The Craftsman 179cc 24 is a highly rated, two-stage snow blower designed to clear a maximum width of 24”. As the big brother to the 22” model, the 179cc 24 maintains the same 179cc 4-cycle OHV Craftsman Engine and push-button electric start system. But it adds along power steering for single-hand operation, a remote-controlled chute that can be rotated 190 degrees, and better quality X-Trac tires. All in all, the superior 24 model is easier to use and maneuver, especially through tight turns. It’s also fuel efficient and capable of devouring snow, though there have been concerns about the engine’s longterm durability.
