I Spy an Old Ariens

I was driving past the local small engine repair shop, and saw this old machine in for repairs. So I jump out to grab a pic and the old timer was surprised anyone would be interested in such a machine. He did say they sure don't make them like this one any longer.

Wonder how they modified the wheels to fit the axle, our '67 are bolted on.

I've done that mod, just drill holes in the axle shaft. These were MTD wheels, had to shorten wheel's the inner flange IIRC.

I opted for the split rims on my 10M6 and 10M4, a snap to put on SnowHog with tubes, does not get any easier ......

Nice upgrade.

I'd love to know what, where and how you produced those final results. Were those the old early series 10M type split rims that you upgraded with the larger, more modern Snowhogs tires or did you start from scratch with some other supplier for split rims?

I got them years ago from a brick and mortar shop here in Bridgeport CT. I'll see if I can research to locate where to get them today ... I even put them on my Yardman 7100-2 as well.

They are something like this, but these are not the right hub bolt pattern, I'll keep looking, have to get ready for work now.
