We had bought this to replace a really really old one we had gotten from my folks. We didn't need much just something that moved the snow. It was easy to assemble and the only issue I had was getting the oil cap off and getting in the oil without spilling it all over, needed a better funnel than I had. It really throws the snow and even the slush. I bought it in time for the 8 inches that we got that day. I am very happy with the purchase of this blower.
We bought this machine last year. It worked fine the first winter. We tried to start the machine for the winter of 2015 but guess what? It doesn't work. I tried many times and the start cord ripped off. I tried to call customer service for support and after getting transfer from agent to agent for about 10 times they finally told me to go to Sears for repair. I've been waiting for about a month and SURPRISE it will cost me $200.00 for repair. It's not under warranty. So don't waste your money, buy something that's worth your money.
This is a single stage small size 4 cycle engine snowblower. It's perfect for my small single family home use for driveways and sidewalks. It handles wet snow if you are a little patient and works very well with light/dry snow up to 12" or so. Easy starts,
easy to use, and the value for the price is excellent.
Purchased through Sears website. Great communication and follow through with delivery.
It only worked the first time I turned it on. Second time it snowed, didn’t turn on. Shouldn’t have to worry about this for a brand new snowblower.
This is the best $400 I’ve spent in a long time. It worked extremely well in all directions and did not bog down at all.
First the screws were too tight and they needed to come off in order to put on the chute. I needed a wrench and its hard to screw due to limited space around the screw holes when trying to put the chute on.
Also it takes alot of effort to start. My arm gets tired. The handle seems too thin for the unit. Not totally happy.
