I originally posted this video last Feb. The tractor and snow blower are not going to change for 2011 so I am just going to update the article and let you make your own decision if this is the best tractor for you.
Like everyone else the Midwest got hit pretty hard with snow last February. 20 inches of snow, 60 mph winds.
Here is a video from Beloit, WI of a 30 hp Craftsman Premium Model 28985 blowing snow.
The owner of this tractor likes to compare the Craftsman to the Simplicity Prestige. They are very similar with two exceptions. The Craftsman has a 30 hp motor and comes with a 54 inch deck installed. The Craftsman is priced about $1400 less for the tractor and 54 inch deck.
