Model 924040. Just received for Nada... :)
Just got this from a neighbour this afternoon. I remember his Father using it years ago. He said it hasn't run in about 2 years and had it sitting out behind his shed uncovered.
I originally was thinking of passing this on to an elder friend of mine who wanted a small blower to complement his Kubota tractor mounted blower. Something to do pathways, etc. Now I'm not sure what I want to do with it.
History is that it stopped blowing because the auger gearbox was gone, possibly from a piece of firewood picked up in the driveway.
Can't move the speed control lever... seems like the friction wheel is rusted onto it's shaft. Soaked everything in penetrating oil and will let it sit for a while.
Motor turns over freely and oil looks pretty clean. Doesn't seem to be any spark.
Tires were mostly flat and weather cracked but seemed to hold air when I blew them up...
Anyway... don't know if I will be keeping or not... here are a few pics...
Sorry... for some reason I can't post pics anymore...
