I know nothing about the machine, but the specifications are certainly impressive.
Be sure to let us know if it lives up to the hype.

Here's a link to several reviews of a very similar machine.

Craftsman

Keep in mind that the reviews are on a Sears web-site, but it doesn't look like they edited out any negative comments.
It seems that owners are pretty happy with the machine, less so with Sears.

I just bought the same one, the American guys on here will bash it a bit cuz they dont get the same craftsman units down there, these are all made by Husqvarna, I know the local Husky rep and he had a look at mine and said other than the auger bearings and the skids it is identical to the husky model. In fact if you look closely in the sears buyers guide the pic of this blower is actually a husky with a photoshop craftsman decal over the husky markings. It is orange in the photo instead of red!

I swapped out the auger bearings for the husky ones and installed roller skids.
Now all my neighbours think I'm nuts cuz I have been running it up and down the driveway in the rain to get used to the controls

Wow, looking over that list of features, I can understand why you'd be excited. Don't worry about bashing, there'll probably be more envy than anything. Never quite understood why there are such differences in what's available in the North American markets. I've got a Honda HS622 that's no longer available in the U.S., but from what I see, it's still available in Canada.

I kept saying that if I never got to use my new snowblower this season that would be OK too but now I really cant wait for it to snow.
We had one small dump and since then we have been having unprecedented warm weather.
