Im trying to help a buddy of mine figure out his snowblower on his sears. Tried to download the manual, but that worked as well as his snowblower does at the moment. Not at all. Haha Then i tried a second time and still no go. Being a newbie on here now i will be looking elsewhere for today but may be back tomorrow to try again.

Which manual is it? You may have to be above 10 posts to get it.

Interesting, I've had similar results. I've tried all weekend to download the T70 Panzer parts manual and it has each time told me I'm downloading too fast and must wait ~ 55 to 58 seconds before downloading again? (even on a first attempt). so, I'd wait a day and try again a couple times...Maybe I'm too new here as well. Not a biggy to me, I still love the site even if I don't ever get the T70 parts manual. I'm pretty sure I have a T75, but I thought the 70 would be similar enough to help me out.

We are having issues with the manuals section of the site. Some of it is user's computer setup but some of it is the software itself that runs the manuals section. We are working on new site software and it will be ready here in a couple weeks.

There are a couple of things you can check when trying to download and that is to make sure the browser is set to ask where to save downloads everytime so you know where it is saving to. Always save the file, don't open if a pop up box comes up.

In the meantime if those don't work if you post in the looking for manuals thread, I believe it is a sticky and post that you are having issues someone should be able to help out.

Glad things are working out. I'll try downloading that manual. And Thanks for becoming a supporter.


Don't know what the problem is. It downloaded fine for me. Just out of curiosity, do you have a windows computer or Mac? What internet connection are you on?

The pages of code is one of the issues. It happens when your browser tries to open it directly, somehow the browser is adding an hml extension to the file.

If you save it then remove the hml extension, then open with your reader, all is well.

On my computer, this was caused by a setting in chrome where it was set to open downloaders in browser window. I did away with that, and it started working right.

I think you all are doing a great job with the manuals I am very happy with the Amigo info we have found if anyone has any more history or info on Amigos that would be great as my daughter wants as much history as she can find for the local Steam and Tractor show in August. Good job :) mj
