Final sale? I assume yes as that's what it says on the site. Makes me a bit weary because Remington isn't exactly a brand name in the space afaik. Great price for the specs though

These blowers use MTD powermore engines. It’s good machine with proper maintenance and aftermarket parts are readily available online.

It's a MTD produced machine - so shares parts with other MTD oem blowers - cub cadet and Troy-bilt

MTD is now owned by Stanley / Black and Decker

I checked the mtd site - looks like this particular machine uses the standard / proven friction disk drive, not the failure prone "plastic" case / CVT transmission

I have this.
Paid 550. Few years back.
Play around with the website and you may get an extra 40-50 off in your cart. It usually pops up as a banner. At the time, I scored 50 off $500 or more.

It starts on the first pull every time. I never use the electric start. It's probably good if your older and can't pull the string fast enough.

The only con is no heating handle, no light, and to control the chute direction, you have to spin the knob.
Again, it's 500 bucks vs 1000+ bucks.

I recommend!

I have one, bought 5 or 6 years ago. I do no maintenance worth mentioning. Had a problem in the beginning, the auger was not spinning, I fixed it myself with the help of some Youtube video.

This is a great price, a bit lower than what I paid all those years ago. The only annoying thing is the way the chute turns. My driveway is small, and I have to do a lot of turns, so it's very inconvenient. I would run right now and buy another one if it wasn't for that. Otherwise, solid, powerful, reliable machine.

I haven't seen a floor model.
Does it take a lot of cranks to change directions? Do you find the chute tilt adjustment to be flimsy depending on how heavy the snow is, like pushing the tilt up?
Will the plastic chute last the life of the machine?

I'm debating there's a craftsman on sale too but it's $300 more just for the metal chute.

Yes, and yes. The attachment of the handle coil needs to be tightened from time to time, like every couple of years, otherwise the chute won't spin.

Probably not. The "teeth" where the coil actions on it are already a bit worn on mine.

Up to you. I will never pay $300 extra just for the metal chute. A 3D printer is much cheaper, and can be used to print a reinforcement.

I would pay $300 more only for a machine with a joystick controlled chute. Or maybe not, I actually manage to do OK with this one. I don't know :)

Yah, makes sense. I think craftsman also uses MTD engine so I see this just being paying for metal chute and a different paint.
Was the box compact enough to be lifted and fit in a SUV like rav4/crv?
I can't find any unboxing of this model to gauge on the footprint.

Debating if I want to attempt pick up or just delivery for piece of mind.

Got the wife to pick it up, as I'm laid up with Covid. they used a forklift to load it into the box of my pickup. It's pretty large.

So it's on wood crate?
Can somebody take a photo of how large it is?

We have an old SUV with around 40 cu.ft space, not sure if it'll fit.
Also how I'm going to take it out Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

It fit just fine in my wife's mid size SUV, or the minivan we had at that time, cannot recall. It is heavy as hell though. Big cardboard box, definitely not a full size wood skid.

Ours an old Highlander/RX300. Not sure if it'll fit.
Also, is it possible for 2 x under 6ft 160lb guys to lift it out of the SUV?

If that's iffy, I'll just go with delivery.

Very curious if it'll fit too. Any pictures would be good?
