while i love the 5/23 craftsman that is at my sister place they are under powered and a bit on the small side. if you got permission to get a new machine may be best to just go new and maybe keep the craftsman as a backup. so far i have been pretty happy with my 26" machine. it is about the perfect size for me and my driveway. i found the 30" machine too big and clumsy and hard to squeeze between vehicles.
