SnowJoe has a corporate office in NJ, but all their products are 100% made in China.
They have no relation to MTD.
Good fact to know but however the engine MTD uses is NOT made by MTD and seems to be the same on both from the chinese factory, May be a few things different like on the Ariens vrs Husqvarna engines, Same engine but different size shaft, Ariens has a 1" and Husqvarna has a 3/4 but both the same cc and same parts made by LCT so the service manual for the MTD engine should still be relevant for his repair.
Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.
