Craftsman 305cc - Anyone Familiar with this one?

Hello all,

The following is a 24" 305cc B&S engine Craftsman snowblower, that's apparently only available on the Sears Canada website. There does not appear to be a model number for it.

CRAFTSMANŽ/MD 24'' 305cc Dual Stage Snow Thrower - Sears | Sears Canada

I'm attracted to it because of the large engine (and currently on sale for $999, from $1399). However, I can't find any reviews for it. Not sure if I want this one, vs the Toro 37775 or Ariens 920021.

Anyone have this model, or know any info? Reliability?

Thanks for your help.

Canadian and US Craftsman snowblowers are completely different machines, and have been for a long time..Canadian ones are slightly better. (although I still wouldnt buy one..)

This one happens to be a Husqvarna, which isnt bad, but isnt great.
you can do MUCH better: Ariens, Toro, Honda, Briggs & Stratton brands.
