How ridiculous on a scale from 1 to 10

I've had my Deluxe 30 for 2 months and the Ariens emblem came off today. It's just glued on with a dab of adhesive. It didn't stand a chance! I think that's pretty ridiculous. I'd give that at least an 8 on a scale from 1 to 10. It represents the brand! It shouldn't fall off after 5 hours of service.
Good news is that it's the only complaint I have about this machine.

Have you considered putting the actual subject in your thread title? In that way others can quickly and easily see whether your thread is of interest to them, without having to click and open it.

We all find different things "ridiculous"

While I agree it shouldn't come off that soon after purchasing, with that said, a lot of manufacturers do exactly the same thing: glue or stick on their logos. Nothing new. Been going on for years. The days of the steel badge logo riveted on our mostly long gone. Every penny counts, and it's got to go to the shareholders.

Well.. I tend to remove the emblems off of my vehicles.. I am not getting paid to advertise for them, after all.. but yeah I would be a bit sad as well. reminds me of the bow ties on Chevy vehicles around 2010-2014 they would fade/crack super easily. I deleted mine Looks much better deleted.

They still do, GM has no pride in their bowtie emblem! I own a 2016 Trax and had to paint mine 3 years ago because the bowtie was already blistered. It was a year and a half old at the time.

Just leave it off and store it away. In 30 years when you restore the machine youíll be ahead of the game with a shiny new emblem thatís probably unobtanium! Kidding, of course.

Last machine on a Friday build and they were in a hurry

If you were going to reattach I wonder if it would be better to try hot melt or some 3M #03615 super strength molding tape ??
