Ariens model 924024 ?'s

I have an Ariens model 924024, tractor serial # 013312 Scoop # 15423

Does anyone know how old it is? I bought it in 2000. I went through it to the tune of $700.00 3 years ago. We do walkways at a condo complex where we plow. I keep this one as # 3 to back up our newer machines in case 1 goes down. I am thinking of selling it because it just sits and does not get used. I can't seem to put it up for sale because the thing is a tank, it scrapes so good and will go through anything.

When we first started doing these walkways back in the mid 80's I would always look in the want adds for old 60's & 70's Ariens....they used to do the job better than any of the new snowblowers back then. Well those days are long gone and so are all the older Ariens. I am finding it hard to put this machine up for sale because it links me back to the good old days when we first started and old Ariens are all we would use. It works great still but I think it is time to sell it before I can't get any thing for it.

So if anyone knows the year of manufacture
and a ballpark figure of what I should ask for it it would be greatly appreciated......thanks

I will post some pics if I can figure how to do it from my phone

I have same model- I think I came to conclusion it is a 1978. Scot may chime in to verify. Value would vary a lot on condition, ect. At this time and in good condition.. I'm thinking $225-$275(maybe 300 if excellent). I'm not good on putting price on something but that would be my margin if were looking at one to buy that old.

You are probably right on both calls. A shame to let such a great machine go for so little!!

Looks to have a 32" bucket, that makes it a slightly harder to find model. Looks like you have a great machine there. FWIW if it were mine I'd keep it.

The last year those handlebars were made was 1979. That scoop style I believe was last used in 1978 so I would say it is from around 1975 - 1978.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I agree with Hjames.. You'd have to 'pry' it out of my hands. awesome machines. I guess if no room.. but I think you'll regret down the road. Try to figure a way to keep- the 32" is getting harder to find anymore for sale.

However, I'm sure someone in this forum would love to have it.

Looks very nice, but can those pictures get any smaller?
