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.

Bought this item because of Consumer Reports "********" rating. I wasn't looking for all the bells and whistles (headlights, hand warming grips, push button shoot control) just something to clear the walkways and clean up after the snowplow. It's everything I expected. It handles compacted snowplow snow banks (we have a lot of them) very well and flies through fresh powder. Only drawback is the low undercarriage which sometimes rides up on heavily compacted snow banks. A quick reverse and second pass takes care of that. If you don't want to spend $12K or more for something you're only going to use 3-4 months a year, and want a 24" wide powerhouse, this is the machine to get.

I bought this because of the good reviews. It's handle to turn on the auger and fan broke the first day.We are in Peoria Illinois, Large town. No parts store, order them online. Take the blower in and wait a minimum of two weeks for repair. The parts breakdown is wrong so the part I ordered was wrong and sending it back cost more than the shipping. I made my own to get by. The sales clerk says " the only way to get around this problem is to buy the in home repair warranty, and no you can not buy parts from that guy". Never again will I buy from Sears. Buy only from small dealers who have repair shops and will get you parts or can repair in house. The in home repair warranty is way too expensive.

This winter was a had one and our craftsman snow blower went out after 13 year. We had good use from it but it was time. So we purchased the Craftsman 24 In dual stage. It is great! it doesn't take much to work it. It definitely can handle the snow. It is easy to use and cleans up nicely. i recommend this for anyone, any age,
It took less time to assembly and get ready then the 2 hours noted in the instructions. I used the snow blower 4 times the first week I had it on my 100 foot drive and 50 feet of walks ways. It used to take me over 2 hours and now only a 1/2 hour. I have only used the very easy pull start and will try the electric start next time. It did not come with a electric cord.
Have used all winter in CO mountains to clear 3" to 24" of snow from 50', doublewide driveway. Starts immediately with electric start or manually. Had always bought Honda yard equipment before because of engine reliability. This seems equally reliable.
Only got to use it twice. So far I like it a lot. Easy to maneuver. Easy to start. Cleans the driveway and sidewalks really good. Throws snow far and high. I would recommend to a friend.
This is my 3rd season with this model. The engine runs great, starts extremely easy even without the electric start. Now for the real story, you have to leave the choke partially on for smooth operation. if snow is slushy it does not throw it worth beans. As for the joystick operation of the shoot, BIGGEST JOKE EVER. Operation is very loose and sloppy. Most of the time you need 2 hands just to get movement started. I have replaced the pin at least 30x. I have tried 5 different pins including cotter pins, shear pin clips and even nails. I cannot keep ANYTHING in this fitting for more than 3-4 uses tops. The bottom pin has only broke 1ce, the top pin is the worst, very hard to get to and not much room to turn so finding something to replace it with is very limited. My last model was an Agway and I miss it tremendously. Definately read the negative reviews before purchasing.
I had a simple one stage before this model, and this year's record snowfall in Indianapolis was too much for the small unit. I purchased this unit several weeks ago and have used it three times to clear three driveways. The power of the two stages to grind and throw the snow and the ease of overall use have are very impressive. This is a good looking machine that performs well. I have been using the pull starter and the unit fires up with just a few pulls after the right amount of choke and pumps of the gas bulb.
