I agree with Tom also.
The thing about Sears is that they have to provide service after the sale. At least 10 years out,unless the law has changed. They have many makes in the Houston stores.
You may be lucky to get 5 years. No mater where you buy it, Most all is Plastic Crap.
But it is nice to know you CAN get parts and DIY, 10 or 20 years down the road.
