Question the Power Max joystick

So I went to Home Depot this weekend, and looked at the Ariens and the Toro snowblowers. They only had a 7HP 24" unit of the Toro on display. I couldn't tell what kind of engine it was.

The big question is that when I tried the joystick I could only get it to go "almost 180"... to the right it had no problem, to the left it was shy of shooting out straight across.

Was this just setup poorly or is that a limitation of the Toro?

You are right. Although I checked out the floor model again at Home Depot and it worked right. Also nice to see a Briggs on it.
