The Craftsman 179cc 22 is a manually steered, two-stage snow blower designed to clear a maximum width of 22”. Featured is a 179cc 4-cycle OHV Craftsman Engine, a push-button electric start system, and a manually controlled chute that can be rotated 190 degrees. It’s relatively small, so it’s easy to store. But it is heavy at 126-lbs, which means older and lighter people may have some difficulty handling it. Also included is a steel (not plastic) auger and impeller for blasting through snow. Unfortunately the 179cc has been reported to have poor traction, making it hard to make tight turns. Plus the tires lose air quickly and it has a tendency to clog up. It is however considered a good buy versus other brands.
