Description

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.
  • Single-hand control locks in speed, freeing the other hand to operate chute and pitch controls
  • Self-propelled drive with choice of 6 forward and 2 reverse speeds - gives you control and versatility in winter conditions
  • CRAFTSMAN 243CC 4-cycle OHV engine with push-button electric start eliminates pull-starting a cold engine
  • Quickly rotate chute the full 200° in just 2.5 cranks. Extended chute design keeps a tighter discharge pattern to increase throwing distance and reduce snow blow back
  • In-dash headlight provides greater visibility in low-light conditions
  • 26-in clearing width and 21-in intake height
  • 3 year limited warranty for peace of mind

CRAFTSMAN 2-Stage Snow Blower with 243 CC Engine - 26-in is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great snowblower I've had this snowblower for a year now, got it on sale last year. Great machine. Quiet, reliable so far
Date published: 2023-01-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from limited life reverse 1 does not work, belt blew on start up, spark plug replaced, now the fuel pump needs replacing; other than that, when it runs, it cleans ... too many issues for a new machine
Date published: 2022-11-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit! We bought this just before the first big snow hit Ft Erie and we have been super pleased with how it performs! Chewed through a huge pile of snow plow ice at the end of our 500' driveway!! And cleared a couple of feet of snow with no worries! Did break a shear pin but 2 came with the machine so no down time!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from everything works great except the angle of shoot very light to work with, starts on first pull or eclectic start
Date published: 2022-02-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but the tires I bought this a few weeks ago and the only problem is the plastic wheels,I already had a few of the fins break off because of the cold,so will see how the warranty works.
Date published: 2022-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Easy to use. Definitely use the Manuel and read the instructions. Especially where it says change oil after 2 hours of use. I feel the more you stay on top of the maintenance like with any item that requires maintenance the longer it will last.
Date published: 2021-12-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from puissante et légère j'ai acheter cette articles il y a quelques semaines, je m'en suis servi 3 fois jusqu'à présent et j'ai été surpris par sa puissance et sa capacité d'éjection de la neige si je compare avec celle que j'ai déjà posséder. les roue ont une bonne traction, elle démarre du premier coup. j'habite au nord du 50ieme parallèle dans une ville assez froide.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy a craftsman snowblower I broke after less than 5 uses and under a year old. No one will service it as went out of business in Canada.
