Craftsman 10/32 Blower new to Me.

I was at the local repair shop the other week and the owner had taken a Craftsman 10/32 in trade. It is an older model C459-52252 with a 10 hp Tecumseh. Seems built like a tank. I got a pretty good deal - $250 CDN so I picked it up. I cannot find any info onlne about it. Does anyone know what the MTD or Craftsman US equivalent is? Any similar ones I can find are tracked and I cannot find any parts or manual listings.

Thanks in advance.

Finally got the blower home. It has an HMSK110 engine on it. I am not sure it is original. It has the throttle on the engine, but has a spot on the console for one that looks like it might have been used.

It is a beast. Should work well this winter.

Craftsman Brothers are now ready for the winter. Both from the 1980s.

Yes it should be good. I am trying to find an MTD equivalent to get a manual or parts list. It is a 1983? 10/32 Craftsman, but the engine has been changed to an HMsk110. There is a hole on the console for both a key and a throttle control, but both are on this engine like my other one. as it is a 459 model , it is a MTD. It seems to be a brute to turn at the end of the driveway. It had a chain on one wheel, but I took it off. The tires are 16x7.5x8 turf tires, but the driveway is flat.

The other one is an 8/25 built by Murray. I have manual and parts list for it and have replaced many of the wear items.

Thanks

I've got a C950-52810-8, 10HP 28" that I bought in 1988.... It has served me very well... In all those years in N. Ontario, it has only needed Minor mtce.
If it's hard to turn at the end of the driveway...it may be in 2-wheel drive. Mine can be changed to 1 wheel drive with a pin on the outter left wheel axle...turns way easier That way..
I'll still starts 1st pull...only used the elec start 3 times...(wife)..

Good luck with it...
