New 2015 Craftsman and Craftsman Professional Snow Blowers

I like Craftsman because:  For most of us a Craftsman has the right residential snow blower that will get the job done quickly and last us years. It doesn’t matter if you want the least expensive snow blower, the best value or (new for 2015) a high-capacity machine, Craftsman has a snow blower for you. I like the fact that no matter where you live in the U.S. you can easily get service on your gas snow blower at your home. I like the fact that if you do need a maintenance part, or belt you can find your manual, order it anytime day or night and have it sent right to your house. I like the fact that you can order any of their snow blowers online and pick it up at a local Sears store or have it delivered right to your home. I like the fact that if you want you can go into any Sears Full Line store and a trained associate will help you get the right snow blower for your home. I like the fact that all of their snow blowers are value priced and they always offer extra incentives like free shipping or and extra percentage off to order it online.  I like the fact that they regularly update their snow blower selection to offer the latest designs and make the improvements you want.

Yes, there are many good snow blowers on the market but Craftsman consistently makes good quality snow blowers for your home. In particular since 2010 their snow blowers have just worked well. With the exception of one the new 2015 Craftsman Snow Blowers follow in that tradition.

Take a Look At The New Craftsman Snow Blowers For 2015.

2015 Craftsman Professional 33″ 357cc Two Stage Snowthrower with Power Steering

2015 Craftsman Professional 33 inch 357cc Snowthrower

2015 Craftsman Professional 33 inch 357cc Snowthrower

This Craftsman Snow Blower has been around for quite a while in various colors and it just does not get the publicity it deserves. This is a very powerful and high-capacity snow blower designed to handle the deepest snows.  This is a big snow blower with industries largest 16 inch front auger and 16 inch impeller. It gets the work done by brute force. I highly recommend this snow blower if you get heavy snow or you have a large area to clear.  It comes with all the options including power steering, heated handgrips, drift cutters and a heavy-duty chute.  This snow blower is expensive but worth the money if you have a large driveway that gets lots of snow.

Features:

  • Six forward and two reverse, power-propelled speeds, the Craftsman 33″ Dual-Stage Gas Snow Blower can power through any kind of snow
  • 33-inch clearing width and 22-inch intake height lets you clear a wide driveway with ease
  • Remote chute control and joystick pitch control allow easy adjustment of height and distance of snow discharge
  • Extreme capacity discharge chute throws large volumes of snow in a tight pattern avoiding snow blow back
  • Single hand operation eliminates starts and stops, allowing you to use the other hand for on-the-go adjustments
  • 357cc four-cycle OHV engine comes with trigger controlled Zero-turn steering technology for better maneuverability
  • 16″ x 6.5″ X-Trac tires and tool-less drift cutters are ideal for use in heavy snow conditions
  • Heated hand grips and mitten-grip starter handle for comfortable operations in cold temperatures
  • Large deluxe Glide-Tech skid shoes keep driveway damage-free
  • Two year limited warranty. Optional 5 year Protection Plan available

2015 Craftsman Professional 45 inch 420cc Snowthrower

2015 Craftsman Professional 45 inch 420cc Snowthrower

While I highly recommend the 33 inch version of this snow blower I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SNOW BLOWER. Why? It’s too big.

The biggest issues with this snow blower is it’s size. On large flat areas it works well, but it does not have enough traction to effectively turn the snow blower on sloped pavement or gravel driveways. Owners that even tried chains and removing the outside duals and it still is hard to steer.

The second issue is the amount of snow it can handle. It has a habit of burning up impeller belts in heavy, wet snow. It just takes in too much snow for the single belt to handle the load. If you do feel this is the snow blower for you – order two spare impeller belts right away and learn how to change it.

Features:

  • With six forward and two reverse, power-propelled speeds you can power through everything from light powdered snow to heavy wet slush
  • A 45-inch clearing width and a 22-inch intake height lets you clear a wide driveway with ease
  • Extreme capacity discharge chute throws large volumes of snow in a tight pattern avoiding snow blow back
  • Single hand operation enhances the ease for on-the-go adjustments
  • 420cc four-cycle OHV Craftsman engine comes with trigger controlled Zero-turn steering technology for better maneuverability
  • 16″ x 6.5″ X-Trac tires and tool-less drift cutters are ideal for use in heavy snow conditions
  • Heated hand grips and mitten-grip starter handle for comfortable operation in cold temperatures
  • Large deluxe Glide-Tech skid shoes keep driveway damage-free
  • It’s available in a black/red finish
  • Item Weight: 490 lbs.
  • Two year limited warranty
