Talk about being CHEAP!!!

I was just looking at the new snowblowers offered by Sears at their website. Briggs & Stratton muscled their way into Sears and Sears is now selling snowblowers made by Briggs & Stratton. Just reading about the features and they are now using PLASTIC skid shoes. Bennifits are no more scratches in your driveway. If we have another winter her in N.H. like we had last year(which, the Old Farmers Almanac is predicting), you will need to replace those shoes at least twice this winter where the steel shoes normally last 1-2 winters. Last winter, we were clearing snow 2-3 times per week from Jan.10 to March 30. Those plastic shoes would have to be replaced 4 time last winter.
Leave it to B&S to cheapen things up!!

Well there ya go Indy...you'll make a mint if you figure out an adapter to use the old steel shoes. Then you can pay someone to clean off yer own white fluffy stuff....what is "snow" by the way? heh heh

Seriously, everything gets cheaper made, esp for consumer products.
