A few die hards like them
they are very unsafe twin handles by the belts

come with useless tires
short chute
handlebars crack
big impeller gap
don't blow snow for chit until the above has been fixed
I've had a few wont even take them for free now
but they have thick steel lol

merry xmas

They are a great blower, solidly built, easy to repair, and just work great. I have 2 of the 10000 series, along with many others. And by the way, I do recommend the X-Trac tires on any blower, regardless of age or model, as mine have. Oh, and I never had a cracked handle bar, and the chutes and impeller work just fine. I repowered one with a B&S, and the other with a Predator 212. While the B&S Snow model is fine, the Predator is the better performing engine, hands down.

Here's one with the 19" tall chute (some call it the medium chute), 3" crank pulley, a 1980s 7hp engine, and an impeller kit. With better tires and in the right hands, they are extremely maneuverable when equipped with the differential. It was my first snowblower.


I've since moved on to a Bolens 824 and a customized Ariens 924 series snowblower but I still have the other one (it was repurposed last year as a lawnmower with the lawnmower attachment).

@rwh,

You have to understand, that a solid blower, regardless of any brand, built back in the 60's and early 70's is not going to have all the safety features and stuff like these new ones have. And I don't care what blower is made, New or old, you will always have people who don't know how to operate them, and those people will continue to get hurt.

Those 10000 series will be running another 50 years, that says it all .....
