Video of my old 824 in action

My 1978 824 in action last winter. Been out twice already this year and going strong. I'm picking up a tall chute for it, any thoughts on that modification appreciated.

That was great. I never had any luck with the turf type tires but your seem to work great.

Great video, Benny! It's like snowblower porn. I feel like a bar bouncer watching "Roadhouse"

Mine is a similar model. I love those controls.

Thumbs up

Great video, what a brute! Handled a full augers worth of snow like nothing! I'm sure she has another 35 years ahead of her too.

Nice machine. Do you live out east is that the Nemo storm?. It looks like you have at least 2 feet of snow in your driveway. We never get that much snow in Minnesota out of just one storm. The most I can remember is about 17 or 18 inches at a time. Last year we had a total of 81 inches but the biggest snow storm dropped about 12 or 13 inches at a time. Lots of little 4 to 5 inch snowfalls especially in March.

Thanks, very nice video, take your camera person out for supper. (:
My 824 was an early 90s with black trim. I gave it to my niece and was working like new.
