Maybe it is legit and someone gets a screaming good deal on it, but to say that "it is only a few years old and that it just came out of warranty" is a plain huge lie to me as it could be 20-25 years old....
Now truly getting it for $100 I wouldn't mind about the lies......

I have not done anything yet with the 2 Honda HS621 from that trip, but here is how the Yamaha YS828 (from Michigan) is starting to look like...

Clearly he's off his rocker about it being a few years old, but is possible he bought it used from a place that offered some type of warranty. As you know, parts alone would make it well worth $100.

Amazing what blasting, powder coating and some new hardware can do. What a transformation, looking great. Pretty cool that it spent a lot of its life about 45 min. south of me and she's starting to look like a million bucks.

I wonder if you'll be tempted to keep it.

Probably not this one. But I am thinking of eventually do a full restoration to a YS828T and might be the keeper (although I think for the driveway I have I only need a 22-24" blower).
Thinking of building an "HS822T" that will look like a baby Canadian HS1336 (with partially open augers).
Ideas, ideas, ideas.......... can't stop thinking

The HS822T sounds good.

The CL Ad has been flagged for removal (I didn't flag it, but whoever did I think is possibly scam related).

I guess as they say if it sounds too good to be true..... It had too many red flags.

I actually ended up using the front section of the "brought from Michigan" with a tracks tractor that I have from another snowblower.

How does it look...?
