Got this one for several jobs. Started off with the blade for the snow, but that proved inadequate so got a snow thrower. Converted that all to power as the next project is a shelter cabin, and won't be able to work the hand controls (raising and lowering, chute angle and direction) without leaving major openings. Tiller is an Ariens that used to be powered by a rear PTO and attached to a 3 pt. hitch, neither of which the Craftsman has. It's now self-powered and raised and lowered with an electric winch.
