Beware MTD

I purchased this machine because it had several features that sounded pretty good. Two of these were the lock down feature to free up your left hand, and the remote chute control. Turns out you need to keep your left hand on the remote chute control because heavy snow forces the chute upward. This leaves you only one hand most times to keep the machine steady, which is not an easy task. The light is weak and more of a decoration than useful. Now - here's why i say "beware of MTD". Two years in a row the machine's wheels locked in the off season, due to a design flaw. This past winter i had to wait 85 days for repairs under warranty because MTD ran out of the part. I complained to MTD and they completely ignored me. I then went to the Better Business Bureau and they were no help. I would be wary of MTD due to the attitude of the manufacturer. I would be happy to provide more detail to anyone who's interested so this doesn't happen to anyone else.

Date Purchased: Dec/04

Recommend: No
Extreme Auger System with 6 shear pins

Remote chute control does not lock.
Forward in speed one is way too fast.
Difficult to control.
Design flaw so wide spread the manufacturer ran out of replacement parts, but no recall.
Unprofessional attitude of MTD.
