Buying snowblower online?

Hi all - rookie poster still...So forgive me if this breaks any rules for overt commercialism.

Am just trying to get me a blower before winter ends.
Not the best time I know.

But is it ok to buy from online dealers? Or is it too much of a hassle?

I would much rather buy from a local dealer but the ones around here in Central VA seem to give me the usual lines about how manufacturers have shifted productions to mowers or there is no inventory around.

I know I can't get a Honda online but darn good American made Ariens or Toros can be had.

You feedback would be appreciated.

I've ordered three Ariens on-line. Everything has been good with all machines.

I agree. I wanted an Ariens 921036 and could not get one locally. I found them online and was very happy with the transaction. There are a few online. I used McHenry Power Equipment Inc., Outdoor Power Equipment McHenry IL a friend used Honda Generators - Snow Blowers - Lawn Mowers - Zero Turn Mowers.

I am sure other members can give you recommendations.

Honda's can also be purchased online.

Highly recommend Speedway Sales for online snow blower purchases. They carry a wide selection of brands.

Hmm. Unless you have a particular reason for buying a blower in Virginia this late in the season, you may be better off to just wait until next season. Who know what the new models have in store for us! Robert from Honda mentioned a new American made 2 stage slated for release later this year! I can't wait to see it!

If your set on getting one now, you're in the right place to get recommendations of reputable online dealers.

Be sure to let us know what you decide!

Yes I am dead set on getting something now.
Guys & power equipment you know?!LOL!

It's funny, the year I put off buying a blower, it's snow 2x in the last 7 days here. Anyhow, would love to know more about the online vendors out there from every1.

Thanks for chiming in!
