Snow Blower Corrosion at Big Box Stores

As I was walking into my local Big Box Store this morning, I saw this.

I could not believe my eyes. Here are brand new blowers, sitting in sidewalk salt, just rusting away. I thought, wait till the people on SBF see this!

Just another reason I'm glad I work with my local Ariens dealer

Ironically, that's probably sidewalk salt sitting directly on that cheap metal.

Well, lawsuits from people slipping are more damaging than a little corrosion, I suppose

Really? You guys are complaining about this? I guess you all missed this one from before:



https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...wer-abuse.html

Just kidding, yea good reasons not to buy from these people. Suppose maybe you can use it as a bargaining tool and get them at a discount.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Need to find a happy medium between sitting in ice, and sitting salt. LOL
