    I couldn't wait when I got mine I went strait to the gates I had built for my 4-wheelers to weld the chain on and tack weld the nuts so they couldn't be wrenched off. My 350 warrior was stolen because they unbolted the heel guard that the chain went thru...anyway I put my new 140 on the back of the grizzly and drove it around to the gates, ran an extension cord and had a ball. I kept thinking what the neighbors were saying about it...Bad news is the last ice and snow collapsed the shed so I am tearing the whole thing down now.. anyways Have Fun I love mine hope for a 220 someday and a plasma and ............
