Dual-Stage Snow Thrower Makes Clearing Snow Quick and Easy
Put away your old snow shovel and start clearing your driveway and walkways with a Craftsman 24' Snow Thrower. 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 Snow Thrower 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' Snow Thrower 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.

Purchased this craftsman snow blower 1 day before a huge snow storm.Tried all the big box stores they none,told me come back next year.The very last place I tried was ************,they had 1 left for 679 dollars.It was the best 679 I ever spent.Not easy to turn but none of them are.This is my first snow blower and I'm so happy I punched a Craftsman.

Since purchasing this a few weeks ago, we've had several 8+ snowfalls. It works really great on fresh fallen snow! The only problem we've had has been with the really heavy snow where it's compacted and the chute gets clogged, but that's a problem with the snow not the blower. The only other issue I have is that it doesn't go all the way down to the concrete, so when it gets really cold, it forms ice.
I have done a prior review under a different screen name, and this is a follow up to that as well as adding additional info. I have now used this snowblower on light, fluffy snow, heavy wet/slushy snow and snow that has melted and refrozen, and it has excelled on all. On the refrozen mess, the street plow had compressed a solid ridge about 15" high x 3' wide and 25' long across the end of my driveway. I had to use a garden shovel to break the snow/ice wall into beach ball sized chunks, and the snow blower moved these effectively as well, throwing them perhaps 10'-12' or so. Still very happy with the machine.

I purchased this item yesterday and used it last night to clear 6" of wet snow. It throws the snow very far, is easy to control, and it cleared the 18' of snow and ice from the bottom of the driveway. I liked the different speeds. So far so good.
Received item as Christmas present. Electric and pull start works very well. HOWEVER, the machine will not move forward in over 1 inch of snow. The tires and design are at fault. Although the tire has an aggressive tread, it is useless as the surface area is too minute. This is also a fault as chains will not work on these tires. Had three mechanics look at this product and their words, "old cheap design. No matter how much money you would put into it, you are better off putting it toward a better product." I tried it the last snow storm of 6" and got no further than 5 feet out of the garage. Actually had to pull it back in to the garage with the Suburban. DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU WANT A GARAGE DUST COLLECTOR. Might be worth something in scrap metal.
I haven't personally used this snow thrower yet because it is quite powerful. A male friend has been using it on the last 2 snows and loves it. I will need some tutoring before I attempt to use it.
