I don't know if they will assemble. But it's doesn't need much assembly.The only thing that needs assembly is the chute and that's pretty simple, which can be done easily at home. Hope it helps.

Better than Shoveling!
After three days of shoveling our 36 inches and it hurting to just breathe, my wife bought me this blower. It was easy to work and my 12 year old daughter wanted to take it away from me and finish the job. Okay! With very little effort, we were clear. Easy to use and a dream to have. Definitely a great product!

Wish I had bought one 10 years sooner, great product for the price.
We have determined that a snow blower does a better job of clearing the yard than plowing. Here in Down East Maine we have had record snow falls this year. We have snow in some places over 6' deep. We were simply running out of room to plow the snow. I have used this snow blower to reclaim much of our yard. We can now turn around again. Seems it takes about the same amount of time to Snow Blow as it does to plow, but with better results. In truthfulness, I have used this for old snow falls, with much crusty snow and ice mix. It has done a great job. My only complaints to the manufacturer. Set up the snow chute turning worm reverse of what you have now, as it turns opposite of driving a car and therefore takes a second to remember the direction to get it right. Also, the chute should be taller, so as to get up and over large drifts, and one more tooth on each side, and it could be aimed slightly back and oftentimes more downwind. It seems to have great power but sometimes on long throws, wish it could be revved a tad more. Last complaint, reverse is too slow. We end up putting it in neutral and pulling it back by hand. We calculate it as 1/2 paid for in plowing savings in less than one months use. For the price, I can not complain too much. A great value for money spent.

It is more powerful than my last Yard Machine (which I passed along to my son). Should last many years. My old one was 15 yrs old and ran perfectly.

I thought the blower would come assembled as it never specified when bought online. Was missing 2 bolts, nuts and washers needed to secure the handle which I bought at Lowes. Not too sure how the shear bolts will hold up as they are only held in place by pins,not nuts. Have not used it yet to blow snow, but, started right up and sounded OK. We will see.
