Get the Job Done with the 26-inch 208cc* Dual Stage Snowblower
The Craftsman® 26-inch 208cc* dual stage snowblower gets the job done fast. The four-cycle engine provides more power, longer life, and improved fuel economy. It's easier to use, because you don't have to mix gas and oil. The push-button start saves aggravation, and the joystick lets you adjust the chute without leaving your operating position. The 26-inch clearing width and 21-inch intake height mean you clear more snow with each pass and get in out of the cold faster.

So far so good. I bought this in the summer and unpacked it from the box, everything looks to be good and in good condition. I will see what the winter brings for us this year and see how it performs.
Had a great first year and half with this but now its just been problems. Even more aggravating is that parts, such as carb rebuild kits aren't stock in any store. They have to be ordered. long lead time and expensive shipping. Too bad since there isn't a fuel filter for fuel shut off, only a matter of time before the carb goes. Seems they are just looking for the consumer to break down and use their repair dept.
I have owned this snowblower for about a month. Have used it 10 times and it goes through everything I have attempted to go through. Great for the snow that the plows pile up on the end of the driveway. I find myself doing the side walks all along my street because it is so easy. It is easy for my wife to use and she has never used a snowblower before. I am impressed so far.
Quick and easy start. Clean pickup and clearing. Definitely cuts down time and requires no second pass. I definitely wish it has more than 190 degree range. So glad I bought it. Electric start in -17F weather is great.

Wonderful machine. I have a 200' driveway and have side walk just as long, I had no problem cleaning with this snowblower. It works well in snow as deep as 10" (that's the most we got one day.) the electric starter is the best feature in it. M
Reviewed many snow blowers before settling on this one. Pros: electric start, shoot controls are next to all the other controls, no need to bend down to change the shoot direction. Cons: doesn't have heated hand grips.
Purchased on sale two years back and only used once last winter, but this winter, we had snow falls about 1 foot deep. It worked well in this condition and I was able to clear my long gravel driveway (150 feet) and asphalt pavement as well. The only thing I wish it had is a built-in lamp and brakes when the drive handle is released. It will slide away if it's on the slope. I do have to drain all fuels before putting it into storage last year, but it started just after a few pulls.
I bought this right before Christmas and after reading numerous review I decided to buy the 247. Power is great and it cuts right through snow drifts up to 15 inches thick. it handles all of the snow that we have gotten in Wyoming and with the wind I needed something that would cut through the drifts. Set up was very easy, I put gas in it and it started right up. I have had no problems starting it and the electric start is great. It works well enough that I do our corner walks plus the neighbors. The only concern I have is that I don't think the wife will be able to handle this snow blower as it is big and powerful. I will follow the directions when the snow season ends and have no doubts it will start right up. I liked it enough to recommend that my father in law buy one and he did.
