Help me identify this self propelled Craftsman single stage blower

I ran across this by accident and self propelled single stage blowers are not easiest thing to find.
Not sure of the width... 21-24" perhaps ?
Anyone have a model number ?

thanks !

I've seen plenty of the 20" versions, but never this one.
Looks larger than 20 inches to me.

Here is a resized still shot from the vid and a similar large single stage.
Any thoughts on the yellow one ?




Here is video of the 24" yellow Craftsman.
An ID on either one would be helpful.
Right about the 11-12 second mark is a good side shot.
The poster says it's a 24" Craftsman on one of his other videos.

No doubt...that machine is a little wider with a considerably larger bucket height.

I'm not yet convinced that it's even a Sears/Craftsman... so definitely intrigued!

I found what looks to be the same machine listed on an auction site from last year.
Looks to be the same machine.
No model number though.
Says it's a 5/20



... and now I know what to look for, I found a few others listed in Canada, so maybe it was a Canada only model.
The person who posted the video of the yellow 24" machine is in Canada as well.

A few more pics of the 5/20

It appears it came in 7hp 22" flavor as well...
Circa 1970-1974 (according to the poster on Pinterest)

It looks like that machine can move a gigantic quantity of snow in no time.

Ariens Compact 24 with B&S Polar Force engine, Craftsman 9522 SS with B&S Polar Force engine, Yards Works 21'' SS with Tecumseh 7 hp engine.

Sibling Found

Hi everyone ! I' m from Ontario, Canada...I have this same snow blower but it originally was green. It used to be my godfathers, then my dads and now mine. The one pictured is much better looking than mine but it still runs. Everyone in our family hates to use it !...LOL. My neighbours ask if it' s from the "Cold War"...hahaha !!

The blower just won' t die. Before receiving it from my dad, I was using my own blower that is much newer...but it gave out. Now I' m in the process of giving it some tlc. Can' t find any markings, labels, stampings, identification names and/or numbers on the body...due to my dad having painted it.


Some help would be great in identifying it.

I've seen pictures of this model before. Unfortunately I have no info on model number. If I had to guess, I'd lay my money on it being from the 60's or thereabouts.
