924050 I picked up this weekend

Have been looking for a few weeks for a machine to help our neighbors that are getting up in age. I looked at a few and passed waiting for the right deal. It finally came around. Craigslist for $40. Besides the surface rust, all looks and runs/moves great. Ariens said it was manufactured in March of 1981. Projected to be in the 50s here this weekend so time to clean and tune up to get ready for the first snow.

I'm sure there will be lots of questions along the way so I figured I should sing up for SBF right away.

I was 10 when it was built - it definitely runs better than I do.

Trying to figure this all out.

It looks great for a machine as old as it is. A little sanding and some orange paint and it'll look even better! Someone took care of that!

Great deal, Older than mine, I have a 86ish Snapper but it starts easily and when I pulled it out a few weeks ago to make sure it was good for winter it started first pull, still running great.

Solid purchase! with or without the rust.

Just make sure that all the shear pins are intact now, rather than when its 10F.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Since the weather will still be unseasonably warm this weekend, I will be giving it a once over. I purchased a pack of shear pins, extra belts, oil for an oil change, and grease to hit the zerks. I'll also be sanding and painting so it should be ready for the first snow.
