Album of Ariens 8524DLE

Dear Forum,

My buddy from NC brought my Craig's List purchase to my house today. It is nicer than I could have ever hoped. From all I can tell, it is a 2004 model, and has either never or only once been used. There are no scratches anywhere. It starts and runs......well, like new.

According to what you all told me it is:
8.5 Hp Tecumseh L head, 24 inches wide, D=differential drive, L=light and E=electric start.

I warmed it up and changed the oil to Mobil 1 5W-30. I am not a snob, I'd have used other oil but that's all that I had. The oil that was in it had to be old. The previous owner was pretty smart about not leaving old gas in the tank so I have no reservations about fuel line problems.

Tell me what you think! (hope that the link works)

Darn fine looking machine you got there. When they're that clean, you almost hate to use them.
