I got my Ace Hardware 21" Yard Machines snow blower out today. I put it away with 93 octane gas and marine stabil in it. Started on second pull and idled with full choke for 30 seconds until I tried to turn the choke off, then it died. Restarted, slowly turned choke off and it purred like a kitten, at full fixed throttle. It kinda smoked for the first minute or so but I think that was from the choke being on and having to ween it off the choke. Not to mention it has been sitting since March with no other winterization steps taken. I am ready for the harsh winter that everyone keeps fear mongering about.
