Save Time With the Convenient to Use 28" Dual-Stage Gas Snow Blower from Craftsman
The trigger controlled zero-turn steering technology used in the Craftsman 28" Dual-Stage Gas Snow Blower coupled with 16-inch X-Trac tires make for better maneuverability in snowy conditions. Fitted with a 277cc four-cycle OHV engine, it clears a 28-inch wide path with great ease. This snow thrower is a great choice for use on large paved and gravel sideways or sidewalks as the 12-inch serrated steel auger and impeller break through hard-packed snow.
Choose from the eight power-propelled speeds of this 28" Dual-Stage Gas Snow Blower to suit your needs. A four-way, 190-degree chute rotation is possible with an easy-to-use joystick. Deluxe Glide-Tech skid shoes slide along any obstructions and help keep your garage floor and driveway free from rust stains and damage. Plow styled handles with panel design allow single hand operation to control the snow tool and offer storage space for shear pins.

Well as to everyone who reads a review on a snowblower I must say we all want snow removal to be made easily. But the craftsmanship on the chute controls are horrible. after you fix the left to right mechanism I noticed it throws snow better when I spray the inner chute with Pam cooking spray. I desired to paint the inner chute with NeverWet and the chute works so much better now throwing snow and even changing to left and right.. Plastic chutes are just all around junkie.. Should've been a metal chute...
great snow thrower bought it to replace an old ariens goes through almost 20" of snow like a breeze also starts on first pull everytime easy steer is best invention ever
Plenty of power and I like the power steering as well as the chute adjust on the go. Perfect so far but just purchased a month ago and have only used 4 times. Electric start is great also.
New in the box this came with an already frayed pull start cable. Everything else seems well built and powerful. I haven't been able to use it yet so can't comment on how effective it is vs. other blowers.
We bought this blower after reviewing many options. This seemed to be the best option for us. The rounded skid shoes are what really made the difference. We have a paver / railroad tie walk way, so it is not easy to shovel, but the shoes float over the ties with ease. The zero turn is nice,
I've only used it a couple of times, but it starts on the first pull and runs smooth...About the only small complaint would be the handle on the chute is a little stiff.
Just used the snowblower once but it seems ok. It blows a lot of snow and doesn't seem too bothered by the gravel driveway. But it seems to include way too much plastic and I am concerned about its longevity. At $900 (the best sale price I waited for), I need this thing to last a long time and I am not so sure that it will.
I have owned this snowblower for 2 years. At the end of the first year I probably would have rated it 5 stars. On the first snow of the second winter, the augur cable broke, making the machine useless. I ordered a replacement cable from Sears Parts Direct. It broke before the winter was over. I called again and was sent a replacement cable under warranty for the previous one. This one just broke on the second time it was used. I can overlook a single defective part, but repeated failures indicate a design flaw that makes this machine unreliable and unusable.
