    Filled up on DEF at truck stop where the pic was taken. No worries. Had to break off an ice berg to get to the filler cap

    Drats.....think my snow blower took a dump. Thing worked fine last year when I put it away, drained the gas too. It's a 2 cycle engine, these things aren't complicated as long as the oil/gas mixture is correct and I always use the same measuring stick. Carb is clean, bowl, plug.....going to throw the sucker in the fire pit.

    I get aggravated easily....mostly when I come across cheap sh&t made to last as long as Keiko can refrain from posting pie pics. Craftsman isn't the brand they used to be.

  • Would you consider a Honda? I bought a 2 stage last year and love it. You will pay more $$ but, I think their worth it. It replaced a 25 yr. old MTD brand. Most new blowers sold today are crap. I wouldn't even consider an MTD today, they are not made like my old one was.

  • Cold weather and pull start engines require a solution.

    That solution is Ether Starting Spray. Works every time for me. Even if the plug is partially fouled.

    The Solution is GTFO of cold weather!!! SWFL sunny 85 at 04:15PM Pool temp is 88.. going to do some laps in the pool... Almost as good as shovelling snow for cardio.

    This is why I want to move to FL so bad. Snow sucks and I've had enough of it already...plus nothing beats being able to swim outside and enjoy the weather :)

    Amen to that. Plus my state is only second to Jersey for taxes so that's 2 reasons to run out asap. Unfortunately most my family, and the wifes family is here but the older we get the less patience we have with cold and family drama.

    Florida isn't for me though, too flat and too many who can't drive. lol It is however one of the cheapest warm weather solutions. I've been seriously considering outside the USA too, like Portugal, excellent place to retire to. Belize....put a tad too close to the crazies down there.

    Tony come visit SW Florida... Still flat... can't help that but the roads are great and people are very polite. I wasn't crazy about Florida until I scope this area out.

    Sannibel and Captiva are incredible.

    100+ miles south of Tampa towns like Venice Cape Coral and Naples along the coast are really nice.... Kinda like the islands but still in the US. Low Taxes etc.

    If you come visit, look me up and I will personally give you the tour.

    Just got back to NC this evening. After the frozen tundra of Iowa...Florida is a paradise. I'm on my way. Leave the door unlocked.

    Been down that way pal. Marco Island, Fort Meyers, have friends down that way and my daughter used to live outside Tampa in Clearwater beach.

    Florida reminds me of the Islands, nice around the beaches but go 6 blocks in and it's not so shiny. Parts of California are the same way, only way more expensive. I do dig northern Cali though. Only problem with that is if I dropped a quarter I'd have to kick it all the way to Steve's house in Arizona before picking it up.

    Arizona...too hot.
    New Mexico....still like old Mexico
    Texas....too hot
    Bama and Miss.....eh, I still have most my teeth so I may not fit in.

    The Carolina's maybe, weather is still nice and love that southern hospitality....and BBQ. I could just also find a nice small island in the south Pacific and play Tarzan and Jane with the wife for a decade.
