      I hope they've fixed the newer models
      I have an older version of this item. It is now in its 4th winter. Design flaws: The good: -It starts on the first or second pull always. The only time I use the electric start is to get it running in the fall after sitting all summer. -It's a good size for a large driveway but still compact enough to fit in the garage between the cars. -It seems pretty easy on gas/has a large tank. I can clear my large driveway 3 or 4 times without refilling. The bad: - The chute blocks the head light. So there's always big shadow in front of you. - Head light is not sealed so water can get in and blow out the bulb. I keep a supply of bulbs handy. - The power steering is utterly useless (it works but it is useless). - All of the forward speeds are useless. I only use the lowest for blowing and the fastest for travel. I never use the others. -Gas leaks out the cap very easily. -I had to replace the cable for the drive clutch. I think it was put together wrong because it just shouldn't have twisted like it did. (I bought the blower already assembled) -When I replaced the drive cable I loosed the bracket for the auger cable. Now I can not tighten the bracket because the holes the self tapping screws go into are too loose for the screws to tighten in. I'm currently trying to figure out how to fix this. Other thoughts: I had a 26 inch MTD for years. It was a tank. I never had any problems with it except I needed the electric start. I never could get it to start without it. I knew the same company that makes craftsman also makes MTD so I thought it was a good bet. Boy was I wrong.

      Incredibly effective

      This is worth every cent. This will clear a 30x10 foot driveway in minutes. It is too much power for just your ocassional home use. We use this to clear out the parking lot at our restaurant as well. It gets running in 3 pulls max. Only nit pick I have is the steering. Not sure if my wheels are a little off, but you need a some muscles to keep it in a straightline. It's otherwise a snow eating beast.

      Craftsman Snow Blower

      Extremely pleased with new snow blower, virtually no assembly out of box. Raised the handles and secured, checked the oil filled with gas and started with first pull. Now that's the way it should go! Just waiting for snow.

      quality snow blower

      I did a lot of research before making this purchase. This unit blows everyone in this price range out of the water. The superiority in components is impressive to include the horse power of the motor and the beefy augers. It starts on the first pull every time and is extremely easy to move around.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      I am very happy with the overall design of the machine. It handles well and is a pleasure to use. I think Craftsman has a great record for making quality products and they stand by their reputation. I would recommend this product to everyone.

      Over-Sensitive

      Utica, MI

      Feb 28 , 2014
      Overall
      Sensitive Joystick and Speed Control

      Machine does the job well, however, controlling it leaves a lot to be desired. The chute joystick is over-sensitive in both azimuth rotation and height adjustment. The 1st fwd speed is too slow while the 2nd fwd speed is too fast and the 3rd through 6th fwd speeds are way too fast and not usable. Machine is too heavy and the hand levers are not well designed for good ergonomics.
