Bought this after reading reviews. Definitely get the lift gate service. This beast is heavy and comes palletized. Assembly is fairly straight forward and takes about one hour. I was missing the handle spacers, but Jack's got them to me in a couple of
days. Fired right up the first time. Be careful when you first engage the wheels. In the high speed setting, the machine takes off. Yanked itself right out of my hands. No snow yet, so I haven't had a chance to use it, although no doubt in my mind it has the
power. Love having all the controls at the handles, much more convenient when changing the direction and pitch of the discharge chute. Also bought the cover, it's a tight fit, but once you get used to how it fits, not a problem.
