Hopefully someone will tell him or her to hang onto it and remove the front propeller and sawzall the interior one and send MTD a wonderful letter commenting on his or her experience with it.

Except for that I would want to hold on to it as it has the metal chute and spout.

That thing looks like it was designed by a government committee rather than engineers.....

No thanks......
