Their SnowBlower is Crap

I bought it three-four years ago and it is nothing but trouble.The original drive pulley installed was the wrong one and had to be replaced.The carburetor has been nothing but trouble.It is supposed to be an "industrial" model. The kicker was the blizzard today and the miserable thing would run for maybe 8 minutes and had to be restarted some six times to finish up. If it was criminal to manufacture a lousy product their whole management,sales, and QC teams would be in prison for life.

User's recommendation: Stay away from all MTD products and buy a HONDA like I should have done in the first place.

Yardman mower

While not just bought last week new, my yardman 550e front wheel drive with 21" cut is only 9 month old. In that time frame I have had to take my mower in for "junk" in my carburetor (3) three times. And who thought front wheel drive was a good idea? I have six inches of unusable mower that I can't use in corners or around certain plants and bushes in my yard. When my Honda with rear wheel drive I might add died I went the saving money route. That won't happen again. And now I have to enter at least a hundred words? why? Should I choose which emoticon best describes my feelings over this on top of my yardman issues? and since I'm raring to go ,why does yardman not have a place for consumers to vent/resolve issues?

New Yardman snowblower, 21" wide, 4-cycle 123cc engine

I recently purchased a new 21" wide snow blower (from a local Home Depot store) that has a 4-cycle, 123cc OHV horizontal shaft engine. It is a "Yardman" brand snowblower, but not sure what the brand of the engine is. I think the engine is a Tucemseh motor. The snowblower has performed well so far, but have a problem checking the oil. The manual says the oil capacity is 20 oz. and that is what I put in it after I did an oil change yesterday. The problem is the engine has a short plastic "screw-in" dipstick that is angled about 45 degrees in the engine block and I can't see oil on the dipstick when I check the oil. I have tried screwing the dipstick in all the way and not screwing it in at all. If it is screwed in all the way, there is a very small amount of oil at the very tip of the dipstick. If I don't screw it in and just have it sitting at the edge of the oil inlet there is no oil on the dipstick. Every time I check the oil, the snowblower is sitting in the normal upright position on a flat surface like the manual says. The dipstick looks nothing like the picture in the manual for one that screws in to the engine block. The "L" is at the very bottom of the diptick and the "H" is at the top of it. Is the oil capacity to be more than 20 oz? Or is the dipstick in the engine the wrong one? I will want to check the oil from time to time and need to know what is going on here.
