Great Snowblower

Broke down and purchased a snow blower this past winter and thank God I did. The snow was abundant, frequent, and extremely heavy at times. This machine plowed right through without missing a beat. Great purchase, easy start, quality machine.

This snow blower is useless. The wheels slip, so light it rides up instead of going thru the snow. I had to pay someone to plow my driveway. I spoke with the asst manager who could not or not help & only offered excuses. Although I've had it for less than 60 days he refused to let me return it & credit towards another model.. Said he would have the store manager call & that never came. Sears has lost a customer for LIFE

have it



Had one before worked great. Came with a few scratches on top but not a big deal. The reason for 3 stars is the power cord for electric start is missing.

Sears *****


Don’t buy anything from this retailer. They rip me off for $600 by not delivering this snowblower after I completed my layaway. Can’t tell you how many philipino’s I talked to and try to fix. Useless!

easy peasy lemon squeezy


Pretty sure my title says all that really needs to be said. Other then not getting to use it yet to tell you how the performance is. It was the easiest curb side pick up I have ever had and took about 5 mins to uncrate and have ready for when the snow hits.

Won’t start after 1st season


Worked very ok first season, maybe used three times. Stored as instructed and wouldn’t start season 2. Had service out, told me these models are keeping him busy. Changed out carb and added fuel stabilizer and told me I need to keep gas in it in the off season but start monthly. A few months of doing as he instructed it will not start again. Service coming again, but I’m likely going to toss this pos, bite the $500 bullet, and get something else.
