Early Ariens Sno-Thro's & Ratchet Drive system

Made a video discussing some of the features on my 1963 Ariens "Gard-N-Yard" 10ML60D. this machine features the "ratchet drive" system which still works fantastic. Check it out.

I had to copy the link and open it in YT.
It hangs in places.
The blower in the background in the opening scene has the 'teardrop' bucket.
See how it looks like a tear drop?

Great video Nick.
I had never heard of this system, but wish they had continued to develop it as on option.
Love both of your machines, they look to be in great original condition, besides the Predator upgrade.

Keep smiling, it makes people wonder what you're up to!
