Power Land Snow Blower

Well I have to give a word of warning and not a review. Today in my travels I found not 1 but 2 destroyed Power land Snow blowers. They were used probably less than 2 hours a piece. the paint was not even worn off. I can say though.... They look like a waist of money with just the construction. The metal auger was very flimsy and the scraper bar looks like it was already worn out. Even the pulleys were not lined up. I would stay clear of there machines as it looks like a use and junk snow blower. The only thing that seemed to be well constructed was the auger itself.

Must be they believe they have enough power to shoot it over the operators head.

I followed your link to their site and love their "action" shot.



They have a 2 foot tall snow bank right there, yet the machine is shown blowing 1/2" of snow. That and the fact that the blowing snow and the blower seem to be photo shopped into there.

Hey wait. I just noticed both handle controls are UP too...

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

Take another look at the picture. There's a track from the left of the auger, or actually in the middle of the auger in the picture. Looks like something was added or changed to me. Looks like it was from a smaller blower and a bigger one then added.
