This two-stage snow blower by Craftsman is powered by a 243 CC, 4-cycle OHV engine with push-button electric start that eliminates the need to manually pull-start your cold engine. The strongly serrated steel augers cut through snow to clear pathways and alleys faster for great time savings. One single pass provides you with a 26-in clearing width and a 21-in intake height. Its self-propelled drive features 6 forward and 2 reverse speeds provide control and versatility in different winter conditions, while 15-in tires offer traction in snowy terrain. The chute fully rotates at 200 degrees with only 2.5 cranks and its extended design increases throwing distance and reduces snow blowback by keeping a tighter discharge pattern. Controls can be used using only one hand, letting you lock speed and freeing your other hand to control chute and pitch with precision. Finally, the snowblower's headlights provide greater visibility, meaning you can tackle snow jobs at any time of the day. Backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
