No Noma branded forum? What's wrong with them? I love mine.
Isn't Noma popular enough to have a forum for them?
Is there negativity about their blowers? What's wrong with them? That we shouldn't consider buying a used one?
I have a 5hp Noma, 24" width, 12" impeller rather than the usual 9" impeller on the same hp machines, I've seen 8hp with 9" impeller. It has a very high front, (scoop, housing) about 20" rather than the lower 16" or less, so large housing.
It's a good size machine, has some weight to it. Large knobby tires, easy to use, nice controls and cable setup, a slightly heavier plastic chute with a welded metal turning ring at the bottom with metal gearing. A good size gearbox. The belts are easy to change and of course a Tecumseh engine.
It's been a solid trouble free machine. I think they are well built. Unfortunately, they are not made anymore. Whoops. I believe they were consumed by Murray which was consumed into B&S.
