Checking out a used Ariens

I'm gonna check out a used 927 LE tonight. I'm trying to upgrade to a more powerful machine, right now I have a 179cc 24" Craftsman.

Looks like this model has the triggers for releasing the wheels for easier turning... and it is most likely a Tecumseh, from my googling, a 9HP = 318cc in that style engine.

I don't know the year or anything, but I am interesting in a completely US made snowblower, which this one would be.

Any random bits of advice? I'll post pics if I pick it up.

After a little research & pics the 927 le is a real nice machine. I love the trigger levers for turning . My deluxe 28 has the trigger too. Make sure to check the oil, forward/reverse, auger..ect you can tell by looking at it if its been cared for. Good luck and I hope you get it.

I hope you don't pay more than $600 for that rig. I traded my 927 LE last October and got $550 for it and the dealer, Suburban Lawn in Ham Lake, said he would sell it $650. Mine was a good machine, I just wanted something a little different was all.

Yep it was. I decided I really want a remote deflector (something my Craftsman doesnt have now), so I never went to look at it.

Way to think ahead. That was the ONLY reason I traded mine in. Nothing worse then getting a shiet load of snow to the face in swirling winds as you try to reach over the machine to tilt down the chute!!
