First Engine Swap of the Season

Did a Swap on a 10000 series Today. Came out Good. Also a few pics of this Years Stable. I've Sold 5 Machines in the last 2 weeks, Not Bad For August!

I think it is safe to say we now know who to blame for global warming and the lack of snow the last couple years.

Quite the collection you have going there.

Engine Swap 2

Got a Rototiller in w/a Bad Gearbox. Decided to use the Engine on a 10M6D Tractor Unit. Auger is a 7-10M with Extended Chute. This was a Very Easy Swap, I only had to move the Auger Crank out an inch or 2. Engine is a Tecumseh OHV Engine. You have to sometimes get creative with the Crank if you use the Honda Clones. I'll do an Impeller Seal on it as well.
We didn't really get much Snow Here until February hit, but Feb. was a Good
Month for Me. Hope We get it Early and Often This Year!

Jackmels does that have the extended chute???? Have you tried any of your long chute converts on your older Ariens out to give an update to anyone thinking of trying that as an option??? Very cool!

Winter started late all around the Midwest and northeast then it hit hard like you said in February and march 2013....

Check farmers outlook map.....




Will wait until the end of October to see if Siberia had a fast snow cover then we will know of rough winter ahead or not!!!!!

Last Photo has an Extended Chute. They Work Well; Tall ST824 Chutes can be a direct bolt-on. Sometimes I need to get Creative with the Welder to make them fit. I'm now experimenting with impeller seals.

Sold 2 ST824s this weekend so far, and scored an ST824 w/blown auger(Now functioning, and saleable). This Looks to be a Good Season!
