    That's fine I guess, but it also says for use in retail stores only.

    They do not sell the 3pt generator in-store, only mail order. I asked my store.

    So, I don't see how you can use the coupon????

    Ask the manager- when I bought my log splitter from them I asked to use a % off coupon even though it wasn't a store item and had to be ordered. The manager let me.
    Doesn't hurt to ask, he can either say yes or no.
    Apparently the managers have a wide discretion, last week I called about a particular blast cabinet I wanted, it turned out to be discontinued, but the manager readily offered 20% off a different one they did have, I didn't even ask.

    Yes but then that would make it a computer printout now wouldn't it.
    That's why I was just asking if anyone's actually done it before.

    My local HF has bent over backward to honor any coupon that I presented as long as it was not expired or a coupon used with a coupon to double dip. YMMV.

    Went in to the local HF before Christmas to buy my son a gift. I handed a 15% off coupon to the man behind the counter and he said keep it, I''l give you 20% off. What a deal.

    I've had one of these on backorder at the local store for a couple of months. I got the call that they are now in their warehouse and if I still want one I need to come in and order/pay for it. It will come into the store and I can pick it up there. Manager is honoring the 20% off coupon

    I'm going to resurrect this string. I was at my local HF this week to pick up some incidentals. They have a small section in the front where they sell off open-box items and had a PTO generator sitting there. Story was that a fellow bought it for power back-up for his house, then the house burned down (True-True-Unrelated). He returned the generator unused to HF. They had it marked down to $999 from the $1299 listed in the catalog (and obviously no freight charge). I asked the manager to knock off another $100 bucks and he did. It's now sitting in the back of my pickup waiting for the weekend to give it a try. I'll give you all a review in a few weeks. My wife seems to think she now has an $800 credit to even things up.

    The Harbor PTO Generator works great. I now have electricity whenever i want it on the tree farm without having to maintain a small engine. Easy to move on the three point. I'm in it, including extended warranty, for $1063.28 (see my last post for the deal I got). The gear box for the generator sits pretty close to the tractor so the PTO shaft (comes included) is quite short. It takes a little jockeying to get it connected, since when leveled with the PTO there isn't enough clearance to get the female end of the shaft over the spline. Fortunately by putting it at full lift there is enough clearance. A bigger tractor with longer rocker arms would not have that problem. To use a smaller tractor one may have to cut the shaft down a little. It's a real solid unit. It's easy to adjust the the throttle since it has a cycle readout. It doesn't quite require the RPMs to produce 60 cycles that my tachometer rates as 540 out.. That is probably a good thing since less fuel and less wear and tear on the tractor. I have attached some photos.

    From your pics, it appears there are multiple mounting holes to choose from, in the frame, for the generator to mount to. I wonder if it can be slid back to make your shaft space a bit more generous???

    That generator looks exactly like the one I bought with "Torq" decals on it. They must be from the same manufacturer.
