Talking Old Ariens Find ?

Ad says its an ariens snowblower with a Tecumseh engine .Any idea what year this could be? Their asking 60.00 Might be a good fixer up for my daughters house. Not sure if it runs but I would pull the plug see if it turns over with a little oil down the cyl head.

There will be a seperate model number for the "tractor" and for the blower. Those two numbers are easily decoded.

Look here - - > http://1stclass.mylargescale.com/scottychaos/Ariens/index.html

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Thumbs up

Well I just bought it for $50.00 pick it up this weekend.lol
older gentleman ( well older than me & I'm in my 50's ) say before I use it I should get it serviced......ya think? I plan on a complete tear down of it and to restore it as new. New paint and stickers!!
I have a couple of spray guns, compressor ect. I wonder if my automotive
paint store can match Ariens orange paint?
I think the bucket is a 20 inch.

The front blower should be a 20" manufactured in 1975 as shown on page 6 of the above link.

Don't forget to check out the "Trac Team" accessories.

Eventually a total of Ten different attachments would be available in the Trac-Team line!

Sno-Thro attachment
Reel Mower
Rotary Mower
Lawn Vaccum
Rotary Broom
Shredder/Grinder
Shredder/Bagger
Rotary Tiller
(so far only confirmed for the 932000 series)
and..going on the rear of the tractor, rather than the front:
A trailing wheeled "sulky" seat to create a riding mower!

They are talked about on page 5 about 3/4 of the way down.

$50, with a running engine would be a good buy.

Chevy engine orange is pretty close and it's what is the most common paint used. I have a couple cans for my two Ariens.
Lot's of painting ideas in that Ariens History, also able to see photos of units that are painted with the engine paint.

I have a weakness for Orange Ariens machines , stereo recievers, motorcycles, yardsales and
brunettes. I'm just not sure in what order..lol

You are allowed to have as many as the above items you want, but don't be tempted to have more than ONE brunette or you forfeit all the other things.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Nice, I picked up a 1973 that is pretty much identical to that one about 6 months ago, also for cheap. I fixed it up a bit and it runs great now.
