This particular model is manufactured by Husqvarna for Sears, under the Craftsman name. Since it is not a hydrostatic transmission (automatic), it most likely has 6 forward and two reverse speeds.
Best thing to do is check one out at your nearest Sears retail store !

Question

deal or no deal

This product Item #: 714 252 957 10 seems to have all the specs as the CRAFTSMAN®/MD Dual-Stage Mid-Frame 27'' Snowblower with Power Steering Item #: 712 152 839 10 which is priced $1399.99 (Regular $1599.99).

There are two differences: price and torque...This product has 14.5 ft lbs torque where as the other has 13.5 ft lbs. Also, this product sells for $1288.99 (regular $1699.99) Am I missing something here???? So ..... what's the deal???

I'm no expert, but the way I see it:
This product is a newer '09 model (52 957) which has a bigger engine (14.5 TP) and costs $111.00 less than last years '08 version (52 839) with the smaller engine (13.5 TP), . . . sounds like a deal to me !

This B&S engine uses 0.8 litres of detergent type SAE5W-30 or 10W-30 (API SG-SL) regular or synthetic oil. Refill the engine through the dipstick tube, and ensure the level is at the FULL mark on the oil cap dipstick after an oil change, with the dipstick cap tightened securely.
(refer to your owner's manual)
Ordinary plumber teflon tape can be used on the threads of the drain plug.

Friction Drive is how engine power is utilized to move the snow blower wheels (forward or reverse) via a drive disc that has a rubber coated outer surface that moves against a flat surfaced drive plate. All snowblowers without automatic or hydrostatic transmissions have some form of 'friction drive' to propel them. A friction drive machine requires periodic adjustment as the rubber drive disc surface wears , and will eventually require replacement depending on the usage of the machine, and the snow conditions it is exposed to.
