The Craftsman 45 Inch Dual Stage Snow Blower is very big indeed. So big in fact that you are very unlikely to find it being used by many individual homeowners, unless they happen to have very big and long driveways. This beast is powered by a 0.42 liter, 4 stroke OHV engine. It can be started by either plugging it in and pressing a button or by using the mitten grip, pull cord recoil system.
The Craftsman 45 inch 2 stage snow thrower sits on twin wheels (that’s 2 wheel on either side of the axle, so 4 wheels in total). These X Trac wheels each have a width of 0.17 m (6.5 inches) and a diameter of 0.41 m (16 inches). These 4 wheels provide the machine with excellent grip during operation, even when the machine is working on slippery, compacted snow. The clearing width is an amazing 1.14 m (45 inches) while it has an intake height of 0.56 m (22 inches). This means that it should be able to handle practically all depths of snow in just one pass. The serrated steel auger easily crushes and grinds up snow and even small debris that enters it. This snow then gets thrown out the top of the machine by the force of the 0.41 m (16 inches) impeller blade.
The snow gets channeled through the plastic chute and away from the clearing area. The chute and deflector on the Craftsman 45 inch dual stage snowblower are both controlled remotely by the operator from the operator’s station. The great thing about this snow thrower is that you are able to keep operating it with just one hand, leaving the other hand free to make adjustments to the chute and deflector on the fly. If you are looking for smaller snow blowers, then check out the Craftsman 26 Inch Dual Stage Snow Blower or the Craftsman 24 Inch Dual Stage Snow Blower.
