman 24' Snowblower. This easy-to-handle 24 in. tool has a powerful 4-cycle, 208cc OHV engine that easily moves blows snow out of your way in less than half the time it takes to shovel out a driveway the old-fashioned way. The state-of-the-art design includes an easy push button electric starting switch that gets you started immediately, even in the most frigid temperatures-no tedious mixing of gas and oil.
The Dual-Stage Snowblower has an impressive 24 in. clearing width that gets the job done fast, even when you're clearing oversized driveways and large porches and decks. To remove packed snow, sludge and ice, engage the 12 in. serrated steel auger or 12 in. impeller to break up the masses and blow them out of your way. With 8 different speeds, 6 forward and 2 backward, you can easily adjust the thrower to clear light to heavy snowfall all over your property.
- Craftsman 24' Snowblower is equipped with an EZ rotation chute to quickly and easily direct icy deposits anywhere you aim.
- Extra long chute gives better aim and reduces snow blowing back on the operator.
- Large 13 in. x 4 in. X-Trac tires keep the tool steady for extra maneuverability and safety.
- Easy-grip handle is easy to operate while wearing gloves or mittens.
- Plow handles increase control and reduce pressure on legs and lower back.

I owned an older craftsman 29" cut last season and gave that one away when I moved to a house with a smaller driveway. Bought this 24" cut after the first blizzard up here, and it performed well throughout all storms. I needed a 24" to fit in a small crawlspace storage area out of season, and the handlebars on this unit are easy to fold down after removing a few screws and pins. I was regularly using this blower to push through snow drifts upwards of 3ft. Granted, most of the snow this winter was light and fluffy so it had no problem. Wet snow at the end of the driveway doesn't throw 40ft with this machine, but it'll throw it 15 to 20ft which is much better than shoveling. The chute is plastic, but I haven't had an issue on this new machine or my older unit that also had a plastic chute. The forward speeds worked fine for me. I found that speed 1 is good for deep snow, and 3 or 4 is good for a few inches of snow. Both reverse speeds are too slow. Fortunately, the machine is small enough to easily just pull it backwards instead of using the gear. Starts easy with the pull start and I haven't had any issues with it running.
This is an awesome snow blower. I have changed the oil once a year for heavy seasons and skipped a year for light ones. Follow the instructions for choke and pumping and it starts on first or second pull every time. Excellent range of engine settings. Light and easy to move around (poly chute makes it lighter and in my opinion better). Pretty much drives itself (6 front and 2 reverse gears). The only issue I have had is that if I stop it after 1-2 hours of snow-blowing, I need to use the electric option to restart (I might be doing something wrong/flooding the engine). My friends Ariens died and mine still goes on...
I love this snow blower! I had never owned one, and researched before buying anything. My driveway drifts really bad during the winter- to the point of not being able to get through with 4 wheel drive. It plows right through 3 foot drifts with no problem. I love that it throws the snow far enough to not create piles along the drive. Easy operation, easy start.

Bought this in fall 2013. Worked great for 2013/2014 winter. Brought it out in 2014 winter and it started leaking gas. When trying to start it now makes a grinding noise. It no longer starts or runs, gas put into it leaks out and it seems there is nothing we can do about it. IF I COULD FIGURE OUT HOW TO GIVE ZERO STARS I WOULD.
This dual-stage snowblower is so Much better than a shovel!!! I used to have a single stage snowblower that would always get clogged and sometimes I felt like it would just be easier to shovel, but with this craftsman dual-stage it's so much easier to get through the snow and I haven't had to deal with repeated clogging.

Its a strong machine. The controls take a bit getting used to. Picking the correct forward speed will be easier as time goes on. I drop it 1 star even though I've only used it twice due to the fact that I have already bent one of the augers. Not so bad it doesn't work but I noticed this after I hit a small branch that had come down in high winds and was buried by snow. It wasn't so big that my lawn mower wouldn't survive if it happened to go over it. I will be submitting a parts request to replace that at some point this month.

Bought the floor model a day before the big storm last month. Glad I did. Electric start gets you going quickly, and the machine handled almost two feet of snow with ease. Seems to be pretty fuel efficient too - I cleared two 100 ft driveways with less than a tank of gas. The adjustable chute is great, and the machine throws snow up to 50 feet - oops, sorry neighbor! I would recommend this machine to anyone looking for a machine with a lot of power at a reasonable price. And for peace of mind, I bought a three year in home service contract - if anything can't be fixed, you get a new machine for free!
