My Last Snow Thrower
Awesome machine. Buries the competition. Priced $1000 less than Honda's similar model which has 1/3 less power.
I love everything, except the power steering controls. It's impossible to disengage the left drive to turn left and then pull down on the drive lever for immediate turning when initiating forward motion. You must first start moving, then disengage with your index finger. If you are in any kind of a tight spot and need to turn left immediately from a complete stop, you can't do it. The only option, if possible, is to back up first, then go forward, then turn left. The other complaint on the steering controls is the adjustment. There is nothing in the manual that tells you how to do this. I assume it's at the bottom end of the engagement cables, but haven't verified that yet. If it is, the drive track must be removed for access. Why not put the adjustment turnbuckle at the top of the cable??????
