Certified 224cc 2-Stage Gas Snowblower, 24-in

Has anybody here ever hear about these?… I walked in my local store a few days ago and saw these machines… not that I'm interested in buying one but I'm wondering if it's they
're made by someone else and re-branded under the "Certified" name? They want $800. for this model and they list larger ones too (27" and 30").

Never heard of them and they installed the tires facing the wrong direction. Just speculating here but they're more than likely just another chinese made, low quality blower. Those rakes look a little flimsy. Matter of fact I bet that whole machine has lots of flex built into it. The more I look at it the less I'm liking what I see.

Head north to your nearest Canadian Tire store and take a look at them. Beautiful country, friendly people, nice road trip.

If Canada is not on your itinerary guess you could look at them in the states, but I'm thinking you will pass Joe.

I'm thinking you're correct @Zavie

I noticed yesterday I'm getting really close to post # 5000. Next post is it.
