New Craftsman 26" track snow blower - Boxing day special!!!! Original Message Dec 26, 2007 4:53 pm
Lined up this morning at Sears for the door crasher special to buy a snowblower. They had 4 - 5hp Craftsmans up for grabs but unfortunatley i was 7-8th in line. One the four were gone they announced they had 3 'higher end' What I purhcased was a Craftsman 9 hp 26" track snow blower model # C459-527860. I cannot find this particular model on any of the Sears websites so I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this model.
Couple of questions:
Is track drive better/worse then the two wheeled blowers? What's the benefit to track drive?
I put the chute together and fixed the handlebars in place and wanted to move the blower to a different part of my garage before adding the agas and giving it a run. I couldn't move the blower. I checked to see if it had a neutral position on the stick shift but if didn't. Does anyone know how i can move this snowblower without starting it up?
†† The MTDís with the trigger control were fantastic to handle and just about zero turn.† I only got to drive them around with no snow but expect they would be as good as my friends Honda track which was not as easy to handle.
