Seems way over-priced. IMHO 80 hrs seems like a lot of hours.


Ever notice how most snowblower photos do not show the inside of the chute. Must have been used on a gravel driveway.

This machine is at least 20 years old so if he can verify 80 hours that is way low. I usually look at condition over age. I know a lot of people are wary of the older 828's but I have seen some real nice ones. Some are way better than a lot of 928's.

One concern on these older 828's are the right side tranny. They almost always have to be serviced .

To me, 80 hours is barely broken in. Just needing to do some work on my Honda mower - I figure it is getting close to 1500, and just starting to smoke a bit, IE needing rings . . .

Think of it this way - let's just say an hour at a shot to clear, and a 4 month winter . . . 120 days or so, snow every other . . . That's 60 right there . . . Can't speak to the physical age, but if it's 20 years old, that's 4 hours per year, or maybe 4 to 8 times out? I'd worry more about rust from sitting still myself . . .


Not much use at all . . . (but still seems way over priced . . . )

Wow - 60 uses of your snowblower per year. Remind me not to live in your neck of the woods. We only get about 80" of snow per year, and i am in the Southern Adirondack Mtns.

Nothern Michigan - 300 to 400 inches per year, snow down from typically early Dec to last meltoff often May . . . 60 may well be low . . .
