The Sears 88799 has a 9hp L-head engine, 29 inch clearing width and 21 inch intake height. It starts easily with the pull start, but I use the electric start most of the time. This is a basic machine that works great in moderate to deep snow. In deeper snow I lock both wheels, and it gets good traction even on a 15 deg incline. It will chomp through up to 2 feet of packed snow in the end of drive with ease, in 1st or 2nd gear. I do most of my snow clearing in 3rd gear.

Date Purchased: September 2002
Price Paid: $689
Recommend: Yes
Pros:
Plenty of power
Wide clearing width
High handles
Good value
Optional 5 year in-home Sears warranty covers normal wear parts including belts and friction disk

Cons:
No headlight
L-head instead of OHV engine
Low shifting lever
Consumer grade
