    Welcome over Hitt! The thread would not be the same without a complaint! That does suck though. Sure you have gas and 40:1 in it? Sounds like the fuel line. Hope mine starts later,although our snow is expected to turn to rain at some point tonight.

    I think it would be hard to find a new snowthrower now. Everyone is out of them here.

    Wiz!

    Good Morning Everyone. We are still in the midst of a snowstorm....and it seems if it isn't snowing it's colder then warts on a frog. Will be glad when this winter is over.

    Neighbor told me that the Farmer's Almanac predicted this cold and snowy winter. She also said our summer prediction is hot.....just the way I like it.....come on warm weather I know you can get here in 3-4 months.

    Yes I'm sure the fuel is good. I even shot some starting fluid in it and it still wouldn't start back. It was a yard sale buy several years ago. It's only about 35 years old. Maybe I can get it fixed under warranty. It just really needs to be replaced. It's been going downhill for a couple years.

    Reminds me when I moved to Houston. I sold my snow blower. The guy called me the next day, and said it was a piece of S----. I went over and found a rock in the Auger that sheared the drive pin.

    No snow. Found out he got a load of stone for his driveway, and tried to use the snow blower to spread the stone.

    Just when you think you can't be surprised by someone's stupidity, there's a story like that.

    Hi PT! It is pretty clean here! Had a hard time pressing the button on the old thread. Lot's of good memories there!

    Man! We are supposed to get another 5-7 inches of snow today and I have to work tonight! Getting there will be easy,getting home a different story!

    Wiz!
    that i believe, wiz! and ''off to see the wiz'' is not a bad title. different, yes, but maybe also more fitting for now. and the memories we'll keep

    LOL
    Moving gravel with a snow blower. That ranks right up there with the fellas that were using a lawn mower to trim hedges.
    Two guys, one mower, couple of ladders....... you know that didn't end well!

    After our apocalyptic, city closing, two inches of snow on Tuesday we're now in the mid-60's. Go figure.
