Newbie buyer looking for advice

I've been reading through some of the forums here and you seem to be pretty helpful and knowledgeable. I'm in need of a snowblower and found this
https://madison.craigslist.org/grd/d...818124041.html
Would like to know if this is a good machine, what I should look for if I were to go look at it, and what should I expect to pay for it. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

I'd say it's had a bit more use than the poster is suggesting. That and it looks like it was stored outdoors. It's not pretty but they are a well built machine and the parts are still available. I'd be trying to talk him down to 200 if the engine runs smoothly.
It may have the original skids but what does that mean ?? I'd be much happier if it had all the original paint instead of all the areas where it's missing and rusted.

Great machine, reasonable price if no issues...I get $350 to $400 for that machine fully serviced, painted if rough, new belts, skids, scraper and transmission serviced and adjusted. If no glaring issues on that machine $200 to $250 is OK
