Q:Is here an extended warranty available?

Answer This Question

A:  Yeah you can get one. You should. I got lucky, mine about broke my arm the first day so it went back the next. So buy a warranty especially if the problems don't pop up like mine did.

        Dangerous throttle issue, and recoil
        This auger about broke my arm. The throttle trigger seemed to have gotten stuck and it wouldn't let off, I had to hit the switch to kill it. The lighter weight seemed nice but it seems its missing some things to make it better. My older Thunderbay wouldn't try to rip my arm off if it hit a rock like this one would. Many issues. DON'T BUY! Already returned mine the next day! Buy the thunderbay if its available or something not made cheap on the throttle and can hit a rock without trying to throw yourself.

          This auger ran great! Plenty of power for the projects I needed to do but I only got to use it one day and the pull starter broke! I took it apart to see what was wrong with it and the plastic center sheared right off. I looked on line to by the pull starter assembly to replace the broken one and they were out of stock so I returned the auger. It ran great while I could start it but was useless after the assembly broke.
