36" Ariens 13 HP Honda $700

This caught my eye on Craigslist.

https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/w...399110431.html


I currently run an MTD 12/33 which works fine on the 130 yard drive, but that machine looks nice.


Opinions?

I'd wanna investigate all that fresh orange paint and the reasons for it... but yeah that looks like a Monster.

Dunno about the price... the local guys will know more.

At $1,200 you think they could have at least put a few of the decals back on it.

Yeah there are definitely a few things "off". That deflector control certainly doesn't look like Ariens OE. And I like the creative handle bracing. The paint looks like a MAACO special where they don't bother to mask anything.

On the other hand as long as it functions reasonably well, it's less than half the price of a new unit with the same specs!

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

Kind of the best of both worlds. Good sturdy Honda engine with a well built blower !!

$1200 seems way off to me, but I'm picky. If you don't even take the deflector cable off before you spray bomb not much care was put into it. All the bolts and screws painted over will chip and peel when you need to replace all the bushings and bearings. The belt cover is not mounted on the left side, hole drilled through for the crank, half the chute crank rod is orange, half rust. The outside of the wheels are black, inside rust and white.
To me it looks like it was put together at deer camp over a weekend.
