Probably should not have been to quick to scrap them. If given a few weeks I am sure someone would have came by to save them or at least some parts.

Sometimes circumstances dictate we have to do some culling of the herd. It was generous of Arienskids to offer those machines....and if it hadn't been such a long drive from SE Mass to Connecticut...I would have taken them.....even though I've got a half dozen 10000 series parts machines already. I really hate to junk usable parts, but in an urban neighborhood, or living with a spouse or parents...sometimes you have to let them go......The good new is there is no shortage of 10000 series parts.

I totally agree with you. You know as well as I do. I go to great lengths to save a machine and or parts from them if I can.

I was just a little disappointed to see that the time they were posted to the time they got scraped was very short. Espesially when offers were on the table.

I have parts for 30+ of these. So I know how they can stack up.

I hear your pain(s)!!! Down here in the Philadelphia suburbs I had to "give" several machines away this winter. I needed to clean out the shed and a lucky young man was the first to show up! I still have a few but times change! The last snow here a week ago was very wet,
maybe 10". My old 10,000 series 6 hp was the winner. I don't know the equations but something about width and horse power is very important. My 16 hp Gravely tractor with 38" blower just would not do it. If it had been 24'' of dry snow, that is a different story! Sure glad I kept that old 6 hp!!

well i can assure you guys all the machines i scrapped were strictly parts machines. the way i see it, i got 75 bucks for some old worn out snowblowers i got from the dump and trade in deals. and i stripped a lot of the smalls before scrapping. unfortunately, the hoard was getting a bit to crazy and sometimes you just have to let go of the stuff, i dont want our property looking like a junkyard. not much more i can say. besides, the rarest blower in that lot was the bolens artic and i see those pop up at least 5 times a season.
