    So I was using my Ariens snowblower and I thought I was hitting something solid with my foot and I was. It was the handle that controls the chute. I used a chain to hold it up as I just had another 5-10 minutes to do.
    I was doing the sidewalk and the machine kept puttering and dying because it had water in the carb. Pressing the button underneath didnt help so I decided to give up and come back later with a different one.
    I get to the truck after pushing it to the truck and the rope breaks. I had to call my brother to push it into the truck. Luckily it was a somewhat hill there as it sucks to push it in.

    The good news was that my other snowblower didnt break for the remainder of the storm.

    Sounds like it is time to put it into the garage to thaw and then give it a good once over so you don't find anymore issues while you are out using it. :D

    Get a shovel - $9.99 a WalMart. That'll do the trick
