Thinking of selling my old 924 blower

I am going to list and sell my old 924016 with 924012 scoop. At 32" this thing is just too big for my needs. I am unsure where to even start on an asking price. It runs great now with a new carb put on last weekend. I put a lot of time into getting this machine to work properly. It's not pretty but I've seen way worse shape than this - and it works perfectly!

Where to start on a price? I will post for sale in the proper forum once I have an idea.

Replaced parts.
* Carburetor
* Fuel line
* Fuel shutoff
* Spark plug.
* Entire ignition - coil, points, condenser
* Blower impeller bearing
* Wheel bearings
* Drive clutch bearings
* Muffler
* Axle
* All fluids
* Electric starter
* Rubber impeller paddles

look for a smaller auger assembly and swap them out? That's what I did with the Searsasaurus, swapped a 32" auger assembly for a 26" and made it a whole lot more manageable and usable for me.

Yeah, that would be an option. I forgot to mention that I have a 5/24 Ariens from ~1978 that is a super little blower and I've used it 98% of the time for the past 15 years.

Thats a nice robust machine for Minnesota! shouldn't have a problem finding a buyer.. in November!
You could try listing it now, but you likely wont find a buyer in the summer..95% of potential buyers aren't even looking now.


I would list it for $300 to start, in October or November.

You should be be able to easily get $250 to $300 for it..

I second swapping out the bucket to 24 inch.....You'll need a junk ST 824 for axles ( 32 inch ones stick out to far) and I would get a 24 inch twin stick from the 70's to use a as donor for the bucket....here is a ST 12 36 I swapped out for a 24 bucket

A swap to a smaller bucket is certainly doable but the 24" Ariens 932000 series I have does a really great job and I doubt I'd replace it with another 24" even with the larger engine.

Yeah, I hear ya Scot on selling in Nov. vs now and agree that spring is not a good time by any measure to try and sell any snowblower. I will likely wait until the snow flies again and then list it somewhere for sale.

cranman, those tires look like they would be way better than the turf tires on my 32". These are useless in the snow. With the diff unlocked it won't even climb up the sloped curb at the end of the driveway by itself. I had always intended on putting tire chains on it but since I just never needed to use the machine it was not a priority.
