Wasn't Amico a gasoline brand years ago?

Regardless of who makes it, and how it came to be badged an Amico, a quick look at it , it appears to be quite the machine for 699.00.

Probably Chinese. Guaranteed to perform superbly until removed from the box.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

Looks like a good buy, until you need parts, when it is probably a Good Bye !

It was a guy driving in a "talking car" (it was the 1980s), he's talking to himself when a mechanical voice comes on and says "fuel is low". He says "okay I'll just pull in here and get some gas" and in response the voice says "no, Amoco".

Engine looks a lot like the new powermore engines, wouldn’t touch one either.

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.

I believe they are made by DR Power Equipment, out of Vermont, which is a Subsidiary of Generac Power Systems, Inc.

I will call them later when they open.

Many of these companys making Chinese goods will create a US mailing address just so they can list it as a contact address, and just to generate some fake respectability, so people might be fooled into thinking it might actually be a US company and perhaps US made.

There might be a few office workers for the company at their US mailing address, but the equipment is 100% Chinese made.
