I picked up #2 tonight. Really hard to read the model on the tractor unit but I think it is 924020 but I can't be sure. 8 HP, looks to be a 24" auger again. Definitely is not in the condition the other one is. The bottom of the auger housing at the end of the scaperbar is broken on both sides, I'll have to weld that up. I may add a small piece of angle iron on the outside to reinforce it (looks like it may have been welded once before.
The engine turns over and does have compression, the auger rakes are loose on the auger shaft plus when you turn the rakes it does turn the impeller.
The guy said a neighbor set it out for the trashman so he took it home. He's happy because he has $20 for dragging it home and I'm happy because I'm sure at a minimum there are more than $20 in parts if the rest is not salvagable. Just looking it over quickly, I'm fairly sure it's savable.
This makes the 2d Ariens to come home in a couple of days. Guess that makes me an Ariens owner too.
Total of 7 blowers in the shed and the unfinished ones should be enough to keep me busy this summer.
