Scraper part is overpriced

I was not aware when I bought this that it wore out scraper bars so fast, here in canada they are over $50, I find this unacceptable. I tried ordering one fro home depot dec 15/19 & an empty box arrived at my door, later I went to HD to order another one & in 10 days it still hasn't come. Ego needs to address this, it's not fair. I did order some neoprene slides which I will install once the new plastic ripoff scraper comes I would not recommend this blower until they resolve these issues

I've seen a lot of people say their scrapers are lasting a long time but I have also seen your complaint from others. Who knows....
Anyway, Canadian prices do seem high compared to US prices and our old friend Walt Duchak has complained about Canadian pricing for years. 
The shipping comments are definitely on HD and need to be handled with them. Note that anything you buy from HD online can be handled at a stick and brick store. You say in 10 days it hasn't come. Do you have tracking information? If so, what does tracking info indicate?
Hope you receive your new scraper bar soon.

Could be weather related delays. We here in the Pacific NW have had some deliveries delayed due to inclement weather.

Also has been snowing almost every day since mid December, in desperation inmid dec., I took blade off & re-drilled the bar to sit lower, this helped but isn't as good as original
