This is a well built snowblower for consumer use, and it is quite affordable too! I am very impressed with the overall quality and performance of the snowthrower I purchased from MTD Power Equipment last year. I was looking at a Craftsman model and I realized that MTD makes most of the consumer models under several different brand names. I bought some extra shear pins and a spark plug from Sears, it was more convenient than ordering from the manufacturer and Craftsman models use the same parts.
This machine has a low cost version of the Snow King engine built by Tecumseh, it is less money than a snowblower equipped with the Tecumseh brand engine. I can run this snowblower for an hour on a quart of gasoline, the fuel tank holds 2 quarts. This snow blower is a 2-stage model and it will handle wet snow, sleet, heavy snow left by a plow and it cruises right along in lighter snow.
I read some reviews that are opinionated by people who do not understand machinery or the physics associated with the operation of a snowblower. I ask you to overlook the negative opinions left by some consumers. I am very satisfied with the 24 inch snowblower I purchased from MTD and I believe it is a well built piece of equipment.
I also run Amsoil in my equipment to prolong the engine life.
