Not so much for the machine , But I always have to laugh at the extremes people go to in order to make something sound good.

 

This snowblower is pretty much the best snowblower ever made. Moves snow faster that a fleet of county plow trucks, the snow pretty much runs away in fear!! It has so much suction power of snow that pets and small livestock needs to be kept away for fear of being drawn in.

But enough about how amazing it is, here are some specs on it. Craftsman Trac Drive, thats right TRACKS basically the same thing as a Sherman tank. 23" 2-stage of snow destroying and moving awesomeness, 5hp of pure bread Kentucky derby winning horse power. 6 speed forward, 2 speed reverse NASA spec. transmission.

This is just more snow moving machine than I can handle!

P.O.S if you ask me,,, I don't care if its a Honda or a Craftsmen,,,friend had a Honda, blew snow a country mile,, took forever to turn around and not a good thing when you got out into the street,and some wingnut crest's  the hill near his driveway going to fast and your standing there with a bull dozer with two handles on it !

NASA spec trans???  S'plain that to me.  Only 6 horse and dual stage, with 6spds??  Seems like small engine for all that. Not familiar with blowers with "Suction" power. That a new idea?

I have the 8hp version of what's pictured in the ad, with its factory original owns manual, even. I saw nothing listed like this ad says in the manual...

so if his 5HP is "all that" then the 8HP is "all that and more"  And add th fact that it is getting an 11HP transplant, ohhh wow, huh?
