My snowblower arrived fully assembled from Jack's. The only adjustment needed was the for the scrapper & skids.
I did not order lift-gate service, however, it arrived UPS freight, which provided lift-gate service. The UPS guy even placed the pallet into my garage.
This unit runs fairly quiet with lots of power. The engine is a Loncin LC180FDS. It specs out at 18.5N.m or
13.645 ft.lbs. Which puts its at 9.35HP. Even though all snow blower engines are now made in China, this
one has triple piston rings and oversize crank bearings. Toro has it listed as a "premium engine". It starts on the first pull and runs well under load. I've added an extra light to the front of the machine to catch the blind spot created by the chute and
engine, and simply leave the hand-warmers off, so as not to burn out the stator. The manual that comes with it is very detailed and explains how to adjust and maintain your snowblower. I'm very happy with my purchase!
