The dealer called me this morning.

Saw one of these at Chinadian Tire yesterday, nice machine. Really like the "Transformers" styling around the headlights.
Keep us up to date on performance.

Cheers

CT is where I first seen one. The problem buying from CT is they don't service the machines and they are not considered dealers. They are retailers. Since they are not a dealer you also don't qualify for the rebates and if it does need service good luck. Plus they charge $30 for setup, the dealer didn't. Extra charges and rebates aside I won't buy from any outlet that doesn't service what they sell.

But I did play around with it a bit in the garage last night. Sprayed all the moving bits with silicone, removed the wheels and put anti-seize on the axles. It had never had gas in it before but it still started on the second pull. As for the headlights they do look nice. They're adequate and will help you to see but that's about it. At least with 2 headlights there's no large shadow cast by the chute so that's nice. But over all I'm pleased with it. As for how it blows snow that might be a while yet.

You must feel like a kid on Christmas morning! Keep us posted on your impressions of that Husky once you get to putting it through it's paces.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

According to the Canadian Tire flyer, there is a mail-in rebate for the Husqvarna snowblowers plus 12 month no fee no interest financing.
