Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in Canada I bought this unit because you don't need a wide 48 inch blower to clear the front wheels, plus the lighter it is in the front, less weight you need in the back, and easer on those little front tires. this blower does not have a worm gear to wear out and break, it has a side chain just like the blowers on the back of larger tractors, I operate one at work for 25 years, so I have experience. I took my time installing the blower about six hours, the instructions were well done no problems with the install, you do have to take the mower off, be carful of the wiring for the winch, that it's clear of the muffler and hood. My tractor is the 22hp craftsman, the blower fit well,you will need chains and the weights on the back or you will get tire spin,I have used it once in 6 inches of wet snow and it throws the snow were you want it.The winch is fast, I found that on a gravel driveway you might need to put the shoes down all the way till the ground gets frozen, the 22hp engine has lots of power for this blower.I am very happy with this Canadian made blower attachment.

Will this snow blower use the same frame mount and lift kit as snow blade?

I want to switch from a blade to this snow blower. I currently have the tractor 601270 with the CRAFTSMAN®/MD Snow Blade 48'' with Electric Lift Kit. I was wondering, to save install time, whether this snow blower happens to use the same frame mounts and lift kit as my blade?

Hello Blot, Our supplier has advised that the CRAFTSMAN®/MD Snow Blade 48'' with Electric Lift Kit and CRAFTSMAN®/MD 40'' Compact 2-stage Snow Blower with Electric Lift Kit, item number 717961822, both use the the exact same mounting kit. Thank you for shopping at Sears and have a great day!
