I've had this item for several years now and it works well. I use the plow when the snow is wet and heavy and I have a snow blower that I use when the snow is high and fluffy. The plow is easy to install for people that have basic skills for reading directions and who have.a general understanding of how tools work. I have wheel weights with chains that are needed for traction, especially if you need to plow on an incline. The plow comes on and off easy and is easy to store on the back floor of my shed in the off season. I leave the bracket on the front year round. Slight adjustments and some wd-40 help with keeping the plow easy to move (up, down, left and right) all while sitting in the chair. I have a two car garage and a driveway that is about 2 cars wide and 6 cars long. This plow handles that size just fine.
The assembly was ok, you do have to use your brain and your hands. I have plowed 4 times with it and it works. I have worn our the "feet" that the plow rides on and I am disappointed, but perhaps it speaks to my rough asphalt as I have not seen anyone else complain of this issue. Wish I had bought this years ago.
Was skeptical after reading a bunch of other reviews but I am very satisfied thus far.its recommended 8" of snow or less but to my surprise was able to plow at least 10" or more.Whether the fluffy snow or even the slushy type have had no problem removing whatsoever. Beats shoveling a 300 yard driveway, would also recommend chains & wheel weights for better traction but for the money beats snowblower.

This was shipped quickly to my local store and was very easy to pick up and install within minutes works great in the snow. Product was made of great quality instructions were very easy to follow all parts were there no extra drilling or modifications were necessary I would definitely repurchase this item well worth the money
Let me start by saying I am a Chef and not a mechanic. If you cannot put this together, you probably should not be driving the lawn tractor either. As with a recipe, you must read the directions first, then a second time...then throw them away and put the thing together! I had mine mounted and running in less than 2 hours and my tractor is from 1972! It was also missing 1 major part, the hand grip, but we made it work just fine. I have leveled my entire field and made quite a few trails with it already and it has only been 10 days!
OK, so about 7 years ago I bought this thing, I used it and loved it. I wrote a great review explaining that if you use this blade properly, you can move almost any snowfall. well here I am 7 years later... my review is gone, the pictures of the blade are different and I even think the model #'s changed. what has not changed however is this little workhorse's ability to tackle huge jobs. I live on long island and generally speaking we done get huge snowfalls. last year was different. we got 33 inches in one storm! this year we have already had 3 storms of a foot or so. I can honestly say that if you use this blade properly, you will move tons of snow. the key is obviously not to bite off more than it can handle. why did I bother to go thru the trouble of rewriting a review? because I just used it again last night (10 inches) and this lil blade is that good. full disclosure I have bent, broken, snapped and sheared pieces over the years. I have always just bought replacement parts, fixed it and put it back to work... and i mean WORK! I beat the snot out of it! tire chains and weights are a must. it will not work without them.
I have been reading these reviews for a awhile now and while plowing after the most recent storm, I decided it was time to write. As far as assembly, you have to follow the directions and have some sense of mechanical aptitude. I bought this blade back in 2002 and have used it ever season since (less the year I was deployed to Iraq) and it has performed beyond expectations. I install it by 1 dec and remove it by 15 march. I do the required maintenance which is not a great deal. I replace parts before they fail and have a spare cable on hand (only had one bust) and I put a new scrapper blade on at the beginning of the season. This blade has plowed too many storms to remember. IT WORKS in all conditions. As true with plowing, you have to stay ahead of the storm and plow snow with a plan. I was able to keep my street open through three blizzards one year (got a lot of beer on the front porch that year) and routinely plow several driveways with it. Chains and weights a must even if you are a big guy (I'm 6'2 250). If you can not plow with this, you simply do not know what you are doing and need to take a lesson or watch some videos. Great investment and it has paid for itself many time over.
Purchased this snow plow four years ago. Assembly took about 45 minutes. The parts that were left over would fit different tractors. Every year, I do my property and the property of my neighbors. It is easy to operate and works perfectly. Just today, I got the blade caught and snapped the cable. I intend to use this plow for years to come. I can't see anyone having trouble assembling and using this product. By the way, I am 75 years old and a Viet-Nam disabled vet.
Comes in a box, but the weight makes the box break even before you get it in the car. Instructions are misleading, as usual for most of Sears Craftsman tractor items, because they're poorly edited and point to the wrong figures or illustrations. The box contains TWO models worth of parts, so you have some left over, but they don't tell you that up front. Because of box breaking in storage or somebody using my hardware to assemble something else in the back room, my model was missing some nuts, which forced a trip to the hardware store. Other than that, the plow works great.
