924012 Ariens

I researched this a little, and it looks like it was built in the early 70's. Are parts still readily available?

There's one on Craigslist for $250. Should I get it?

That's a good machine, and parts definitely should be available!

You can read more about that Ariens series here: The Ariens 1960's and 1970's Sno-Thro info site.

Now of course while those machines are good in general, it also depends on how the particular unit has been taken care of. This video gives a good idea of what to look at when considering a used machine:

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

it was built in the mid 70s. 250 for a 32 inch blower is a steal imo

Bought it! Has electric start and really comfortable to operate compared to the Craftsman track drive that I traded for it.

Ariens 924012 8 hp/32". Built in 1974!
