Going to buy 12 yo Ariens Snow Blower

Going to buy a 12 yo Ariens model ??208. Any caveats? It has been well maintained and has chains on the tires. I am familiar with the owner and trust them but want to know what I should expect and what should I look for on inspection?
Thanks,

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Care to find out the full model number, and post some pictures and price. You will then get more opinions on your purchase.

Thanks,

Watch the video that SHRYP posted before pulling the trigger on any used blower. It'll show you what to look for.

Yep, grab some pop corn and watch the movie. Best guide out there. If you do buy it, hope you come back and show us pictures of it.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.
