The Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 XP Snow Thrower arrived here at May Dreams Gardens late this morning.
It came on a big truck with a lift gate, sitting in a big red box on top of a wooden pallet. The driver carefully moved it on to the truck gate, lowered it on to the ground and set it in place in the garage.
Well, almost ready. First I had to unbox it and assemble it.
Step one, was to remove the staples from the top, fold down the flaps and remove the top.
Step two, I cut down the sides of the box to reveal the snow thrower. From there it was a matter of following the instructions to basically attach the chute to the thrower, which involved a rod, a couple of bolts, a cotter pin, some other kind a pin and some patience to make sure the holes were all lined up.
All that took me approximately 30 minutes, but I was taking my time and it took me a few minutes to get it lined up just so. I spent another 30 minutes cutting up all the cardboard to recycle.
Now I'm ready for the first big snow.
I can hardly wait!
