Ariens Sno Thro Logo Location

Hi everyone I am a proud new owner of a 1969 Ariens Model 10970 Snowblower. It runs great it was just really rusty so I am in the process of restoring it (not showroom condition just removing the rust and then repaint)

I noticed that on my "Sno Thro" auger attachment the original Ariens logo is on the left side and not the right.

Does anyone know anything about this? 99% of the models I see have the logo on the right side, I must say I saw one other on the left. It may have been on SScotmans website I forget now.

Anyway I was just wondering if there was a difference (I doubt it).

I am itching to use my new toy but we got a rain/snow event this weekend. Bring on the snow

Yup the Ariens logo is on the left side. I can certain try to take some pictures as I noticed you don't have a 1969 on your site (other than an engine swap).

My father seems to think it was a mistake and done on a Friday (when people want to go home) or a Monday (when they are groggy from the weekend)

Also where is the auger attachment serial number located, that may help narrow it down. The guy I bought it off said it was all original and looked that way before I painted the engine covers.

The first bucket I had on my '62 had remnants of a decal on the left side. But like Scot said, I've never seen them on the left either. When I was redoing mine I put the sticker on the right side like everyone else's. I would tend to agree with that Friday, Monday idea, lol.

Attached is a picture from the day I bought it. It's not as rusty anymore I will need to take some after pictures when it's all finished.

But as you can see the original sticker is on the left side of the auger attachment! Not sure why, but I guess it makes it unique.

In the picture the scoop and tractor body look to be 2 different shades of orange. It could be just uneven fading or some one may have repainted the scoop at some point and put a new sticker on the left side

I thought that may be a possibility as well. The whole unit was left outside in the sun. I sanded the auger down to repaint it myself and see no signs of it being repainted before (no mulit layers of paint) or any sticker reminisce on the right side of the unit. The sticker itself looks REAL old

Glad to see another 69 here . I repainted mine with allis charmers orange from rust-oleum . It's the nearest shade of orange you can get to factory. with out paying $ 15. a can for factory paint.

Thanks 69ariens! I actually grabbed two cans of that exact paint myself. I may wait until spring to finish the auger as it's too cold to paint outside now.
