Customer Experiences

The following comments are from users of a Craftsman snowblower that earned 4.5 stars out of 5:

  • “I am very very happy with its performance, power, easy to operate controls, and starts on first pull ever time.”
  • “Have used it 5 times in the past month. Does a remarkable job. We’ve had all types of snow.”
  • “The fuel tank is very small, runs out fast. Too light for anything other than small jobs or light snow. And make sure you carry a crescent wrench with you when you operate it. Bolts and handle bars and other stuff fall off or come loose.”
