    Oh, FYI, I bought the 22 Ariens at Home Depot a few days ago. It's $1199, but I gave them a 25% Harbor Frieght coupon which dropped it down to 899, comes with cradels and hydro oil, ready to go. ;)

    Milky is indicative of water in the fluid. It should be changed if that happens.

    Thanks for the tip, I will keep my nut tight, I can see how water could trickle in if it is left in the rain and that nut isn't tight...

    That's an awesome deal. I got a Harbor Freight catalog the other day. I've got to check if the coupon is in there. That Ariens looked good at HD. The cradles were not the usual Chinese soft steel kind. Overall I think that may be a better buy than the Huskee 22 ton.

    $100 dollar difference if you have the coupon and they honor it. You certainly did your homework. Me being new to this took the advice of the many guys on here that have the Huskee, I put it together last night and felt that I now have a quality product well worth what I spent. The I-beam is solid....enjoy it, I know I will......

    Thanks bud, after a few little kinks, this beast is running just fine, the I-beam is a monster and its going through everything that I am giving it, so I can't be any happier. I would be just another that would highly recommend this unit. Usually I say you get what you pay for, but I'm actually thinking that this is a better deal than that....

    Buy a cover if its going to live outdoors.It will keep the water out. Just make sure to let it cool down after use so the cover doesn't melt.
