Was Skeptical Of Buying A Snow Blower "on-line", But Not Now!
I was skeptical of buying something like this over the internet. What if it won't start? What if it is missing parts? Well, I had no choice. My old Craftsman no longer ran and the local store was sold out of this model and I needed it fast. I couldn't be more happy with it. It was delivered in two days! The very little assembly that was required out of the box was a breeze. I read reviews about them being hard to start, but mine fired up on the 2nd pull. It has started easy every time since,... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Seams To Be A Great Little Blower- Shipping Could Be Better
We have only used it once, but it did a great job. Compared to the Toro's I usually run, it lacks in the fit and finish department. I think the box was dragged behind the delivery truck and appeared to be re-taped and banged up to the point where the handle frame was actually bent and the hand nut cracked.

85 Year Old Father
I bought this machine for my father for Christmas (he didn't want electric start) coincidentally we had 6 inches of snow on Christmas morning and he started it himself. He's 85 years old and was thrilled that he could start it on the second pull. It starts very easily and runs well. Clears snow very well also. before anyone asks the machine was ice cold when he started it, over night in an unheated shed - below freezing.

"Ordered two of these for my grown children for Christmas. Both were at my door within two days. They were put in the garage by the FedEx man and the wife wrapped them and covered them for Christmas. Opened them both for Christmas and immediately saw one of them was broken and racked but the box looked unharmed . Contacted customer service the following morning. Explained what happened and they were great. Sent them a few pics of the damage and the next day a call tag was at my house to pick up the broken one . Two days later a new one was at my door and both kids are now happy. Thanks for the great service!"

Better Than Expected
I have used this little machine for three years and it has been flawless! We just had a 14 in snow and even though this machine is only rated for up to 6 inches, it ate everything in front of it. Other than the plastic wheel getting clogged with ice and snow from time to time it's better than I expected and am very happy with this mighty machine.

Been Running Fine For Many Winters
I bought this blower in the middle of winter years ago, I paid too much for it, but I needed it and nobody had any snowblowers in stock.

I used the blower for many years, my sons and my daughters have all gone out to use it. None of them ever had a problem getting it started or using it. Works great.

The only problem I have had with it, is a nut and bolt on the side of the chute that came loose and was lost in the snow somewhere. I replace the nut and bolt, put a little Loctite on the... more
