Tackle light to moderate snowfalls, including the tough and compacted end-of-driveway snow left behind by the snow plow, with a Briggs & Stratton 1022EX Single-Stage Snow Blower with SnowShredder Serrated Auger technology. Powered by a durable Briggs & Stratton 950 Snow Series Engine with convenient push button electric start, this snow blower has easy-to-use features such as a remote chute rotation crank and quick-adjust deflector to help you tackle what Mother Nature has in store this winter.

  • Clear heavy and wet snow down to the pavement with SnowShredder Serrated Auger Technology. Multiple serrated surfaces provide advanced ice chopping and snow clearing power.
  • Specially designed to start strong and help you power through the toughest winter conditions, the Briggs & Stratton 950 Snow Series Engine offers uncompromised power to help you get the job done.
  • Push button electric starting makes for quick and easy starts down to 20 degrees below zero.
  • Easily rotate the chute 200 degrees from left-to-right on-the-go with the remotely located chute rotation crank.
  • Quick-adjust chute deflector allows you to easily change the height and distance snow is thrown with a simple squeeze of the chute-mounted handle.
  • The wear-resistant rubber edged auger cleans snow down to the pavement and helps propel the snow blower forward.
  • Sturdy construction with a one-piece auger housing with ball bearings provides extra long life.

Has all the features I wanted.
Waiting on first snow to try out. Researched several snow blowers and kept coming back to this one. Auger shredder, chute control from behind blower, electric start/pull start, good horse power, Briggs and Stratton name and reputation. Will be back to review once I get hands on experience once it’s snows.

It maybe seen as a smaller snowblower... but, it makes up for that in power and performance. Throws snow like it hates winter and works hard so you don't have to. Start every time! I already reccomend it to my br in-law.

Love it
This thing is a beast. Didn't expect it to do as good as it did. But handled 2.5 to 3 ft of snow like it was a 2 stage

I have only used the blower a couple of times, so far so good. 1 pull and it starts right away. Easy to maneuver. I got to help clean deck when I'm away for awhile.

More than Enough
Having to replace a worn-out snowblower, I did some research and found this B&S model. This machine works better than expected and handles not only the light and fluffy snow, but the heavy and wet snow as well. This model is simple but effective - and was available at a great price!

Worked like a charm!!
Got this last January when my old snowblower which lasted 14 winters, literally fell apart. I wanted another Craftman similar to what I had, but I was concerned with Sears bankruptcy proceedings they may not honor the warranty if something happened to it.
The Briggs and Stratton I purchased was similar so I bought it.
Only used it once, but it worked great!! I’ll know more next winter if it stays consistent or not.

One pull start. Electric starter if needed.
Got it on time for a big snowstorm. Winter past in Toronto had 2 to 3 feet of snow on my deck cleared it off with no problem. Great it has a rubber impeller. Also had to clean in front of my driveway so I could get out. Again worked great.

great product for the price
Got a chance to use the snow blower a few times and I'm happy thus far. The only issue I have is the exhaust pipe is in a bad spot in the rear of the engine and blows the exhaust fumes in my face. I wish that the exhaust was directed off to the side of engine.
