My guess would be 53 years old.

this machine is 53 years old and still running great

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Garage
Sure looks about right.

It's had a hard life. No carb cover / heater box to keep ice and snow off the throttle and choke linkage. The starter handle is hanging loose and the left chain is broken and about to fall off and that's just from a casual look at the photos.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

You guy busted me. Should have worded my question better. I was looking for confirmation that it really was 53 years old. Never seen a Bob caT that looked like that, and was that old.

Too far from me to aquire.

For whatever the reason, early Bobcats w/the T-handle have been popping up a lot this fall on Craigslist listings in New England.

Here's an interesting one whereby the discharge chute on this particular early Bobcat goes throws in both directions - I had never seen one like this before.

As for the seller, he's been at it for months now w/this listing and he won't budge on price. Thus, that's why it is still around. The seller is located south of Boston in the Brockton/Easton area , which is basically in between Boston and Providence - Route 24 South....

Never seen one like that before. I snagged the photo from the Craigslist Ad so it won't be gone when the ad is removed.

Same here... never seen this dual set-up... pic will be posted in the thread. There are still quite a few out there, tucked away in sheds, garages, & and barns... unlike most of their competitors, these things were made out of quality steel and aluminum, so they didnt rot away.
