Jari-Jaw II dual front auger, anyone with info, parts sources ??

I'm almost (trying to arrange pick-up) the proud owner of an old, really old Jari-Jaw II snow blower.

Anyone with parts diagrams, manuals or parts sources
Looks pretty much like this:

I just took it for granted they were out of business long ago. I found the companies e mail address and sent them a request for info.

Thanks for the "kick"

If anyone has anything on hand I'd still appreciate seeing what you have.

Let me know if you get anywhere with them. Would love to know if they made snowblowers at one time.

That's for sure. Only good thing is if I'm going to collect and tinker it's cheaper doing it with riding mowers and blowers than with cars.

Hate to think what I've dumped into my 850 turbo and RX-7 chevy

"Let me know if you get anywhere with them. Would love to know if they made snow blowers at one time. "

Will do. I'm pretty sure it's the same company as I did come across a picture of a "Jari" sickle bar mower of about the same vintage as the blower and I doubt there could be two Jari manufacturing companies. BUT . . . Ya never know. No reply yet

Jari did make them back in the 60's but sold them. So, the search continues.

Would love to find someone with a manual.

"The Jari Jaw II was sold to Bondus Tool Company in 1970. If information is available they would be the ones to contact."


Update:
Well the search might be short lived. Can't find a "Bondus" but there is a Bondhus Tool Company but it looks like all they do is import Chinese stuff.

Parts

Depending on what you need, many companies used alot of the same parts in blowers. If it's a bushing or bearing type thing, there are alot of vendors on that. Specific/special parts can be harder but not impossible.
Keep an eye out on places like Ebay, many times I've found parts there too.

I agree that you should never underestimate what can be repaired with generic parts.

The brand name lives at Jari USA. They have been keeping the sickle bar mower line alive. I don't know if the offer any snow blower support.

Please report back.

They no longer support the snowblowers

That quote above was the response I received from the present Jari company. They split snowblowers off 44 years ago

As for Bondus Tool Company I tried to find them but what I found seems to be an importer of a lot of China tools and not a manufacturer of any snowblowers.


"The Jari Jaw II was sold to Bondus Tool Company in 1970. If information is available they would be the ones to contact."

I'm still trying to get my hands on it as the person who owns it just doesn't return calls.
