I would guess the guy would take $50 or less, although he has $10 worth of bungee cords holding the chains on.

Wow, that is a serious-looking machine! Geez, at $70 for a 32" blower that likely just needs a carb cleaning, are you gonna beat the guy up too much on price?



What kind of engine is that? The muffler shroud means business.

Ariens 1024 Pro
Toro Power Clear 221QR
Toro Power Curve 1800

I E-MAILED the guy aboot it. I asked him where he was at here in the Paradise City. He told me 84th Nicollet Ave and that was it. Problem is I Don't Need Another Project right now. I have enough things to attend to in this so called life of mine. That is the 1'st 1 I have ever seen with the chute extension though. my main concerns about it are how many NLA parts it will need. I used to get the last of those parts at Johnson hardware he always had those things on hand. Now I would be up the creek without my Speedos. "HEY" BROTHER GIBBS Why don't you get it????????

The wife said "I don't think so!" And I can't really argue with her. I'm up to 10 snowblowers now, 8 here, 1 at work and 1 at my kids house. Time for some snowblower shuffling. I really like how that monster looks though, it is something!!
