I think Burned got one for that price too and his is missing the tail gate too. Its a shame there's no tail gate. They are selling for as high as $650.
That's been the story of my life pretty much every weekend in January. Still have more to do, and yet another wet weekend this weekend.
I've had that same problem with a number of online vendors over the years. Extremely frustrating when you need a machine back in action quickly.Cruddy weather and waiting for parts that were “In Stock”... well until I completed the order. Then it was 2 weeks out. Then an update email. They are expecting them now February 12th! Not happy with Jacks Small Engines.
I will say, that little storm hit at the worst possible time. Even after our delay the roads were terrible. Fortunately I have a quiet 6 mile commute. I guess the interstates were bad too, 3 hours from the NH line to Boston.School was canceled and we only got 1/4” of ice.

I thought those machines have power steering. I guess you just want to use a finger or two to steer them.It’s crazy what a difference a few miles make, Steve. Only an inch this morning of sleet/snow .. got it with the blower, but it left a lot behind as it wanted to climb on top. Hoping for it to melt, but no luck. Went out tonight and scrapped up the rest. It would have been a good test for the broom, but still waiting on parts.
I though the Old Farmers Almanac predicted a snowy winter, but it’s been a bust so far.
I gotta admit, I never thought much about a spinner for the steering wheel, but after the X came with one and I realized what I’d been missing I bought one for the 455.. sometimes I’m not too smart...lol
