Delivered over a day and a half late.
Shipping company claimed it had to do with the weather, even though this was the warmest winter.
Shipping company also didn't want to use a pallet jack even though there was $50 charge for the lift gate. Who did they expect to take it off the lift gate...? Lesson learned when they call to confirm delivery remind the customer service representative
to remind the dispatcher to remind the driver to keep the pallet jack in the truck.
Eventually they used their brain and delivered it with pallet jack in the truck to off load it.
The Snow blower was packaged well by Ariens. Assembly took 20 minutes + 5 minutes to sip a beer while double checking the assembly. Starting the Snowblower to 3 pulls. I will probably have to buy ear protection for the snow blower.
Other than that built like a tank expect to keep it for couple decades. Very happy with the purchase.
Waiting for snow, had 3/4" this morning in North Jersey hopefully we get enough to justify starting the tank.
