Great investment!

As an older woman, I was afraid a snowblower would be too much to handle, but I was wrong!  It is strong enough to do the job of the deep northern Michigan snow but the steering assist made it easy and that is not heard of up hear.  Controlling the direction and distance of the snow with the joystick control is a time saver.  I should have done this sooner!

I purchased this machine a year ago in February 2015. I used it 10 times. I tried to start it up in January 2016 and it would not work. I purchased the 3 year service plan, which ended up being worthless and had the serviceman come out. After a 5 minute consultation, he told me it was the carburetor which was not working on many of the same machines. It took almost a month to get the part. Guess what... the replacement didn't work. He tried another new carburetor a few weeks later and guess what... IT DIDN'T WORK! The serviceman deemed the machine defective and we tried to get the machine replaced. By now it's the end of February because of the delay on the part and trying to get it replaced. We can't get a replacement as promised by Sears service because IT'S THE END OF SEASON. I guess the end of February is the end of winter in the Northeast. I feel lied to and ripped off. I'm going to sell it to a friend for parts and scrap metal and go somewhere else to get a new one for next winter. In short: Useless machine and useless service. DO NOT PURCHASE!

Bad product and horrible company with awful customer service


Purchased 11/2015 with 5 year in home warranty. First summer stored with fuel stabilizer. Winter of 2015/16 wouldn't start. Sears came out and cleaned carburetor under warranty. Snow blower tank drained and run dry for summer of 2016. Wouldn't start in winter of 2016. Sears wouldn't honor the in-home warranty anymore so I was required to either pay for the carburetor cleaning myself or do it myself. It requires rebuilding or replacement now 2-3 times each year. And the warranty that I paid for is not honored by the company. I will never do business with Sears again.

Lacking Information


Though this appears to be a good product for the cost, it was not clear in the ad that assembly was required.
