Sir, your pants are on fire.

Maybe I've had too many drinks or lines or pills but come on !!

No structural damage ?? He even says so in the ad. And ... $700 bucks
That ring of rust around the inpeller housing would worry me too considering how the rest of the rust has been allowed to spread.

... and this is typical for Colorado craigslist sellers.
But then again this is Colorado, so who know how high these people are when the list these...

It is a unique machine. In the ad the seller says: "It is also self-propelled with the left handle." How many machines propel themselves with the handle? I mean handle driven, that's cool! Just saying!

I want to ask him for a picture of the impeller as I'm wondering if whatever bent those augers so badly made it to the impeller and the blades are flat !!

russkat, Apparently this is the '83 Corvette of snowblowers Does the Denver area not have HD or Lowes, or have snowblowers been made illegal? That's a worse price than the $1000 5hp Coleman Powermates during Katrina I thought people experience thought process problems when they move up in elevation, not down.
