I have two Ariens 32"s near me and I don't have the room or $$$ right now to get them. It's killing me because they're really cheap. One even runs !!
I had to choose and I grabbed a 1030 Snapper with battery start. I'm happy but trying to figure out how to squeeze in another Ariens without having to live out in the shed with it.

I've been warned. She doesn't know about the Snapper yet


That one's kind of near the factory isn't it ??

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

I hear that! It's a every day struggle to not buy machines that are so cheap.

Picked up a 10000 series the other day with a newer 7 horsepower tecumseh ohv engine for $35. I just simply could no pass up.

According to google maps it is about 50 minutes north west of Brillion.

Heck, two people can't hardly go to a fast food restaurant and eat on $35 anymore! That's a steal!

You need to get a bigger house with more hiding places, and more surfaces that require snow removal. Try gorilla tape over the wife's eyes...

Work fascinates me.

Here are a few pictures. We should start a thread to see who has the worst small engine horde. Currently I have 9 snow blowers. Few years back I was up to 26.

Guy I got it from claims the belt keeps snaping.

Also the scraper was worn too deep. So the bucket is not salvageable without some serious welding.

That's the one you got for $35! You sure got a heck of a deal there. Down from 26 to 9. It's good to hear you're dealing with your addiction.
