old Ariens

Hi all,

I was offered this on for $25. Anyone know the year? Not running but has really great sounding compression.

I would say late 60's to early 70's based on the bucket, engine decals, handles, etc. 1966-1972...

Couple things appear to be missing, but not the end of the world. ( carb cover to prevent icing, deflector for the chute)

I'd also check the auger transmission. Gear sets seem to be a bit pricey and scarce.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Thanks. I'm going to pass. I get a little ahead of myself when something is so cheap. Lol. I still have the 62 Simplicity to get going. Lol

Maybe not, it depends really on the auger transmission. Everything else is bolt on.

I know you already decided not to get it, but just in case anyone else might want to know in the future:

The features of the machine show that it is a 1969, 1970, 1971 or 1972 Ariens 10,000 series:

an excellent machine if everything is working.
I have been using an all-original unmodified 1971 Ariens for 6 years now, no problems with it at all..I expect it to last for several more decades.
