I feel the chill in the air. I bought a Toro 6.5hp snowthrower from Wise sales on ebay. It came overnight. $550 later I have less room in the garage.

Same model was $100 more locally and I would have had to pay sales tax. Saved about $150.

Where do you live... No snow for you this year.

Not yet but the weather guys are predicting a lot this year due to the weather pattern this summer. We will have to see. I hate to buy shit when they are in demand and you have to wait in line and pay premium for something that was on sale just a few weeks ago.

This sucker should last me 5-10 years and save me from a heartattack.

Sounds like a good deal.

You just bought insurance for no snow for a year. Good purchase and no heart attack or bad back.

it should last longer than 5-10 years. I've had a Murray last me 15 years so far w/ minimal maintenance. Remember to shut it off before clearing the chute w/ your hand. I don't know why some people don't do that................but they don't.

Bought if off ebay. They seem to be a good outfit. I bought my Honda generator from them. They have free shipping and because I live out of state, no sales tax! That makes me the happiest.
I end up saving a few hundred.

Don't worry. I don't know everything about you.
