Well my trash picked/rehabbed 1995 5hp/22" Craftsman did well with Saturday's snow. During the summer, I put on a new carb, belts, cleaned up & re-painted some items. The snow was heavy so I had to move slowly & let it eat, pausing every 5' or so. Perhaps 5hp is a little anemic but it sure beats shoveling. Pictured is my 24 yo nephew who's never run a snowblower, lawnmower, etc.
