    What happened to wise sales? I bought a good deal of snow blowers and generators from them online over the years. Their website has been "under maintenance" for the last 6 months or so. I believe they also used to be a sponsor on the site too

    That's a great question! I even emailed them about it and never got a response.

    They took a deposit from us last fall for a toro 721 snowblower, and after about two months of no blower, we had to get them to issue a refund. They did have the best prices on blowers.

    Just did a Google search and it looks like they have ripped off a bunch of people for product that was paid for but not shipped.

    There has to be more to it. I'm sure they process hundreds of orders a day. I'm sure it had something to do with their suppliers not having the product ready and then trickled down to them. Either way it doesn't sound like a reason to shut down completely. Every time I've ordered from them it got to my home within days with zero issues.

    Heard that it wa s a family business and the family split (divorce?). They closed up shop I'm pretty sure.

    Wow, that's too bad. I had a great experience every time I ordered snow blowers from them...3 separate times I believe. All good things come to an end.
     
  9. I agree, that is too bad. I ordered a couple of backpack blowers years ago and always had good fast shipping response.
