Picked up a 1032 at the scrapyard

Hi, first post here.

I was at the local recycling-station yesterday, and saw a snowblower in what appeared to be a well used, but OK condition. The outlet and the bucket had some signs of repairs with a welder.

I asked if I could take it with me, and I could.
It looked well maintained with still light brown oil, full fuel tank, new spark plug. I have not yet tried to start it. It is missing the belt that drives the snowblower.

The model/serialnumber is 924073 - 017337
What year could that be?

The tecumseh label says DOM 02338, wich is December in 2003. It looks alot older though. Maybe the engine was replaced once?

Hi gjelsvik
Welcome to the forum. I believe your series was from 1983 or thereabouts. Motor was probably a replacement for a 10 hp that grenaded...a common problem for the 10 hp Tecumseh engine usually caused by low oil and overspeeding. You got quite a find for your dump picking. Well worth putting some time into in the off season. Parts are still available and a wealth of help on this forum when and if you need it . Good luck. MH

Welcome! And that's a great find! Apparently the 32" buckets are rather rare. Get it fixed up, and it could serve you for a long time.

If you haven't been there already, here you may be able to download manuals for your machine. Potentially the owner's manual, parts manual, and service manual, if you're lucky. They're great resources to have available:

Ariens Order Owners Manuals

Got any pictures?

Seems like that tall chute was added on - leading me to believe that the blower was owned by a tinkerer. If that is true, then there must be more wrong with it than meets the eye, and I would guess that you may have a handfull of work ahead of you.

With that in mind...I'll offer you a $50 profit on your find - sight unseen ! Where do you live ? Must be within 200 miles of Albany NY, or near Northern NJ, or Phillie - those are the places I frequent.
