Im reserving my comments about it at the momentI agree! I would not even bother with my machined extension project.
I'm wondering what mindset he's in this morning about the generac. Is it a keeper?
I actually had to reach out to the executives at generac. Had talked to the head manager at DR power.
basically all of them have treated me like human trash. But im told im not human trash and when i get a call back it will be better.
They got me my replacement parts. Only because executive contacts reached their executives who forwarded it to the head of DR Power. In fact TSC executives have got the ball rolling on me not being left holding the bag. Even though they offered me a full return if i take it back to the store. I dont want to return it because it is an amazing machine.... On paper. It does have some pretty epic torque. not as much as the white with garden tractor tires. But it also has little 4.8 pizza cutters in comparison to tractor tires.
This is why Tractor Supply is amazing. I wasted about all of my day dealing with their nonsense.
I called them at 8am this morning to find out i was being mocked in the customer service office as the "snowblower guy".
So none of you can claim to be the snowblower guy, until you are being mocked by a company for being the snowblower guy. lol
good catch zavie that yellow plug is oil level don't remove or he will get a mess, the dip stick level is over that level but i wonder what shows on the other side? is there a extension drain with a flat and 10mm headed drain plug? since toro also uses loncin motors i looked at mine and from the toro parts list ,the extension and plug kit is sold if the op wants to put one in latter
DRAIN PLUG KIT
i'ts not a pipe thread like we are all used to .it's a straight 12 mm metric so we can't do a rubgoldberg homemade extension
man do i hear you my toro doesn't have anything but fine mesh in the neck "yes it's cut out now" not some type of gas gauge but it's still a pita to fill with these new gas can fillers CA pushed down our necks ,that plus old age and a bad back forces me to use a pump to fill up my machines , so i use one of these Battery Operated Liquid Transfer Pump still have a little mess but not as much as i do using a 5 gallon can
I had to use a pump to drain the oil out today. A hand pump. Apparently dr power sells one for $50 but i just used a $10 harbor freight one. Pumped it out and then filled it back up.
Going to have to get those. Midwest Cans should have a class action over those cans. they are more dangerous than any can i've ever used in my life. Will definitely be picking up new spouts before snow mo season.Don't keep using those dangerous "safety spouts". TSC
and other stores sell EZ-Pour spout replacement kits that work with Midwest and Blitz gas cans.
