received a mtd snowblower for xmas a couple years ago, last winter the first snowfall it ran about 2 minutes and a gear in the auger housing broke, i called the home office and was told to get in touch with a local small engine repair business, well they said, do you have the bill of sale, i said no, then they asked if i could get it from the people that bought it as a gift. i said no they moved and had not kept it, then it turns out they wanted to look at it and yes i would have to pay them to look at it, THIS IS DISGUSTING !!! IT STINKS !!!
